For the first time, FSN Ohio will present 20 of their 75 Blue Jackets telecasts in High Definition with the first HD broadcast scheduled for Monday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. when the Blue Jackets host Wayne Gretzky’s Phoenix Coyotes. Play-by-play announcer Jeff Rimer and new color analyst Danny Gare will call the action live from Nationwide Arena. So far, 13 of the High Definition telecasts will originate from Nationwide Arena along with six on the road and one more date to be determined.
Central Ohio viewers who have HD televisions equipped with a digital cable box can find the HD broadcasts on Time Warner’s channel 753 or Insight’s channel 779 (then channel 929 after Oct. 25).
In addition to the introduction of High Definition, FSN Ohio and the Columbus Blue Jackets have made further enhancements to the telecasts with the installation of cameras in the back of both nets. The new “net cams” and the robotic camera affixed to the bottom of the center-hung scoreboard provide viewers with unique new perspectives bringing them closer to the action.
FSN Ohio coverage each game night begins with Ice Breaker, a 30-minute pre-game show, and concludes with Blue Jackets Ice Cap, a post-game show that features highlights, player interviews and analysis immediately following each game.
