TBS to Pay $350 Million to Televise NLCS

    In a seven-year deal worth as much as $350 million, the company's TBS network on Tuesday won the rights to televise a league championship series, beginning next season — the first cable network to do so.
    During a conference call, Commissioner Bud Selig said it made sense to go with TBS since it already had the division series, the first round of the playoffs.
    The other league championship series — alternating between the American and National leagues each year — was still up for bidding. Fox made it clear it had no interest to do both. Meanwhile, other broadcast networks also showed no interest, preferring not to have to preempt their fall entertainment lineups. That left cable networks.
