The Women's United Soccer Association has traded its four-year TV pact with
Turner Sports for a new two-year deal with Pax TV.

The WUSA will get 22 live, Saturday-afternoon telecasts on Pax beginning next
season.

The league was carried on AOL Time Warner Inc.'s CNN/SI and, less frequently,
on Turner Network Television.

The move comes as AOL Time Warner is considering morphing CNN/SI into a
basketball channel that would be co-owned with the National Basketball
Association.

The company is considering revamping the channel as part of a new TV-rights
deal currently being negotiated with the NBA.
