MLB Network launching Thursday, reaching 50 million homes

The new Major League Baseball Network is set to debut this Thursday with a Hot Stove program at 6pm and the first re-airing of Don Larsen’s 1956 World Series perfect game in its entirety at 7pm. The channel will be featured on over 50 million cable systems at its launch, making it the largest of all time.

The network has been picked up by many of the nation’s large cable companies, and thanks to MLB (via Neil Best) you can enter your zip code at MLBN’s website to check on its availability in your area.

Binghamton-area Time Warner subscribers, like me, can see the MLB Network in high definition on channel 807, which was formerly the Golf/Versus HD channel. DirecTV viewers in the “Southern Tier” can see the network on channel 213.
