Muscatine Power and Water (MP&W) is a customer-driven, not-for-profit municipal utility, established by the community for the purpose of serving the community responsively, competitively, and responsibly. MP&W provides reliable electricity, high quality water, and state-of-the-art communications services, including Internet, TV, and phone services, to businesses and homes throughout the Muscatine community at rates below state and national averages with outstanding customer service. MP&W is locally controlled and operated for the benefit and betterment of the community.

MUSCATINE, Iowa–Muscatine Power and Water announced they have come to terms with the new Marquee Sports Network, the exclusive television home of the Chicago Cubs. The network, set to launch in late February, will act as the Chicago region’s exclusive network for fans to view live Cubs games plus extensive pre- and postgame coverage, bonus content, and more.

“Fans expressed concern at the end of last season when both Comcast and WGN announced they were doing their final broadcasts,” said Erika Cox, Director of Customer and Technology Experience. “Over the past few months, we have been working directly with the new network to make sure our local Cubs fans will have access to the game broadcasts and a lot more.”

In addition to live game broadcasts, which will continue to feature broadcasters Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies, Marquee Sports Network will feature extensive pregame and postgame coverage, unique Cubs content, and other local sports programming. Marquee represents a partnership between the Chicago Cubs and Sinclair Broadcast Group, a venture similar to regional team-specific networks in other major markets.

While MP&W continues to work out details, the new network will get inserted in the MachLink TV lineup near other national and regional sports networks. Fans should expect to see live Cubs action, increased access, and around-the-clock coverage of the team beginning with spring training games in late February.
