Quote:

The Predators and television broadcast partner FOX Sports Tennessee, along with sister station SportSouth, have agreed to a new four-year deal.

During the 2010-11 regular season, 60 games will be broadcast. In the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons, 65 regular season games will be broadcast. In 2013-14, 70 regular season games will be broadcast.

Officials said the goal is to broadcast a minimum of 45 games in high definition, with increases following each season.

“We had two primary goals as we entered negotiations for this new broadcast deal,” said Predators Executive Vice President Chris Parker. “We wanted to increase the number of games and we also wanted to increase the rights fee paid to the Predators for those games. We are excited to say that we accomplished both goals.”

NASHVILLE PREDATORS, FOX SPORTS TENNESSEE AND SPORTSOUTH ANNOUNCE FOUR-YEAR BROADCAST DEAL


Nashville, Tenn. (July 7, 2010) – The National Hockey League’s Nashville Predators, the team’s television broadcast partner FOX Sports Tennessee and its sister station SportSouth announced today a new four-year broadcast deal that will see the networks televise 60 Nashville Predators regular-season games this season (2010-11), 65 regular-season games during years two (2011-12) and three (2012-13) and 70 games in the fourth year (2013-14) of the deal. The goal in year one of the agreement is to broadcast a minimum of 45 games in high definition, with increases each year thereafter.

“We had two primary goals as we entered negotiations for this new broadcast deal,” Nashville Predators Executive Vice President Chris Parker said. “We wanted to increase the number of games and we also wanted to increase the rights fee paid to the Predators for those games. We are excited to say that we accomplished both goals. For the first time in franchise history we will broadcast more than 55 games in a regular season, starting with 60 this year and up to 70 in the final year of the deal. Additionally, we increased our overall rights fee substantially. FOX has been a tremendous partner since Day One and they continue to see increased value in the Predators, their fans and the NHL as a broadcast product.”

Sixty Predators games will be broadcast between FOX Sports Tennessee and SportSouth this season, reaching cable and satellite households across Tennessee, Kentucky and northern portions of Alabama and Mississippi. Additionally, the Predators deal was an integral component in helping FOX Sports Tennessee get SportSouth added to the channel lineup on Comcast Cable in Nashville.

Well I'm glad to see the number of games is increasing. Due to my rabid fandom I've been buying Center Ice for the remaining games and making it up to myself by watching random other teams. Headed in the right direction at least.

has the versus sked come out yet?

So, what will the split between FS South and SportSouth be? My cable system does not have SportSouth ... and I highly doubt they will be adding it. So, this could mean fewer games for me.

Awesome!

Excellent news that they've added more games. At least 45 in HD rocks!
