FAQ: Golden Knights Announce New TV Partner

Today the Golden Knights announced their new TV home, unveiling a multi-year partnership with the newly formed Scripps Sports set to begin in the 2023-24 season. The partnership promises to offer all locally broadcast regular season games, every preseason game, and the first round of the playoffs for free to the entire Golden Knights broadcast territory.

We understand this change brings many questions, so we’re here to try and help to answer all of them.

**If you have an additional question not covered, email it to ken@sinbin.vegas and we will wotk to get it answered and add it to this post.**

What is Scripps Sports?

Scripps Broadcasting is one of the oldest broadcast companies in the United States, founded in 1878. Scripps is the second largest operator of local ABC affiliates in the country and they currently operate Las Vegas’ ABS station, KTNV-13. Scripps Sports is a newly formed branch of Scripps Broadcasting which is expected to offer local affiliate network space to professional sports teams who have lost their regional sports network (RSN).

What channels does Scripps operate in Las Vegas?

Scripps currently operates the local ABC affiliate, KTNV-13, as well as ION Television, which is known as KMCC and can be found on channel 34 on DirecTV and over-the-air and channel 63 on Cox Cable.

Are those the channels the Golden Knights games will be on?

Yes! Every Golden Knights game next season and during the multi-year partnership will be aired on either KTNV-13 or KMCC Channel 34 (Cox #63), or both. Scripps is planning on moving ION to a new channel and rebranding KMCC as an independent station that will broadcast local and national news, local sports, and additional entertainment programming.

What are the options to receive these channels on my TV?

Both KTNV and KMCC are available on standard cable (Cox, CenturyLink, etc), via satellite TV (DirecTV, Dish, etc), and over-the-air.

What in the world is “over-the-air?”

Remember when the Golden Knights first laced em up this year for preseason games against the Coyotes, Avalanche, Kings, and Sharks?

Yeah, me neither, because those games were not broadcasted in the Las Vegas area. Only the final two preseason games were shown on TV in Vegas leaving five off the air.

In 2019, that won’t be the case thanks to KTNV, Channel 13, who will announce the news as soon as next week.

The Golden Knights are scheduled to play seven preseason games with four of them at T-Mobile Arena. The schedule is likely to be announced in the next month or so but those games should take place in the second, third, and fourth weeks of September with the regular season getting underway the first week of October.

AT&T Sportsnet will continue to air all regular season games that are not nationally broadcast, but KTNV will become the first local channel to air a Golden Knights game with their exclusive contract to show the preseason.

Further details of the broadcast, such as announcers, remain unknown, but this news is great news as no longer are Vegas fans going to be left searching the web for illegal streams of other teams’ Jumbotrons to watch their beloved Golden Knights in the preseason.
