NHL statement regarding Shaw Communications
The NHL would like to clarify certain inaccurate statements Shaw Communications is making regarding the black-out of NHL games. NHL teams telecast their games in the local market only, and these games are then made available nationally throughout Canada via an out-of-market subscription package called NHL Centre Ice. Other than Shaw Communications, every other major Canadian cable and satellite provider carries NHL Centre Ice allowing its customers to watch virtually every televised NHL game, including their local team's games via the local rightsholder. Shaw Communications consistently has disadvantaged its customers by refusing to make NHL games available through NHL Centre Ice. As soon as Shaw Communications becomes an NHL Centre Ice partner, their customers will receive the full NHL game coverage they want and deserve.
