FOX Sports Arizona will televise 159 D-backs games
As the Arizona Diamondbacks embark on their 20th Anniversary season, the television network that has been with the D-backs since day one is proud to announce it will televise 159 games in 2018. All broadcasts will also be streamed on the FOX Sports GO app and 25 games will be offered in a Spanish telecast on FOX Sports Arizona Plus.
In addition to 159 games on FOX Sports Arizona or FOX Sports Arizona Plus, there are exclusive national telecasts on FOX (June 9 at Colorado), FS1 (June 26 at Miami) and ESPN (May 13 vs Washington). The FOX and FS1 broadcasts also stream on FOX Sports GO.

Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly return for their seventh season together in the D-backs television booth. Jody Jackson & Todd Walsh, who have a combined 35 years of covering the D-backs for FOX Sports Arizona between them, will once again share hosting duties for the network’s pre and post-game shows. They will be joined by two of the biggest names in D-backs history – Mark Grace and Brandon Webb – who will return to provide analysis during the “D-backs Live” pregame and postgame shows. Kate Longworth also returns to work as a reporter for various series as well.
For the third consecutive season, 25 D-backs games are going to be offered in Spanish on FOX Sports Arizona Plus. The schedule consists of games during home weekend series including San Diego (April 21-22), Houston (May 5-6), Washington (May 12), Miami (June 2-3), New York Mets (June 16-17), San Francisco (June 30 – July 1), San Diego (July 7-8), Colorado (July 21-22), San Francisco (Aug. 4-5), Seattle (Aug. 25-26), Atlanta (Sept. 7-9) and Colorado (Sept. 21-23).
