We need similar news article from Yaroslavl, I can't stomach that blur of a game we are forced to watch. Their team deserves better.

Do the announcers on KHL TV announce from a studio or are they at the games? I don't speak Russian, but it seems like they are always from a studio. I like it when I can find streams from the local channels who have the announcers at the game. It makes it sound more exciting.

Magnitogorsk has got it, Chelyabinsk will likely get. Heard nothing about the rest.

I was referring to SM-liiga(Nelonen), national team(MTV3) and NHL(Viasat) all being on different networks. Potentially meaning that people would be forced to buy several channel packages (again!), if they want to view all three.

Well KHL has not been broadcasted for sometime in the swedish version of viasat. They tried it some years ago but decided to drop it because interest was extremely low and focused more on Swedish 2nd divison instead. Not sure if they picked it up again but I have not heard anything like it. I wouldn't mind if they picked it up again though. More hockey to watch.

Maybe when there are more Western teams they show KHL again. It's easier to identify for the general public in Sweden with teams of neighbouring countries than with teams that are just playing in Khabarovsk or Omsk I could imagine.

Same in Finland.

The whole pay channel system in Finland is a big mess.

It is faaar future, maybe does not happen ever. I can imagine that KHL and its euro broadcasters (SportTV, Viasat) will create big channel, like NHL Networks, to broadcast in Europe. For example Viasat Hockey Finland can become KHL Network Scandinavia or so. This to happen, you need strong euro broadcasters, which Viasat seems to be.

I thought america was a free country. How can nhl not allow that? If there's no stopping RT, I can't see what can go wrong for KHL TV, not talking about ratings right now, or profitability of such channel. NHL is pretty negligible in the US to actually influence such things.

Well there's such thing as Media Propaganda, just how baseball and football in America stay on top. Every day every single sports radio-station will discredit other sports (as meaningless, nobody cares about them, boring, unwatchable, etc) and hypes up the MLB/NFL. Same way will the NHL put forth a media campaign against the KHL. And KHL is self-destructive as is, there was a KHL Chanel in DR last spring, people from Europe actually tried watching it, but the quality was atrocious. Also some people say the finnish and swedish fans only care about their teams and rivalries, well American fans don't even know all the players on their team, needless to talk about the team they are playing against.

KHL on North American TV?

I watched several KHL and German league games on the web during the NHL lockout. Even after the NHL returned, I still watched the KHL and followed it. I enjoyed it and thought it was good, entertaining hockey. I like the big ice, because it puts more emphasis on skating and playmaking. Anyway, the web is ok, but I wish some north American cable or dish network channels would carry KHL games. Comcast has news and other stations from many countries including Russian stations, so I'm hoping that eventually those stations may broadcast the KHL. Has anyone heard of this as a possibility in the future?

I live in the US. Those leagues have no control over what other stations put on their stations. NFL is #1 yet we have stations to watch Arena Football or even more comparison to this argument, Canadian Football League.

NBA TV shows European basketball sometimes.


ESPN has a contract with the KHL but broadcasts games only on ESPN3. We will not get a channel here because the US has low interest in hockey anywhere but its home market. New York hockey fans dont care about New Jersey fans, let alone teams in Boston or LA and especially in another country and worse another league.

It will have low ratings.

The best I can see is if in 2 years the KHL becomes the United Hockey League as they are planning to do. And everything goes as planned then maybe they showcase a Champions League game on TV. NHLN or NBC sports or something

I live in US as well, just listen to the radio stations that are not endorsed by NHL...For example we have two major sports radio station in boston, and one of them endorsed the bruins, the other sox - so the sox one constantly discredits hockey and brushes off soccer. Dare you think, why? America is like no other country driven by media, my friend.

That 10 year deal with the Red Sox probably has something to do with it...
