The remaining Thunder games are expected to air on an Oklahoma City over-the-air station, but a deal has not been announced. “Our fans will be able to watch every Thunder basketball game on television, home and away,” said Ken Adelson, Thunder senior vice president and executive producer. FS Oklahoma will launch with the first Thunder telecast in October and will be available statewide as a replacement for FSN Southwest. The date of the launch has not been set. FS Oklahoma will air “Thunder Live” pregame and postgame shows, which will be anchored from a studio in Dallas, and a weekly magazine show, network spokesman Ramon Alvarez said. Game broadcasts will be branded “FS Thunder” for its on-screen graphics. FS Oklahoma will reach more than 1 million cable and satellite television homes, covering every TV market in Oklahoma. “Fox Sports is the leader in regional sports television and we are proud and excited to partner with them,” Adelson said. “They are innovative, creative and offer state-of-the-art production techniques. We have attained our goal of offering our fans a high quality, exciting, easily accessible TV broadcast.” More than half of FS Oklahoma’s Thunder telecasts will be available in HD.
