Union announce local TV broadcast schedule

The Union have finally announced their schedule of local broadcasts on WPVI and its secondary digital channel.

The secondary channel, Live Well HD Network, can be found on Channel 6.2 over the air if you have a digital television. It’s channel 245 on Comcast and channel 466 on Verizon Fios.

Six of the 18 games will air on WPVI. Nine will air on Live Well HD, and three broadcasts are to be determined. All will be shot in high definition.

All but one of the games on will be preceded by a 30-minute pregame show, and four of the WPVI broadcasts will be followed by a 30-minute postgame show called “Union Extra.” That show might not come right

Here’s the schedule. You’ll note that some of the games are also broadcast nationally. All of the non-national broadcasts are also streamed on Major League Soccer’s website, mlssoccer.com.
