The Wolves and Fox Sports North announced their television schedule for the upcoming season. The good news: A total of 75 games of the 2013-14 season will be televised, the most ever by the network,and 25 more than last season. But none of them will be broadcast over the air. So if you still depend on a TV antenna you are out of luck.
For the first time FOX Sports will be the exclusive home for Timberwolves games, showing nearly every game that is not scheduled for national network TV. Between the local and national broadcasts, only three regular season games will not be shown.
The games will be broadcast either on FSN or on FSN-plus. FSN will also televise two preseason games. All games will be available in high definition.
the team of Dave Benz and Jim Petersen will again be the broadcast team. Tom Hanneman, Marney Gellner and Jamie Hersch will be studio hosts before and after games, with Kevin Lynch and Quincy Lewis also providing pre- and post-game analysis.
"Fox Sports North has been a great partner to the Timberwolves, and we are excited to continue and expand this relationship for the 2013-14 season," said Ted Johnson, the Timberwolves' chief marketing officer. "Timberwolves fans now have the convenience of finding all of our games on one network."
