Fans Plot World Series Sweep to Bars, Amid TV Blackout

Baseball fan Jon Eisenstein set up a new 55-inch, 3-D television at his house ahead of the World Series opener today. He can’t count on watching the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants on it though.

Eisenstein is a customer of Cablevision Systems Corp., which lost the rights to show Fox broadcasts including the World Series in a fee dispute with Fox parent News Corp. So he’ll likely head to a sports bar near his home to catch the games.
