Guess who got a new sponsor: we did! Comcast will sponsor Purple Row and SB Nation Baseball this upcoming season. I don't live in a Comcast area so I can't speak much about the company, but here's some info that was provided to me:
We’re grateful for their support and are pleased as punch that they recognize the value, passion and strength of our community enough to want to align their company with all of you. That’s a huge win not just for our site but for all of us out here in the blogosphere who’ve known for some time where the best and most authentic sports discussion can be found. Of course, being a savvy company Comcast wouldn’t be here if they weren’t trying to tell us that they’re the best place to get all of the baseball programming that we need to spark those discussions, and they’re even extending a pretty nice offer to help convince us (more below). Now, I’ll let you all decide on all of that for yourselves, but hope you’ll at least consider their offer -- not just because it’s a great offer, but because they’re a company that understands and supports fans like us.
Here’s the pitch:
- If you are a current Comcast customer they are offering you this sweet deal:
Digital Preferred TV with MLB Network for only $9.99 a month for the first six months
- If you are not yet a Comcast customer the deal is even better:
You can switch from Dish Network or AT&T and get MLB Extra Innings for the low, low price of FREE!!! And we all know how good FREE is!
Only Comcast brings you MLB Extra Innings and their great coverage of MLB Network. Dish Network and AT&T U-Verse can’t say that!!!
To take part in this offer, pick up your phone and dial 1-800-COMCAST.
Thanks again to Comcast for their support -- Play Ball!
Comcast is an SB Nation partner and sponsor of the SB Nation baseball communities.
