Adelphia Carrying Sabres on Lower Channel

May 18, 2006

In response to the Eastern Conference Finals television schedule, Adelphia Communications has decided to carry all of the Outdoor Life Network's (OLN) coverage on basic cable.

"We know how important the Sabres are to the community so it was absolutely essential to be able to provide our customers the opportunity to watch all the games," said Tom Haywood, vice president of operations, Adelphia Communications. "We also did not want to leave to chance the fact that CBC could change its schedule at any time so we decided to air all of the games on Channel 71 regardless of their schedule."

Adelphia will provide its Classic Cable subscribers (referred to as basic cable) OLN's coverage of the third-round games on Channel 71 at no additional cost. Even though according to CBC's website the Canadian network will air games 3, 4 and 5, these games also will air on Channel 71.
