Chicago Cubs: How to watch and listen to games on TV and radio this season
A new season begins for the Chicago Cubs, which includes a new television play-by-play announcer on Marquee Sports Network as well as a new grievance. Isn’t it funny how much fuss there was last year over whether Comcast’s Xfinity would come to terms on a carriage arrangement for Marquee, the Cubs’ channel that was developed in partnership with Sinclair Broadcast Group? Some cable consumers are dissatisfied with the premium that has been added to their bills. Perhaps there would be less grousing if there was greater confidence in this year’s squad.
Let’s get to the questions about television and radio.
For cord cutters, what are the streaming options for fans inside the Cubs’ TV market?
When the season began, AT T TV was the only stand-alone streaming service that offered Marquee content. Marquee and fuboTV announced a partnership less than 24 hours before the Cubs’ season opener, which will see the Cubs channel added to the service’s English-language channel package in the Chicago area and surrounding regions — including Indianapolis, South Bend, and Des Moines — beginning on April 7. Despite all of the fanfare when Hulu + Live TV acquired Marquee last year, the streaming service deleted the channel as soon as the season ended, and there has been no sign of a deal since.
The same may be said about other services.
(Fun fact: Dish Network’s chairman and former chief executive earned a total compensation package of $94.7 million in the previous year.)
What about streaming for those who aren’t cord cutters?
If you have a satellite or cable provider subscription that includes Marquee, you may access the service through thewatchmarquee.com website and mobile app, which is free.
How about people who live outside the Cubs’ designated TV market?
The majority of this information is intended for Cubs fans who live in the Cubs’ MLB designated television market. For those who live outside of the United States, a streaming subscription to MLB.TV will allow you to see the majority of the live games that Marquee televises.
Alternatively, a membership to Major League Baseball’s cable/satellite service Extra Innings. However, these packages do not include Cubs games in their area, and if there is a club in your market that competes against the Cubs, those games are also excluded from the package.
If a fan who lives in the Cubs TV market wants to get Marquee and nothing else, is that available?
There is no such thing as a “a la carte” menu. In the same way that other regional sports networks do, Marquee’s business model is built on receiving subsidies not just from individuals who watch, but also from people who subscribe to cable, satellite, and streaming services but do not. They aren’t quite ready to completely upend the economics of such carriage arrangements just yet. If customers continue to abandon those services for years to come, that situation may possibly reverse itself.
What channel is Marquee on my satellite or cable service?
You can’t order anything a la carte. In the same way that other regional sports networks do, Marquee’s business model is built on receiving subsidies not just from individuals who watch, but also from people who subscribe to cable, satellite, and streaming services but don’t tune in. But they aren’t quite ready to throw those carriage deals into disarray yet. If customers continue to abandon such services for years to come, that situation may possibly reverse itself in the future.
And the new TV play-by-play guy is?
On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, Jon “Boog” Sciambi is in the radio booth before the Chicago Cubs take on the Kansas City Royals in the Cactus League home opener at Sloan Park in Mesa, Ariz., according to the Chicago Tribune. (Photo courtesy of Armando L. Sanchez / Chicago Tribune)
Does Boog have to wear a tie?
It appears that this is not the case. Last season, Marquee forced its announcers to wear in full formal attire, even on the hottest summer days. This season, the company has given notice of a policy change on social media.
Who will handle announcing duties when Boog is off?
Sciambi is expected to miss about 30 games this season, according to Marquee, who has declared that there will be three backups for him. There’s also Fox Sports’ Chris Myers, who was originally named as a replacement for both Kasper and studio presenter Cole Wright during the previous season. Pat Hughes, who is beginning his 26th season as the Cubs’ radio broadcaster, is also in the Cubs’ television bullpen. Beth Mowins, who made history as the first woman to call a Cubs game during spring training, is also on Marquee’s list of potential hires.
Who else is contributing to Marquee telecasts?
Cole Wright will be joined in the studio by a large number of part-timers and visitors, including Boog, J.D., and reporter Taylor McGregor (and/or Elise Menaker) during games. Mark Grace, Ryan Dempster, Lou Piniella, Doug Glanville, Ryne Sandberg, Rick Sutcliffe, Sean Marshall, Ryan Sweeney, Carlos Pena, Mark DeRosa, and Dan Plesac are among those who have been named to the team.
What’s the regular studio situation going to be?
Wright will be joined by a rotating group of experts for pregame coverage, which will begin an hour before game time and conclude after the game has concluded.
Are all Cubs games on Marquee?
No. Major League Baseball’s television partners have the ability to take games for themselves. The national schedules are subject to change, and additional games will be added as the season goes, however the following games have been picked thus far:
- April 18 vs. Atlanta Braves (ESPN)
- May 22 vs. St. Louis Cardinals (Fox-32)
- May 23 vs. Cardinals (ESPN)
- June 5 vs. San Francisco Giants (Fox-32)
- June 26 vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (Fox-32)
- July 10 vs. Cardinals (Fox-32)
- August 15 vs. Cardinals (Fox-32)
- August 15 v
The Fox-32 games are the only ones that may be viewed for free on over-the-air television.
