RDS gets Habs' regional rights - 12 years deal

Announced on Le 5 à 7, 12 years deal

Will broadcast 60 regular season games per season, through 2025.

EDIT : source: http://www.rds.ca/hockey/canadiens/s...0-rds-1.819876

Also interesting to note Bell keeps naming rights on Bell Centre.

RDS et les Canadiens de Montréal sont heureux d’annoncer aujourd’hui qu’ils ont conclu une nouvelle entente de 12 ans sur les droits de diffusion régionale, faisant de RDS le diffuseur officiel des matchs des Canadiens de Montréal jusqu’à la saison 2025-2026. Dans le cadre de cette entente, Bell, la société mère de RDS, conserve les droits d’identité pour le Centre Bell jusqu’en 2028. Les modalités financières du contrat n’ont pas été divulguées.

La nouvelle entente inclut les droits de diffusion pour 60 matchs réguliers ainsi que des matchs préparatoires, chaque saison, dans la région de diffusion désignée de l’équipe.

Very bad deal then for tva. They only get 22 games for habs. Habs games are worth much much more.

A lot of ppl will avoid subscribing to tvas because they'll find other ways to watch instead of paying for an extra channel.

For most Quebecors explain national games and regional games.Example would tva pay that amount to rogers to show a Edmonton vs Vancouver national game I think not

Glad to see RDS will still present 60 matches for the Habs!

Regional... I'm assuming it means that it will be blacked-out outside Quebec? If that's the case, I'll have to cancel that channel.

Well 60 of the games were always technically regional so it will be interesting to see if it changes.

Unfortunately, I guess I'll be watching in English then unless TVA really wows me and hires some talent. Not listening to their current play by play duo. Nuh-uh.

I don't know what's up with Pierre Houde's contract. I'd GUESS it was set to expire after this year since that's when the Habs' deal expired and he still hasn't reupped with Bell. I mean, if he is a pending UFA it would be VERY likely he does stay with RDS but who knows for certain, he may follow the national TV package since those are the glamour games.

Great news for RDS.

Will be a bit weird to switch to TVA when the playoffs roll around though..

... On Sportsnet? That's... not much of an improvement over TVA, and has to be suscribed.

EDIT : Duh... CBC.

It's not certain that it will be CBC, will be up to Rogers where it airs.

CBC signed HNIC for 4 years.

They made an agreement with Rogers but Rogers runs HNIC on CBC and basically dictates what games they get. It's very possible they put the Canadiens on Sportsnet, also possible they put them on CBC at this point.

Bell retains naming rights to Bell Centre through 2028 as well.

Same here. No way I'll listen to Langevin and Pednault
