“As the network that produces and airs all available Orioles games, MASN and MASN2 will now be the exclusive channels to watch Orioles baseball in the Mid-Atlantic region. Also for the first time, MASN and MASN2 will be the only channels where you can watch each ‘O’s Xtra’ pregame and postgame shows,” a MASN press release stated.
WJZ will air an hour of Opening Day coverage on Thursday, March 30 at 12:30 p.m., but will not play the game. The Orioles can, however, still be seen “on a local affiliate if its network has rights to a game,” The Baltimore Sun reports.
Orioles games have been airing on Baltimore broadcast TV since 1954. The absence of the 2018 season marks the first time in 64 years.
