SUN SPORTS TO OFFER 25 TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING GAMES IN HIGH DEFINITION BEGINNING WITH SEASON OPENER THIS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4\r\n- UP FROM 10 LAST SEASON\r\n
TAMPA - Sun Sports is more than doubling its high definition coverage of the Tampa Bay Lightning this season with 25 of the network’s 70 games scheduled to be distributed in HD. That’s up from 10 last season.

The first Sun Sports-produced HD telecast is scheduled for Thursday, October 4, as the Lightning host the New Jersey Devils in the team’s home opener from the St. Pete Times Forum. HD coverage begins that night at 7pm with the LIGHTNING ICE TIME pre-game show, hosted by Paul Kennedy. Live post-game coverage will also be available in HD.

Fans in Northern and Central Florida with HD service from participating cable and satellite providers will have access to these 25 HD NHL Tampa Bay Lightning games this season. Viewers should check with their cable/satellite provider for HD channel number and availability in their area or check the “Check HD Listings” link on Sun Sports’ website (www.sunsportstv.com).

Over the course of the 2007-08 seasons, the 19 Fox-owned and operated regional sports networks are planning to produce more than 1,400 live events, featuring more than 3,500 hours, in high definition, making them one of the nation’s most significant producers of local HD sports programming.

These cable and satellite providers offer this enhanced package of high-def games to their HD customers at no additional charge, subject to availability. Sun Sports and these providers also continue to offer standard definition telecasts of each of these games as part of the core Sun Sports regional service distributed throughout the region.
