Comcast and several cable providers including AT&T and DirecTV never agreed to carriage rights for the network, leaving the majority of Houston homes unable to watch Astros and Rockets games on television since 2012.
Judge Marvin Isgur approved the plan, which was supported by both the Rockets and Astros, on Thursday. The new network should launch next month.
The Astros issued a statement applauding the ruling and saying: "Throughout this long process, our main goal has been to provide broad coverage of Astros games for our fans throughout our region. This new network will allow us to achieve this goal."
