[UPDATE: 11:23pm] (just because we want to yell at somebody right now. The TBS deal with MLB won’t expire until after the 2013 season with TBS retaining exclusive rights to televise the ALCS in even-numbered years and the NLCS in odd-numbered years…In the end, we all lose.
[UPDATE: 10:50pm] Sox & Dawgs has the official announcement from TBS.
Two circuit breakers in our Atlanta transmission operations tripped causing the master router and its backup – which are necessary to transmit any incoming feed outbound – to shut down. This impacted our live feed from being distributed to any of the other networks in the Turner portfolio and caused the delay in our coverage. Both our primary and backup routers were impacted by this problem. We apologize to baseball fans for this mishap that caused a delay in our coverage.
[UPDATE: 8:49pm] TBS is describing the technical difficulties as a “router problem”. They might want to come up with a better explanation than that, because it sounds like they are blaming this on a part you can get at Best Buy for $30.
[UPDATE: 8:29pm] TBS has finally got their act together after experiencing “technical difficulties”. Can’t imaging MLB will give TBS any more postseason packages after the current deal expires.
[UPDATE: 8:23pm] ESPN China (in English) has the game if you know how to do that sort of thing.
[8:14pm] We have now confirmed with people in several different cities, that tonight’s ALCS game 6 is not being shown on TBS. The game HAS started according to MLB.com. TBS is currently showing some awful sitcom (The Steve Harvey Show) and will not explain what is going on.
