The Islanders had very limited over-the-air television in the 1970s and early '80s as they shared WOR with the Rangers, Knicks and Nets. In their first two seasons, home games were televised by Teleprompter Cable. Cable coverage returned on HBO for the 1975 playoffs and 1975-76 season. Home telecasts went to LI Cable (later renamed SportsChannel) and have remained there since.

The full schedule was not carried on radio until 1978-79. WHN (1972-74) and WMCA (1974-78) carried all home games and most road games, but conflicts with Nets home games prevented some road games from being on radio.
