What key mistakes are the Mid Atlantic Sports Network(MASN) making? Many local viewers still miss HTS.

    If they miss HTS, they can watch it on DirecTV. It’s called Comcast Sports Net Mid-Atlantic. They bought HTS several years ago and changed it’s branding to match the other Comcast Sports Nets.

    And what mistakes are MASN making? I don’t know. I guess you could argue they should take Time Warner’s offer of being put on the digital tier, but that would put them at a disadvantage to Fox Sports South and SportsSouth, which are both carried on the regular tier.

    Why should Braves fans get to see the Braves for 50 bucks a month but make Orioles fans pay more to see their team? We’re all in the same market. It’s just as much an Orioles market as it is a Braves market.

    Which is better DirecTV or Cable? We need MASN on our local Cable carrier and if Time Warner won’t put it on there we should all drop our Cable and get DirecTV. Does anyone know how the prices compare? Do any areas of our state carry MASN now? Thanks for the article and other info.
