The New England Revolution and
Comcast SportsNet are happy to announce that the regional sports network will be
the team’s exclusive 2010 television partner in New
England. All Comcast SportsNet telecasts will be delivered in high
definition and begin on April 3 when the Revolution travel to face D.C. United
in Washington, D.C.
“We are very excited
to partner with Comcast SportsNet to bring the Revolution in high definition to
our fans across New England,” Revolution Chief
Operating Officer Brian Bilello said. “Having high-definition television
telecasts was one of our priorities this year, and Comcast SportsNet has been a
market leader in sports programming for many years. Comcast SportsNet is a true
regional player, reaching 4 million homes throughout New England, which allows
us to expand the geographic distribution of our matches to more fans. Comcast
SportsNet also has an impressive lineup of ancillary sports content. Taken
together, this is a tremendous partnership for both the Revolution and Comcast
SportsNet,” Bilello continued.
“The Revolution have
been competitive year after year in Major League Soccer, and we are excited to
bring them to Comcast SportsNet,” said Bill
Bridgen, Comcast SportsNet executive vice president and general
manager. “There is no shortage of soccer fans in the region and working with the
Revolution will allow us to reach new audiences and help expand the Revolution’s
broadcaster Brad Feldman returns for his 10th season with the

season as color analyst after retiring from the Revolution in December following
a stellar 11-year MLS career.
Productions will again produce every regionally-televised Revolution match. In
2010, Comcast SportsNet will broadcast 27 of the Revolution’s 30 matches,
beginning with the team’s April 3 match at D.C. United.
