UMaine Athletics Games in HD to Air on ABC 7/FOX Bangor

University of Maine Athletics and its multimedia rights partner, Learfield Sports, have entered into separate, two-year agreements with Rockfleet Broadcasting III LLC/Bangor Communications LLC, and with FOX College Sports for broadcast and distribution of Black Bear athletics events, beginning with the upcoming football season. Bangor’s WVII ABC 7 and WFVX FOX 22 will broadcast in high definition (HD) three football games, seven hockey games and up to two basketball games, plus carry a total of 14 “Black Bear Insider” shows during the 2013–14 athletics season. The games will be produced in HD by the Pack Network, which has been producing quality HD collegiate sports content for numerous schools in the Northeast, as well as Hockey East and the America East Conference. In addition, an agreement has been signed with FOX College Sports to complement the local broadcasts of WVII/WFVX. The network will provide national and statewide distribution for the Black Bears’ games and “Insider” show. Television broadcast schedules for the Black Bears will be finalized and announced by Learfield Sports’ local entity, Black Bear Sports Properties, following confirmed broadcast plans of the Colonial Athletic Association and Hockey East.
