TSN loses NHL; Big opportunity for NBLC?

Post by JJSA on Tue Nov 26, 2013 4:31 am

In a shocking turn of events, TSN has lost the rights to the NHL beginning next season. CBC and Sportsnet are expected to announce on Tuesday that they have secured broadcast rights to the NHL in the form of a 12 year contract. No question this will shake up the entire Canadian sports broadcasting landscape (and could bold very well for the CFL, as they are now without a doubt the big boys on TSN:cheers:)

This could also be a MASSIVE opportunity for the NBLC and might give them the chance to get their foot in the door to a national TV audience by making a big time splash on TSN, who will no doubt be reshuffling their lineup and bringing it tons of new programming. Of course the NBLC would be a tiny part of their new lineup, but being on TSN (or TSN 2) in any form would be absolutely massive for the NBLC.

I 3rd that idea but for now TSN is looking to fill the NHL deal with regional rights for Canadian NHL team and have a few new and old ones in place.

It seems like several team have games broadcasts on their areas Rogers TV Network.
Sportsnet 360 is looking for more Canadian sports Content and with their Rogers TV in place for several teams it would be of little cost to have them place those Boadcast on SN360 or could even have some on SportsnetOntario and SNEast.
Showing at least one game of the week would be a start.

Similar to what they do with CHL Junior Hockey on Friday nights. As long as they would have a Broacast team on RogersTV they could place it on any of their Regional or National Networks.

Rogers already brodcast NASL Canadian club games on SN360 NBL should be along the lines of the NASL.

Just a thought

The league is going to have to be much more proactive in their approach if there is to be any realistic chance at seeing NBLC on national TV next season.

Most definitely that is the case First finding a local network to braodcast games and have other sports on the Network in which to Promote the NBL games during other events.

London Rogers TV is fully engaged in sports at the University, Junior Hockey, and NBL. Also with games at Budweiser gardens. Budweisr Gardens as well as WFCU center in Windsor and Hamiltons First Ontario centre in Hamilton are all run now by Global spectrum.
With Global Spectrum managing all thre of the Arenas they will have a tie in to Global spectrum.
Global Spectrum may aggressivly go after one of the GTA teams IMHO.
I am not sure if Windsor has a Network to promote or broadcast their games but a team in Hamilton will very similar to what London has with RogerTV Hamilton's Cable provider covers Ottawa sports just as strongly.
Ottawa does not have a TV Broadcaster yet but all signs would poin to Rogers TV Ottawa.
EastLink also have big coverage of Halifax sports.
In an Article Ottawa owners are pleased what is going on so far with over 2K for weekend games but half that for weeknight games. Also the move out of the Canadian Tire Center and back to the new refurbished old civis center should be for better attendance.
I could see once Ottawa is there and join RogersTV ottawa broadcast as well as the arena with the 67's culd see them being as good as London.
The same with Hamilton with the AHL Bulldogs sharing the Arena and both being on Hamilton cable network.
Aside from Halifax the other Atlantic teams need to be more aggresive
It can work with such profesional oufits like Global Spectrum, RogersTV cable netwrk, OSEG running the arena in Ottawa and joining the 67's as a high profile sports programing.

IMHO their is tons of potential and I can see it working filling the gaps in Ontario outside the GTA

Just to be clear, I don't believe Windsor is broadcasting their games.
