Comcast Offers FSN Florida Preview


Comcast subscribers in the western part of the “Sunshine State” will get a sneak preview of regional sports network FSN Florida starting July 11 as a prelude to a full-scale rollout at month’s end.

Through a multiyear affiliation agreement, terms of which were not disclosed, Comcast preferred basic customers in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties will get the sneak preview, beginning Tuesday, before the RSN becomes a fixture on channel 72 July 31.

FSN Florida -- which offers Atlantic Coast Conference athletics, Tampa Bay Lightning National Hockey League games and Florida Marlins Major League Baseball contests, among other programming -- will also roll out in the Tallahassee area on channel 50 on that date.

Comcast passes more than 500,000 homes in those markets.
