KINGS PARTNER WITH GROUP W; NBA NON-CABLE LIST NOW AT THREE
Published September 21, 1995
The Sacramento Kings have announced that the team will televise an additional 25 games on local cable this season via the Kings Broadcasting Network with the debut of Kings Cable Television (KCTV), a product of a partnership with Group W Sports Marketing. Prior to this deal, the Kings were one of four NBA teams without a cable package with the Pacers, Bucks and Clippers. The 25 cable games will be in addition to the 35 games carried over-the-air on flagship KPWB-TV. Group W will offer Kings games to each local cable system in the team's "marketing territory" -- including Sacramento, Stockton, Modesto and other communities (Kings).
