Washington Mystics Unveil Broadcast Schedule for 2024 Season

April 17, 2024 - Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA)
Washington Mystics News Release


Washington, D.C. - The Washington Mystics and Monumental Sports Network (MNMT) announced today that local fans will be able to watch 32 of the team's 40 games on the regional media platform during the upcoming WNBA season. The first game available to fans on Monumental Sports Network will be the team's season opener on Tuesday, May 14 against the New York Liberty. Remaining games will be broadcast nationally on CBS, ESPN, and ION Television.

New this season, Monumental Sports Network will produce a Mystics-focused monthly magazine show that features the best behind-the-scenes moments and off-court stories with players, staff, and Mystics fans. MNMT is proud to be the leader in WNBA telecasts by continuing to offer Mystics gameday programs - Mystics Pregame Live and Mystics Postgame Live - to provide informative team analysis and commentary for 30 minutes before and after each game on the network. Both programs will be broadcast live from MNMT's recently opened state-of-the-art broadcast studios, with Wes Hall returning as host and Chasity Melvin returning as the primary analyst. Last season, the Mystics became the first WNBA team to feature a dedicated pre and postgame show for every regional game broadcast.

"Building off an incredible few months for women's basketball, we are delighted to provide sports fans in the DMV region a platform to watch the world's top players on a regular basis," said Friday Abernethy, General Manager, Monumental Sports Network. "Our network has made a concerted effort to promote women's sports across a variety of leagues and levels, from high school to the pros, and we can't wait for the upcoming WNBA season to begin."

The Mystics game broadcast booth will feature University of Maryland Hall of Famer Christy Winters-Scott, who returns for her 15th season as color analyst for the Mystics, and play-by-play announcer Meghan McPeak, who enters her sixth season with the team.

Single game tickets for the 2024 Washington Mystics season are currently on sale at washingtonmystics.com.

Mystics games on Monumental Sports Network will be available to fans both on linear tv and via streaming platforms within the network's geographic footprint, stretching from Delaware to Richmond. Fans can watch the games through their Pay TV subscription, on monumentalsportsnetwork.com, or by downloading the Monumental streaming app on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV and using an eligible TV Everywhere log-in.

For fans without a Pay TV subscription, in October 2023, Monumental Sports Network unveiled direct-to-consumer (DTC) subscription memberships for viewers seeking to access Monumental Sports Network's live and on-demand programming, including all Capitals, Wizards, and Mystics games shown on the network. Fans can purchase monthly or annual memberships at monumentalsportsnetwork.com or by downloading the Monumental Sports Network app. Through April 30, fans will be able to purchase discounted annual memberships ($155) at monumentalsportsnetwork.com/welcome or by downloading the Monumental Sports Network app.

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.
