MLB Network launches all-highlights channelBy: Richard Stalker - April 11, 2012
MLB pretty much has the right idea when it comes to the availability of it’s product Following in the footsteps of the NFL and their Red Zone and the NCAA and their Goal Line channels, Major League Baseball has launched their competitor, MLB Strike Zone. The channel will take viewers on a high-speed trip around Major League Baseball on Tuesday and Friday nights during the regular season. When live game telecasts air on MLB Network, MLB Network Strike Zone will bring fans to every game across the league, with up-to-the-minute highlights, live look-ins and updates, all commercial-free.
“MLB Network Strike Zone will provide baseball fans with the award-winning coverage of all 30 clubs they’ve come to rely on from MLB Network,” said Tony Petitti, President and CEO of MLB Network. “We’re excited to continue to expand the reach and scope of MLB Network’s programming.”
As a big baseball fan myself, I’m not quite sure how well this will work. If they cut in to show strikeouts or plays at the plate too, I could see this being good. But just scoring plays? There are really not that many.
MLB Network Strike Zone will launch on Bright House Networks, DIRECTV, DISH Network and Time Warner Cable and will be available today!
