Starting next season, every Hawks regular-season game will be televised.
The Hawks and SportSouth have reached a long-term television rights agreement to remain the exclusive regional television partner of the franchise, it was announced Thursday.
The new agreement begins next season. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The agreement calls for SportSouth to produce all locally-available regular-season games not selected by a national network. It will also televise three exhibition games and select playoff games.
This season, the network will air 75 regular-season games. Five Hawks regular-season games will not be televised with the team playing two nationally televised games on ESPN. SportSouth did not air any of the Hawks seven exhibition games this preseason.
