CBC's (English network) problems as a sports broadcaster...
They apparently have only 3 HD trucks nationwide.
2 are available for hockey
One does the Vancouver/Calgary/Edmonton circuit (tough luck, Winnipeg)
The other one is in the east, usually doing HNIT (Hockey Night In Toronto)
Due to either union or management stupidity, they will
accept a "clean feed" from another broadcaster (not even CBC French) and add their own audio+graphics.
If necessary, they will use their own, or a rented, SDTV truck, and use their own crew
Plus, being a "regular TV network", they can only show one game at a time, and a double-header on Saturday is all they can handle anyways.
