This could actually help with the FSN-Plus games, as I have heard most of the Ch. 21 games will be on the weekend (when FSN is swamped).
Here is the press release:
Dallas/Fort Worth - TXA 21 has entered into a four-year contract with the Dallas Stars to broadcast 15 regular season games per season, plus select playoff games, beginning with the 2010-11 season. All of the telecasts will be in high-definition.
Dallas Stars broadcasts will air primarily on Saturday nights on TXA 21 and will include 30-minute pre and post-game coverage. The games to be aired on TXA 21 for 2010-11 will be announced at a later date.
"The Stars are a terrific addition to TXA 21's sports lineup," said CBS 11 and TXA 21 President and General Manager Gary Schneider. "They brought the thrill of a Stanley Cup to North Texas and play an exciting brand of hockey. We're looking forward to bringing that excitement to the fans and viewers with Saturday Night Stars games."
"The Stars are excited to enter into this agreement with TXA 21," commented team President Jeff Cogen. "It is very important for us to maintain a strong over-the-air television presence for our fans and TXA 21 is the preeminent sports carrier in our market."
Forming the broadcast team for the Stars for the 15th consecutive season will be Ralph Strangis and Daryl Reaugh. Strangis begins his 21st season as a Stars broadcaster while Reaugh will serve in his 15th season as the Stars' color analyst.
