All About The New Sportsnet Studio

I am not sure how much of the studio we will see here in the US, but it does look fantastic.

Here's hoping the Center Ice package keeps the Sportsnet studio feed live during intermission instead of the "We will return shortly" message.

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

It’s pricey, it’s flashy, and it’s about to see a ton of action.

With Rogers set to air a mellow 554 National Hockey League games this season — starting with full-slate puck drop on Oct. 8 — all that hockey television needed a new broadcast home.

On Monday, fresh Hockey Night in Canada host George Stroumboulopoulos and the movers and shakers at Sportsnet unveiled a state-of-the-art studio at the CBC building in downtown Toronto.

“I’ve been on a bunch of sets in my life,” Stroumboulopoulos said of the space that will be used seven days a week throughout the hockey season, “and there’s nothing like this.”

Hockey Central’s 11,000 square foot, 360-degree studio allows cameras to shoot at any angle, as up to three live broadcasts can be shot for three or more networks simultaneously. In other words, everything is happening.
