HOCKEY: Bemidji State men's home games to return to Lakeland TV in 2013-14
BEMIDJI — Bemidji State University and Lakeland Public Television have announced a television broadcast partnership for BSU men’s hockey in 2013-14, extending the relationship that dates back to the 2010-11 season — BSU’s first at the Sanford Center.
Lakeland is scheduled to televise all 19 BSU home games this season, beginning with the Beavers’ series against Minnesota Oct. 18-19.
All games will be televised live locally in high definition on Lakeland’s Primary channel, Lakeland Prime, while the feed will be distributed regionally in standard definition on the Minnesota Channel — a collaborative effort of all Minnesota’s Public Television stations.
The agreement also makes BSU hockey live statewide over the air, on Dish Network, DirecTV and on virtually every cable system across Minnesota. In addition, viewers in parts of North Dakota and Wisconsin will have cable access to the games.
Locally, Lakeland Prime can be seen by PBTV customers on (9) or (509) and by Midcontinent Communications customers on (9) or (609).
Play-by-play announcer Scott Williams and analyst Eric Monsrud will continue to provide commentary for the 2013-14 season.
