What Is NESN?

NESN is an American regional sports network that serves as the official cable home of the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Bruins. The network is owned by Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the two teams, and is available in parts of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. NESN’s headquarters are located in Watertown, Massachusetts.

When Was NESN Launched?

NESN was initially launched in 1984 as a premium channel called the New England Sports Network. The channel was launched to broadcast games played by the then-new Hartford Whalers NHL team.

In 1991, NESN became an overflow feed of ESPN due to the latter’s broadcasting restrictions imposed by Major League Baseball at the time. These restrictions necessitated that ESPN broadcast Sunday night baseball games on a regional basis rather than nationally.

Basic Cable

In September 1995, NESN was converted into a basic cable channel but remained an affiliate of ESPN. In 2002, cable providers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island were allowed to pay a surcharge to have NESN available in their markets as part of expanded basic packages. While in 2004, the network negotiated with DirecTV to carry the channel nationally on one of its sports packages.

Where Can I Watch NESN?

NESN is available to approximately 4 million pay television households in the United States. The network is also available on various satellite and IPTV providers in Canada, Ireland, the Middle East, and South America.

NESN is one of the few regional sports networks available on satellite and cable providers in the United States. The network is also one of only a handful of regional sports networks that are not owned by a major media conglomerate such as Comcast or Fox.

NESN is available on most cable providers in New England and nationally on satellite and IPTV providers. The network is also available online at NESN.com, with live streams of all Red Sox and Bruins games.

Why I Enjoy NESN

I personally enjoy NESN because it connects me with the Boston Red Sox, and I can watch the games throughout the season. I also love learning about the history of the team and hearing stories from players and commentators. The network provides an excellent service to fans like me who want to stay updated on everything Red Sox.
