MPBN/PBS Kids channel to air state championship basketball games

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network will be using the PBS Kids Channel to televise some of the state schoolboy and schoolgirl state championship games this weekend along with its primary MPBN network.

Charles Beck, the vice president for radio and TV content at MPBN, said the two Friday games will be rebroadcast on Saturday and the eight Saturday finals will be rebroadcast on Sunday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The games will be flip-flopped so that the games that were shown live on one network will be rebroadcast the next day on the other network.

For example, the Class AA boys state title game between South Portland and Portland will be televised live on the PBS Kids Channel on Saturday at 9 p.m. and the Sunday rebroadcast will be aired on MPBN at 2 p.m. ... all-games/
