In Montreal there were several years where there was no TV coverage and 
no English radio for the Montreal Expos.  I think there was a period 
where there was no French radio either, so there was no live coverage 
of Expos games at all.  Now there is cable TV coverage of 25 away games 
on a network that's not seen in the city of Montreal, and there is 
radio coverage in both English and French.
