Hello and happy Tuesday.
On Monday it was announced that the San Francisco Giants upcoming series against the Philadelphia Phillies — which runs Friday through Sunday at Oracle Park — will be broadcast exclusively on Peacock, a streaming division of NBC.
In other words, you can’t watch this weekend’s game on NBC Sports Bay Area. Instead, you’ll have to watch it through Peacock, which you can download as an app, or find on your TV if you have Comcast or Xfinity.
Peacock is free — though there are paid versions, as well — so you can still watch the game. And it’s only for the two home markets, so if you live outside of the Bay Area or Philadelphia, you’ll still have to watch on MLB TV (though you’ll get the Peacock broadcast).
For these broadcasts the two broadcast teams are being combined. So you’ll get the Giants crew of Mike Krukow and Jon Miller as well as the Phillies crew of Jimmy Rollins and John Kruk.
Kind of odd. But still Giants baseball, so how bad can it be?
Don’t answer that.
