    Default NHL TV Rights in Europe - Requesting WiziWig Members' Help

    Hey,

    Just wanted to know if any of you knew of TV channels that had picked up rights to NHL in Europe this year? Basically I want to map the coverage...

    UK - Premier Sports
    Ireland - Setanta Ireland
    Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland - Viasat
    Czech Republic - Nova Sport
    Portugal - Sport TV
    Turkey - Digiturk

    Please post in this thread when/if a TV channel gets rights, so I can update.

    Not necessarily, Premier Sports is owned by the director of Setanta. They show similar content, you'd expect that. However, Setanta are showing a lot of different games from what I've seen.

    It seems that whatever Premier sports has shown then setanta has also shown it, BUT Setanta has shown alot of other games that premier sports havent.
    So we seem to be getting alot more games overall on setanta than premier-sports.

    P.s - i so need to get one of those BIG dishes to pick up that viasat - those feckers have everything

    Viasat will have everything yes

    RE: Setanta/Premier Sports. What you're saying is true but remember they take the NHL given feeds and will probably have similar contracts. Like Sport TV (Portugal) showing very few games, but whatever they show is the generic game (i.e. on Setanta, Premier Sports, Nova, Viasat Hockey etc.)

    Just to clarify this

    The deal covers all countries in which ESPN America is available across continental Europe and Turkey, excluding the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.
