    Comcast would televise 2 times a week on those nites Comcast would retain exclusivity in US markets as the only game available on TV at that time.
    The NHL would retain the right to exit the agreement at the end of the 2 years. The right is contingent upon Comcast's fulfilling certain responsibilities related to advertising-revenue growth and reaching a specific number of homes.
    If the league opts to stay then Comcast has a 1 year option,followed by a 3 year option.
    An underteermined number of games would be broadcast in HIGH-DEFINITION TV.
    OLN ia available in about 61 million homes,compared to70 million for ESPN2 and 80 million for ESPN,BUT the new programming should help OLN expand its reach.

    So we can't get the local game on the nights Comcast broadcast their games? That bites. Will that include center-ice?
