Chicago Sports Network Availability.

I live in Des Moines Iowa...MLB blackout capital of the world...6 teams.    I live in a condo where only Mediacom is possible.  Mediacom in Des Moines refuses to carry Chicago Sports Network or MLB a network.    Can I get the Chicago Sports NETWORK IN Des Moines to watch the cubs games?or will the games be blacked out?   What will this cost me per month?

According to the lookup tool, it appears that DirecTV Now offers FS Midwest and NBC Sports Chicago as the RSNs in Des Moines.  No idea if either of those are what you are calling Chicago Sports Net, if either carries the Cubs games, or what their blackout rules would be.  RSNs don't cost "extra" - they are part of all the packages Just Right and above (not included with the smallest package).
