TEAM MEDIA NOTES: CABLE PARTNER SHINES FOR LIGHTNING
Published April 23, 1996
In exchange for the Sunshine Network's guarantee of a sellout for tonight's Game 4 with the Flyers, the Lightning has granted the cable net the rights to carry the game. Sunshine will also carry Game 5 in Philadelphia. Originally concerned about ticket sales, the Lightning did not make Game 4 part of the TV package. But as sales neared a sellout, Sunshine "stepped in" an offered to buy up tickets if it could air the game (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 4/23). ROCKETS READY: Since NBC has decided not to air either Games 3 or 4 of the Rockets-Lakers series from The Summit, both home games will be televised in the Houston area as "RocketsVision" on Special Order Sports, Prime Sports' pay-per- view division (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 4/23). BULLS SHOW GETS A BACKER: SportsChannel and The Sports Authority will team up to bring SC's Bulls pre-game show from The Sports Authority's downtown Chicago store (Ontario and Wabash) on April 26 (SportsChannel).
