Major League Baseball’s new cable network, the MLB Network, is unveiling its new logo, the first element of the network’s existence. “This identity is consistent with the timeless Major League Baseball logos,” says Tony Petitti, president and CEO of the MLB Network. The new logo will appear on MLB Network advertising and promotional materials, on the set of MLB Network studio programs, and in conjunction with everything related to the new network. The network launches on Jan. 1. MLB projects it to be available in approximately 50 million cable and satellite homes at launch.
What a joke.
They black out local channels, paid MLB extra Inning channels, paid mlb.com subscriptions. Now they want to launch their own Channel.
Mlb is so greedy.
When is baseball going to stop being so greedy? We pay over $200 for the MLB package, games are blacked out, we get no high definition games on cable. Unbelievable how MLB has no problem paying players $20 million a year but piss on the fans who pay all the money who fund everything.
We live 6 hours from Miami where the Marlins play, yet all games are blacked out on any regular local channel as well as the $200 mlb package we pay so we can actually watch Mets games when they play the Marlins but still get blacked out.
This year we will not buy the package and not spend any money on any merchandise or tickets. Nothing.
The economy is bad yet baseball apparently thinks they are above and beyond being touched by the downturn. They have no problem blacking out fans and charging outragious prices for everything and then putting out their hand for tax payers to build them new stadiums. If we can't see what we pay for then why even bother.
