NCHC Beefs Up TV Schedule

Earlier, LetsGoDU reported that Root Sports  (ROOT) will be televising six DU hockey games.

Assuming you have access to CBS Sports Network (CBSSN), American Sports Network (ASN), and Fox College Sports (FCS), there are an additional 6 games (below) you can watch DU as well as a number of other NCHC tilts on these same networks. DU's announced television games:

ROOT           Friday, Oct 16         Michigan State @ Denver
ROOT           Friday, Nov 6          CC @ Denver
FCS              Saturday, Dec. 5      Denver @ North Dakota
ROOT           Friday, Dec 11        St Cloud @ Denver
CBSSN         Friday, Jan 1           Notre Dame @ Denver
ROOT           Saturday, Jan 2       Notre Dame @ Denver
ASN              Friday, Jan 15         Western Michigan @ Denver
ROOT           Friday, Jan 22         Minnesota Duluth @ Denver
CBSSN         Friday, Jan 29         Denver @ Miami
CBSSN         Friday, Feb 12         North Dakota @ Denver
ROOT           Saturday, Feb 13     North Dakota @ Denver
ASN             Thursday, Feb 18     Denver @ CC
???               Saturday, Feb 20     *CC @ Denver (Coors Field)

It will be interesting to see if the Battle on Blake on Saturday, February 20th makes it onto television.

Overall, a great move by the NCHC to increase exposure.

*Battle on Blake night game - TBD???

Living in California, I get CBSSN and FCS. Nothing close for ASN and Root isn't on my cable.Guess I'll have to see what is offering for the Pios.

I would imagine both Root and Altitude would be interested in the Battle on Blake. That game would be attractive enough to generate paid local media interest and some advertisers vs. a typical DU subsidized broadcast with a tiny audience.

Good to see you are back Vizoroo. I'm in the same boat as you on the East coast. The NCHC is now televising DU road games. Thus with NCHC TV and Piovision, one can probably get every game besides the 6 Root games and the Halloween trip to Boston. I just need to see how much overlap there is between NCHC games and the CBSSN and FCS schedules to see if it makes sense to invest in NCHS TV.
I'll go to the games in Beantown.
