The Next TV Contract For The NHL

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

The NHL officially awarded a team to Seattle on Tuesday, and the move into a top 20 television market, starting in 2021, will coincide with a new American TV deal and perhaps a sharp rise in the cap.

The cap has risen every year while NBC coughs up $200 million (U.S.) annually on average to hockey-related revenue. That deal ends after the 2020-21 season, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said.

In a new deal, the NHL could easily double that money, if not more, independent media consultant Brad Adgate said.

“It’s going up,” Adgate said. “If you look at what’s happening in media the last decade — so many sports networks, streaming video. Amazon is poking around. Facebook made a bid for cricket.

“If you look at the NBA, they tripled (their TV revenue). It’s reasonable to believe the NHL goes from $200 million to $500 million a year.”

Morning Line- Fluto Shinzawa

Shifts in technology and viewing habits have made the viewer an active participant. You don’t just watch a hockey game. You consume it by clicking, swiping, maximizing, minimizing, optimizing, commenting, and tweeting your way through three periods, overtime, and shootout, engaging not just with the game, but with other members of your hockey-crazed community.

The future will be all this on steroids.

Honor The Hockey Host

from John Shannon of Sportsnet,

For the past few decades, the Hockey Hall of Fame has recognized the work of great broadcasters through the Foster Hewitt Award. Many quality broadcasters have been recipients including Danny Gallivan, Rene Lecavalier, Bob Cole, Mike Emrick, John Davidson, Sam Rosen and this year’s winner, Joe Bowen. Many others are deserving of this recognition. However, under the award’s current criteria, Hodge and MacLean are not eligible to win the award. Through some rather illogical decision, the award can only go to broadcasters who have been in the broadcast booth. Play-by-play people or colour analysts. No hosts.

But something should change because the business has changed. The complexity of the hockey broadcasting business has changed, and people like Hodge and MacLean should be recognized for their contributions to the business. There are others, like Don Cherry and Howie Meeker, who under the current rules, cannot win the Hewitt Award. That really is a shame. And again, something has to change.
