The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) is a regional sports network owned by two Major League Baseball franchises - the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals - and televises every available game of both teams, live and in high definition. The network is available in a seven-state region, from Harrisburg, Pa., to Charlotte, N.C., on 25 cable and fiber optic providers, and is televised nationally via satellite provider DirecTV.
Since MASN launched a full-time, 24/7 schedule in July 2006, the network has televised hundreds of professional and NCAA Division I collegiate events annually.
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.

The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) is a registered trade name of TCR Sports Broadcasting Holding, LLP, a regional sports network. MASN serves a seven-state area, from Harrisburg, Pa., to Charlotte, N.C., including the entire states of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. MASN also serves major portions of North Carolina and Pennsylvania and parts of West Virginia.
Since at least 1981, the Orioles have had exclusive rights to the seven-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 their 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 MASN have offered fair and reasonable carriage terms to every cable and satellite distributor in the television territory. Currently you can find MASN on Antietam, Armstrong, Atlantic Broadband, AT&T TV, Bay Country, Citizens Telephone Cooperative, Spectrum/Charter, Chatmoss, Citynet, Co-Mo Connect, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV, Easton, Hardy, Kuhn, Mediacom, Nelson, Lumos / Ntelos, Randolph, Sky Best, Spruce Knob, Tri County, Verizon FiOS, and WOW!/Broadstripe.
