The magic number for Atlanta Braves fans to quench their appetite is 755, as BravesVision debuts its second season for Comcast Cable subscribers at 4 p.m. E.T. on Friday, April 1, 2005, with telecast of First Pitch - Braves Preseason Special. The channel will offer a feast of behind-the-scenes features and on-the-field game action of the Atlanta Braves throughout the season. Also planned are simulcasts of Clear Channel Radio's pre and post-game coverage (640AM WGST - Braves Radio 640GST; and 96.1FM WKLS - 96Rock in the Atlanta area).

Programming elements for the upcoming season include: more than 60 live home games televised in high-definition from TBS and Turner South; classic Atlanta Braves games; team batting practice coverage; and repurposed features from Turner Field's new HD board. BravesVision will also have up to 10 Braves minor league games, repurposed on a delay basis following their telecast on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS), featuring Richmond (Triple-A), Pearl (Double-A), Rome and Myrtle Beach (both A ball).

"BravesVision gives our fans all-access, delivering extensive coverage of both game action and up-close features with players and coaches," said Derek Schiller, senior vice president of sales/marketing for the Braves. "Our goal is to satisfy the hardcore fan's appetite for the Braves, as well as extending the brand to the casual baseball viewer."

"With BravesVision, Comcast takes Braves fans where they have never been before, from pre-game activities at Turner Field to live press conferences and profiles of their favorite players, both past and present," said Bill Connors, senior vice president for the Comcast Atlanta Region. "And for our high-definition customers, it will be like bringing part of the new Turner Field HD scoreboard right into your living room. This is programming exclusive to Comcast Atlanta and we're excited to be entering our second year as the Broadband Home of the Braves."
