PATS/ACCESS ANNOUNCE EXPANDED BROADCAST SCHEDULE

The Western Hockey League (WHL) and Access Communications are proud to announce a three-year broadcast agreement commencing this year and through the 2018-19 WHL season. The WHL and Access are committed to providing local hockey coverage throughout the province of Saskatchewan. If you love hockey, you’ll love the WHL on Access7!

“As a 100% community-owned company Access understands the importance of staying connected to our communities and to local events,” said Jim Deane, CEO, Access Communications Co-operative. “Our coverage of the 2015-16 WHL season and playoffs drew more than 12,500 households.”

“The WHL is excited to partner with Access to ensure WHL hockey is aired regularly in Regina and to more fans in Saskatchewan than ever before,” commented WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “We would like to thank Shaw, the WHL’s official regional cable broadcast partner, for their support in making this new partnership a reality.”

In partnership with the WHL’s regional community cable broadcast partner Shaw Communications, Access7 will be broadcasting a minimum 40 WHL regular season games in the 2016-17 season across Saskatchewan, of which at least 10 will feature the Regina Pats. In addition, broadcasted games will feature all six of the WHL’s East Division teams including all five Saskatchewan-based clubs. Games will be available on Access channels 7 or 70 (depending on the community).

“We are delighted to successfully partner with the Western Hockey League,” commented Wade Peterson, Community Programming Manager, Access Communications. “The Access7 broadcasts have provided the WHL with outstanding exposure throughout Saskatchewan and have allowed fans to follow the WHL throughout the regular season and entire playoffs.”
