As everyone knows by now that MLB will be launching its network on january 1,2009 and it is supposed to be in 50 million homes making it the biggest launch for a channel in television history. and they are going to broadcast 26 mlb games next year,and have 24/7 baseball coverage,do you guys think they will show milb games sometimes,or talk about the games and the prospects ?
what do you guys think about the channel ? post opinions i think its going to be awesome,i cant wait till the channel debuts im going to be watching it a lot.
I think this channel is going to be great. No offenese to other league run sports networks, but MLB Network has the most variety of topics to produce shows for.
Historical shows:Replay Classic GamesBiography: Hall of Famers19 Century baseballStories about famous baseball places (i.e. Wrigley Field)Negro LeaguesDefunct Team histories
Variety Shows:Fantasy Baseball & GamingBaseball Trivia showsSABRmetricians stats showArts & Literatures on baseballBaseball Card & Memorabilia show International Baseball ShowCoaching & FundamentalsA new Baseball Bunch show featuring Cal Ripken or Tony Gwynn.
Games:MLBMinor LeaguesNCAA Foreign LeaguesWinter LeaguesYouth Leagues Women's Leagues
I think there are plenty of possibilities for this network.
I love the idea. Something baseball every day, every second, year round. I'm sure they will show some old game, newer games as well as other games, and baseball specials.
Does anybody know if it will be on Verizon Fios? Or is it just Comcast Cable/ Direct TV/ Other?
