Panther Sports Network Brings UNI Events to Your TV
on Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Cedar Falls is UNI Panther country. Through a unique partnership, fans can watch many home UNI athletics events on the Panther Sports Network.
Cedar Falls Utilities works with the city cable division and Panther Sports Properties to produce and broadcast a dozen home football, basketball, volleyball and wrestling events each year. Panther Sports Properties is the multimedia rights holder for Panther athletics.
In Cedar Falls, games are available on CFU channel 15 and in high definition on channel 415. Around the country, affiliate stations and ESPN3 pick up the games and broadcast the UNI events in their markets. In Northeast Iowa, fans can find Panther Sports Network games on KCRG 9.2.
"We know our customers want to watch the Panthers, and we appreciate our production partnership with the city cable division," said Jim Krieg, CFU General Manager.
"The city’s cable division staff is one of the best around. They produce high-quality game broadcasts that our customers enjoy."
The city cable division completes all production work, including live cameras, directing and instant replay and graphics for the UNI broadcasts. In addition to live game coverage, replays are available on Channel 15.
"This partnership allows us to provide high-quality Panther athletic events to fans in Cedar Falls and across the country," said Brian Gabel, Panther Sports Properties General Manager. "When we share our broadcast with stations around the country, we get compliments on the quality of the game production and the coverage UNI receives."
Cedar Falls Utilities customers can also catch many away UNI football contests on CFU FiberNet TV and online. For a full CFU college football schedule, visit cfu.net/football. Panther Sports Network basketball and wrestling TV schedules will be announced later this fall.
