Paying To Watch Hockey Games Online In Canada

from Dan Tencer at The Huffington Post/Canada,

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.
