MLB Network now available in Canada

The MLB Network is now available in Canada as Rogers Communications extended its partnership with Major League Baseball on Wednesday, agreeing to an eight-year multiplatform broadcast rights extension with MLB, MLB Advanced Media and Sportsnet through 2021.

Wednesday marked the first day MLB Network was available in Canada. The 24-hour network dedicated to MLB features live games, news, highlights and some of the game’s top analysts.

MLB Network will be available to Rogers digital TV customers in Ontario on channel 415, and it’s available for a free preview through the end of April.

Brisbee: The Phillies’ new TV deal and the Raysification of the Atlanta Braves

You can call them Rays or you can call them A’s, but don’t call them helpless. If there’s a team that should instill confidence in their fans, the Braves are up there. Baseball players are cheap for the first six years of their big-league lives; find the good young players and you don’t need money. The Braves are adept at finding the good young players. They have been for a couple decades.

But the money from the Phillies deal shows just how far behind the Braves are in television revenue. Imagine if the Braves had that money. Imagine if, in addition to their current roster, they could waltz into the free-agent Stuckey’s and come home with a Robinson Cano. They would be monsters.

Instead, they’re just really, really good. And smart. They’ll have to stay that way, too, because they aren’t getting rich.
