(Kim Raff | The Salt Lake Tribune) Real Salt Lake celebrates a goal against LA Galaxy during the Western Conference Championship at The Home Depot Center in Carson, CA on Sunday, November 6, 2011.
This weekend on TV: RSL opens the season — and in HD!

It's a new season and a new local TV contract for Utah's Major League Soccer franchise.

It's Real Salt Lake at Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday at 8 p.m. on KTVX-Channel 4. That's right, Channel 4. It's the first of 10 games that will air on KTVX this season, with another 20 on sister station KUCW-Channel 30. And all 30 games will be in high definition.

That's great news.

The only better news would be if RSL can beat the Galaxy.
