[SOCCER ON THE AIR] D.C. United, one of two remaining MLS club without a local television deal, announced that Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic will be its regional network. Former D.C. United midfielder Santino Quaranta will serve as analyst for the network’s telecasts this season alongside veteran play-by-play announcer Dave Johnson, who has held this position since the team’s inaugural season in 1996.
 
Comcast SportsNet is currently scheduled to televise 14 matches this season, with the remainder to be announced at a later date. The network’s schedule will begin when D.C. United visits the Portland Timbers on May 3 and currently includes all but one subsequent league match through the Aug. 3 game at the Houston Dynamo, as well as the team’s Aug. 27 match at the LA Galaxy.
 
Comcast SportsNet will present pre- and post-game shows, D.C. United Central and D.C. United Postgame Live, surrounding select games, as well as other team-related programming.
 
All matches which are not televised locally or nationally, will be streamed live on dcunited.com/live. These livestreams are available only to those who live within a 75 mile radius of Washington, D.C.

The announcement leaves Chivas USA as the only MLS club currently without a local television deal.
