MSG seals deal to broadcast select KHL games

From earlier:

Quote:
New York Daily News

The NHL lockout will not keep MSG from televising live professional hockey.

The network sealed an agreement with the Kontinental Hockey League to televise two KHL games in the next week that will feature Rangers top-pair defenseman Ryan McDonagh and Devils star forward Ilya Kovalchuk, among several other NHL players overseas during the work stoppage.

I'm absolutely not going to watch, but it's possible that they get some good ratings due to the massive Russian population here.

Doubtful. Did ESPN release the ratings they got for the game they put on ESPN2?

I don't see the interest in the KHL? Just nothing special IMO.

I know, but I don't want to support the players by watching.

I rather just wait until the weekends and watch college hockey.

You'd be supporting MSG.

True, but MSG is pretty much supporting the players since they just want the lockout to end.

Yep. I think it's pretty clear that he wants the season to start already. The only thing this lockout does for MSG is that it hurts them. They are getting absolutely nothing out of it, except a massive loss in ticket and advertising revenues.

I feel that if I watch the KHL, I'm supporting the players. I am against NHL players *****ing about their current situation, and then they just go to another league and take other players' jobs. It's not right.

Some questions on this initiative:

1-Is it helping to give exposure to and market a rival league?
2-Will it help this rival league to get more money from sponsors?
3-Is it financing in any way this rival league?
4-Will it indirectly fund locked out players?
5-Will it attract more locked out players to a rival league?
etc, etc...

1. Yes. MSG isn't exactly OLN when it got started...
2. Not sure. Sponsors want eyeballs in the market where they sell things.
3. Some money may trickle back through rights fees, but if it's just a limited number of games, that may not be that much.
4. Same as 3.
5. It adds legitimacy to another league.

The first game will feature, among others: McDonagh, Kovalchuk, Hedman, E. Kane, Pavelski, Rinne, etc... Will it help the growth of the other league when hockey fans in NY become aware there are more and more top NHLers playing on certain teams? How many of those fans would have even bothered finding out without this initiative?

ESPN2 is in more homes than MSG and ESPN2 only managed a 0.1 showing a KHL game. They won't get big viewers in the US, Time delay plus pretty boring hockey isn't really what the american audience would go for

The American audience often doesn't go for NHL hockey......

Even Florida, who was last in the league in tv ratings, doubled ESPN's numbers.

This doesn't look nearly as good as you seem to indicate.

The other is a broadcast of a foreign league with maybe a player or two recognizable to some fans, at its inception.


(In reality, the levels are so low for both, that they're probably insignificant, statistically speaking.)
