Postseason

With game time starts exceptionally early in some time zones, the fact that the games are on TBS, and some questions around interest, television ratings at the local level were a mixed bag for the first day of MLB postseason play.

The biggest ratings winner was really surprise, given the history made last night. The Reds-Phillies game that saw Roy Halladay toss the second no-hitter in postseason history landed big numbers in the two markets. Cincinnati pulled an18.0 overnight rating while Philadelphia garnered a shining 21.9 rating; still not the highest.

In the Dallas/Ft. Worth market where most were in school or at work, the Rangers-Rays game pulled a 5.9 rating. Shift east to the Tampa Bay market and the same game pulled a 9.6 rating.

For the night-cap, the Yankees-Twins drew a 13.2 in New York and a whopping 29.6 rating in Minneapolis/St. Paul, the ratings winner at the local level for Game 1s of the Division Series.

NESN Invades Florida Broadcast Market Through Bright House Networks Deal PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 30 September 2010 14:10

NESNThis isn't likely to make the Rays, Marlins and Lightening happy, but for Red Sox and Bruins fans in Florida, NESN is branching from a pure regional sports network into a nationals broadcast outlet.

Bright House Networks today launched NESN National on the Bright House Networks’ sports tier, Sports Pack, throughout the Tampa Bay and Central Florida (Orlando) areas. Sports Pack is available to more than 2 million Bright House Networks customers in these markets.

NESN National is the national television service of New England Sports Network, a sports television network owned by the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins. Bright House Networks is the second Multiple System Operator (MSO) to launch NESN National, which provides fans outside New England the best opportunity to follow the Red Sox, Bruins and all New England sports, particularly those who also watch Red Sox and Bruins games through MLB and NHL league packages.

“The inclusion of NESN National to Sports Pack, along with a number of other additions made to the sports tier, is yet another example of how Bright House Networks serves sports fans throughout our markets,” said Mike Robertson, President of Bright House Networks Tampa Bay Division. “The Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins are two of the best known brands in professional sports and our re-launching’ of Sports Pack demonstrates our commitment to continually improving our customer offerings. We are thrilled to be offering these sports additions to our customers. “

“The Bruins are getting ready to begin the regular season with a historic trip to Prague and NESN Daily continues to provide complete and compelling Patriots coverage with insight from Patriots Kevin Faulk and David Givens. This is a great time for Bright House Networks’ customers in Florida to begin receiving NESN National,” said Sean McGrail, NESN’s president and CEO. “We’re sure fans in Bright House Networks service areas will enjoy our regular pre and post-game Bruins shows and game replays as well as our extensive off-season Red Sox coverage.”

Throughout the year, Bright House Networks’ Sports Pack customers will be able to watch NESN’s Bruins and Red Sox pre and post-game shows, which are among the most comprehensive in regional sports television. WB Mason Bruins Face-Off Live, is a 30-minute pre-game show that features host Kathryn Tappen and former Bruins starts Mike Milbury, Barry Peterson and Gord Kluzak. The same team of experts also provide 30 minutes of post-game coverage on ACE Ticket Bruins Overtime LIVE. NESN’s Red Sox pre and post-game coverage similarly delivers expert game-day coverage before each and every Red Sox game with studio host Tom Caron and MLB Hall of Famers Dennis Eckersley, Jim Rice and Peter Gammons as analysts.

Additionally, NESN National also includes Bruins replays and classic games; NESN Daily, a live sports news and debate program; minor league baseball; college hockey and basketball; and many of the network’s Original NESN Entertainment (ONE) productions such as The Instigators, Pocket Money and After the Game.

NESN National can now be found on Bright House Networks channel 813 in the Tampa Bay market and channel 183 in Central Florida area (Orlando), Florida.

Live game telecasts of the Red Sox and Bruins, Red Sox replays or classic games, and certain other programs will not be available on NESN National due to league restrictions. When these programs are airing on NESN in New England, Bright House Networks customers will see other programming. Bright House Networks customers can receive virtually all of NESN’s Red Sox and Bruins game telecasts by subscribing to MLB Extra Innings and NHL Center Ice packages respectively.
