NHL statement regarding Shaw Communications

by Staff Writer / Vancouver Canucks
The NHL would like to clarify certain inaccurate statements ShawCommunications is making regarding the black-out of NHL games. NHL teamstelecast their games in the local market only, and these games are thenmade available nationally throughout Canada via an out-of-marketsubscription package called NHL Centre Ice. Other than ShawCommunications, every other major Canadian cable and satellite providercarries NHL Centre Ice allowing its customers to watch virtually everytelevised NHL game, including their local team's games via the localrightsholder. Shaw Communications consistently has disadvantaged itscustomers by refusing to make NHL games available through NHL Centre Ice.As soon as Shaw Communications becomes an NHL Centre Ice partner, theircustomers will receive the full NHL game coverage they want and deserve.
