FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots announced today an alternate viewing option for preseason telecasts, featuring Devin and Jason McCourty. The new venture, "The McCourty TwinCast," will complement the traditional preseason telecasts on WBZ-TV 4 in Boston and the Patriots Preseason Network of affiliates throughout New England for each of the Patriots three preseason games, starting Friday, Aug. 25 at 8:15 p.m. ET when the Patriots take on the Tennessee Titans.

The TwinCast will stream on Patriots.com as well as WBZ.com. Tonight's guests will include Julian Edelman, Nate Ebner and Patrick Chung.

"I am excited to watch Patriots football as a member of Pats Nation," said Devin. "I am looking forward to giving great insight on training camp and the 2023 Patriots."

The McCourty twins will watch the games from Jason's home in New Jersey and provide commentary throughout the contests. The McCourty twins bring 26 years of NFL experience to the broadcast. Devin was drafted by the Patriots in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and spent the next 13 seasons helping them win three more Super Bowl titles. Jason was originally drafted by the Titans in 2009 and spent eight seasons in Tennessee before signing with the Cleveland Browns in 2017. Jason joined Devin in New England in 2018 and helped the Patriots to their sixth overall Super Bowl championship. In 2018, the twins launched a successful podcast called "Double Coverage with the McCourty Twins." The McCourtys served as hosts and interviewed a wide variety of guests. Jason retired after the 2021 season with the Miami Dolphins and is now a co-host on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. Devin retired from the Patriots last spring and is now a member of NBC Football Night in America's broadcast team.

"I am excited to try something new," said Jason McCourty. "I am fired up to welcome my brother to the broadcast side of football and look forward to hanging out and watching a game with him. Buckle up, because it's going to be a lot of fun."

All three Patriots preseason games will continue to be broadcast on WBZ-TV with Bob Socci and Scott Zolak calling the action, sideline reports from Steve Burton and added analysis from Paul Perillo throughout the game. The McCourty TwinCast will offer a second-device viewing option to complement the coverage of the game and at times will be included in the primary broadcast on WBZ. The McCourtys will have guests of their own on their TwinCast and will provide their own style of calling the game, delving into conversations well beyond the action on the field.

"I can't think of a better pairing for the NFL's first team-produced alternate programming than Devin and Jason McCourty," said Matt Smith, senior executive producer of the Patriots preseason games and TwinCast. "The two have literally spent their entire lives together. They played football together, hosted a podcast together and won a Patriots Super Bowl together. Each of the twins earned national television opportunities within months after retiring after their respective 13-year NFL careers and Jason has already gained experience calling NFL games for national radio broadcasts. Devin and Jason are the perfect pairing for this venture and we can't wait to see their interaction and learn from their insight."
