Blazers look to Comcast for deal

    Comcast Corp. is in negotiations with the Trail Blazers on a TV deal that would make the NBA franchise the cornerstone of a new Portland-based sports cable channel.

    The negotiations come as the team’s current cable partner, Fox Sports Net, has called off talks to renew its deal with the Blazers.

    Comcast’s prospective network could provide a broader platform for Oregon sports. It also might create a competitive advantage for Comcast, which will lose its regional cable monopoly when Verizon starts offering its own fiber-optic cable TV service sometime in the next several months.
