Mariners, FSN Northwest and Comcast reach high-def TV deal

All of the Seattle Mariners home games this season will be shown in
high-definition television on Comcast’sFSN Northwest HD channel. Two
seasons ago, Comcast broadcast some Mariners games in high
definition but last season, fans weren’t able to see the FSN games in
HD.

Comcast customers need to have a HDTV television and rent a special
HD digital cable set-top box from Comcast to watch the games in high
definition.
“We are fortunate to work with progressive teams such as the
Mariners and are proud to partner with them to meet the evolving needs
of our fans,” said Mark Shuken, FSN Northwest vice president and
general manager, in a statement.

The FSN Northwest games will be aired on Comcast’s channel 664.
