Mets Discuss RSN With Time Warner Cable, Comcast
Published October 8, 2004
Comcast has joined with Time Warner Cable “to discuss plans to launch a new” RSN with the Mets, according to Tim Arango of the N.Y. POST. Sources said that the new channel would begin airing Mets games in ’06 and is “tentatively being called the Mets Network.” The Mets, Time Warner and Comcast would each own one-third of the net. A source said that the RSN “may also seek the rights to carry [Devils] games.” Another option discussed was for the Mets to join the Yankees’ YES Network (N.Y. POST, 10/8).
