Nearly 1 million more television households in the Carolinas will have access to Charlotte Bobcats broadcasts this season.
Jeff Genthner, who heads SportSouth, the regional Fox sports network that televises Bobcats games, told the Observer Tuesday that potential viewers will increase to over 2.8 million households, up from 1.87 million last season.
Some Bobcats fans – as nearby as Rock Hill or Lake Norman – didn’t always have television access to the games. SportSouth expects television providers to pay a surcharge to carry Bobcats games, and some refuse to do so.
“We’re almost now at the point where anyone who lives in North or South Carolina will have access to Bobcats games through some (television) provider – cable, satellite or telephone. At least one,” Genthner said. “Now any holes only exist to the extent of someone’s willingness or unwillingness to change service providers.”
