It's New Year's Day and the JSM Blog is still officially on holiday. However, it's still a big sports day, especially for college football. Not only that, but there's a new addition to the sports media lineup. If you get DirecTV like I do, channel 213 is now offering MLB TV. It will be interesting to see what kind of programming MLB TV offers out of the gate. The official "sign on" doesn't take place until tonight, but the guess is it will be like NFL Network with a mix of old highlights, studio shows and breaking news. As of right now, MLB TV is free and available without an additional fee, also like NFL Network (but unlike the NHL and Tennis channels, although for some reason the NHL channel is free today).

By the way, it's the NFL Network on 212, MLB TV on 213, the NHL Network on 215 and the Tennis Channel on 217, and that's not counting all the ESPN channels. Is this a great country or what?
