Comcast Northwest Expands Distribution

Comcast SportsNet Northwest inked distribution agreements with two additional television providers, Country Cablevision, serving the Salem region, and Monroe Telephone, continuing the network’s growth before the start of the 2008-2009 NBA season.

Today’s announcement comes less than two weeks after Comcast SportsNet launched on Canby Telcom in Oregon and expanded into the Seattle region on Comcast Cable and Verizon FiOS. In total, seven providers serving more than 200 communities in Oregon and Washington carry Comcast SportsNet. Comcast SportsNet is available to every cable and satellite provider serving the Northwest.

Comcast SportsNet will launch on Country Cablevision channel 9 and Monroe Telephone channel 153 before the Portland Trail Blazers’ first game of the season on Comcast SportsNet on November 1.