The Milwaukee Brewers on April 12 and the Atlanta Braves on April 28 will be shown on cable’s FS1. Those games will be broadcast on Marquee at the same time as the telecasts, but they will not be subject to a local ban.
What about TBS and other ESPN games?
TBS, which will not begin broadcasting games until June, will release its schedule in the coming weeks. If it chooses to broadcast Cubs games, it will be limited to one game per day in the Cubs’ television area and will not disrupt Marquee’s coverage. ESPN will be able to broadcast some of its midweek games alongside Marquee, though no games involving the Cubs have been announced as of this writing.
Will announcers get to travel this season?
It will be announced later by TBS, which will not begin broadcasting games until June. If it chooses to broadcast Cubs games, it will be limited to only one game per day in the Cubs’ television market and will not block Marquee’s coverage of the Cubs’ home games. At this time, ESPN has not announced any games involving the Cubs that will be shown on the other side of the field from Marquee.
What stations and markets are covered by the Chicago Cubs Radio Network?
- The following radio stations broadcast in Illinois:WROK-AM 1440 Rockford, WZPN-FM 96.5 Peoria, WFMB-AM 1450 Springfield, WGKC-FM 105.9 Champaign, WDZ-FM 103.1 Lawrenceville, WFRX-AM 1300 West Frankfort, WGEM-AM 1440 Quincy, WLDS-AM 1180 Jacksonville, WRAM-AM 1490 Princeton, WBAT-AM 1400 Marion, WBNL-AM The following radio stations broadcast in Iowa: WDBQ-AM 1490 Dubuque, KCNZ-AM 1650 Cedar Falls, KCPS-AM 1150 West Burlington, KJOC-AM 1170 Davenport, KADR-AM 1400 Elkader, KCIM-AM 1380 Carroll, KMCD-AM 1570 Fairfield, KWBG-AM 1590 Boone, and KNOD-FM 105.3 Harlan
- Nebraska:KNTK-FM 93.7 Lincoln
North and South Dakota? Minnesota? Nebraska?
Cubs supporters may be found anywhere. Take, for example, Nebraskans like Pete Ricketts and his parents, Joe and Marlene, who live in Lincoln. It’s possible that they enjoy driving around and listening to baseball games on the radio, but they may not have a subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio, which offers an MLB games package. As a result, having Pat and Ron on stations in Lincoln and Omaha is beneficial.
What channel is the Cubs game on? Your complete guide to watching games this season.
The Chicago Cubs’ games will soon be broadcast on their own channel, Marquee Sports Network, which should make it easier for fans to catch up on their favorite team’s exploits. Although it is not as simple as just turning on WGN-9 day or night — though it is generally day — it is far less difficult than guessing if the game was on NBC Sports Chicago, NBCSCH+, ABC-7, WGN, ESPN, FOX-32, or, on one occasion last year, the CW-26. It’s still a long way from becoming a one-stop shop. So, it’s likely that you have some inquiries.
Are all Cubs games on Marquee?
Of course, because Marquee claims to be the “official” home of Cubs baseball, you’d assume so, but it isn’t always true. MLB’s national television partners have the ability to pick and choose which games they broadcast, therefore removing them off Marquee. The Cardinals will be featured on “Sunday Night Baseball” on August 9th and September 6th, respectively, according to ESPN’s schedule. A pair of games are broadcast on FOX-32. If the situation warrants it, further games might be added in September.
Are the Cubs games not on FOX-32 and ESPN’s ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ only on Marquee?
No, not at all. The Cubs’ six games against the Chicago White Sox will be shown on NBC Sports Chicago as well, as you might expect. It’s also worth noting that Cubs games on FS1 are not blacked out in the Chicago area, despite the fact that they are shown on Marquee as well. If TBS choose to broadcast Cubs games, it will be permitted to remove the blackout once throughout the season and air the games directly opposite Marquee’s programming.
What about fans who live outside the Cubs’ TV market?
Because of their position in Major League Baseball, the Cubs have a tremendously vast television market that spans many states.
However, if you live outside of that area, you will continue to use MLB’s subscription services if you want to watch Cubs games that are not broadcast on local television or national networks, just as you have in prior years.
What about fans who don’t subscribe to cable, satellite or streaming services and rely on an antenna for free, over-the-air broadcast TV?
You’ll only be able to watch games that are broadcast on FOX-32. However, it is simply the way things are these days. It’s also unlikely that you’ll see the White Sox, Bulls, or Blackhawks on television, unless a broadcaster with a national agreement with a league takes up a game. The White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks will show the games they own on NBC Sports Chicago.
Is every cable, satellite and streaming service in the Cubs’ TV market offering Marquee?
It all depends on your service provider. In the Chicago region, Comcast offers it on Ch. 202 in high definition and Ch. 58 in regular definition on channel 202. Many additional services’ channel locations may be discovered on this page as well. A comprehensive list should be provided at this location.
