With Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable as teammates, the New York Mets will be playing ball with their own regional sports network come spring 2006.

In June, the Mets exercised an option under the team’s 1996 rights agreement and paid MSGN $54 million to terminate the deal -- which had been slated to expire in 2011 -- after the 2005 season. Currently, MSGN and FSNY split 100 Mets games, with 50 others appearing on WPIX-TV.

The new RSN -- which will be carried on Comcast’s and Time Warner’s expanded-basic tiers -- will offer up to 125 regular-season Mets games, exhibition contests and other shoulder programming around the ball club.

The RSN is expected to present all Mets home games and select away contests in HD, as well as offering video-on-demand content. The parties said the new network would also seek other professional and amateur sports events.
