I read a few years ago the Cubs made twice as much money per game when they were broadcast on Comcast vs WGN. Local broadcast money is what makes the big boys the big boys. You don't get as much on an over the air station.
I don't know if MLB requires a number of telecasts to be on a over the air channel. I know the NBA requires 30 or 35.
