KHOU, Houston Dynamo Renew Extensive Broadcast Agreement for 2010 Season

21 regular season Dynamo games and additional content to air on KHOU 11.2

HOUSTON, TX - KHOU-TV and the Houston Dynamo have renewed their broadcast agreement for the 2010 season, it was announced today. KHOU will air all non-nationally televised Dynamo regular season games on its digital channel, KHOU 11.2, and feature Dynamo ancillary programming on Channel 11.2 throughout the season.

KHOU is currently scheduled to show 21 Dynamo regular season games on Channel 11.2 in 2010, beginning with the April 10 contest against the Los Angeles Galaxy. Dynamo Insider, a 30-minute show featuring top plays and on-set interviews, will again air once per month throughout the season, and KHOU 11.2 will also air replays of all 21 game broadcasts during the following week.

Like last year, the Dynamo will be featured in a five-minute segment on 11 News This Morning, Saturday mornings at 8:55 a.m. That means that for the second straight season, KHOU will air more than 100 hours of Dynamo-related content throughout its platforms.

All Dynamo game broadcasts will include 15-minute pre- and post-game shows, hosted by KHOU sports anchor Matt Musil.

The Houston Dynamo will open their 2010 season on March 27 with a road game against FC Dallas. The Dynamo home opener will be on Thursday, April 1, against defending MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake at 8 p.m.
