EXCLUSIVE SHARKS RADIO COVERAGE CAN SYNCH WITH TV
With all television coverage going national with NBC Sports Network and NBC from this point forward, many people in Northern California will look to San Jose Sharks Radio Network coverage for a local broadcast.
Fans will be able to tune in to flagship station KFOX at 98.5 or 102.1 FM for every minute of action. In communities ranging from Eureka to Fresno, the multi-station San Jose Sharks Radio Network will also be there for you. You can find an affiliate station and local schedule in your area by going to www.sjsharksradio.net.
With all television going to NBC and NBC Sports Network from here on in, many fans have found that they’d like to tune in to the radio for the local broadcast and watch games at the same time, as they do in the regular season when games are exclusively national. However, with the digital and satellite delivery platforms that each medium has, there is usually a delay between what you hear on the radio and what you see on television.
Well, there is a way to synch up what you hear on the radio and what you see on TV. Many of our listeners have done so during the season, but with the Conference Semi-Finals about to start, more people will want to know just how to do so.
Let us count the ways:
- If you are listening to the game on a regular radio, it is likely that you’ll hear what happens on the ice before you see it on TV. There are several methods of delaying the radio, including a product available at www.sportsyncradio.com or www.fansyncradio.com. Another way is through freeware from http://www.daansystems.com/radiodelay/.
- If you are listening to the internet stream or on a mobile device using sjsharks.com, kfox.com, the KFOX app, or an app such as TuneIn Radio, and putting it over your stereo speakers, the internet stream is normally about 30 seconds behind the action you see on TV. Using your DVR, you can pause the live TV until it synchs up with the radio.

We really appreciate the fact that our loyal listeners on KFOX 98.5/102.1 FM and our Sharks Radio Network station list tune in each and every game, and we welcome all of the additional listeners who tune in while watching the national telecast. Thanks for being there with us!
