Entire Home Baseball Slate to be Broadcast Across Multiple Platforms

MANHATTAN, Kan. – All 29 K-State baseball home games will be shown across multiple television and online platforms once again this season as the contests are slated to air on FS1, ESPN3, FOX College Sports (FCS), Cox Channel Kansas or K-StateHD.TV while every game, home and away, can be heard on News Radio KMAN and www.k-statesports.com, K-State Athletics and K-State Sports Properties officials announced.

Wildcat fans can watch each home game online while several contests can be viewed across the nation over traditional television. K-State, in partnership with FOX Sports, will have eight games shown on FCS, which will be produced by K-StateHD.TV. In addition, the series opener against Oklahoma State on March 24 will be broadcast on FS1 as part of the Big 12’s five-game telecast schedule on the network.

For the first time in program history, ESPN3 will stream K-State home games, starting with the March 11-12 matchups against Milwaukee. Other ESPN3-only games include Oklahoma State on March 26, Texas on April 9 and 10, and Baylor on April 23 and 24 while the last two games of the KU series (May 14-15) will be simulcast on ESPN3, K-StateHD.TV and Cox Channel Kansas.

Cox Channel Kansas, available for Cox cable subscribers on channel 22 and 2022, will carry a total of five K-State home games, starting with the March 9 contest against Creighton. Other broadcasts include April 8 vs. Texas and the entire three-game slate against KU.

Currently, three away games will also be shown on Cox Channel Kansas and Time Warner Cable Sports Channel, bringing the total number of games on television to 32. The contests include at Creighton on March 22, Omaha on April 20, and Wichita State on April 26. Also, any game broadcast on Cox and TWC can be streamed on K-StateHD.TV. 

Eight contests will air exclusively on K-StateHD.TV, the nation’s most watched institutional network since its inception in 2011. The list includes the first series of the year against Arkansas-Pine Bluff March 4-6, the March 16 game against Stephen F. Austin, and the three-game set against Western Carolina March 18-20. 

K-StateHD.TV features over 50 live games across football, volleyball, basketball and baseball as well as exclusive pre-game shows, press conferences and more. Fans can also access on-demand replays of select K-State games, including all football games, home or away. Subscriptions start at $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a full year.

In addition to every home game being broadcast on TV or streamed online, all 56 matchups can be heard on News Radio KMAN (93.3 FM/93.7 FM/1350 AM) for the sixth straight season as well as online at k-statesports.com and 1350KMAN.com. Some early season games may not be aired on KMAN due to conflicts with men’s or women’s basketball, but those contests will still be made available online.

The K-State Sports Network will broadcast five home games on the radio in 2016, including the four Friday Big 12 home games and April 19 contest against Nebraska. The four conference games are March 25 vs. Oklahoma State, April 8 vs. Texas, April 22 vs. Baylor and May 13 vs. KU.

The 2016 season starts on February 19 when the Wildcats open a four-game series at UC Riverside. K-State then heads to Surprise, Arizona to play two games each against Oregon State and Utah before returning to Tointon Family Stadium for its home opener on March 4.
