EIGHT T-BIRDS GAMES TO BE BROADCAST ON JOEtv THIS SEASON
The Seattle Thunderbirds and Tribune Broadcasting Seattle announced October 23 they have partnered to broadcast eight games between the T-Birds and Portland Winterhawks during the 2018-19 season.
All eight games will be broadcast on JOEtv Channel 22/Cable 110 with four games from accesso ShoWare Center and four games from Portland. All four of the games being broadcast from accesso ShoWare Center start at 6:05pm.

The last two games on the JOEtv broadcast schedule are the last two games of the season for both the T-Birds and Winterhawks. These could be important games for both teams as they battle for playoff position in the very competitive US Division and the Western Conference.
“We continue to build on our successful partnership with JOEtv,” said Colin Campbell, T-Birds Vice President. “Both the T-Birds and Winterhawks are strong teams this season. With the growing interest in hockey in Seattle all of these games are going to be really exciting games for fans to watch and be a part of. We are very pleased with our relationship with JOEtv.”
“As its love of hockey continues to move Seattle towards an NHL franchise, we are excited once again to bring live, local hockey to Seattle fans,” said Pam Pearson, SVP/General Manager, Q13 FOX/JOEtv. “Our channels are known as the home of local sports and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with the T-Birds.”
