A place to see the Mystics

Less than an hour after the Washington Mystics revealed their final roster for the 2019 WNBA season, they announced their full TV schedule. The schedule will allow fans to watch every game this season, and most games will be available on more than one network.

Monumental Sports Network (MSN) will broadcast 26 of the team’s 34 games, and fans can also stream those games on the MSN app. Longtime Mystics analyst Christy Winters Scott will return alongside Meghan McPeak, who has previously worked as a play-by-play announcer for the NBA, NBA G-League, and National Basketball League of Canada.

Monumental Sports Network will also broadcast a special event featuring Mystics guards Natasha Cloud and Kristi Toliver on Thursday, May 30. The Atlantic’s “Athletes + Activism” event will discuss athletes’ role in social change and feature former ESPN writer Jemele Hill; Athlete Ally founder Hudson Taylor; and Olympians Brianna Scurry, Hilary Knight, Ibtihaj Muhammad, and John Carlos, among others. The event will take place at the Mystics’ arena from 11:30am to 2:00pm.

Beyond MSN, five other networks will air at least one Mystics game during the 2019 season. Nine games will be available on NBC Sports Washington (NBCSWA), eight will be on CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) and seven will be on NBA TV. Rounding out the channel lineup, four games will be on ESPN or ESPN2, four will be on Twitter—including the season opener, which aired on May 25—and one game will be on ESPN3.

There is also WNBA League Pass, through which fans can watch 148 WNBA games this season for $16.99 or just the games featuring their favorite team for $9.99. (There is even a seven-day free trial for new members.)

However you choose to watch the games—live, on television, or streaming—make sure to tune in to see what the best players in the world will do this season.
