Rogers wants to bring MLB Network to Canada

News for our Canuck friends:

Rogers Communications, which owns the Toronto Blue Jays and Sportsnet, wants to bring the MLB Network to Canada.

The cable giant is sponsoring the baseball channel’s application to the Canadian Radio-Television and Communications commission to be added to the list of non-Canadian television services authorized for distribution in this country.

The move is part of Rogers’ overall goal of increasing its offering of lucrative sports content across all platforms.

The application states that the MLB Network is “currently in discussions” with Rogers to “widely distribute” the channel in Canada.
