HURRICANES ADD 10 GAMES TO 2002-03 TELEVISION BROADCAST SCHEDULE

GAMES AVAILABLE ON TIME WARNER DIGITAL CABLE

DURHAM, N.C. (Nov. 19, 2002) – Ken Lehner, Vice President of Marketing Communications for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will add an additional 10 games to its television broadcast schedule. In a unique partnership with WRAZ-TV/DT and Time Warner Cable, the 10 games will be shown in High-Definition on WRAZ-DT.

Nothing demonstrates the advantages of HDTV like live sports, and the fast-paced nature of hockey showcases this new technology especially well. Digital viewers will be able to see the players like never before, and the 16:9 wide aspect ratio of HDTV along with the exceptional resolution will offer hockey fans unprecedented field of view and clarity.

“HD captures all the incredible excitement of NHL action,” said Tommy Schenck, General Manager, FOX 50 WRAZ-TV/DT. “It really adds a whole new dimension to the game.”

“We are excited to be working with WRAZ and the Hurricanes to bring this exclusive programming to Time Warner Cable,” said Tom Adams, President of the Raleigh-Fayetteville division of Time Warner Cable. “The 10 HD games will not be available on the satellite TV services.”

The Carolina Hurricanes’ 2002 NHL Eastern Conference Championship title propelled local hockey support to new levels, and as area hockey enthusiasm continues to grow, these High-Definition broadcasts will provide the local fan-base with the highest quality sports coverage.

“This emerging technology is incredible for our sport,” said Ken Lehner, VP of Marketing Communications of the Carolina Hurricanes. “This will only fuel the growing enthusiasm for Carolina Hurricanes hockey. The Hurricanes will be just the fourth team in the NHL that will be broadcasting in HD with a local rights holder.”

To watch this select, ten-game package in High-Definition, viewers with High-Definition displays can turn to WRAZ-DT (channel 49.1 or 49.2 DTV) or to Time Warner Digital Cable channel 250. Time Warner Digital subscribers without a High-Definition display will be able to watch a standard definition broadcast of the game on digital channel 251.

Games to be carried on WRAZ-DT:

December 18      7:00 p.m.      vs. Tampa Bay
