CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada Distribution for October
CBC has released the distribution for Hockey Night in Canada for the month of October. Here is the distribution for CBC’s regional coverage this month.
Saturday October 15
Calgary @ Toronto – Alberta, Ontario, Atlantic
Colorado @ Montreal – Quebec
Ottawa @ Washington – Ottawa
Winnipeg @ Phoenix – Manitoba, Saskatchewan, BC, Northwestern Ontario
Saturday October 22
Toronto @ Montreal – Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic, Alberta, BC
Columbus @ Ottawa – Ottawa
Carolina @ Winnipeg – Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northwestern Ontario
Saturday October 29
Pittsburgh @ Toronto – Ontario, Alberta
Boston @ Montreal – Quebec, Atlantic, BC
Winnipeg @ Tampa Bay – Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northwestern Ontario
So, it seems like all Jets games will go to Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northwestern Ontario. I’m quite surprised by the October 15 listings, Calgary @ Toronto would seem to make more sense in Saskatchewan and Northwestern Ontario to be honest. The Flames share Saskatchewan with Winnipeg and the Leafs share Northern Ontario with Winnipeg. I also don’t understand why the game isn’t being shown in BC, when the Flames are the Canucks rivals. Since it is an all-Canadian matchup (featuring the Leafs no less), it should get maximum distribution.
Otherwise, everything makes sense; aside from British Columbia getting Boston @ Montreal, while Alberta gets Pittsburgh @ Toronto.
