Phillies have a TV deal

According to NBCUniversal and Comcast SportsNet, the network and the Phillies have completed the details for their television contract extension, which will keep the team on the air with them for at least the next two decades. The numbers weren't immediately available, although estimates are that the deal will be worth well more than $1 billion to the organization.

"We're pleased to confirm that NBCUniversal and Comcast SportsNet have signed a new long-term deal with the Philadelphia Phillies that will expand Comcast SportsNet's role as the Phillies' primary TV partner," Comcast SportsNet said in a release. "Although the terms of the comprehensive deal are confidential, details surrounding the 2014 schedule of games will be provided in the coming months."
