UPDATE: MLB Network has now launched on Jan. 1, 2009. Fans can consult the channel locator on MLBNetwork.com to see where it is available in their zip code.
NOTE: We highly advise that those that do not already have MLB Network through their carrier, visit this article on The Biz of Baseball which goes over some of finer details regarding level of access needed for MLB Network.
Below is a list of cable and satellite operators from 2007.
Please note that this list has most likely changed. Also note that while a key carrier may be listed, a local or regional affiliated carrier, may not. For example, Comcast has many carriers throughout the U.S., as does Bright House.
As of 12/25/08, we are working with MLB Network to get an updated listing that will more accurately reflect who is, and who is not carrying MLB Network in Jan. 1, 2009.
To repeat, this listing, the most wide reaching that has yet been published, is from May of 2007 and may have changed since then.
