MLB reaches deals

 

Major League Baseball, Fox and Turner announced new TV contracts on Tuesday that will keep the World Series and League Championship Series on those networks through 2021. The deals, which take effect in 2014, join a recently announced extension with ESPN that will bring MLB a total of $12.4 billion for the eight-year period – more than doubling its existing set of television contracts. Fox will continue to carry the World Series and All-Star Game, and Fox and Turner will continue to show one LCS each year. Fox will return to Division Series coverage, carrying two of the four, with Turner broadcasting the others. – Newsday
