MLB Network Debuts in 2009


Just like the NFL has done by creating their own cable TV network, MLB will debut the MLB Network on January 1, 2009. Read about it here: Sessa, Danielle. “MLB Network will broadcast 26 games when it debuts in 2009.” 2007-05-17, Bloomberg News.. Suffice it to say this is a dream come true for baseball junkies like me. I wouldn’t be surprised if the MLBnetwork becomes accessible online within five years time, or if the distinction between MLB.tv and the MLB Network becomes very fuzzy within that same time span.

Discussion Question:
1.) What are your predictions on how the future of MLB Network will pan out? Will MLB Network fail quickly, will MLB Network & the online MLB.tv entities share content, or will MLB Network & MLB.tv actually converge into a single entity in the not-too distant future?
