Here’s how you can watch the Cubs this spring

Al Yellon

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — In January, the Cubs released their spring broadcast schedule, which included 34 of the 36 games being carried by a Cubs broadcast channel (either cubs.com, 670 The Score, WGN-TV or NBC Sports Chicago). 10 of those games are being televised by the Cubs broadcast team.

With spring games beginning Friday, all teams have now released their broadcast schedules and I can report to you that 12 other Cubs games will be carried by the TV network of that day’s opponent (as well as one national game on ESPN).

Here’s the updated spring broadcast schedule, which will also live on the front page. The only two games not being carried by a Cubs broadcast outlet (March 18 vs. the Royals, March 24 vs. the Mariners) will be televised on the other team’s TV channel. All the TV games will be available online via MLB.tv if you have a subscription, and there shouldn’t be any blackouts for spring games.

Some games will be broadcast on delay or rebroadcast on MLB Network and I will note that in each day’s game preview, as well as the other broadcast outlets for each game.

All games at 2:05 CT through March 10, then at 3:05 CT, unless otherwise noted. (ss) indicates a split-squad day. (ss) indicates split squad. Opponents’ TV channels listed in italics.
