Montreal-Toronto. Saturday night. A full house and millions of TV viewers. What more could a hockey fan want?
How about being able to see the game in 3D?
For viewers in the United States, the NHL Network will be on hand Saturday when the Canadiens come to the Air Canada Centre for the latest renewal of hockey's oldest rivalry. RDS and CBC's Hockey Night in Canada will also air the game, which begins at 7 p.m. ET. The NHL announced Friday that the game will be available in 3D -- the first time the NHL Network has shown a game in 3D in the United States.
Cable and satellite viewers with a 3D-ready television along with 3D glasses will be able to enjoy this next-generation television viewing experience. Viewers should check their local listings for availability of the 3D feed from their provider. The NHL Network will also televise the game throughout the U.S. in standard and high-definition.
The game will be the first-ever 3D broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada, which will present the game in 3D, standard and high-definition in Canada.
Fans in Canada will get a second game when Hockey Night in Canada airs Tampa Bay at Vancouver in the second game of its doubleheader. That game begins at 10 p.m. ET.
