MASNMid-Atlantic Sport Network (MASN) announced Tuesday that it will launch a full-time HD channel in March of 2009 and will more than double the number of HD telecasts of Nationals and Orioles games.
Expanding on MASN's first season utilizing high definition technology, the network will air up to 200 Major League Baseball games in HD in 2009, giving sports fans an HD game every night of the season.  Additionally, the channel will carry Ravens preseason games, selected NCAA Division I football, basketball, and lacrosse games, and ESPN News in HD.
MASN's first season with high definition programming made available 40 Orioles games and 40 Nationals games in HD to 21 different cable and satellite providers throughout the seven state region.
"MASN will continue to bring fans maximum access to the Orioles and the Nationals by expanding our HD line up next season," said MASN spokesman Todd Webster.  "MASN's 2009 baseball schedule will give fans an HD game every night of the season, as we more than double the number of games in high definition.  The dedicated HD channel gives MASN the ability to provide other HD programming, including Ravens preseason football games, NCAA Division I football, basketball and lacrosse, as well as ESPN News."
Many of MASN's distributors will carry the full time HD channel, including Comcast, DirecTV, Cox, and RCN.
