MADISON, Wis. -- Fox Sports Wisconsin and its alternate channel, as well as Big Ten Network, NBC Sports Network and Fox College Sports will combine to broadcast 23 Wisconsin men's hockey games live for the 2012-13 regular season. In addition, 13 of Wisconsin's home games will air tape-delayed on Wisconsin Channel.
FS Wisconsin and its alternate channel will carry 15 Badger hockey games this season, the most it has shown since the 2006-07 season. Nine of those will air on FS Wisconsin, while the remaining six will be shown on FS Wisconsin plus, an alternate FS Wisconsin station. Check your local listings.
The UW television schedule on FS Wisconsin starts with the Friday, Nov. 2 game against Colorado College at the Kohl Center. That night, Wisconsin will dedicate the ice at the Kohl Center to "Badger Bob" Johnson.
Big Ten Network will show four contests beginning with the Nov. 17 contest at Minnesota. It will also broadcast the Jan. 18 game against Miami, the Hockey City Classic against Minnesota on Feb. 17 and the Feb. 25 tilt against Penn State.
Fox College Sports will carry the Feb. 1-2 series at North Dakota.
Already announced, NBC Sports Network will show the Nov. 30 contest at Denver and the March 1 game at Nebraska Omaha.
In total, all but three of UW's 19 regular-season home games will air live on television.
Six Badger road games, in addition to the Hockey City Classic at Soldier Field in Chicago, will also air live.
Wisconsin Public Television returns as part of Wisconsin's television package, showing 13 home games on tape delay. Wisconsin Channel will air the games at 10 p.m., and again the following afternoon.
The Wisconsin Channel is available on WPT's Digital TV lineup. It occupies the second position in WPT's multicast feeds. That means it's 38.2 from Green Bay, 21.2 from Madison, etc. If you get multicast channels via a cable service, channel assignments will vary.
Paul Braun and Rob Andringa return to call the action for Wisconsin's FS Wisconsin contests, with Barry Richter taking up occasional analyst duties. Robb Vogel, along with Theran Welsh and Ron Vincent, will man the booth for the tape-delayed Wisconsin Channel broadcasts.
