We should maybe talk specifics, Ryker. The situation may vary from club to club. As you know, there's the distinction between a "base package" of TV channels, and "premium TV channels". When you talk about, say, Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts, Don Cherry et al, those kind of games are broadcast on regular "base package" TV channels, right? It's certainly proper to call that "hockey for free", because you would have subscribed to the "base package" anyway, right? Otherwise, why own a TV set?

And now take Slovakia, a country with significantly lower average incomes compared to the US and Canada, and none of Slovan's games in the KHL are available on a "base package" TV channel. It's either premium channel or premium TV package, and even after you buy that, some Slovan games aren't broadcast at all.
