NBC Chairman Dick Ebersol will be today’s guest on NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman on NHL.com and SIRIUS XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET. The two will discuss the 10-year television deal that the league signed with NBC earlier this week.
“There is absolutely nothing that fits the NBC Sports Group better on all platforms than the National Hockey League, between the national cable rights, the broadcast rights and the digital rights,” Ebersol said during an NHL conference call yesterday.
NBC will televise 100 regular season games per year, and then (for the time ever) provide fans with national distribution of all Stanley Cup playoff games, including exclusive coverage starting with the conference semifinals.
