There are other ways to watch World Series

With Fox and Cablevision (which owns Newsday) still at odds over a retransmission agreement, how can baseball fans who are Cablevision customers watch the World Series beginning Wednesday night?

Some possibilities:

Remember, Fox is a broadcast network, and thus available free over the air. You will need the right kind of television antenna in this digital signal era, though. Your local electronics store can help.

There are various online streams in cyberspace, but their legality is as fuzzy as the pictures often are. Consider instead, an MLB-sanctioned service that offers live feeds from eight angles, plus Fox audio, for $9.95 for the entire series.

Only people outside North America can watch a simulcast of Fox's coverage via So consider packaging your World Series viewing with a vacation in Paris or Paraguay.

Bars and restaurants were hit hard by the recession, like most everyone else. Help a local business by watching at one with friends. But assign a designated driver. Remember, these games can last four hours or more.
