The Mets network will replace the club's existing agreement with Cablevision, in which games were broadcast on FOX Sports Net New York and MSG. The Mets executed a $54 million buyout to escape their contract with Cablevision last year.
The new network will carry up to 125 regular season games, with all home games and selected road games broadcast in HDTV. Additionally, the network will feature a selection of spring training contests and Mets-related news and feature programming.
The Mets could woo other area clubs to broadcast on the network, much like the Yankees reached an agreement with the NBA's New Jersey Nets to share time on the YES Network. The NHL's New Jersey Devils and NFL's New York Jets have been mentioned as possible partners with the Mets.
