Phillies playoffs, Sixers season opener, Flyers: How to watch all the A guide to watching Philadelphia sports during a jam-packed week


What a time to be alive for Philadelphia sports fans – the Phillies play Game 1 of the NLCS against the San Diego Padres tonight; the undefeated Eagles beat the Cowboys; the Flyers won their first two games; and the Sixers open the NBA season tonight against the Boston Celtics.

The rest of this week, and the weekend, are jam-packed with local sports to watch on TV. That combined with how well the teams are playing – and in the Sixers case, the expectations for the new season – has created the most exciting week of games in Philadelphia at least in the last 11 years, the last time the Phillies were in the playoffs.

Even the Philadelphia Union, the best team in the MLS Eastern Conference, are getting in on the party. The club plays its opening playoff match Thursday in Chester against FC Cincinnati.

Just imagine if the Eagles were playing Sunday, instead of on their bye week. If the Phillies can advance to the World Series … but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

For the rest of this week, we’re here to help keep track of all the excitement. Here’s our Philly sports-specific TV guide for watching the Phillies, Sixers, Flyers and Union games through Sunday, Oct. 23:
