In August 2022, Monumental Sports & Entertainment acquired full ownership of NBC Sports Washington from Comcast/NBC Universal. The station was rebranded Monumental Sports Network in September 2023 with a new slate of programming. In November, Monumental Sports Network announced partnerships with several local universities to air 50 men’s and women’s college basketball games on the network during the 2023-24 season. The network also broadcasts live college football, college volleyball, boys and girls high school basketball, esports, and recently announced a slate of Washington Spirit (NWSL) and Old Glory DC (Major League Rugby) games airing this spring and summer.

Sports Techie, are you getting enough women sports? Female and now male fans, are wanting more live games and content which is what Monumental Sports Network are offering together with the Mystics to meet this highly contagious need.

The regional sports networks (RSNs) business model is being forced to pivot especially after Diamond Sports filed for Chapter bankruptcy protection last year. The DTC offering by MNMT seems to be the next evolution for fans to consume video streams, as well as receiving broadcasts via the old rabbit ear, antennae’s, which are much improved with digital capabilities, yet still offered for free by the likes of the Phoenix Suns.

However you tune into the Mystics for the 2024 season on Monumental Sports Network this summer, be sure to try and also make it to the Entertainment and Sports Arena to support the team in person.

Mystics on three – 1,2,3, MYSTICS!
