MLB Network to launch Jan. 1

It seemed inevitable that Major League Baseball was going to add it's own channel eventually. I'm surprised it took this long to get one, although they have learned what to do/what not to do by seeing the other Major sports own channels. The best idea they got was to broadcast the MLB network in as many homes as possible. Taking a cue from the NFL Network, which only broadcasts on satellite and like two cable system, MLB allowed the cable companies to buy part ownership in the network so they can show to 50 million homes (except mine). But a baseball network is easier to watch because their isn't a limited amount of games to show and people can watch it every night in the season for recaps of games. The MLB network will become more popular when the season starts and eventually be broadcasted on every cable system with the possibility of showing playoff games in the future.
