Baltimore to get TV channel showcasing city’s real estate

A streaming network announced Wednesday that it is branching into Baltimore by launching a 24-hour channel dedicated to the city’s real estate scene.

Abagale TV Network, an official American Basketball Association streaming network, will soon stream the Baltimore Real Estate Channel, featuring new and resale homes on sale across the city, along with products and services for homebuyers and sellers.

Other videos will spotlight Baltimore’s schools, shopping, recreation, community events and community organizations, the network said in a statement.

Doug Bassett, the owner and operator of Maryland Home Inspectors and the new real estate channel, said it plans to launch by the end of January. Real estate professionals came up with the idea to create local streaming channels that target specific cities, Bassett said. Baltimore is one of 20 cities that will soon have its own real estate channel with locally made videos. Charleston, South Carolina, and Indianapolis are two of the first channels aired on Abagale.

“The whole idea was to have it so people throughout the world could see different communities that they wanted to move into,” Bassett said. “Our goal is not just to have real estate sales or houses for sale on it but also information about the community, what makes the community great and then community services and recreations and fun things to do in the community.”

He estimated the channel’s shows, also available on Roku, will reach more than 65 million homes. He hopes local governments, businesses and community organizations will create advertising videos to broadcast on the channel.

Beyond streaming the Baltimore Hawks ABA team, Abagale TV Network also has channels for restaurants, entertainment, law, casinos and music.
