EOS has learned the Cosmos have struck a broadcast deal with One World Sports that will not only air all seven of their Fall NASL Championship home games, but also feature a television series highlighting the team’s history.
JP Dellacamera and Shep Messing, former broadcast partners for both the Metrostars and the New York Red Bulls, will once again team up as the play-by-play and color analysts for the team’s home matches. EOS could not confirm whether road fixtures would be televised at the time of this report.
All home matches will be aired in HD.
“We are executing on our longstanding vision of providing leadership and innovation in global sports programming,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, President and CEO of ONE World Sports. “We also plan to continue to add compelling new programming to our offerings at ONE World Sports. The move to HD and our highly differentiated, bold new graphics tee us up to drive our network to its next level of industry and consumer success.”
Along with the game broadcasts, One World will also features a “Cosmos Classics” series highlighting some of the legendary moments in team history. The first five episodes of the series will air throughout the month of July.
The New York City based One World Sports is currently carried by Dish Network (Channel 9794 and Channel 646 in International Sports Pack), Cablevision’s Optimum TV (Channel 1159) and Mediacom.
