COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON
The Houston Chronicle came out today with an article on Comcast SportsNet Houston and that fans locally are going to benefit from the hometown coverage.
Now I don’t doubt this as Comcast has partnered with the Rockets and Astros in helping to expand the brands of all involved.
Does local coverage include the soccer fan and the Dynamo fan in these scope of services? That is the question!
After announcing a sell-out this weekend and with a critical game of the season at BBVA Compass stadium the Dynamo coverage in the sports community was drowned out by the NFL Texans and college football.
Having called the Dynamo game on Local 2 NBC Sports this past weekend it certainly is advantageous when the Dynamo games are easy to find and in a good time slot. That remains the challenge and with the the extensive schedule of the Astros and Rockets one wonders if their is room for the Dynamo?
What is intriguing is that this is a soccer town that has yet to realize it’s potential for fan interaction at games live and in the media. That large ceiling is what is exciting and potentially appealing for Comcast.
Are they are interested in unique viewers that could ultimately be loyal to other programming and making a commitment towards them?
As for the Dynamo, they will also need a partnership that continues to help spread the word about their sport and their brand!
Much of the talk in today’s Chronicle piece is that Comcast will be inherently Houston when it comes to sports. Lets hope inherently Houston includes futbol, soccer, the Dynamo and all the amazing stories in this sport that go uncovered in Houston. Or that another network locally will wrap their arms around the Dynamo and providing real coverage of this sport and team!!!!
