2021 Season

Talk about the Chicago Wolves, the AHL, and other hockey in general here. Not hockey? Head outside to The Great Outdoors.

I guess this is a time that not being NHL owned hurts. I just read that the icehogs are playing all home games at the BMO center, all home games will be broadcast on local tv, and they are working with the city and county trying to get limited fans allowed later in the season.

The piggies aren't nhl owned either. All their games have been on local tv (they take the internet feed). Of course the city wants fans in the arena as they get the ticket money and concessions (at least some of each).

I stand corrected. With the amount of control the hawks have over them I thought they were owned.

Before I subscribe to AHLTV, is it safe to assume that games wont be on regular tv this year?
I haven't seen an announcement on a TV schedule. I would think that they will not be on Regular TV. AHLTV isn't that bad. I liked it the last few years.

you know how cheap this franchise has become right?

this is how i see the convo going...

Fans: TV Games in 2021?

Levin: we have no money coming in, but you expect me to pay for tv time, people, trucks and everything else to put games on tv with very little money to be made back..............yeah go pound sand
This is a lost season. No playoffs, no ticket revenue. I don't blame him for not trying to put them on TV this season.

The Wolves are paying for AHL TV subscriptions for season tix holders. I believe it's just Wolves home and away. You have to upgrade if you want the league wide package.

I have bought AHLTV playoff packages in the past. Some feeds are good, but others were pretty bad. It will be interesting to see how it is from the Triphahn center. I'm going to but the all teams season pass anyway, cheaper than going to 1 game

AHL TV works pretty well, my only complaint was the games in Texas, where they insisted on using a roof camera, instead of a closer up look like most arenas. Considering it's only going to be the 4 teams that are closest to us, I don't think there are going to be any issue with the broadcasts.
