TBS to launch broadband baseball channel on MLB.com
Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) will launch an interactive broadband channel in September designed to give Major League Baseball fans extended online coverage of the network’s MLB post-season coverage.
The channel, TBS Hot Corner, will offer unique live and on-demand streaming, and will be launched on MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball. The timing of the launch is in anticipation of TBS’ exclusive coverage of the Division Series and the National League Championship Series (NLCS).
The TBS Hot Corner broadband channel joins other Turner Sports new media properties, including NASCAR.com, PGATour.com, PGA.com and TNT OverTime on NBA.com.
In addition to on-demand daily news reports and live webcasts, the new broadband channel will also feature multiple streams of exclusive coverage from MLB match-ups carried on TBS, including a unique Dugout Cam that will give fans a birds-eye view inside both team dugouts during each game.
