The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that all 82 of their 2007-08 regular season games will be locally televised. Comcast SportsNet will televise 60 games, while The CW Philly 57 (WPSG-TV) and CN8, The Comcast Network, will each televise five games. In addition, VERSUS will televise eight games exclusively in the local market and NBC’s exclusive coverage of the National Hockey League on Sunday afternoons tentatively includes four Flyers contests.

 
“We have had a very exciting offseason and are looking forward to the upcoming season,” said Flyers Vice President of Marketing and Communications Shawn Tilger. “We are very fortunate to have great local partners in Comcast SportsNet, The CW Philly 57 and CN8 and we are thrilled to be able to bring all the Flyers games to our fans for another season.”

In addition to its regular season coverage, Comcast SportsNet will televise the preseason game on Monday, September 24, between the Flyers and the New Jersey Devils at the Wachovia Center at 7:00 p.m. All Flyers home games on Comcast SportsNet are produced in high definition.

Jim Jackson, Keith Jones and Steve Coates make up the Flyers’ television team and will call the action for the Comcast SportsNet, The CW Philly 57 and CN8, The Comcast Network, broadcasts. In his 12th season of calling play-by-play action for the Flyers, Jackson has been nominated for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award in the category of Individual Achievement – Sports Play-By-Play/Color Commentary seven times, winning four times (1999, 2001, 2002 and 2003). Jones, in his second season as a member of the Flyers’ television team, will be back in the booth as an analyst. Coates, who is entering his 25th season as a member of the Flyers’ broadcast team, will again report from rinkside to provide viewers with insight and analysis of the game through interviews and live accounts of the action. Comcast SportsNet’s coverage of the Flyers, led by Executive Producer/Director Bryan Cooper, has been nominated for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award in the category of Live Sports Coverage/Series in five of the past nine years, winning twice.

Comcast SportsNet currently operates 11 sports networks that cover more than 2,400 live sporting events annually and delivers comprehensive sports news and analysis to 38 million cable and satellite homes. The CW Philly 57 (WPSG-TV) is in its ninth season as a local broadcast outlet for Flyers games, while CN8, The Comcast Network, is in its first season as a local broadcast outlet. CN8, The Comcast Network, provides more than nine million Comcast cable viewers with a unique brand of live, interactive television delivered over its own fiber-optic network to 12 states and 20 television markets stretching from Maine to Virginia and Washington, D.C.
 
NBC enters its third season as the network broadcast partner of the NHL with a new innovation: the NHL will offer flexible scheduling for NBC's nine regular season dates. Thirteen days prior to the scheduled games (on Mondays), NBC, in conjunction with the NHL, will select one game as the "Game of the Week" to be broadcast during the NBC window. If the Flyers’ game on February 10, March 2, March 18 or April 6 is not selected, the game will remain available to the team’s regional carrier, but cannot be televised during NBC's broadcast window.

VERSUS, now in more than 72 million homes, is the national cable home of the National Hockey League (NHL) and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. All of the network’s regular season games are exclusive and will be produced and shown in high definition where available.

To accommodate the needs of the NHL’s national television partners, the start time for two Flyers road games has been changed. The Flyers’ game against the Flames in Calgary on October 4 now has a 10:00 p.m. Eastern starting time and the Flyers’ game against the Penguins in Pittsburgh on November 7 now has a 7:00 p.m. Eastern starting time.
