Postolos details future television deal for Astros
HOUSTON -- Astros president and CEO George Postolos said Friday the club is aware of the fans' frustrations of not being able to see games that are not televised in Houston and markets in San Antonio and Austin this year.

He said the Astros would like to get as many games televised as possible this year on FS Houston, while knowing it will be able to televise all games on the regional sports network the Astros will share next year with the NBA's Houston Rockets.

"Everybody wants to see their team go up against the best and the high-profile young opponents," Postolos said. "So if you're looking at it from a fan perspective, [not televising] games is difficult to understand. We certainly want to do everything we can to encourage our broadcast partner for the season to program their network to appease Astros fans."

This launch of Comcast SportsNet Houston this fall will not only bring the Astros increased revenue, but it will give them the kind of exposure large market teams like the Yankees (YES Network) Red Sox (NESN) and the Cubs and White Sox (Comcast SportsNet Chicago) experience with their own networks.

"The Astros and Rockets will get their turn with Comcast SportsNet Houston," Postolos said.
