Football season is upon us, and when it comes to high school action, no one has you covered like Tubetown.
On Friday, Tubetown kicks off its 11-game 2018 schedule that features some of the biggest games in the area. Tubetown, a community partnership with Ritter Communications, will cover three games in West Tennessee and eight in Arkansas. This week, the team will carry the Munford-Covington contest from West Tennessee.
“We’ve put together a really exciting schedule that will take us to some of the best rivalries in our coverage area,” Tubetown Producer Marcus Carlton said. “Our viewership continues to grow each year, and we’re looking forward to once again bringing the action to thousands of high school football fans.”
Tubetown’s live streams are available at Facebook.com/TubetownOnline. Following the live streams, the games will air on Tubetown (channel 11 for Ritter Communications cable TV customers in West Tennessee and channel 21 in Northeast Arkansas) at 7 p.m. the following Saturday and Sunday.
“The live streams allow us to take the games to people who couldn’t otherwise view them,” Carlton said. “We’ve heard from parents who are stationed overseas and grandparents who live out of state who are able to watch their favorite athlete despite being hundreds or even thousands of miles away. We love having the ability to bring them the action.”
Tubetown’s Tennessee coverage continues on Aug. 24 when they’ll be at Millington Central-Munford. On Oct. 26, they’ll cover the Brighton-Munford contest.
The Arkansas high school season gets underway Aug. 31, and Tubetown will carry one of Mississippi County’s biggest contests as they cover Osceola at Blytheville. Tubetown’s Arkansas schedule includes teams from Poinsett, Mississippi, Craighead and White Counties. Osceola, Blytheville, Valley View, Jonesboro, Rivercrest, Searcy, Trumann, Nettleton, East Poinsett County and Marked Tree are all on the slate, and the final week has tabbed a “flex” game where Tubetown will pick the top available game.
