An Update on Disney’s divested RSN’s
Major League Baseball won’t get a shot at controlling the nation’s regional sports TV networks, after all.
MLB has resigned itself to becoming a minority investor — as Disney wraps up its auction of the 21 so-called RSNs — giving up on a dream to become the operator of a nationwide chain of sports-focused TV channels, sources told The Post.
“MLB preferred majority but have come to the conclusion that it is not going to be possible and they want to be part of a consortium,” according to a source close to the talks.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred surprised media executives in November when he jumped into the auction. At the time, sources close to MLB said the league was angling to centralize the media rights of MLB’s various teams, boosting its ability to resell games to a fast-growing array of online streaming services.
