Detroit Pistons Partner With Comcast, Expand Video Distribution



AUBURN HILLS — Palace Sports and the Detroit Pistons are partnering with Comcast to provide multimedia non-game content on its local channel.

“From Comcast’s perspective, a broadcast partnership with the Palace and the Detroit Pistons is long overdue,” says Bill Harder, senior manager of local programming for Comcast in Michigan.

Beginning Saturday, Comcast XFINITY subscribers can hear “The Courtside Show” with Pistons radio play-by-play announcers Mark Champion and Rick Mahorn broadcast live on CN900. This show will be aired from 11 a.m. to noon every Saturday.

Comcast will also host several of Pistons video content on XFINITY’s Get Local Video-on-Demand platform. This content will include player profile features, behind-the-scenes footage, trending news, and Pistons’ outreach efforts in the community.
