Eleven Flyers games will be exclusively televised to a national audience this season. The team will appear nine times on the NBC Sports Network, including the home opener on Wednesday, October 9 against the New Jersey Devils. The Flyers will appear twice on NBC, both in the month of March - on Sunday, March 1 at the New York Rangers and on Sunday, March 29 vs. Pittsburgh.
NBC Sports Philadelphia will provide extensive preseason coverage of the Flyers this year. It will start on Monday when the preseason opener against the New York Islanders airs on NBC Sports Philadelphia, the first of five games that will be carried by the combined networks.
