OXFORD, Ohio - With the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's announcement of its 2012-13 television schedule Monday, Miami Hockey will be televised at least 10 times during the regular season, including two national TV games. RedHawk fans will also have the option to watch and hear the RedHawks online and on the radio.
Four of Miami's games will be broadcast through the CCHA's TV package, starting on Friday, Oct. 26 when the RedHawks play at rival Michigan. That contest will be televised on Comcast Television, which is offered on Comcast's Digital Limited Basic Tier Channel 900, to about 1.1 million customers in the state of Michigan.
The RedHawks first nationally televised contest will be Friday, Dec. 14 at Ohio State, which will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network (BTN). BTN is available to an estimated 90 million homes in the U.S. and Canada through agreements with more than 300 affiliates. BTN2Go is a digital extension of the Big Ten Network that delivers live and on-demand programming to existing BTN subscribers via the web, smartphones and tablets.
Both games against Notre Dame this year will be televised with the home game against the Fighting Irish Friday, Feb. 15 being aired nationally on CBS Sports Network. The game against Notre Dame is Miami's only scheduled appearance on CBS Sports Network, which is available across the country via local cable and video providers and nationally on DISH (Channel 158) and DirecTV (Channel 613). The Hockey City Classic in Chicago played outdoors against Notre Dame on Sunday, Feb. 17 will be televised on FOX Sports Detroit. FOX Sports Detroit's high-definition coverage is broadcast to more than 3.2 million cable and satellite households throughout Michigan and portions of Northwest Ohio and Northern Indiana.
In addition to the TV games through the CCHA, Miami will be televised at least six times through the Miami IMG Sports Network on Time Warner Cable Sports Channel. The TWC Sports Channel is available throughout the state of Ohio on channel 311 and in HD on 1311. All six contests that will be broadcast occur in the second half of the season with the RedHawks' home series against Bowling Green Jan. 25-26, Alaska Feb. 1-2 and Ohio State Mar. 1-2 set to air on the TWC Sports Channel. Other games may be added to the slate. The Friday games in each of those series (Jan. 25, Feb. 1, Mar. 1) will also be shown on SportsTime Ohio (STO), which reaches much of the state of Ohio. Channel listings for STO are available here.
All home Miami hockey games will also be streamed (video) live on MURedHawks.com through the Miami All-Access subscription package, with the exception of the Feb. 15 game against Notre Dame because it is being televised nationally by CBS Sports Network. All road RedHawk contests can be heard on Miami All-Access as well, as the "Voice of Miami Hockey," Greg Waddell, returns for his seventh season calling RedHawk action. In addition to video and audio of Miami Hockey, All-Access subscribers will be able to watch several other home sporting events, coaches shows, highlights and more. To purchase Miami All-Access, click here, while an early bird special is available for those interested in a 12-month package here (must sign up by Oct. 6).
Along with television and online streaming, several RedHawk games will air locally on the radio. All but a handful of games this season will be broadcast on WKBV-AM 1490 out of Richmond, Ind. while 10 games are scheduled to air on WMOH-AM 1450 out of Hamilton, Ohio. Waddell will once again have the call for the RedHawks on the radio, as well. The radio schedule is subject to change, however.

Miami opens its season with an exhibition game against Western Ontario this Sunday, Oct. 7 at 4 p.m. at Steve Cady Arena. The RedHawks then begin the regular season hosting Colgate Oct. 12-13 with all three games, including the exhibition, being streamed through All-Access while both Colgate contests will be aired on WKBV-AM 1490.
