MASN now streaming.

Yea, like if Mancini started the game with 22 homers, then hits another in the 4th inning, the app will show he has 23.

Well, now we know why Jim Hunter became redundant.

I found this quote interesting.

“MASN will continue, as we have for the last 15 years, to broadcast more than 300 baseball games and 600 30-minute pre- and post-game shows,” said John McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Marketing and General Sales Manager of the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network. 

I guess that could mean two 15 minute shows but that's not how it reads to me...?

Truthfully, how long does it say - "Welp, another L!".

Would be nice if MASN would get on Sling, which is the cheapest of the various options. I have Sling  pretty much exclusively to watch Maryland basketball. The Giants and Athletics games are available on Sling in-market.

Here is a list of all team's RSN streaming platform options - https://www.groundedreason.com/how-to-watch-mlb-games-without-cable/ 

That option would of course be second to just letting us pay them directly. This is all very dumb, hopefully it gets sorted out soon, but it should have happened 5+ years ago.

I am sorry.

The whole streaming or cable/satellite conversation just goes around in circles to me. Channels are still bundled. 

I pay over $150 for DirecTV.  Upgraded internet to a broadband provider and that is $75 a month. Watch Amazon Prime, MLBTV but that is it.  I would probably have to spend another $75 for the best internet to have confidence in it where I live. The upstairs TV can be real choppy trying to stream.  

You sound like me.... Hate the price tag for both, but no other viable options

I cut the cord a few years ago when the team went into re-building mode. I use the MLB app for instant video highlights and Orioles game updates and that keeps me in the loop without the time investment or the cable bill. I can get the Ravens on over-the-air antenna so that keeps my sports entertainment costs way down.

I love a good MASN pile on but outside of Gary Thorne I can't bring myself to get mad at any of the recent decisions. The streaming ordeal is not any different than the vast majority of other teams' options. Most of them require a cable subscription and aren't offered on Youtube TV, Hulu Tv and Sling. This also isn't really much different than Fox sports go, BTN, ESPN etc. where you still have to pay for a subscription package of some sort. As far as i know, none of these sports streaming services act as a Netflix/HBO model where you just pay a monthly fee for that content and that content alone. I pay for Hulu Tv to be able to watch live sports on all of those apps mentioned above. Even if you purchase ESPN + as a standalone service you don't get access to games not exclusively aired on ESPN+. Meaning you still require a subscription package to watch, say, the NCAA playoff games. 

I do wonder if this is out of the Orioles hands in terms of what they are able to offer their fans regarding streaming. Doesn't change the fact that they were still late to offer mobile streaming at all and their programming was badly produced and very boring compared to other networks. Others may disagree, but i'd rather watch paint dry than watch Dave Johnson and Tom Davis on Wall to Wall Baseball. They have an opportunity with this app to have a more modern fan experience and it seems like they are sort of touting that. The devil is in the details though so we'll see.

Has anyone seen any updates about when the MASN app will be available? Or what streaming services will be carrying MASN this season?

I can’t find any updates outside of the Jan 25, 2021 press release.

Nope, not a thing! Looks like they are going to miss their target of opening day. Unless they release it at 2:10pm tomorrow which strikes me as something they would do.

AT&T TV is the only streaming service to carry them, and likely will be the only one at least this year.   Same boat for most of the other MLB RSNs this year.  It's on their $85 no-contract streaming package.   https://www.att.com/tv/

Go through Rakuten and get $112.50 back on your first month. Money maker.

    • I can’t be the only one who saw a list like this and could hear Bordick reading off each of these numbers in succession despite them being shown on the screen. Mike Bordick, eternal friend of the visually impaired. 
    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
