The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) is a regional sports network owned by two Major League Baseball franchises -- the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles -- and televises every available game of both teams, live and in high definition. The network is available in a seven-state region, from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Charlotte, North Carolina on 31 cable and fiber optic providers, and is televised nationally via satellite providers DirecTV and Dish Network.
Since MASN launched a full-time, 24/7 schedule in July 2006, the network has televised more than 400 professional and NCAA Division I collegiate events annually. MASN is the official cable network of George Mason Patriots Basketball, Big South basketball and football, and the BB&T Classic.
Because the network is locally owned, MASN is committed to providing the best coverage of local sports. The network televises games of local and regional collegiate programs that have not previously enjoyed regional television exposure.
MASN's Emmy award-winning coverage of the Orioles and Nationals provides maximum access to sports fans across the region. The network has been at the forefront of using in-game production enhancements including super slo-mo cameras and pitch-tracking technology to enrich the viewing experience.
MASN televises every play and every game in crystal clear high definition with pregame and postgame shows in HD before and after every game from state of the art on-location sets at Nationals Park and Oriole Park at Camden Yards. With an All-Star broadcasting team and 24/7 online coverage of the teams at MASNsports.com, MASN is the local leader in live sports entertainment.

Since at least 1981, the Orioles have had exclusive rights to the 7-state television territory. In 2004, Major League Baseball announced the relocation of the Montreal Expos to Washington, D.C. The Orioles objected to the relocation of the Expos to within 35 miles of Oriole Park in Baltimore. Among other things, the Expos/Nationals had no television territory within which to telecast its games. In today's world, no baseball franchise could viably exist without a television territory and television rights revenues. The Orioles, the Nationals and Major League Baseball all understood this reality.
The Orioles appreciated that a baseball team in the nation's capital needed to be on television and agreed to share its exclusive television territory with the Nationals. Major League Baseball and the Nationals agreed to grant to TCR (MASN) the exclusive rights to telecast all of the available Nationals games. Since MASN already had the rights to certain Orioles games in 2005 and all available Orioles games in 2007, MASN became the home of the Washington Nationals and continues to be home to Orioles telecasts.
MASN believes every fan in the region should be able to watch the Nationals and Orioles on MASN, which is why we have made fair offers to every cable and satellite distributor in the television territory.
