Discussion in 'Arizona Coyotes' started by ClassLessCoyote, Aug 16, 2017.
I'll take any network but NBC as I have noticed we had more Coyotes games shown on ESPN and Fox.
Ended up going with CBS because there's not a reason I can think of to not want it on that network. The other three I can think of at least one.
Is the NHL releasing a new program titled "The NHL to be show"?
Online exclusive direct purchase at a reasonable price.
You never said my want had to be financially viable
Streamed at a reasonable price without blackouts.
I think this is the model you'll see eventually. Online and with TV (pay per view). We saw similar last year with the free streaming games on Twitter.
For now, give me NBC over ESPN2. Be the big fish on NBC rather than the neighbor to darts and horse racing on ESPN2.
I don't really care about Coyotes being played nationally or not. I want the NHL to get better ratings, so that the next TV deal can be more money(unless that bubble has already burst - NBA/MLB/NFL contracts are outrageous). Coyotes aren't going to help assist that. In market we have Fox Sports Arizona, who hopefully will show every game? I know that's been a problem in the past.
I think NBC has done a good job. I like how they have hockey all afternoon on Sunday's after football is done. They do focus on the NE but whatever... In Canada I wish TSN still had national rights, their coverage is so much better. I'm pretty sure they also had more Coyotes games. I remember the Coyotes being featured on quite a few of their Wednesday games, including a couple against non-Canadian teams. Locally I think FSA does a good job. Walsh is annoying, but I do like McConnell on play by play, and I know Nash's color commentary isn't that liked around here but I do like his quirky calls. Gives the local broadcast a unique feel which I like. In the future, it would be amazing if they replaced Walsh with Doan. I think Doan doing interviews would be great, and post game with Doan and Nash would also be great. When they've been on camera together I've always enjoyed it.
More than anything I wish the streaming services they offer (Gamecentre, Center Ice) were better. It's very annoying when a Yotes road game in Dallas is blacked out.
Only vote in the McGinn poll, only voter for CBS so far in this poll. I guess my opinions just suck.
This is okay with me, as the NHL app B/C is generally better/more clear.
In a perfect world, NHL would be on ABC/ESPN and the NBA would be on NBC. If only...
Couple this with seasons off-set by a month.
