Revs switch to Comcast SportsNet

Network will air 27 matches in HD; Heaps joins broadcast booth

The New England Revolution have announced they have
partnered with Comcast SportsNet New England as their broadcast partner for 2010,
and that the network will air 27 matches in high-definition this season.

For the past three seasons, the Revolution aired their matches
locally on TV38, an over-the-air station carried primarily by cable systems in
the greater Boston area and by satellite providers. While coverage thrived in
Massachusetts, Rhode Island (through a partnership with Cox Sports),
southeastern Vermont and southern New Hampshire because of the station's strong
local presence, other New England cities and towns located outside the Boston
designated market area (DMA) struggled to access the broadcasts through local cable

The search for a new television partner with a strong
tradition in HD programming and wider carriage across New England led the
Revolution to link up with Comcast SportsNet New England, which also broadcasts
Boston Celtics games. Two MLS teams -- D.C. United and San Jose -- already air
matches on Comcast SportsNet in their local markets, while the network also
regularly airs English Premier League and UEFA Champions League matches across
the country.

Although the destination for local Revolution television
broadcasts has changed, a few familiar faces are along for the ride. Long-time
play-by-play voice Brad Feldman will return for his 10th season in the
broadcast booth, while recently retired Revolution defender Jay Heaps will join
him as color analyst. In addition to the known quantities in the booth, Kraft
Sports Productions will continue to produce all matches aired on CSN-NE.
