The Houston Dynamo and English-language television partner FOX Sports Houston have renewed their broadcast agreement for the 2012 season, it was announced today.

As part of this partnership, FOX Sports Houston and FOX Sports Houston Plus will broadcast a total of 16 Dynamo regular-season games starting on Saturday, March 17.  Seven games are slated to air on FOX Sports Houston and nine on FOX Sports Houston Plus.

“This agreement with Fox Sports Houston, coupled with our overall television package, creates the strongest broadcast situation in club history,” said Dynamo president

Chris Canetti. “I'm pleased to be partnering with Houston's leading regional sports network in what will be the most exciting season of Dynamo soccer. Most importantly, our fans will have incredible access to view matches.”

Fox Sports Houston (Comcast channel 37, DirectTV 678, Uverse 1755) has been a television partner of the Dynamo since their inaugural season in 2006. All game broadcasts will be available in high-definition.
