If you have the NHL Network, you’re about to see A LOT more live hockey games.¬† Via Kukla’s Korner:
With more live game coverage than ever before, NHL Network today unveiled its U.S. broadcast schedule for the 2008-09 regular season. It includes 75 regular-season games, all in HD.
Highlighting the schedule is the inclusion of CBC’s award-winning Hockey Night In Canada, now available to U.S. fans through NHL Network for the first time. Every Saturday night, NHL Network will not only broadcast the live Hockey Night In Canada double-header, but also the CBC pre-game show Scotiabank Hockey Tonight and post-game show After Hours.
Additional highlights for the 2008-09 NHL broadcast schedule include:
- Live NHL games every Saturday night throughout the season
- 26 double-headers and 1 triple-header
- 17 Wednesday-night games featuring TSN’s broadcast of Wednesday Night Hockey
Though not called out by name, you have to think that the triple-header is CBC’s Hockey Day in Canada.
If you haven’t picked up that HD flat-screen yet, may we suggest a shopping trip this weekend?
