Your complete guide where to find the Washington Nationals/Chicago Cubs NLDS on your TV, radio, computer and phone this week.

The time has come or the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs to meet in the 2017 National League Divisional Series. Unless you have a ticket, you are going to watch or listen to the series.

Sadly, MASN does not have the broadcast rights to games. Fans of Bob Carpenter and FP Santangelo can see them on expanded pre- and post-game’s with Johnny Holliday and Ray Knight before or after the game.

Instead, TBS is the exclusive home of the NL playoffs this season. Ernie Johnson and Ron Darling call the action while Sam Ryan roams the dugouts for stories in-game. Along with the Los Angeles Dodgers-Arizona Diamondbacks tilt, Casey Stern, Jimmy Rollins, Gary Sheffield and Pedro Martinez are on their studio panel.

More from District on Deck

Unlike television, Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler will call the action locally on WJFK-FM and the Washington Nationals radio network. Every game and every pitch of the NLDS can be heard wherever you listened this summer.

Nationally, ESPN Radio has English language rights to all playoff games. Dave Flemming and Jessica Mendoza are on those broadcasts with members of Baseball Tonight doing studio work between games.

If you are in the Chicagoland area, or looking to hear other broadcasters, Pat Hughes, Ron Coomer and Len Kasper have the Cubs point of view on WSCR radio. Kasper, normally the lead television voice, will call the fifth inning.

Those looking for the game in Spanish can watch CNN En Espanol for all the NL playoff action. Pete Manzano and Fernando Palacios have you covered.

If you have an MLB.TV subscription, the series is included as part of the package. Mind you, the delay is roughly 30-40 seconds behind the action. The Nats and Cubs radio broadcasts are included.

For those of you with cable, your provider will stream TBS with authorization. So, if you are out, you can watch legally on your cellphone or computer if you are away from the television.

District on Deck plans live tweets of every game and a full postgame live on YouTube. We are on within a minute or two after the final pitch with live updates and conversation on Twitter throughout the game.
