MASN to deliver more than 300 live Major League Baseball games and more than 600 pre- and post-game shows for Orioles and Nationals, reaching 7 states and 20 million digital viewers on multiple platforms in 14 Nielsen media markets
MASN to bring more than 140 ACC events to its viewers, including football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and ACC Olympic sports teams; ACC content also to be featured on the MASN app and website
MASN has announced plans to launch its owned and operated dedicated sport media app, creating an innovative digital experience that will provide viewers enhanced access to coverage across all available platforms. For the first time ever, fans throughout MASN’s seven-state broadcast territory will have the opportunity to live stream the network’s entire programming lineup - including all Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals games - by using the new MASN app and authenticating via TV provider log-in.
Winner of more than 65 Emmy and Addy Awards and leading the nation’s regional network industry in producing and distributing live sports and shows for its 15th consecutive season, MASN will again broadcast live every available Orioles and Nationals game - more than 300 total games - along with more than 600 of the award-winning O’s Xtra and Nats Xtra pre- and post-game shows.
“MASN will continue, as we have for the last 15 years, to broadcast more than 300 baseball games and 600 30-minute pre- and post-game shows,” said John McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Marketing and General Sales Manager of the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network. “The network’s investment in live streaming expands our ability to deliver premium content and provide deeper engagement opportunities for fans and marketers alike.”
Through the new app, which is expected to launch by Opening Day, viewers will have access to real-time player statistics, live scoring updates, and insider analysis from the MASNsports.com team. The MASN app will be expanded to feature unique video and editorial content, live odds and gaming analysis.
Streaming will be available within MASN’s seven-state telecast territory without any additional costs to authenticated subscribers who already have MASN in their channel lineup from participating cable or satellite providers. To find the authenticated TV service provider in your area, viewers should visit MASNsports.com.
Viewers will be able to live stream the MASN app via desktop, mobile (iOS and Android), and Roku. The MASN app will be available for download in the iTunes and Google Play App Stores.
MASN’s multicast on cable, satellite, telecom, and digital services features a team of returning veterans and rising stars providing play-by-play, color, analysis, fan forum, commentary, and contributing content: Bob Carpenter, F.P. Santangelo, Kevin Brown, Scott Garceau, Jim Palmer, Ben McDonald, Roch Kubatko, Mark Zuckerman, Paul Mancano, and other personalities.
Last fall, MASN announced a partnership to bring more than 140 Atlantic Coast Conference events to its viewers, including football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and ACC Olympic sports teams. ACC content will also be featured on the MASN app and website.
