NOTICE BOARD

WSHL Notice: WPHA Preseason Will NOT be covered

Please note: in spite of what may be listed on individual teams' websites, we will not be providing coverage (live or on-demand) of any preseason games played by the new Western Provinces Hockey Association (WPHA) teams in the Western States Hockey League (WSHL). This includes the Cold Lake Wings, Edson Aeros, Hinton Wildcats and Meadow Lake Mustangs. Please review our broadcast schedule before making your purchase as we will list all games that we plan to cover throughout the season.


Delayed Start to Broadcast Schedule - JCU

Due to a lack of a internet connectivity and/or home teams' exercising of their right to exclusivity, John Carroll University (JCU) will not be able to broadcast their first two road series on our platform. This includes games scheduled for 9/28-9/29 at Ohio and 10/5-10/6 at Buffalo. Our broadcast coverage will begin with their home date vs. Toledo on 10/12. Please be aware of this when making your purchase.


Reduced Quality Notice: Partners with Low Bandwidth

Due to a lack of available bandwidth at their home facilities, the following partners will produce reduced quality live streams on a regular basis. Please be aware that broadcasts from these facilities may experience picture freezing or drop out if the limited bandwidth is further compromised in any way:

Dallas Baptist University
Dallas Snipers (WSHL)
Northern Arizona University
Wichita Jr. Thunder (WSHL)

Additionally, the following partners who film their home and road games may produce reduced quality live streams when broadcasting from opponents' facilities if the available bandwidth is not sufficient:

The Citadel - Military Institute of South Carolina
John Carroll University
San Jose State University
Slippery Rock University

All games will be recorded at full resolution and will be posted on-demand ASAP after each game's conclusion. If there are any significant variations from these established limitations - including live broadcast cancellation and/or Video-On-Demand Only recordings - we will post separate notices ASAP each week. Thank you for your understanding and for your continued enjoyment of Black Dog Hockey broadcasts!


Master Broadcast Database Updates

The 2018-19 Season will be starting in September! If the partner you are looking for does not yet have a schedule of upcoming live broadcasts listed, don't worry! Many partners are still finalizing their schedules for the 2018-19 season. Our master broadcast database will be updated daily with the latest information. Please contact us with any questions.
