from Susan Krashinsky of the Globe and Mail,
Rogers Communications Inc. is getting more ice time.
The company will announce on Friday that it will make Toronto Maple Leafs games available on the Web to its digital cable subscribers, who can get access to the Rogers on Demand Online platform….
Last March, it began offering a handful of Leafs games from the team’s own cable channel, Leafs TV, on the Web. Now, regular season Leafs games that Rogers broadcasts on its Sportsnet cable channel will be streamed live online for a broader range of subscribers. Rogers had to negotiate with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. (MLSE) for extra digital rights, and is now attempting to do the same with competing networks, such as TSN, which have the rights to the remaining Leafs games, and other sports content. The Leafs content does not include mobile, for now.
