MASN has a new multi-year deal with Comcast

Recommended Posts

No details on how long or how much.   Still, good for MASN to have some stability.   Also:

MLB viewership for the 2020 season was up dramatically across virtually every key demographic segment, with the most highly sought-after younger P18-34 (+53%), P18-49 (+31%) and P25-54 (+16%) demos leading the way. The growth RSNs are experiencing is impressive in their own right but when compared to overall broadcast television consumption, which is conversely down 24% year-over-year, the value of RSN’s is indisputable.”

How does this affect the app that is supposed to launch?

This affects nothing.  MASN has been carried on Comcast and that agreement would have eventually expired at some point that none of us were even aware of.  Now that agreement has been extended.  This is non-news.

When will they offer in-market streaming without a cable subscription? 

I'm guessing not.  Most of them don't, right?

Interesting! Indisputable value those RSN's hold huh. Wonder what the value of owning the rights/RSN to TWO markets and not just one is? Probably not much. Cry poor fans and Angelos, cry poor. Sell the team already and put a couple Billion (with a B) in your pocket Angelos, it's the least you can do. If we ignore the last 15 years.

#MASN-LIES (or doesn't tell the full story).   Orioles ratings down double digit percentage in 2020, and were the 2nd lowest viewership in all of baseball

    • As much as I hate losing, a 2021 season where we secure one last high draft slot and develop a number of guys into productive ML regulars would be fine with me. 2021 isn’t going to provide a playoff push, so winning isn’t the metric I care about. I care about player development, ML and MiL. And I want to replenish our system with presumably a decent number of our top prospects moving out of the minors. Losing 2-1 games actually is completely five with me. After this season, they’ll drive me mad again. Strange things, these rebuilds. 
    • 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.
