Indy Fuel inks broadcast agreement with WRTV

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The city's new professional hockey team, the Indy Fuel, said Wednesday that it has reached a broadcast agreement with WRTV Channel 6 to televise the team's 36 home games during the 2014-15 season.

Many of the games will be shown live on RTV6’s Hometown Sports & News Channel, or HTSN. Key games, like the home opener Oct. 17 against the Fort Wayne Komets, will be broadcast live on the WRTV.

In addition, RTV6 News will preview the inaugural season with a 30-minute TV special.  

The Fuel will play home games at the recently renovated Indiana Fairgrounds Coliseum.

“We’re very pleased to work with RTV6 as our television partner as we open our first season and reignite Indy’s passion for pro hockey,” said Fuel team president Sean Hallett in a prepared statement.  “We wish every fan could be cheering alongside us at the Coliseum for every game – but if you can’t come to us, RTV6 will bring the action to you.”

HTSN can be seen over-the-air on channel 6.2, and is available on numerous cable systems in central and southern Indiana, including Comcast (247) and Brighthouse (410).  

The Fuel will play in the ECHL (formerly known as the East Coast Hockey League), the premier “AA” league serving as a pipeline to the National Hockey League.

The Fuel signed a five-year affiliation agreement with the Chicago Blackhawks earlier this year.

  1. So as I read this the one question that continues to come to me to ask is. Didn't Indiana only have a couple of exchanges for people to opt into which were very high because we really didn't want to expect the plan. So was this study done during that time and if so then I can understand these numbers. I also understand that we have now opened up for more options for hoosiers to choose from. Please correct if I'm wrong and if I'm not why was this not part of the story so that true overview could be taken away and not just parts of it to continue this negative tone against the ACA. I look forward to the clarity.

  2. It's really very simple. All forms of transportation are subsidized. All of them. Your tax money already goes toward every single form of transportation in the state. It is not a bad thing to put tax money toward mass transit. The state spends over 1,000,000,000 (yes billion) on roadway expansions and maintenance every single year. If you want to cry foul over anything cry foul over the overbuilding of highways which only serve people who can afford their own automobile.

  3. So instead of subsidizing a project with a market-driven scope, you suggest we subsidize a project that is way out of line with anything that can be economically sustainable just so we can have a better-looking skyline?

  4. Downtowner, if Cummins isn't getting expedited permitting and tax breaks to "do what they do", then I'd be happy with letting the market decide. But that isn't the case, is it?

  5. Patty, this commuter line provides a way for workers (willing to work lower wages) to get from Marion county to Hamilton county. These people are running your restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and retail stores. I don't see a lot of residents of Carmel working these jobs.
