The Phillies have officially announced their 2011 broadcast schedule

From the press release:

As the Phillies prepare to head to spring training in just a few short weeks, the countdown to the start of the regular season is already underway.

In 2011, fans will be able to view all 162 Phillies games over the course of the regular season from the comfort of their homes.

Comcast SportsNet will carry 103 games on their network. The Comcast Network will also air three games in April.

MyPHL17 will air the Phillies 45 times during the season including the home opener against the Houston Astros on April 1.

ESPN has picked up two Sunday games to air nationally while FOX will broadcast nine Saturday games during the regular season.

All Phillies games can be heard on the Phillies’ Flagship station WPHT, The Big Talker 1210 AM, in Spanish on WUBA (1480 AM) and the Phillies Radio Network.

It’s possible that MLB and ESPN will add more Sunday Night games.  The four-letter network usually only schedules the first part of the season and then works with the league to get more compelling matchups (read: no crap teams) on the air later on.

Regardless of how many Sunday nighters the Phils end up with, for each one we will get to enjoy a Jon Miller/Joe Morgan-free viewing and listening experience since the two of them got the boot this past November.
