On October 12, Miller announced to fans on the weekly “Courtside” program that the Trail Blazers would be the NBA’s first team to stream live, in-market broadcasts of locally televised games. The opportunity to stream live, in-market games was granted to teams by the NBA earlier this summer.
Miller also said on Courtside that the Trail Blazers were in direct discussions with Comcast about making the 60-game Comcast SportsNet cable package available online by the beginning of the 2010 calendar year.
