NHL signs 12-year TV, Internet deal with Rogers | 22 Habs Games on TVA/TVA Sport
 
http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...332/story.html

According to the network’s hockey insider Bob McKenzie, when the NHL announces its new Canadian television contracts on Tuesday, TSN won’t be part of the picture. The league instead has signed on with CBC and Rogers-owned Sportsnet in a landmark 12-year agreement that freezes the country’s largest sports specialty network out as an NHL rightsholder for more than a decade.

Why there would be no more Habs games on RDS because of this deal? Could you explain that to me?:help:

shutehinside 11-26-2013 06:09 AM

Rds will still be around just won't broadcast NHL games.

Rickkins 11-26-2013 06:10 AM

RDS owned by TSN....

Price My Man Crush 11-26-2013 06:10 AM

and owned by ESPN.

NHL ‏@NHL 47 s

Rogers selected CBC/TVA sub-licensing deals for Hockey Night in Canada (English) & national French-language multimedia rights, respectively.

Rds is owned by tsn which is owned by bell. Bell lost the bid to rogers which owns sportsmet.

They are loosing the national rights. Still, they can have the exclusive rights from certain NHL teams. Per exemple, they have exclusive rights for the Jets (till 2021). And RDS have Habs rights (till 2014).

TVA Sports will now possess the rights for Draft/Trade/Other teams/Playoffs.

Still its not an effective change that take place now, Tsn/Rds will finish the season.

shutehinside 11-26-2013 06:12 AM

Habs will be on tsn regional until 2021 which is 30 games a year.

Rickkins 11-26-2013 06:14 AM

What I liked about RDS is that they had ALL the Habs games on.

beaverBFP 11-26-2013 06:15 AM

They have the exclusive english rights, so RDS is still good?

@TSNBobMcKenzie
Official announcement expected Tuesday by NHL: CBC and Rogers have exclusive English-language NHL rights deal. Believed to be 12 year deal.

IceDaddy 11-26-2013 06:15 AM

and we all made fun of Renault Lavoie for going to TVA.....

Beatnik 11-26-2013 06:16 AM

TVA Sport will have a minimum of 22 regular season Habs games + all the playoffs.

Crap... so we're gonna lose some games.... back to the freakin dark ages...

shutehinside 11-26-2013 06:21 AM

This could be a good thing as long as sportsnet gets much better production quality and announcers.

They have more regional channels, so barring blackouts, you might be able to watch several games on the same night.

Captain Saku 11-26-2013 06:21 AM

Habs on TVAS is a huge step backward :facepalm:

All games will still be on TV, just not all on RDS.

beaverBFP 11-26-2013 06:23 AM

Milhouse40 11-26-2013 06:25 AM

I would really hope so. I don't get to watch them all, but it's great to always know that when the stars align, the game is available...

Milhouse40 11-26-2013 06:26 AM

Smokey Thompson 11-26-2013 06:26 AM

Is this real life

SnapVirus 11-26-2013 06:28 AM

TVA Sports can show 22 games at least. But it is sure, that they will show them all. They are not crazy.

Renaud Lavoie, got pretty good connections :)
