When the deal was signed, Rogers agreed to have the first four years of HNiC continue to be broadcast on the CBC (it was recently extended to a fifth year). It's a basic package channel, and it allowed for continuity. And in the early going, you needed a road map to figure out which game was on where, so it was nice to have the CBC constant.

It's not like it's a bad thing for Rogers though. They get to keep all advertising revenue, and it maintains a load of goodwill by keeping an institutional product on a channel everyone is used to than putting it on some random Rogers channel.

Wouldn't be surprised to see CBC buy back into the game and produce a few of their own games soon.

Seems alot more likely than Bell ever getting them again

Nah. CBC is done for hockey. They've had to give up all the internal resources that would allow them to produce hockey games - the cameramen, the producers, hosts, audio - all of that.

Bell/TSN however, continues to produce hockey games. The have the Sens, Jets, and some Leafs games. They put on the World Juniors. When the time comes they could definitely bid again on a hockey package.

This, by the way, if why I think the league was short-sighted when they signed the Rogers deal. They took a lot of money now, but by cutting out CBC it ended them as a bidder in the future.

Cable TV will be dead by the time the next contract comes around so not a big deal.

Rogers is smart to keep the games rolling on CBC, afterall it's a free channel for them since they get all the ad money. Probably make a little more for the ads as well, CBC has a wider audience than any single cable channel can hope for.

As long as there isn't too much whining from cable customers it may never change. However if cable subscribers start voicing displeasure that they could be watching playoff games for free on CBC, not requiring a special cable sports package or even a cable subscription, things may change.

That's why Rogers throws some of these games on SN instead of CBC. They did it with the Sunday night Canadiens-Rangers game already, and also a few Saturday night Canadiens games in the last month. I think they did that with a Saturday night Leafs game too, not 100% sure.

This Saturday night they have the Oilers game on SN, and Sunday night the Leafs game is also on SN. CBC asked Rogers not to put games on their network for the first 4 Sundays of the playoffs so they can show their documentary series We Are Canada.
