STATE OF THE UNION: In Philadelphia, Kerith Gabriel cites a source as saying that the MLS Philadelphia Union and Comcast are "ironing out a deal" to have Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia "potentially air 18 of 34 league matches." In addition, CSN Philly "will air a weekly soccer show, with the host to be announced." The show "tentatively will be called 'State of the Union,' which was once the name of CSN's Union blog." The Union already have a "long-term deal" with WPVI-ABC, but the source said that the "collaboration with Comcast will eliminate coverage" on WPVI's digital cable channel, the LiveWell Network. The source added that "'programming details and minor scheduling conflicts' are the only issues holding up announcements on both sides" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 3/10).
