COLUMBIA — Local Cardinals fans with DirecTV will be able to watch Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night.
Meghan McLarty, senior public relations associate at DirecTV, said in a release that the company received News-Press & Gazette Co.'s permission to temporarily return its five FOX channels so people could watch the game.
"Both NPG and DIRECTV are optimistic about completing a new agreement to return all channels in their entirety very soon," she said.
The St. Louis Cardinals will play the Boston Red Sox at 7:07 p.m. Wednesday in Fenway Park for Game 1 of the World Series. The game will be nationally broadcast on FOX, whose local affiliate is one of News-Press & Gazette's networks that is no longer carried on DirecTV.
News-Press & Gazette owns ABC 17/KMIZ and MyZouTV as well. Both stations are also blacked out on DirecTV.
