For the second year in a row, all 72 Indianapolis Indians home games are scheduled for broadcast on Comcast's Xfinity and Bright House Networks.

The games will be on digital channel 81 on both networks, beginning when the team faces the Columbus Clippers on opening night at 7 p.m. April 7, the team announced Wednesday.

Veteran Indians play-by-play man Howard Kellman and color guy Scott McCauley will call the action as a part of a simulcast with WNDE-1260, the team's radio home.

The video portion will be produced by Indianapolis-based WebStream Productions, which has produced live streams of Indians games at Victory Field on IndyIndians.com for eight seasons.

Both cable networks also plan to include game highlights and player interviews in their on-demand offerings as part of the partnership.

“We expect this year’s team to be strongly competitive, and the fun of being at Victory Field will be showcased for hundreds of thousands of potential viewers," Indians General Manager Cal Burleson said in a prepared statement.
