Comcast changes its mind, decides to offer Twins game to customers for free

MLB Network has exclusive rights to Friday night's Twins game. Don't have it? Here's how to get it.

MINNEAPOLIS — The case of the Minnesota Twins, a team with 101 wins, 307 home runs, the evidence is clear, the team’s good.

But as the team moves into the playoffs, tracking them down requires a little bit of detective work.

If you listen to the team on the radio, you’re in the clear, nothing will change.

The Twins radio network will broadcast all home and away games during the playoffs.

But if you plan to catch the team on TV this week, mapping out your options looks more like solving a murder case.

Friday night’s game against the Yankees will only be available on the MLB Network.

This channel usually isn’t included in basic cable packages.

If your package doesn’t include the MLB Network, some cable providers are offering a free preview of the MLB Network so you can watch the game Friday night.

Originally Comcast said it was not going to offer this free preview to its customers, but after seeing such high demand the company has decided to offer free previews of the MLB Network up until October 11th.

The MLB network is also offering a special post season package for a one-time fee of $25.

This package will include games this post season and will also get you access to games during next year’s Spring Training.

You can also get the MLB Network on Playstation Vue, Sling or Youtube-TV through your streaming device.

All three streaming services are offering free trials to new customers.

After game one, all other Twins games this post-season will be broadcast on either FS1 or FOX.

If you're a Sling or Dish customer you may already know FS1 is no longer available due to an ongoing contract dispute, but for everyone else games 2,3,4 and 5 should be fairly easy to track down.

Another option is to watch the games at Target Field.

The Twins are hosting viewing parties for Games 1 and 2.

Tickets are free, but they need to be reserved.
