MASN on Dish? Maybe...
Today's story about the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network's broadcast schedule for Nationals and Orioles spring-training games may be annoying reading for sports fans who get their TV from the MASN-deprived Dish Network.
(Disclosure: As a Nats fan, a Georgetown grad and a Dish customer -- well, it's still cheaper than my alternatives -- I'm one of those annoyed sports fans.)
So I asked Dish PR if the company planned to join competing TV providers and add MASN to its lineup.
Spokesman Kevin Hubbard called back to say that Dish is, in fact, negotiating with MASN over carriage rights and wanted to make a deal happen, but had not yet. "They have been in discussion with them, they're just trying to find a happy middle ground," he said. "The guys here definitely signaled that it's a pretty hot topic."
Sounds like this might be an opportune time for baseball-starved Dish customers to remind the company of their views...
