Orioles Programming Note for Saturday, April 17th

Due to Major League Baseball's national broadcast restrictions, the Baltimore Orioles 4:00 p.m. ET game in Oakland on Saturday afternoon cannot be televised by MASN.  

Major League Baseball's agreements with national television networks forbid any regional network from broadcasting any Major League Baseball game during the window reserved for nationally televised baseball games.  

According to MLB's website:

Due to Major League Baseball exclusivities, live games occurring each Saturday with a scheduled start time after 1:10 PM ET or before 7:05 PM ET and each Sunday with a scheduled start time after 5:00 PM ET, will be blacked out in the United States (including the territories of Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands). 

For more information, please see MLB's blackout policy:

As the home team, Oakland chooses the game's start time and, unfortunately, decided to begin Saturday's game early.
