Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Spectrum Sports has served as the official TV home of UH Athletics since 2011, and we are proud that our coverage has allowed us to engage with Hawaiʻi sports fans for nearly a decade.” said Spectrum Networks Hawaiʻi Senior Director Dan Schmidt. “We recognize the passion this community has for its Rainbow Wahine and Rainbow Warrior student-athletes, and together with the University of Hawaiʻi we’re proud to continue our commitment of delivering live programming and game coverage that Hawaiʻi fans love.”
