Fans of the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles will need cable to watch their teams’ games on TV this season.

The Baltimore Sun reported that no Baltimore or Washington broadcast station will carry any Nationals or Orioles games in 2018.

Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN), the cable network co-owned by the Nationals and Orioles, will be the exclusive channel for game broadcasts.

In 2017, Washington’s CBS affiliate, WUSA9, simulcast 20 MASN-produced Nationals games, according to the team’s website. The Washington Times has sent WUSA9 a request for comment.

MASN and MASN2 will be the only channels to carry “Nats Xtra” pregame and postgame shows, the Sun report added.

For the Orioles, Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ-TV will not broadcast any Orioles games in 2018, marking the first time the franchise’s games won’t be available on public airwaves since the team first came to the city in 1954.
