The Chicago Wolves will air 72 regular-season games on network television during their milestone 20th season. The vast majority of the American Hockey League team’s games will air on U-Too (WCIU-DT 26.2). U-Too also can be found on XFinity’s Chs. 248 and 360, RCN’s Ch. 35 and WOW’s Ch. 170.
A selection of Wolves games, which have yet to be specified, will air on WCIU (Ch. 26). The U-Too/WCIU combination provides the most comprehensive network package in the franchise’s history. Moreover, all Wolves games will be broadcast in high-definition for the first time.
“We’re looking forward to the partnership with WCIU and U-Too,” said Mike Gordon, the Wolves’ president of business operations. “It provides us with the opportunity to have all of our broadcast games on one network. Our fans will notice improvements in the broadcasts, which include a new HD production truck that will provide an even better picture quality.”
“We’re excited to grow our relationship with the Wolves and their fans,” said Robert Ramsey, WCIU-TV’s vice president and general manager. “We’re proud that the U-Too will be the exclusive television home for Chicago Wolves hockey this season.”
The Wolves begin their pursuit of the Calder Cup at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at San Antonio. That game will be televised on U-Too. The Wolves 20th home opener, presented by LifeSource, will be at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Allstate Arena and broadcast on U-Too.
