Have you ever had the urge to listen to a radio broadcast of a game while you are attending the game in person? Well, there might be a new technology that will make that possible for all sports arenas.

The Buffalo Sabres announced this month a new partnership with Mixhalo to stream real-time audio to fans in-venue during games. The Sabres will be the first NHL team to adopt Mixhalo’s sound technology, joining teams such as the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and MLS club LAFC.

According to SportTechie, Mixhalo will connect fans to live play-by-play commentary from Sabres commentators, as well as other fan experiences through the company’s free mobile app. The Sabres will also consider using Mixhalo to stream audio commentary from players.

“With this being RJ’s [Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret] last season, we know it’s important for fans at KeyBank Center to hear the calls of our legendary broadcaster during his final season behind the mic, along with all games going forward,” Sabres SVP of marketing and business strategy John Durbin said in a statement.

Mixhalo was co-founded by Mike Einziger, the guitarist for popular 1990s rock band Incubus.

    Capital One arena for years has had an in-arena FM broadcast minus the typical 7-10 second delay. I bought a USB rechargeable FM radio slightly larger than a credit card for less than $20, and use that to listen to John Walton at all home games. I also bring it to away arenas and find many of them do the same.
