What is HomeTown Sports Indiana?

HomeTown Sports Indiana will be Indiana's Television portal for local sports. We'll be seen on channel 81 on Comcast and soon, Brighthouse digital cable. Here's our FAQ about our new network: Are you owned by Comcast? No, we are partners with Comcast and Brighthouse. We are a sports production company formed in 2002 as HomeTown Television Corporation. For the last 7 years, we've produced nearly 1000 sports events seen on the web and on analog channel 19 in Hamilton County. What Sports will be Seen on Channel 81? The best answer to this question is everything that is an Indiana High School, College or Professional sports. For years...actually since the old channel 4 days, local sports have been pretty much absent from television. Our goal, reverse this and bring all who desire a television audience a presence on our network. So, name a few sports we'll see... All future IHSAA championship sports will be on 81. Plus, thru a partnership with, you'll see Soccer and Softball state finals. Also on HomeTown this fall:
