Fox Sports South programming

I don't understand why I can't watch the sports shows being advertised in my area. I understand the mlb blackout map but the "home"team doesn't offer a broadcast in my area. If a team doesn't offer a broadcast then there shouldn't be a blackout. Who do I need to address this with?

    No territory is unclaimed. Are you not getting FS South on your system?

    I am, and it works according to the guide menu except for when a baseball game comes on. At that moment the guide still shows the game but programming is not the baseball game.

    You would need to address this with Major League Baseball.

    Well, are you deemed inside a team's territory?  I read the FS South is really three networks flying under a common flag.

    If you are in one of the zebra-striped markets, you might only get "one" game if multiple teams are playing at the same time, and therefor the game on FS South gets blacked out while a game on another RSN gets shown, but since you don't get that RSN, you get nothing.
