Midwest Hockey Television is available, for hire, to broadcast tournaments on weekends that we are not already booked. If you have an inquiry about this service, please fill out the contact form. We will get back to you as soon as possible. There is a small production fee per game, to help cover the costs of fuel, food, labor, etc…
Micah Small, Founder and Production: Micah started MHTV by accident at a pre-season, friendly tournament in Omaha, NE in 2016. He streamed one game from his phone, and the rest from a Canon Professional Broadcast camera he borrowed. The service was so well received by the parents that he decided to keep it going. Since that weekend, it has grown in popularity and he has added several features that offer a professional looking experience to those who can’t travel or make it to the rink. It has now expanded to other tournaments and also different divisions as the crew can get to them. Micah provides all of the broadcasting equipment and the current server that houses MHTV’s website. He also operates the cameras, live scoring, production, post production and the graphics and multimedia design.
Laura Small, Still Photography and Live Scoring: Laura had no choice but to join. She was adopted by MHTV as our digital still photographer because she takes a ton of pictures. She also helps with live scoring occasionally.
Dave Nash, Video Camera Operator and Live Scoring: Dave joined in to help out so that Micah could start in on the play by play commentary that parents had asked for.
Jeff Poppen, Video Camera Operator and Live Scoring: Jeff joined for the same reason as Dave. He joined to help so that the valuable streams could get to where they need to be for family and friends to watch from home, or the road.
Jayden Engel, Live Scoring: Jayden joined up by accident, he was in the right place at the right time and was handed the scoreboard. He loved it so much that he still helps when we need him.
I would like to personally thank everyone who has helped, or donated through our first and most formative year. As it starts to wind down, we are busier than ever with the state tournaments. The support has been overwhelming and we can not say thanks enough.
