Kerry on Deal to keep MLB on Cable Television
Senator John Kerry made the following statement regarding the deal to keep Major League Baseball's "Extra Innings" package available on cable television.
"All we ever wanted was a victory for the fans and this outcome is a big step forward. Everyone kept talking and pressing until we had a deal that protects the rights of most fans to follow their hometown team. This isn't final, and there are some concerns about Echostar customers, but this certainly is some hard-won good news at the start of this Red Sox season. I still need to review the details, but I am very encouraged so far."
