STAMFORD, Conn. – January 2, 2019 – NBC Sports’ presentation of the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic ® (1-4:30 p.m. ET) across NBC, NBC Sports.com, and the NBC Sports app averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of nearly three million viewers (2.968 million), making it the most-watched Winter Classic in four years and up 20% compared to last year’s game, according to Fast National Data from Nielsen, and digital data from Adobe Analytics.

This year’s game was played at Notre Dame Stadium, home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, with the Boston Bruins defeating the host Chicago Blackhawks, 4-2. The sellout crowd of 76,126 was the second-largest ever to attend an NHL game.

NHL Broadcasting Predictions For 2019

from John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal,

Fox will buy back the RSNs.

It seems obvious that Fox will wind up buying back its regional sports networks from Disney at a discount. Bidders have shied away, based in part on uncertainty in the RSN market from distribution (the Fox RSN carriage deals with three large distributors expire over the next two years) to digital (some deep-pocketed digital companies are scared by the fact that streaming rights are separate from linear TV rights). Plus, logistics are a problem:...

The NHL will split up its rights package.

The NHL’s media rights deal with NBC doesn’t expire until 2021 but look for the league to begin setting the table for the coming negotiations by pushing for new packages split among two or more networks. It’s too early to handicap who will get the package — that’s a prediction for next year’s column. But I expect NBC to have the biggest rights package that includes the Stanley Cup Final. Fox will be at the table, looking for prime-time content on its broadcast channel. ESPN has made it known that it wants to cut a deal. And Turner will be pitching a combined linear TV-streaming option with its cable channels and B/R Live. If I have to guess, I’d say that ESPN winds up with a second package of games for both linear TV and ESPN+.

Thoughts With Rick Jeanneret

from Mike Harington of the Buffalo News,

Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret was removed from the KeyBank Center press box on a stretcher during the third period of the team's game Saturday night.

There was no immediate word on his condition.

Jeanneret, 76, was reportedly feeling light-headed on the air and stopped talking during the broadcast of the game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The broadcast continued with Rob Ray briefly calling play-by-play from between the benches before intermission host Brian Duff moved to the press box to continue to call the action.
