Best Coverage in Baseball

On September 26, 2007 an article on ESPN.com reports that SNY has the best Baseball Broadcast Team in Major League Baseball. This team includes Play by Play announcer Gary Cohen, and color commentary announcers Keith Hernandez, and Ron Darling.[2]


Controversy

The network had been expected to have problems being carried by cable systems owned by Cablevision, as Mets games were moved to the network from FSN New York and the MSG Network, both of which are owned by Cablevision, similar to the situation that the Yankees and Cablevision had with the launch of the YES Network. Cablevision sued on the grounds that the Mets might have violated their contract, under which Cablevision theoretically had a year left on the deal, as well as last-refusal rights. However, a Judge ruled in favor of SportsNet New York, essentially holding the Mets had voided their deal with Cablevision entirely by paying a specified buyout fee, believed to exceed $50 million.[3] For other uses, see Cablevision (disambiguation). ... FSN New York (often abbreviated as FSNY, or more appropriately, FSNNY), previously known as Fox Sports Net New York (or Fox Sports New York) and SportsChannel New York, is a regional sports network in the New York City metropolitan area, whose reach expands to cover the entire state of New... The Madison Square Garden Network, now shortened to simply MSG, is a regional cable television and radio network serving the New York City area. ... The Yankees Entertainment and Sports (YES) Network is a New York City regional cable TV channel dedicated to broadcasting baseball games of the New York Yankees, and basketball games of the New Jersey Nets. ...


Comcast, along with Cox Communications systems in central and eastern Connecticut as of 2008, continue to refuse to carry the network in any tier of service. No reason has been given for this exclusion.


Notes

  • Mets games on SNY and post-games delay other programming, such as the 10:00 SportsNite, and preempt all or parts of shows at midnight when a 7:00 game runs long.
  • There is no 10:00 SportsNite when the Mets play a game on SNY starting at 8:00 or later.
  • Mets games on WPIX (and simulcast on other stations) are produced by SNY.
  • All times given in Eastern Time Zone, as SportsNet New York is based in New York City.
  • As of the start of the 2007 Mets season, SNY debuted a new set of graphics for both their Mets telecasts and SportsNite telecasts. These graphics include a new scoreboard which goes along the entire top portion of the screen as well as a new sports ticker on the bottom portion of the screen. The ticker now provides more stats including wins, losses, and saves, much like the ESPN Bottom Line ticker. SNY features a "SNY HD" logo in the scoreboard for games that are available in high-definition on both the HD and SD feeds. Games shown on WPIX replace the SNY logo with the CW11 logo.
  • None of the programming on SNY is closed-captioned for the hearing impaired. The FCC gives new stations three years before they are required to begin captioning.
