MLB Network is launching a new channel tonight that will be much like the NFL's Red Zone channel. The official press release is below, via FangsBites [H/T SportsBusiness]:
MLB Network Strike Zone, a new channel that will take viewers on a high-speed trip around Major League Baseball on Tuesday and Friday nights during the regular season. When live game telecasts air on MLB Network, MLB Network Strike Zone will bring fans to every game across the league, with up-to-the-minute highlights, live look-ins and updates, all commercial-free.
MLB Network Strike Zone will launch on Bright House Networks, DIRECTV, DISH Network and Time Warner Cable today, April 10 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
“MLB Network Strike Zone will provide baseball fans with the award-winning coverage of all 30 clubs they’ve come to rely on from MLB Network,” said Tony Petitti, President and CEO of MLB Network. “We’re excited to continue to expand the reach and scope of MLB Network’s programming.”
