PHILADELPHIA -- NBC Sports Philadelphia delivers unprecedented coverage of the Philadelphia 76ers, providing fans with the news and analysis they want, through live game broadcasts and exclusive content on multiple platforms.

From the award-winning broadcast team of Marc Zumoff, Alaa Abdelnaby and Molly Sullivan, to the expert analysis provided by NBA veterans Marc Jackson and Jim Lynam, to the insight provided by team Insider Jessica Camerato, no other media outlet provides the level of access to the Philadelphia 76ers that NBC Sports Philadelphia does.

NBC Sports Regional Networks to align CSN & TCN properties under ‘NBC Sports’ Brand

NBC Sports Regional Networks to align CSN & TCN properties under ‘NBC Sports’ Brand

STAMFORD, Conn. -- NBC Sports Regional Networks will align the remainder of its five CSN-branded networks, as well as two TCNs, on Oct. 2. The new names will incorporate “NBC Sports” with each of the networks’ regional designations. The announcement was made today by David Preschlack, President, NBC Sports Regional Networks and NBC Sports Group Platform and Content Strategy.

“We’re excited to complete the brand evolution of our remaining RSNs, which will now include the iconic NBC Sports name on all of our networks,” said Preschlack. “This development is a reaffirmation of our continued commitment to provide the best, most compelling local sports coverage to our fans across the country.”

The brand evolution will not impact the scheduled games, pre- and post-game shows, and other programming currently available on these networks.

CSN Chicago, CSN Northwest and CSN Philadelphia will combine “NBC Sports” with their current regional designations: NBC Sports Chicago, NBC Sports Northwest and NBC Sports Philadelphia. TCN will transition to NBC Sports Philadelphia +, and continue to house separate material produced by NBC Sports Philadelphia.

CSN Mid-Atlantic, TCN Mid-Atlantic and CSN New England will also adopt the city names used by their primary team partners, becoming NBC Sports Washington, NBC Sports Washington + and NBC Sports Boston, respectively.

The brand progression of the NBC Sports Regional Networks, which began in April with NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California, will be complete in advance of the 2017-18 NHL and NBA regular seasons. New York-based SNY will retain its name.

In addition to new names, the NBC Sports Regional Networks will feature enhanced logos and graphics. They will continue to feature the NBC Peacock, which was first integrated into the networks’ logos in 2012, the year after the formation of NBC Sports Group.

Many NBC Sports production, programming elements and on-air talent have been incorporated on the RSNs since the Comcast-NBCUniversal acquisition in 2011, much like NBCSN and Golf Channel. In addition to the integration of the NBC Peacock in 2012, “Comcast SportsNet” changed to “CSN” in 2016. Similarly, several NBC Sports Regional Networks collaborate with NBC Owned Television Stations in their respective markets on content and other initiatives.
