We learned just over a month ago that the Flyers will be appearing on national television an impressive twenty times. Then NBC announced the Orange and Black will be featured on a four-part behind the scenes show on NHL Network titled Behind the Glass: Philadelphia Flyers Training Camp. Now we know the breakdown of the local TV schedule, namely the NBC Sports Philadelphia/NBC Sports Philadelphia+ splits:
While the Flyers are scheduled to appear exclusively on national TV eleven times, 60 of the team’s 71 locally televised games will take place on NBC Sports Philadelphia. The remaining eleven games will be airing on NBC Sports Philadelphia +. While the team’s home opener on Wednesday, October 9 against the New Jersey Devils will air nationally on NBC Sports Network, the season opener taking place in Prague, Czech Republic, will air on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
It’s worth noting that the Flyers’ first preseason game takes place this upcoming Monday at 7:00PM against the NY Islanders on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
