  • Mets Set To Launch New Network On March 16

    The New York Mets new cable network SportsNet New York (SNY) announced Monday the channel will officially launch March 16 when the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves play a spring training game in Port St. Lucie. SNY reports the cable channel will air 11 spring-training Mets games between March 16 and April 2.

    SportsNet New York (SNY) will feature New York regional sports and entertainment, including 125 regular season New York Mets telecasts. SNY also plans to broadcast live sports and local news coverage to the Tri-State area through three nightly “SportsNite” shows and a daily “SportsRise” show. SNY will be available to viewers in New York, Connecticut, most of New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania. In addition to Mets games, SNY is also the official year-round television home of the New York Jets, providing viewers the most exclusive coverage and access to the Jets organization and its players. SNY will also televise other professional and collegiate sports, including basketball and football games from the Big East and Big Ten conferences, as well as classic sports and event programming. SNY will also feature exclusive interview and magazine programs.

    It would be great if they would broadcast some minor league games, so we could get a glimpse at the future.

          I believe comcast has part ownership of the station so they'll be carrying too.

            Last night, we had on Newsday’s Neil Best who is now penning the “Sports Watch” column which focuses on sports media and sports business. He also covered the football Giants for 10 years, and recently wrote a big article on Team Message Boards likes ours here.

            SNY was the very first topic of discussion.

            Here is the link:

            The interview runs for exactly 40 commercial-free minutes. I hope you find it informative.

            Here are some of the topics that we covered in the interview (listed in the order in which they were discussed and with some expounding wherever possible):

            --The new Mets Network Sportsnet New York (SNY)
            --launching 3/16
            --no agreements yet in place with Dish Network, DirecTV or
            Cablevision, but they are “talking”
            --confident that they’ll make Opening Day 4/3, since the
            market is already set with YES.

            --Sports applying upward pressure to cable bills.
            --The Thurs/Sat NFL package will really force the issue
            --Distributors don’t like ala carte channel arrangement

            --The new SNY Mets analysts (Cohen, Hernandez and Darling)

            --The Jets’ relationship with SNY

            --Neil’s take on NFL coaches not allowing assistants to speak to
            the media

            --Movement on the new stadiums (stadia?) in the Bronx and
            Flushing.


            --The Super Bowl/Playoffs matchups and ratings

            --ESPN Radio’s weak signal

            --Tiki Barber’s “outcoached” comments

            --Neil’s memories of Wellington Mara (as well as Mr. Tisch)

            --Sports Message Boards
            --including Neil saying that “It is a fact that beat writers
            look there every single day.”


            --Roy Simmons

            --The snacks on “Mike’d Up”

            --Sid Rosenberg

            --The final game of the ESPN Sunday Night football crew and the
            new pairing for MNF

            --The Islanders

            --Eli Manning, including the press coverage of him, Ben
            Roethlisberger, Terry Bradshaw and the Mannings, Ron Dayne over
            Shaun Alexander

            --Differences between covering media people vs. covering athletes

            --James Carville getting a Sports Talk show on XM

              For those who are interested.......

              I just received a notice from Time Warner Cable stating that SportsNet NY (the new METS network) will launch on March 1 on Channel 26.

              TWC is moving FSNY to Channel 79, effective the same date.

                According to Phil Mushnik's column in the Friday New York Post.
                "The Mets' new SportsNet NY, say sources, has reached an agreement with DirecTV "

                "There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit.

                    HD, I just hope every cable company carries SNY, so far there is no agreement with Cablevision, Direct tv, Dish net and alot of small cable companies. The only ones assured of seeing SNY is Time Warner and Comcast customers because they are partners in SNY.

                        My apologies. It seems Cablevision is close to a deal with the Mets to carry it. This is a pleasant surprise

                          Does anyone know if they've been able to work out a deal yet with Directv?
