WNBA strikes deal with CBS Sports to expand national TV coverage

The first game will feature the Minnesota Lynx on May 25.

Already televised on regional Fox Sports networks and ESPN, the WNBA on Monday announced a multi-year partnership with CBS Sports that will see 40 games each year televised on CBS Sports Network. 

The new deal impacts the Minnesota Lynx with six of their games scheduled to be broadcast on the 24-hour CBS Sports Network channel, which the WNBA notes is "widely available through all major cable, satellite and telco distributors as well as via OTT streaming service providers YouTube TV, fuboTV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV and Hulu." 

Here's a look at the entire CBS Sports Network schedule, which begins with Minnesota's season opener May 25 against the Chicago Sky.
