Where will the Athletics be broadcast on your TV for spring training? Quite a few places, actually.

Between MLB Network, CSN California, and CSN Bay Area's Giants-A's games, the Oakland Athletics will have 10 televised live spring training games, with MLB Network carrying a further six games on a delayed basis. Last season, only 11 spring games were televised overall against the 16 this year.

The biggest increase comes from MLB Network, which will show five live simulcasts of opposing coverage. Last year, MLB Network showed only one game live that was not otherwise available on CSN California.

A's television flagship CSN California will carry just two spring games, one on Sunday, March 8 against the Chicago White Sox at Hohokam Stadium and the other on Thursday, April 2 against the Giants at AT&T Park. CSN California carried one game from Arizona and one game from AT&T Park last year as well.

Giants flagship CSN Bay Area will carry three contests against the A's, one from Scottsdale Stadium on Thursday, March 26, and the two games that conclude the exhibition Bay Bridge Series on Friday, April 3, and Saturday, April 4.

Broadcasts of any game shown by an opponent's television network will be shown on MLB Network on a delayed basis if not live. If previous practice holds true, opponent broadcasts will also be available live to MLB.TV subscribers without blackout restrictions during spring.

MLB Network is pretty much devoting its March calendar to rebroadcasting as many spring games as possible, so most of the games are meant for you to set your DVR. There are six A's games being shown on a delayed basis:
