After yesterday when I failed to mention Bemidji State’s home hockey games on Lakeland Public TV (remember, I am stupid), Brad Folkestad over at BSU’s athletic media relations department has done me a solid and sent me a press release and full schedule of games that are scheduled to be on Lakeland this season.
All games will be broadcast 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 will continue to make BSU hockey live statewide over the air, on Dish Network, DirecTV and on virtually every cable system across Minnesota. In addition, the Minnesota Channel provides statewide coverage in North Dakota and portions of Wisconsin and South Dakota. This partnership will allow BSU hockey to reach a potential audience of over 5.5 million people each broadcast.
Find the full press release from BSU here. The Beavers’s first televised game (according to the schedule) will be Oct. 19 against future WCHA opponent Lake Superior State.
