The NBC Sports Group announced their National TV schedule for the upcoming 2015-’16 season on Monday morning. 105 regular season games are slated to be broadcast on the Network – the most they’ve ever scheduled. Of those games, 93 will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network, with 12 to be aired on the parent station, NBC.
The Kings, who were for many years outside of the league’s National broadcast interests, are set to have 10 games aired on NBCSN during the 2015-’16 campaign, including the season opener on October 7th at STAPLES Center.
During the 2013-’14 season, the Kings played nine games on NBCSN – posting a 5-4-0 record.
Last season, 2014-’15, the Kings were aired on NBCSN 12 times – posting a 6-4-2 record.
In the previous two seasons combined, the Kings are 3-3-0 when on NBCSN during home games at STAPLES Center; they’re 8-5-2 when Nationally televised on the road during that timeframe.
The Kings will have four home games broadcast on NBCSN this season, and six while playing away from Los Angeles.