Does Marquee have an app?
Without a doubt, it does. As long as you can demonstrate that you are paying someone for access to Marquee, you may also watch games on the Marquee website, which can be found here.
Len and J.D. still calling the games?
In fact, key announcers Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies have returned to the show. Regardless of whether the Cubs are playing at Wrigley Field, they will be announcing the games from there. A number of guest analysts were announced by Marquee early this year, and it is unclear how many would be required or how they will be employed. During a July exhibition versus the Twins, Mark Grace made a remote appearance from his kitchen, where he was accompanied by a Gold Glove trophy on the counter behind him.
How about in-game reporter Kelly Crull?
All MLB ballparks are equipped with video-game fan noises that are piped in. Fox has stated that it will generate the illusion of fans in the stands, which will be more of an illusion in certain ballparks than others, particularly late in the game, according to the company’s claims.
Who’s hosting pregame and postgame on Marquee?
Cole Wright, a former sports broadcaster for ESPN and the NFL Network, serves as the show’s principal studio host.
Anything else you want to add?
Hey, Chicago, what are your thoughts? The Cubs will be on television today (probably). This season, the Cubs will be embroiled in a knock-down, drag-out battle for first place in the National League Central against some equally difficult opposition in the division. Following a summer that included some dubious moves — such as dealing away Yu Darvish and declining to give Anthony Rizzo a contract extension — there’s a sense of gloom in the air at Wrigley Field once again this season. Despite this, Cubs fans continue to be ardent supporters of the organization, and they will be seeking to catch as much Cubs baseball as they can in 2021, whether they do it with or without a cord.
There are, in reality, a handful of them.
How to watch Cubs games without cable
This season, there are various choices for individuals who do not have cable to watch Cubs games online. Of course, the (stupid) blackout rules imposed by Major League Baseball apply: — If you’re in the area, fuboTV offers Marquee Sports Network, the Cubs’ regional sports network, although there are blackout limitations in effect. This means that if you live in the Chicago area for MSN, you can watch Cubs baseball on fuboTV. However, if you live outside of the Chicago area, you will be unable to watch Cubs games on the streaming service since fuboTV will not broadcast the out-of-market RSN.
All of this is included in the service’s “Choice” plan, which costs $84.99.
You can watch every game from every team for $129.99 a season, or $24.99 per month if you subscribe for the whole season.
Keep in mind that if you are inside the Cubs market, you will not be able to see the games.
— There are a few alternatives for nationally broadcast games, with a few exclusions, including: ESPN, MLB Network, and FS1 are available on fuboTV, SlingTV, AT T TV, YouTube TV, and Hulu+ Live Sports. You may use the MLB’s blackout tool to see whether any games are being broadcast in your location.

How to Watch Chicago Cubs MLB Games Live in 2022
It is possible to watch Chicago Cubs games live online or on television without having to subscribe to a costly cable television package. NBC Sports Chicago broadcasts these games most of the time, but that may alter based on the schedule, the type of game, or national interest.
Live StreamingChicago Cubs Games
The Chicago Cubs broadcast the vast majority of their games on NBC Sports Chicago, a regional sports network based in Chicago. When it comes to streaming services, regional sports networks (RSNs) are rare, and when they do exist, they are generally only available for a premium charge or as part of a package deal. The following are the live streaming providers that provide access to NBC Sports Chicago: † It is possible that receiving this channel will incur an additional premium on top of the standard plan pricing.
The Major League Baseball also offers MLB.tv, which broadcasts all out-of-market games for all clubs. Unfortunately, if you are located inside what is deemed the team’s “home territory,” you will be unable to watch Chicago Cubs games on our website. If you find yourself trying to watch a game on MLB.TV that has been blacked out, you will need to use a virtual private network (VPN) to disguise your location.
If the Major League Baseball (MLB) attempts to block live streaming of Chicago Cubs games because you are within their home viewing region, you may circumvent the restriction by using a virtual private network (VPN). When you use a VPN, or virtual private network, the specific location of your house is hidden from view. So that teams cannot detect whether you are within their “blackout radius,” you are free to watch any sports team of your choosing. NordVPN is our top-rated VPN service, as well as one of the most well-regarded in the industry.
I can testify for the fact that they function for this specific use-case because I have personally tested them.
You receive an IP address that is registered from a distant location (such as Germany, Italy, or Seattle) after purchasing their service.
This IP address serves as a decoy for the many big sports teams who seek to “blackout” their streaming services for those of us who want to just watch it on our televisions or laptops using our regular IP addresses.
In the context of viewing television and your local sports teams, virtual private networks (VPNs) are not unlawful, and anybody may use a VPN service to watch sports without worry of the authorities showing up at their door.
The act of accessing the web or streaming shows using another IP address is totally legal, and it is something that even the greatest corporations in the world do on a regular basis. We would never encourage someone to hide behind a VPN service in order to engage in unlawful activity.
