Comcast to show Saints' preseason games

Comcast announced Friday afternoon it would carry all four of the New Orleans Saints' NFL preseason football games, including Friday night's preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The games are being provided to Comcast by Cox Sports Television (CST).

"We are pleased that CST gave us the opportunity to provide these games to our customers," Ronnie Colvin of Comcast said.

In addition to Friday's game, Comcast will show the Saints at the Houston Texans on Aug. 22; the Saints at the Oakland Raiders on Aug. 29; and the Saints at home against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 3. Each of the games will be shown on Comcast channel 12 for basic cable customers, and each includes a live 30-minute pre-game show originating from the CST Tonight Studios in New Orleans.
