Seattle • The Seattle Mariners and DIRECTV Sports Networks have announced partnership on a new regional sports network where the Mariners will be the majority stakeholder in the operation.

The deal was announced on Tuesday and will run through the conclusion of the 2030 baseball season. DIRECTV Sports Networks will take on a minority position with the venture, but will oversee the daily management of the network.

The Mariners said the new network will continue to operate under the ROOT Sports brand.

Mariners vice president of business operations Bob Aylward says the franchise is confident that it is maximizing the value of its television rights by becoming majority partner in the network. The channel will continue to show other pro, college and high school sports programing.
