"Production of this type is new for Tri-Valley TV," said Melissa Tench-Stevens, executive director at TVCTV. "Last year we only broadcast one game so we could see what the feedback from the community would be. We received such an enthusiastic response we have increased our coverage to five games this year."
"We truly appreciate the underwriters from our community who have provided generous support and stepped up to make this happen," she added.
For complete air dates and times, visit the Tri-Valley TV web site at www.trivalleytv.org. In addition, the games will be available via Video on Demand at the website the following Monday. DVDs of the games may also be purchased.
Tri-Valley Community Television provides programming over channels TV28, TV29 and TV30 on Comcast Cable, over AT&T U-Verse channel 99, and live streaming on its website.
