So, SelecTV was seen in other markets, hmm? In L.A., this subscription TV service was carried over KWHY Channel 22 during the PM hours and weekends.

This early Chicago Blackhawks sports special is a fascinating look into one of Chicago's favorite sports franchises before the advent of 24/7 cable sports networks and the Blackhawks own Blackhawks TV on the internet.
