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.
