Cubs Announce 2015 Regular-Season TV Schedule

New, comments

This year's will require careful attention.

The Cubs are going to be on four different local channels in 2015 -- CSN Chicago, WGN-Ch. 9, WLS-Ch. 7 and WPWR-Ch. 50 -- as well as occasionally on Fox-TV and ESPN on regional or national broadcasts. So this schedule will likely come in handy for you. I'll make sure it's on the front page at all times once the season begins, and also will have TV information on every day's game preview. Here are a few highlights.

WGN-Ch. 9's first of 45 broadcasts will be Tuesday, April 7 at 7:05 p.m. vs. the St. Louis Cardinals, the club’s second game of the season following the national opener on ESPN2 on Sunday, April 5. (Note: I believe it's ESPN2 because ESPN's main channel is committed to the NCAA women's basketball tournament that day.) WLS-Ch. 7, a new television home for the Cubs in 2015, will have the first of its scheduled 24 games on Wednesday, April 8 at 1:20 p.m. vs. the Cardinals. CSN Chicago will televise as many as 87 games this year. The first will be Saturday, April 11 at 7:10 p.m. at the Colorado Rockies (this game is scheduled for CSN+).

You'll note I mentioned WPWR-Ch. 50 above. Surprise! As had been done in the past via WCIU-Ch. 26, some of the WGN-produced games will air on My50 Chicago.

Len Kasper returns for his 11th season in the Cubs’ television booth and will be joined by Jim Deshaies for their third season together broadcasting Cubs baseball.

Since you're likely wondering if you live in one of the blackout areas in Illinois, Iowa or Indiana, as of now you might wind up shut out of the 69 over-the-air games unless stations in your market pick up the telecasts for either their main channel or a digital subchannel. Wish I had better news.

Here's the full schedule. All times CDT.
