TV FOR NATIONALS

The Baltimore Orioles and Major League Baseball reached agreement on a deal that will allow games involving the new Washington Nationals to be televised.

The Orioles and Nationals will form a joint venture, backed by MLB, to allow fans in the Baltimore-Washington market to watch both teams.

The Nationals relocated from Montreal in the offseason and are owned by MLB's other 29 teams.

Over the past decade, Montreal struggled to set up a TV network. The Expos did not have a television contract in 2003, and last year showed only about one-fifth of their games on English language TV.
