Get Your Game Televised!

HomeTown Sports is often asked how we do our game selections.  Generally speaking, coverage is determine by the source of revenue.  Colleges see sports as a great marketing tool and underwrite the production and airing.   Wabash, UIndy, Marian and Franklin are just a few of our partners.

Certain championship games are underwritten by the IHSAA or the sponsoring organization as an extention of their charter and  as a tool to sell advertising.

High School game selection becomes more undefined.  Often, we have a champion in a community who rises to find local businesses to advertise and cover the costs.  Center Grove, Noblesville and Hamilton Southeastern are examples.  This is normally done thru the booster club or parents association who desire exposure for the student-athlete, community and school.

Other amateur events are funded by dues to an organization who then contract with HomeTown Sports Indiana.  An example would be the Indiana Bowling State Championships or an AAU event.

Finally, we have our own advertisers.  They'll either desire specific local games if their customer base is localized (such as a community hospital) or regional exposure (such as Edward Jones).   These games will be targeted for the desired demographics of the client.

So, getting your game on TV isn't difficult, it's just a slight economic challenge.  The bottom line... HomeTown Sports is priced at about one half that of our competitors.  In the words of one of our college athletic director partners, who switched to HomeTown...."You guys are half the price and twice as good as the 'other' guy.  We're getting four times the value!"

Indianapolis (March 17, 2011) – RTV 6 Vice President and General Manager, Larry Blackerby, and HomeTown Sports Indiana President, Rick Vanderwielen, announced today, an exciting new partnership between RTV 6 and HomeTown Sports Indiana.

The new partnership will give more than a million Hoosiers access to the HomeTown Sports product and RTV 6 viewers’ access to a mixture of live and encore sporting events. Regional high school and collegiate games will be featured on RTV 6.2, which is available on nine cable systems throughout central Indiana, totaling nearly 830,000 viewers.

“The viewers in central Indiana are going to love this channel,” said Blackerby. “We are going to have high school sports of all types. They’ll get high school football, high school basketball, high school volleyball, high school bowling. You name it and we’re going to have it on this channel. Then you throw in the college sports from across the state, it’s a wonderful opportunity.”

RTV 6.2 can also be seen over the air to all television households in the Indianapolis market, meaning HomeTown Sports will soon be available to more than the 1.1 million Hoosiers.

“We’re excited to make our product accessible to viewers all across central Indiana,” said Vanderwielen. “By partnering with RTV6, we will be able to add digital wide-screen technology that will make our sports programming an exceptional presentation. RTV 6’s commitment to show live events will give viewers a destination for local sports.”

HomeTown Sports Indiana, a division of HomeTown Television Corporation in Noblesville, Ind., is the official producer of the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA). Under the partnership, RTV 6.2 will feature a variety of sporting events from the IHSAA, University of Indianapolis, Franklin College, and Wabash College. RTV 6.2 will also feature a live Friday Night Football Game of the Week, beginning this fall.

At one million watts, the RTV 6 digital stream is the strongest broadcast signal available. HomeTown Sports Indiana debuts on RTV 6.2 on May 1.
