Notts TV will broadcast recorded coverage of selected Nottingham Panthers home games for the rest of the 2022-23 Viaplay Elite League season.
The team’s home games are already aired live on the club’s Panthers TV streaming service online but will now also be repeated in full on Notts TV on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
Nottingham Panthers are one of Britain’s most successful ice hockey sides and play in the Viaplay Elite League, the highest level of the sport in the UK.
The team play home games at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena.
As part of the new agreement, Notts TV will broadcast some home games played at weekends the following Wednesday nights at 9pm, and mid-week home games on Friday nights, starting at 7.30pm. All the re-runs will feature the full game action.
The first recording of a game to appear on the channel will be the home tie against Sheffield Steelers, played on Saturday, February 4. It will appear on Notts TV in full at 9pm on Wednesday, February 8.
Notts TV is broadcast across Nottinghamshire on Freeview TV channel 7, BT/YouView 7 and Virgin 159.

Chris Breese, Notts TV’s channel manager, said: “Panthers are a big part of Nottingham’s identity and also a cultural and sporting asset for the entire city, so we’re really pleased to be able to bring some of the games to our audience.
“Hopefully the new partnership will help a few more people get into Ice Hockey too and lead to even more fans getting behind the team. We’re really grateful to Panthers for reaching the agreement with us and we look forward to more exciting new programmes appearing on Notts TV throughout 2023.”
The Nottingham Panthers CEO, Omar Pacha, said: “It’s great to link-up with Notts TV with this exciting venture.
“Thanks to the outstanding work of Visionmix, we put the goals out less than an hour after a game and follow that up with the Highlights Show a couple of day later.
“This is a great chance for fans to re-live the whole game action and I would like to thank Notts TV for their support.”
