Comcast Hometown Network, Comcast's regional cable network covering Northern and Central California, today announced that Game On, its local sports magazine show dedicated to female athletes returns with more in-depth coverage of today’s sports news and tomorrow’s athlete to watch. The new weekly format will offer viewers what they enjoyed most about Game On, but with more up-to-date news and information. Game On will give fans details on their favorite female player’s current stats, favorite female teams’ upcoming schedules and what’s next for the following week.
Three new features are being added to the show.

All three segments will give viewers unique insights from the field as well as one-on-one studio interviews with athletes, coaches and local women’s sports organizations. Designed as a one-stop shop for female sports fans, Game On will also offer a new segment on health and fitness with Jackelyn Ho.
