With TSN/CTV's contract for Skate Canada and Canadian Nationals event (8 years remaining, right?), will that mean they will *finally* show all the competitors? I mean, what else are they gonna show? It's not just TSN, but TSN2. They have to fill up their schedule with something.In a blockbuster deal, Rogers Sportsnet has seized control of CBC’s flagship Hockey Night in Canada and the majority of hockey media rights across the country.
The 12-year, $5.2 billion deal, the largest in NHL history, will bring to an end Hockey Night in Canada as we have known it on the CBC for the past 61 years. Rogers, not the CBC, will oversee its every aspect as of the beginning of the next NHL season.
The deal also leaves TSN on the outside looking in.
Not sure how this affects CBC. They still get HNIC (although they will generate no revenue).
