Comcast SportsNet West Inks DirecTV Deal


Comcast SportsNet West will be available to DirecTV Inc. residential customers in the Sacramento, Calif., DMA who subscribe to the “DirecTV Total Choice” programming package beginning Tuesday, the direct-broadcast satellite provider said last Friday.

The Comcast Corp.-owned regional sports network will be anchored by games from the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings and the Women’s NBA’s Sacramento Monarchs.

It will also feature extensive college-sports coverage, including Sacramento State University football; University of California-Davis football and basketball; and Fresno State football, as well as selected games from the Western Athletic Conference, Big Sky Conference and Mountain West Conference.
