Sounders TV deal

The Sounders announced this past week a multi year contract with KING/KONG to televise all matches that are not nationally broadcast. Thankfully, both stations broadcast in HD, so the capability is there to deliver the games in HD. I suspect most games will be on KONG, as the broadcast networks do not carry much sports programming anymore. As I’m not the only one who thought the team would end up on an RSN, one may wonder how much attention FSNW will give the club, now that their matches will not even appear on the network. With the loss of the Sonics, FSNW may not have much choice but to cover the Sounders, given that they’re now one of three major pro level teams in the area. Next up for the Sounders will be announcing their radio partner.
