Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Skyview, an integrated professional sports broadcasting company, has been selected by the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers to serve as the team’s official network provider. The multi-year partnership will provide distribution services and next generation wise satellite receivers across the team’s 17-station radio network. The multi-year partnership aims to increase broadcast reliability and attract affiliates with the cost-effective Skyview platform.
“When we started looking for a new network distribution provider, Skyview was able to provide everything we needed for our affiliates,” said Dave Dombrowski, Cavaliers senior director of broadcast services. "Skyview is tops in radio sports distribution. Their technology is top-notch and we are very excited to partner with them.”
In September 2013, Skyview began deploying its wise satellite receivers across the Cleveland Cavaliers radio network. The receiver technology provides many advantages over previous distribution technology: time shifting broadcasts, copy split-spot insertion (regionalization), record and playback of programming and immediate as-played reporting. With this technology, the Cavaliers will have full disclosure of broadcast quality across its network and have the ability to offer advertisers ad-regionalization (ability to air multiple versions of the same spot simultaneously across the network).
“We feel privileged to provide our distribution services to the Cavaliers,” said Matt Stys, vice president business development of Skyview Networks. “We pride ourselves in providing the most current broadcast technology in the industry and believe the Cavaliers will experience the highest broadcast quality.”
Cleveland Cavaliers radio broadcasts featuring John Michael (play-by-play), Jim Chones (color analyst), Mike Snyder (studio host) and Brad Sellers (studio color analyst) can be heard on flagship station WTAM 1100 and its radio network of 17 stations.

Skyview will broadcast the first network-wide Cleveland Cavaliers preseason game on October 8, 2013 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
