The MLB Network Launches Website, Promotes Opening Week

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

The MLB Network's website went live recently, and not only is it very pretty (almost like a usable version of the actual MLB site), but it even includes a bunch of promo vids for you to peruse. I decided to ummm....borrow....the one that details the first week of coverage starting in January, and share it with you below....



Here's also a look at what you can look for on Opening Day, if you're one of the lucky 50 million people or so to get the network:

Hot Stove Live (6pm)- A Studio Show Dealing Extensively with Off-Season Trades, Free Agent Signings and Player Movement Rumors

All-Time Games (7pm)- 1956 World Series Game 5 Brooklyn Dodgers @ NY Yankees featuring Don Larsen's Perfect Game. Stay Tuned Following the Conclusion of the Game for a Sit-Down Interview with Batterymates Don Larsen and Yogi Berra

I posted this earlier but not sure if anyone saw it...I was surfing channels last night when I found the MLB Network already airing on Ch. 280 (Philly area Comcast subscriber)...They were showing a documentary of the 2005 World Series, looks like this will be a great channel once it fully launches next year.

I know it will be on Comcast, Cox, Direct TV and Verizon Fios. Besides that I'm not sure.

I'm still getting the 2005 World Series film all over again. On my Philly Comcast, it's on Channel 280.

I'm getting the same programing on my Comcast cable in the Philly area. However, I havnen't been able to get the MLB Net HD channel yet. But I'm sure if they don't have it now, they'll have soon.

Well, its clear that if you are a Comcast Cable costumer in the Philly area, you'll get the new MLB net on channel 280. Because I'm getting baseball programing on that channel.

I'm sure that Kevin and YanksFan12 were watcihng a promo loop to celebrate the Phils' World Series win this year.

I just tuned to channel 213, which will be its home on DirecTV, and got a "channel not available" message. Obviously, MLBN is still a few days away from the air.

Also: it will not be shown on Dish Network or AT&T U-verse, at least not at first.
