Flames Pay-Per-View Schedule
“With such a tremendous fan base for the Calgary Flames, we are pleased to be able to offer even more coverage of Flames games to our fans,” said Flames Vice-President of Marketing & Advertising, Jim Bagshaw. “Our thirteen game pay-per-view package provides fans with the chance to see featured games versus Eastern conference teams like Montreal, Boston and Ottawa, as well as some key divisional games.”
Flames pay-per-view broadcasts will bring the fan closer to the team through unique and non-traditional behind the scene access. The broadcast team will provide in-depth analysis on the team and the NHL while introducing the Flames to the fan on a more personal level.
Joining Roger Millions in the broadcast booth for all Flames Pay-per-view games this season will be colour commentator Charlie Simmer, former NHL great and famed member of the “Triple Crown” line.
To catch all the Flames action, customers must have a Shaw Digital Terminal available for purchase through Shaw retail centres or local retailers. Rental options are also available.
