Wild TV Schedule Unveiled
 
Pretty much same old, same old.

-72 games on FSN/FSN+
-9 games on NBCSN
-1 game on NBC

NBCSN games feature all the regular national opponents like Chicago, Washington, Pittsburgh San Jose, Dallas along with a couple surprises like St. Louis and Phoenix. The NBC game is February 17th against Detroit. It looks like the Wild are above the Wolves and Gophers in FSN/FSN+ games but below the Twins given the number of April late-season FSN+ telecasts.

Thoughts?

I pay way more attention to all things hockey than I really need to.

Schedule releases are not one of them. I literally couldn't care less about it.

Inb4 a lock-out related remark.

Damn, beat my lockout related comment by a minute.

This schedule means nothing with the lockout coming...

It means there is something to talk about besides a lockout.

Also for Felix and our Canadians, looks like there are 5 TSN games and other TSN2 gems. Also improved in the NHL Network category.

Observation #1: The two games in Nashville are on Saturdays. Very wonderful.
Observation #2: Wow. Tons of road games in November. 10/15 games.

Jarick 08-30-2012 12:51 PM

Observation: meh.

I don't really care how they are on TV, just when.

Northland Wild Man 08-30-2012 12:54 PM

I think that November will be the biggest test for the team this year.

(Only if there is no lockout of course).

Generic User 08-30-2012 12:56 PM

Also, I really, really hope that Center Ice broadcasts waaaay more games in HD this year.

Only thing I'm curious about is did we have a game on NBC last season? I feel like we never did.

Against Detroit, IIRC.

They did. The Bruins game was as part of "Hockey Day in America."

Sucks that the preseason games won't be on tv

SwimToTheMoon 08-30-2012 01:45 PM

January 2 :)

GopherState 08-30-2012 02:33 PM

If anyone cares, my thoughts on the TV schedule.

Billy Mays Here 08-30-2012 02:40 PM

Yet again, the national networks like the Xcel as just like last year, 7 of the 10 games are at home.

Sharppi 08-30-2012 02:48 PM

Sat. 29 @ Dallas 7:00 p.m. FSN

I will probably try to go and see that game in Dallas, as I might actually be in Houston at that time. Also trying to catch some Aeros games as company has couple season tickets to Aeros games.

Any idea which ones will be picked up by FS-Wisconsin, or how being in the Milwaukee market will affect me if I choose to get Gamecenter Live? I'm just afraid I'll be blacked out of everything.

If you get gamecenter live and you get black outs check out hotspot shield.

I'm in the same boat so I'm wondering if I'll get games on tv or if I'll have to stream in my dorm. It's really more of an issue of convenience though.

I bet home games will be on Wild TV just like last year.

Games in Milwaukee are on FS Wisconsin or the FS Wisconsin alternate channel (unless there's a Bucks and Brewers game on at the same time).

At least that's the way it was last year for the two companies I had (Time Warner and AT&T U-Verse.)

Since baseball and basketball seasons only overlap for a few games in April, chances are there will be about 65-70 Wild games on FS Wisconsin next year, assuming they do the same thing they did last year.

SwimToTheMoon 09-01-2012 02:09 PM

Hurry up and get an NHL team in Milwaukee already!!
