Red Bulls, MSG Network sign multiyear TV deal

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Red Bulls have signed a multiyear agreement with the Madison Square Garden Network, ensuring it will continue as the local television home of the MLS team.

MSG, which is a subsidiary of Cablevision Systems Corp., has held the television rights to the Red Bulls/MetroStars for the past 13 years. It will telecast approximately 20 games per season as part of the new deal.

MSG will also produce a half-hour postgame show for all Red Bulls home games telecast on the network. The first game to air this season will be April 5 against the Chicago Fire.

Shep Messing will return as the game analyst for his eighth season and Steve Cangialosi will return for his second season as play-by-play announcer.
