MLS and NBC announce three-year broadcast deal

Each season, NBC will broadcast two regular-season MLS games, two playoff games and two U.S. national team matches. The rest will be shown on NBC Sports Network, which will be the new name of Versus starting in January 2012.

The move signals the end of Major League Soccer's relationship with Fox Soccer Channel, while the league will continue to broadcast on ESPN. Both ESPN and NBC's contracts now run through 2014.
