Cubs TV Broadcast Schedule 2008 Download for Outlook

cubs broadcast schedule 2008.csv

The Cubs will appear on WGN, Comcast, Comcast Plus, WCIU, ESPN, and TBS this year–it’s enough to drive a Cubs fan crazy. I’ve created my own .csv file WITH the entire broadcast schedule. While Cubs.com offers the Cubs’ schedule as a .csv file for importing into Microsoft Outlook and other calendar applications, their schedule does not include the television broadcast stations–that’s why I created my own. Never miss a game!

Downloading the Cubs Broadcast Schedule 2008.csv file:


DO NOT simply click on the link. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) on it and select “Save Target As…”, “Save Link As…”, or “Download link to disk” (depending on your browser).

Save the file to a location that you will remember.

After it has finished downloading, locate the file and follow your calendar program’s instructions for importing events.
