For the Philadelphia Union games that are not televised nationally, broadcast partners 6abc, Comcast SportsNet and the Comcast Network have you covered.

WPVI-TV/6abc will air four games in its sixth season as the official broadcast partner of the Union, while the other two networks, both in their fifth season, will air a total of 21 matches.

Once again, it will be JP Dellacamera and Peter Pappas back in the booth. Dellacamera is returning for his sixth season as the play-by-play man for the Union, with Pappas joining him for his second year as color analyst. Tony Limarzi will be returning for the Union's 30-minute pregame show, and will also be conducting a halftime segment during all home contests.

This year, the season opener against Colorado Rapids will be broadcast on 6abc on March 7. As for the other three games, those will be held on April 11 against New York City FC, May 2 against Toronto FC and June 27 against Montreal Impact.

Also returning is "State of the Union" which is the Union's weekly magazine show that airs every other week on Friday nights on The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet. In its fifth season, the show is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. on TCN and 11:30 p.m. on CSN.
