The Atlanta Hustle & Peachtree Sports Network announce a milestone deal. For the first time ever Atlanta Hustle games will be broadcast to all of the Atlanta market over the air on channel 17.2 as well as on cable services Comcast & Spectrum. Starting in 2024 and extending for three seasons Hustle home games will be broadcast live. Peachtree Sports Network will be expanding throughout the state of Georgia by the end of the year. All Hustle games will continue to be available on audl.tv
“As a lifelong sports fan, I know firsthand I became a fan by watching my local teams play on broadcast television,” said WANF and WPCH Vice President and General Manager Erik Schrader. “While existing fans may follow their teams behind paywalls, there’s no question that new sports fans are born watching broadcast stations. Georgia has so many tremendous teams that simply need an audience, and so many sports fans that just need a station where they can watch live events. We’re very excited to be at the very beginning of what will be become a legacy sports tradition across our state.”
“The Atlanta Hustle is proud to represent our city and our sport on the Peachtree Sports Network. Ultimate disc is a fresh and exciting sports experience that is emerging as a local favorite for all,” said John Boezi, General Manager of the Atlanta Hustle. “With PSN's support, we're thrilled for the opportunity for a broader audience to discover the Atlanta Hustle next summer.”
