For the first time ever, all 82 of the Habs games will be broadcast regionally in English. Sportsnet, CBC, CityTV and FXCanada will carry the load to provide the entire season. With all of these TV contracts, I think the Habs could sell $10 seats and still turn a profit!

My worker is telling me 60 Habs games will be televised on RDS and the other 22 on TVA. Others are telling me more than half are blacked out in the Ottawa region. What's the truth if someone doesn't mind helping out

the 60-22 split is accurate. but i believe that's regional. SO people living in quebec having rds and tva wont miss a single game, is what i presume. Idk what the deal is with ontatio and other provinces.

That is the FRENCH regional broadcast rights.
ENGLISH regional broadcast rights goes to Sportsnet, CityTV, FX Canada and something else owned by Rogers.

I believe anyone East of Belleville is up shit creek. I am in Alberta and I will watch every game... for free. I even have a computer dedicated to just that. I do believe there are 42 national Habs games... yet idiots from Sportsnet liked to tell us that the Habs just don't sell outside of Quebec. I think it was John Shannon that said that... hilarious!
