NLDS start times announced for Dodgers-Nationals series.

The Dodgers and Washington Nationals will begin Game 1 of their National League Division Series at 2:30 p.m. (PT) Friday at Nationals Park. Game 2 is 1 p.m. Saturday.

Start times for the rest of the series have not been announced. Game 3 is Monday at Dodger Stadium, followed by an if-necessary Game 4 on Tuesday. Game 5, if needed, will be played a week from Thursday in D.C.

Fox Sports 1 holds the broadcasting rights to the series. Game 3 will also be telecast on MLB Network, which the network says will be offered as a “free preview” to subscribers across multiple platforms in each team’s home territory.

From the network’s press release:

In time for its two exclusive National League Division Series game telecasts, a free preview of MLB Network will be offered to video customers of AT&T U-verse, Comcast, Cox, DIRECTV, DISH Network, Frontier, RCN and Verizon FiOS from Thursday, October 6 through Tuesday, October 11. The free preview is in addition to MLB Network’s existing distribution with the top video providers in the U.S., and it will make MLB Network’s Division Series game telecasts accessible to more viewers than any prior year.
