The Dallas Cowboys reportedly are ironing out a deal with Comcast to kick off a 24/7 net dedicated to the NFL franchise. The Cowboys hope to launch the channel sometime this season, The Dallas Morning News says; it would be available to subs in the MSO’s Dallas-Ft Worth market. The MSO is "always looking for new opportunities, [but] there is nothing to announce at this time," Comcast Dallas’Angel Biasatti says. While a letter of intent has not been signed, an announcement could come tomorrow. Dallas coach Bill Parcells didn’t mention the purported network during his morning press conference, although it’s likely that he’d play a part. Parcells’ Sun-morning show "Cowboys Huddle" that airs on CBS affiliate KTTV-11, likely would enjoy a 2nd run on the Comcast net. Should the deal go through the Cowboys will be only the 2nd team in the NFL with a dedicated channel, joining the Atlanta Falcons. Comcast serves more than 500K subs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
