#Cubs announce 2016 TV schedule
The Cubs announced their 2016 regular season television schedule, and fans will be able to watch games on Comcast SportsNet Chicago, WGN-TV and WLS-TV/ABC 7.
WLS-TV/ABC 7 will televise Opening Night from Anaheim on April 4 at 9:05 p.m. CT, the station’s first of 25 games this season. Comcast SportsNet Chicago has its first of as many as 86 games on April 5 at 9:05 p.m. CT from Anaheim (this game is scheduled for CSN+). WGN-TV’s first of 45 broadcasts will take place on April 8 at 8:40 p.m. CT from Arizona. WGN-TV will also televise the Cubs’ home opener on April 11 vs. the Reds at 7:05 p.m. CT.
Cubs games have been televised by WGN since 1948 (a handful of the 45 WGN-TV produced games will be televised by WPWR My50 Chicago). This will be Comcast SportsNet’s 12th season televising the Cubs and the second for WLS-TV/ABC 7.
Len Kasper returns for his 12th season in the Cubs’ television booth and will be joined by Jim Deshaies for their fourth season together broadcasting Cubs baseball.
