Tigers TV Notes

A couple of items from FSN Detroit:

DIRECTV Channel Change: DIRECTV has shifted many of the regional sports network channel locations. FSN Detroit has moved to channel 663. The previous channel, 636, is still active for a couple of weeks. When tuning to Ch. 636, it instructs viewers of the move to 663.

Saturday at Tampa Bay: This Saturday’s game at Tampa Bay will be joined in progress at 7:06 pm, in accordance with MLB broadcast rules (game time is 6:10). MLB rules prohibit local telecasts for Saturday games starting after 1:10 and prior to 7:05 pm Eastern time – the exclusive window for the FOX Saturday Baseball Game of the Week. Major League Baseball granted FSN Detroit permission to join the Tigers-Rays game in progress immediately following the exclusivity window. FSN Detroit will re-air the Tigers-Rays game in its entirety at 10:00 PM.

Spanish Broadcast
: On August 9th FSN Plus will broadcast the game in Spanish. The Spanish-language coverage begins at 7:00 PM with play-by-play announcer Clemson Smith Muñiz and analyst Adrian Burgos, Jr. The English-language telecast of that night’s Tigers-A’s game with Mario Impemba and Rod Allen airs as usual on FSN Detroit and FSN HD. This is in conjunction with the Tigers Fiesta Tigres celebration.
