NHIAA blacks out Concord semifinal football coverage on local TV
Football fans looking to watch Concord High’s semifinal game against Exeter on ConcordTV, the community access channel, are out of luck because of the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association’s (NHIAA) agreement with PlayOn Sports, part of a contract with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
The game will be broadcast online at nfhsnetwork.com/channels/new-hampshire. Cost is $9.95 for one day, or $14.95 for the month.
Because of the NHIAA’s contract with NFHS, local TV stations and public access stations are not allowed to broadcast the games, even on tape delay, leaving the local volunteers who have broadcast Tide home games all season out in the cold.
If you can’t make it to the game and don’t want to dole out $9.95 to watch online, it will be aired on radio on WKXL (103.9 FM/1450 AM), and the Monitor will be tweeting live updates @ConMonitorSport.
