Rays TV Deal With Fox Sports Net Florida

Tampa Bay RaysMaury Brown at The Biz of Baseball has this on the Rays new television deal with Fox Sports Net Florida:
The Tampa Bay Rays have inked a deal with Fox Sports Net Florida to show 150 regular season games between its two stations — FSNFL and Sun Sports. Financial terms were not released. The deal will be great for fans throughout Florida as both stations are carried statewide, but in exchange, those that do not have cable or satellite TV will be left in missing games as the Rays as ION WXPX Channel 66 has been dropped, the Rays last vestige into over-the-air broadcasting.
In other Rays broadcast news, the Rays also have moved their radio broadcasts to 620 WDAE, which has the largest AM signal in the state.


  1. I am a resident of Jacksonville. The games are listed to be seen on FSN or Sun but unfortunately boxing or fishing or some other thing shows up. I am 72 and can't afford to always go to Tampa to see the games. Why can't the games be shown in the Jacksonville area.

  2. Because Comcast has declined to pick up the new package of 75 Rays games that were added onto Sun Sports' lineup this season.
