Sacramento Kings fans across Northern California got some good news Thursday. Sacramento Kings Logo
For the first time ever, consumers will be able to watch every game of the season in their own home. Cable giant Comcast has announced a new Central California regional sports network that will run 24 hours a day.
The network will include coverage of every pre-, regular- and post-season Kings game. It's part of a 10-year agreement between the Maloof Sports and Entertainment and Comcast.
"It's all additional games, nobody loses anything in this deal. It's great for everyone," said John Thomas, president of Maloof Sports and Entertainment.
The new network will also carry some Sacramento Monarchs games.
The channel will be available on Comcast's expanded basic lineup.

NBA Season Pass. If you're the type of person who watched most or all of the team's games, it's probably a worthy expenditure.

Although I'm a Bulls fan, I love this news. I just found out today that this channel will be available on my ancient basic analog cable service, meaning I'll get more basketball games than just the Warriors on FSBA, whatever national games are on, and the occasional Bulls broadcast on WGN.

Well...technically the Warriors ARE our local team in Fresno, even though I don't believe I know one actual Warriors fan. It's about a 95-5 split- Lakers to Kings, and I question that high number of Kings fans around here. I suspect of the 5 per cent, about 90 per cent have been Kings fans for about four/five years.
