| No Comments

Comcast SportsNet Chicago will broadcast 80 regular season games played by the Chicago Cubs during the 2011 season. The first will be on Apr. 2, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

New enhancements to Comcast SportsNet game telecasts this year include a new HD technology that is capable of showing slow-motion replays of over 2,000 frames per second.

Fans will also be able to watch "Pitch Trax," a technology that animates the precise pitch location throughout each game in a variety of angles. Pitch Trax will be available for every game that CSNC broadcasts.

Other enhancements being made this season to Cubs broadcasts include an all-new graphics package and scoring data that features real time stats in a variety of key categories.
