Blue Jays announce 4-year deal with TV partners



    TORONTO, March 22 /CNW/ - The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have agreed to four-year
contracts through the 2010 seasons with both ROGERS SPORTSNET and TSN.

    "This agreement provides the club with great exposure and allows our
dedicated fans to experience the excitement of Blue Jays baseball throughout
the summer on Sportsnet and TSN. That being said, we are still working to give
our fans even more. I hope to increase the number of games broadcast in 2007
and subsequent seasons to at least 145 games."
    
                                             President and CEO, PAUL GODFREY
    

    ROGERS SPORTSNET are currently set to broadcast 116 games in the upcoming
2007 season. Sportsnet will broadcast all of their home games in high
definition as well as a number of road games.
    TSN will broadcast at least 80 games in the four year partnership with 20
of those coming in the 2007 season. All TSN games will be broadcast in high
definition.
    As part of the new partnerships, both Sportsnet and TSN will each
broadcast a minimum of one spring training game each of the four years.
