CBC and TSN announce NHL Schedules for 2008-09
The CBC announced yesterday it will kick off its 69 game NHL broadcast schedule on October 4th with games from the Czech Republic and Sweden. Meanwhile TSN announced its 70-game package, all of which will be available in high definition (HD), gets underway on October 14th.
Link contains listing of all games on both CBC and TSN.
TSN indicated that all games would be HD.
So TSN won't be showing any Versus games involving American teams like they have the past few years? That's too bad. I guess they want to get the hard core fans to pony up for Centre Ice and NHL Network if they want to watch those Crosby-Ovechkin matchups.
Being a Penguins fan im very upset. 1 Penguins game on TSN are you kidding me? You dont even have to be a Pens fan to be upset about this. Its horrible. Atleast CBC has around 10-11 I forget.
TSN2 will air 2 NHL games ,involving American teams, per week.
guess they want to get the hard core fans to pony up for Centre Ice
what does TSN have to do with Center Ice. TSN gets paid no $$$ if people sub to Center Ice.
As well, NHL Network will air 40 games.
Ring: I think poster was thinking that if TSN had a ton of games it might hurt # of subs to NHLCI. "They" in the post isn't TSN, it is the NHL. "They (NHL) want hardcore fans to pony up for NHLCI" is probably what the poster meant.
Yea if you subscribe to TSN2 and NHL Network you should get about 90 games involving only American teams. With Star Choice and Bell you should also be able to get the two for $2.99 as part of the pick 2 bundle. Good deal for any hockey fan.

41 Maple Leafs games on national English language TV. That is half of their games. Can you imagine if half of all Yankees games were on ESPN, Fox or TBS; or half of all Lakers games were on TNT, ABC or ESPN?
I bet Sportsnet regrets selling TSN that 7 game package, or whatever it was, now they don't have NBA rights.
so 41 (CBC and TSN) + 28 (Rogers Sportsnet) = 69 GAMES + 13 Games on LEAFS TV = 82 GAMES REGULAR SEASON GAMES ... Plus 9 Pre-Season Games on LEAFS TV = 91 TOTAL GAMES THIS SEASON FOR THE LEAFS ON TV, WOW!!!
Teams like Florida, Tampa, Columbus, Phoenix, etc wish they had all their games televised on TV like some, lol.
SNET and TSN will have one Leafs preseason game each.
One thing missing from these announcements. Which games will be in HD? (or did I miss it?).
ReidW: I believe only CBC and TSN will be airing games in HD (this includes TSN2). Or at least those are the only HD channels carrying hockey games in my area.
Does anyone know if Leafs TV (NHL Centre Ice) is planning on getting an HD feed to us outside of Toronto? Even if its just to change the format (like cheapo Global has done recently) it would be an improvement. Then I might consider signing up for it again.
I just joined this forum. I have used it countless times for info. Great site so I decided to join and see if I could chime in with some help now and then.
Hugh...thanks for the Broadcast schedules.
GO LEAFS GO
Sportsnet should air some games in HD. NBC will air all of their games in HD as well.
CBC should do two games a week in HD, maybe even three. Whatever game is the national early game, as well as the national late game. As for TSN in their press release they said all games will be in HD thus year.
That's awesome that all the games will be in HD on TSN this season. I can't wait to watch the Maple Leafs in HD!!!
