Cox, MASN Strike Deal

Mid-Atlantic Sports Network’s telecasts of Washington Nationals Major League Baseball games will be available to nearly 260,000 Cox Communications Inc. subscribers in Fairfax County and Fredericksburg, Va., following a carriage deal between the regional sports network and the cable operator.

Cox will carry MASN on its expanded-basic tier beginning April 1.

MASN said it now has contractual commitments to be carried in more than 2 million households throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

The network added that it will air 154 Nationals regular-season games this year.
