Bright House Sports Net To Launch In Central Florida Next Week

The Bright House Sports Network (BHSN), a new 24-hour RSN in Central Florida, will launch next Wednesday with a lineup including an emphasis on local sports and "live weekly telecasts of high school football," according to Buddy Collings of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. The net "combines programming geared for Bright House's nine-county Central Florida market" with Catch 47, the company's 24-hour RSN launched in Tampa in '05. Bright House VP/Public Affairs Sara Brady: "Content will be customized in each market, and there's also going to be a blend of programming you'll see in both." Bright House said that programming will include "coverage of college teams," including the Univ. of Central Florida and Univ. of South Florida, as well as "pro sports, fishing, auto racing, extreme sports, boxing and soccer." Bright House Tampa produces "The BaysBall Show," a weekly baseball show covering the Rays (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 9/11). In Orlando, Etan Horowitz reports BHSN, which is a digital channel, will "broadcast more than 75 live high school sports events a year and have its own studio shows" (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 9/10).
