From "The Daily Show" to "Hockey Night in Canada," popular shows are disappearing from the online sphere, or going behind subscription walls that only customers of traditional cable and satellite TV will be able to access.
“Cord-cutters who’ve gotten used to watching Hockey Night in Canada streaming on the CBC site for free will be out of luck next season,” writes Terry Dawes at tech news site Cantech Letter. That’s thanks to the $5.2-billion deal between Rogers and the NHL, which gives CBC the right to broadcast HNIC for a few more years, but all the rights and revenues from that and other NHL broadcasts will belong to Rogers.
With the exception of that one Hockey Night per week on CBC, "your only option for watching the games will be to pay Rogers” by paying for its channels on cable, Dawes explains.

Thanks to a tweet from Eric Bonus, you can watch Sportsnet's trade deadline coverage below.
I wasn't getting anything from Sportsnet's site, but this one works.
Watch the TSN stream below, via NHL.com/NHL Network US...
NEW YORK (March 4, 2014) – The NHL’s media platforms will offer fans the most comprehensive coverage of the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline. From now through the 3 p.m. ET deadline on Wednesday, March 5, NHL Network™, NHL.com and NHL Social will provide breaking news, exclusive interviews, insider information and official player transactions during one of the most anticipated dates on the NHL calendar.
I have not seen anything official about NHL Network US coverage of Wednesday's trade deadline day, but looking at their website the schedule for 8:00am - 6:00pm ET is this...
Trade Deadline Day Coverage: Tradecentre
Full day of coverage surrounding the NHL Trade Deadline.
Seeing the word Tradecentre could also tell us it is going to be the TSN coverage.
If I see anything official I will post it as soon as possible.
On this special edition of Coach's Corner, Ron MacLean and Don Cherry discussed the treatment of Roberto Luongo, discussed the Sedin twins, Alex Burrows and some other topics...
Nice to see Don Cherry and Ron MacLean back on North American turf, this time on Vancouver.
A few highlights of tonight's segment, Cherry talked a bit about the Sochi experience and also mentioned the NHL will not be at to Winter Games in South Korea in 2018.
Cherry also discussed the play of Jamie Benn and the Ontario Hockey Assoc. needs to stop taking money from the parents.
Updated: Now with 100% more video!
The CBC's Elliotte Friedman, Ron MacLean and Glenn Healy discussed a slate of trade deadline-related topics in a makeshift Satellite Hotstove segment from Vancouver, and as we wait for the video to post, here's what they had to say, via my attempts to "live-Tweet" the event:
- Why did Pat LaFontaine leave the Sabres? Friedman had three theories:
1. LaFontaine simply wanted to go back to his job in the NHL's front office in NYC;
2. He may have wanted to re-sign Ryan Miller, and clashed with the rest of the management regarding that issue;
3. And he may have wanted to reevaluate Ted Nolan's status against the wishes of the rest of the team's management.
- In the "interesting news" department, Glenn Healy stated that the Edmonton Oilers' new stadium may take a page out of the Bolshoi Arena's score-on-the-roof scoreboard as Oilers president and Hockey Canada advisor Kevin Lowe was inspired by the LED technology, and he brought some know-how back with him to Edmonton;

from Maxx Wolfson of InFocus,
Over the last 39 years, Getty Images staff photographer Bruce Bennett has been at nearly every major event in hockey. Having photographed a total of 33 Stanley Cups and 4,965 games in his distinguished career, there have been very few moments that Bennett has missed. By far, the one game people ask him about most is the famous 1980 “Miracle on Ice” Olympic semi-final between the USSR and the United States.
“In 1980, I was home watching the game in my bedroom,” said Bennett, who grew up in Levittown, New York, about six hours from Lake Placid where the game took place. “I had been shooting hockey for about six years at that point and didn’t even give a thought to covering the Olympics. Huge mistake! Watching the game, I was screaming like an idiot. My parents thought I had been shot.”
Bennett, who is covering the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics as a venue photographer for Getty Images, got his own sort of “redo” by covering the thrilling overtime shootout victory by the United States against host-country Russia on February 15th.
