    12 years, $5.2Billion

    That's what broadcasting rights for the NHL are worth in Canada.

    It amounts to a little less than $14.5M/year/team.  After taxes, that might be almost enough to pay Shea Weber.  Between broadcast in Canada, broadcast in the US, and Gamecentre live, eyeballs on screens probably pull in under $30M/year/team.  Yet revenues end up in the $3B annually range?  With only $433M coming from Canadian TV?  I'm guessing gate receipts are just over $1B (avg. league ticket price going into last year was $57, so guessing at an average attendance of 15K for 41 home dates for 30 teams...).

    If you have Cable, Internet and Wireless phone with Rogers, like I do, you can expect your bill to double every 4 to 5 years for the life of this agreement.

    By 2026, when I'll be fully into retirement, God only knows if I'll be able to afford any of it.

    $5.2 BILLION

    Yeah, I bet the owners really hate Bettman.

    His job is clearly in jeopardy.

    Re: 12 years, $5.2Billion


    This deal is absolutely going to hammer TSN and the CBC. CBC gets 50 per cent of its ad revenue from hockey. Though they'll still have HNIC for at least four more years, Rogers gets all the ad revenue. And TSN? Hockey is their raison d'etre - sure they'll still have their specials and their news programs, but no more games? That will be a huge financial blow. Both networks are going to lose a lot of their on-air talent to Rogers as well. As it is TSN will have to fold three of its subsidiary networks - TSNJets, TSNLeafs and TSNMontreal.

    Personally I'm not a fan of Sportsnet but now they're suddeny the big dog in Canada.

    Do you pay for each access separately ? or is it bundled ?

    If I am not hooked up through some free/city wifi, I won't watch highlights or a game through my laptop or my cell phone bill will go bonkers for the streaming.

    Wonder how much the small market teams get in revenue sharing ?

    Curious too how the percentages are broken out.

    I don't know if it will double, but it will certainly go up. These leagues have priced out so many from attending, now theyre going to force you to pay more to watch it.

    Sorry, just saw that TSN will keep the rights for TSNJets and some other regional coverage for the Leafs, Habs and Sens.

    First CBC loses their HNIC theme song and now this.  There was no mention of layoffs for some at CBC.  Would that be on the horizon?

    Rogers just bought themselves a monopoly. They will make all Canadians pay through the nose - just like a good monopolist would.

    They already own the mediums, plus they suckered the CBC for HNIC. 

    Does anyone honestly think they won't gouge?

    HNIC is a tradition i cant live without.  Anything that takes the game away from the true megapower is going to be a sad day.   NBC is an absolute joke to watch.   Sportsnet is painful.  I like TSN but HNIC is the best.  And yes thats even with the current cast.  And yes i hate healey and some of the other morons.  But no one sets the stage like hnic.  Their intros give me goosebumps.  neil young.  Major goosebumps.

    There was on CBC radio this morning, and not just in the sports - they got slapped with 200 million in cuts over the last year and now they just lost 50 per cent of their ad revenue, so yeah there are going to be layoffs and likely massive changes across the entire network.

    And kel, in name HNIC will be around for four more years, but it will be a Rogers production aired on CBC, not a CBC production so expect some changes. And after 4 years? Who knows.

    For people that get NHL Center ice they will all have to switch to Rogers now, unless Rogers sells the packages to subsidiaries like Bell or Telus or Shaw. I don't think this is good for hockey fans in Canada if Rogers holds them hostage as in us or no one. I don't think all hockey fans will switch to Rogers if thats what happens and that is a loss for the NHL. Monopolies are no good for anyone.

    This will certainly drive up the nhl package as rogers will sell off to other major carriers tp provide hockey to non roger subscribers. I have bell and i am certain the the price will double next year or more. One thing this will certainly do is revive the FTA market. This is rediculous that the crtc would even approve of this, I havent seen anythinf from them for a statement yet.

    NBC is fine.  You may dislike the commentators, but it's tough to dismiss one set when the other set is just as bad. Emerick, Olczyk and Maguire aren't that much worse than Healy and Co, and I'll take JR, Keith Jones and Milbury over PJ freakin' Stock.

    At least the camera angles are good.

    Some teams are on Fox networks down here and it's bad.  The lower camera angles make it difficult to watch.

    Who has better hockey knowledge ? Milbury/Roenick Vs Stock/Healy ?

    Hands down Milbury and Roenick all day. HNIC in between periods is a complete joke!

    Totally disagree with you on this point. I have yet to see any US produced hockey broadcast that can compare to CBC. NBC has improved a lot though. HNIC is the gold standard!
