Football Schedule ’22 Highlights

Share This Post

We are closing in on the start of another school year and a busy 10-month stretch of high school sports productions coming up on the Astound TV Network.

We are also wrapping up a successful summer broadcast campaign.

First up…a look ahead.

Our first high school broadcast of the new season will be on Friday, August 26, with a doubleheader featuring four teams that competed in last year’s District XI playoffs–Freedom, Emmaus, Easton and Parkland.

We also will post our scholastic football schedule here on our website very soon.  I firmly believe ATVN customers will be pleasantly satisfied with a number of key elements for our slate this fall.

Some of our highlights include:

  • A significant increase in the number of Colonial League games
  • More Northampton regular season football games this regular season
  • A bigger variety of teams on our schedule than any other year
  • While the pre-season “teams to beat” appears to be Emmaus, Parkland, Nazareth and Freedom (our full “polls” will be released next week here on this blog and on our Thursday “SportsTalk” show), we still have 11 other teams in our coverage area on our schedule at least twice
  • All of the “large school” EPC-South teams are scheduled to be on at least three times (most will be on at least four times)
  • More live games than any other season in our network’s history

As always, there are still a variety of factors that may affect our schedule.  A good number of those reasons could be completely out of our control, which is why it will be important to bookmark our programming schedule pages and keep checking back to our website throughout the season to stay up-to-date with our sports programming on the Astound TV Network.

We’ll have more on the upcoming high school football season, along with continuing our month-long interviews with local non-football sports as teams prepare for the upcoming fall season, this Thursday at 7pm on ATVN.



As we turn the page to the fall, we take our final look back at a very fun and busy summer season on our network.
