Where to watch/listen to #POFW16
The upcoming Elite League Playoff finals weekend to be held at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham is a complete sell out, but there are a number of ways in which you can watch and keep up with all the action.
Premier Sports will be showing both semi-finals live on Saturday and the final on Sunday. The cost is £9.99 for a month's subscription, meaning you will not only get to watch the Playoff finals weekend but you will also be able to see all of Great Britain's games from the upcoming World Championships from 17th to 23rd April, and be able to watch action from the NHL and SHL playoffs.
BBC Coventry and Warwickshire (DAB 94.8FM, 103.7FM and online) will have commentary of the first-semi final as Genting Casino Coventry Blaze take on Cardiff Devils at 1pm on Saturday. If Blaze progress, the final will also be broadcast live. Geoff Foster and Blaze TV's Ed Kimberley will be on commentary.
BBC Radio Nottingham will bring commentary from the second semi-final at 5pm as the Panthers take on Fife Flyers.
We are also delighted to say that our title sponsor, Genting Casino Coventry will be showing both semi-finals and the final in their Casino bar at the Skydome Arena.
On Saturday, there will be much pre and post game coverage so keep an eye on our social media channels and website.
