HEATv on HEAT.com

MIAMI - On the heels of their successful HEATVonHEAT.com online programming experience during both the 2011 and 2012 White Hot Playoffs, the Miami HEAT and broadcast partner Sun Sports are once again teaming up to bring fans unparalleled coverage of their team for every remaining playoff game beginning with Monday’s opening contest of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series vs. the Chicago Bulls.

All games televised in the Eastern Conference Semifinals are exclusive national telecasts, however, the team's award-winning broadcasting unit will produce HEATVonHEAT.com, a series of live webcasts before and after each game. For every game, fans can tune in for a one hour pre-game show on HEAT.com. Following each game, Sun Sports and HEAT.com combine to offer the most comprehensive coverage of the HEAT available with extensive post-game coverage from the Biscayne Bayside Studios and live from the site. Jason Jackson, Eric Reid, Tony Fiorentino and reporters Kristen Hewitt and Johanna Gomez will anchor the efforts.

The HEAT Live post-game shows will air live on HEAT.com and in most cases will air live on Sun Sports, although in some cases they may be tape delayed due to other live event programming commitments on the network. The vast majority of the HEAT Live post-game shows will also enjoy additional airings the following day at 8:30 a.m. and again at noon on Sun Sports. Fans are encouraged to check their local listings or FoxSportsFlorida.com for a complete schedule of broadcast times.

The complete schedule for the Eastern Conference Semifinals, as well as times for the pre-game programming, is listed below. Additional broadcast information will be available on HEAT.com, WhiteHotHEAT.com and Foxsportsflorida.com throughout the series and the remainder of the 2013 White Hot HEAT Playoffs.
