The Rhinos have signed with Time Warner Cable to broadcast home games.
“We tried it as a test last season for the playoffs, and the feedback we got from the fans and sponsors was unbelievable” said Coach Cory Herman.
“We were approached by several sponsors inquiring about advertising on the broadcasts”.
The games are shown on a tape delayed basis and are also available anytime free on Metrosports On Demand on Time Warner Cable channel 832.
Russ Kalman Broadcast Manager for Time Warner’s MetroSports added “we’ve gotten a lot of calls about the Rhinos games we did this past season”.
“After doing the broadcasts, I saw for myself that the Rhinos really are a first class operation. It makes sense they’ve had so much success. It’s really a win-win for both parties”.
The Rhinos have also re-signed with B2 Networks for internet broadcasts.
“Going with B2 Network’s was one of the best decisions we’ve made”.
“The quality, and service, have been fantastic, we couldn’t be happier to continue our relationship with Bruce LeVine and B2 Network’s”, said Herman.
“The Rhinos have been a real surprise for us at B2 Network’s, the level of broadcast feed they send us is fantastic, real play by play and color commentators, multiple cameras, and instant replay, really provide a top notch viewing experience”, Bruce LeVine, B2 Network's Senior Vice President of Sports Programming.
”Junior hockey fans from around the country have proven that Rhinos hockey is a major attraction and with the enhanced broadcasts. B2 expects even more viewers and popularity for the El Paso Rhinos in the upcoming years.”
