Chicago Sky Seals Cable TV Deal with Comcast

Chicago WNBA fans that have Comcast cable will be very happy campers, as almost all of the Sky's 2010 games will be broadcast on channel CN 100:

From the press release:

The Sky and CN100 have reached a groundbreaking agreement in which CN100 will carry 28 out of 34 Chicago Sky basketball games, including 15 Sky home games at Allstate Arena and 13 road games. Plus, the Sky will provide unique content, including extensive game-highlight videos and feature stories that will be available to Comcast customers via On Demand.

"Our fans deserve the best," said Margaret Stender, President and CEO of the Chicago Sky. "To that end, we are thrilled to be aligning with Comcast the market leader, and together providing comprehensive coverage of world class WNBA action and athleticism. It is a great growth statement for our fans and our franchise."

Add the two ESPN2 games and that's 30 out of 34 games televised this year - an increase of 600 percent over the previous year. Hey, maybe the Dream can swing a deal like that with Comcast Atlanta.....
