CSN Houston/Dynamo FAQ for Fans

Q: Why did the Dynamo choose to move the games to CSN? Especially since CSN does not have distribution on DIRECTV, DISH, AT&T UVerse, and Time Warner Cable?
A: CSN believes in the Dynamo and shares the passion and commitment for growing the game of soccer. Fans will see high-quality, HD match production and an array of in-depth programming. This is by far the most comprehensive TV partnership of any MLS team.

Q: What kind of Dynamo coverage will be seen on CSN?
A: In addition to matches, CSN will produce pre and postgame shows, a weekly in-season magazine show, a monthly off-season show, a pre-season preview, a post-season wrap up special, and a behind-the-scenes documentary series. The Dynamo will also be covered heavily on SportsNet Central, the network’s live regional sports news show that airs three times daily. Dynamo players and staff will also be guests on SportsTalk Live, the network’s daily live talk and analysis show.
