'Instant Isles' will condense game broadcasts on Islanders TV 48 hours after FSN broadcast
The New York Islanders are excited to announce that Islanders TV, the team's 24 hour-a-day on demand channel, has acquired the rights to all Islanders games. Islanders TV will get each game after Fox Sports Net's 48-hour exclusivity window is over. Islanders TV, after that 48 hour window, will air an easy-to-digest 60-minute version of every Islanders game entitled "Instant Isles." Islanders TV will make each game viewable for the rest of the season.
Islanders TV will also offer an extended highlights package after each game. The highlight show, which will be called "Islelights," will feature the best moments, action and replays from each game, in a fast-paced 2-minute format.
Islanders TV is a service that debuted this season for all season ticket holders, and is now available to everyone with an internet connection on a free trial basis. With hundreds of new registrations coming in every day, Islanders TV has become a big hit in short time.
Islanders general manager Garth Snow knows the significance of having the games on Islanders TV. "The acquisition of the Islanders games just adds to the already staggering amount of great Islanders content you already get on Islanders TV," said Snow. "From day one of training camp, the Islanders TV crew has done a great job following the guys around and documenting everything that happens for the fans to see. Adding the games is the final piece of the puzzle."
The Islanders games are just the latest in a long line of content that can be found daily on Islanders TV. "Islanders Today," one of the staple shows of the channel, can be seen every morning from practice wherever the team is in North America. It is hosted by the Islanders radio team of Steve Mears and Chris King. Another must see feature of Islanders TV is the "Legends" series, which features in-depth interviews with all of the Islanders legendary players. If the Ice Girls are your thing, Islanders TV has you covered with the first reality show based on the Islanders on-ice spirit team.
