Rogers 2015–16 NHL National Television Schedule

Now into the second year of their multi-gazillion dollar deal with the NHL, Rogers will broadcast over 500 national and regional games during the upcoming season which begins tomorrow night.

Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday nights will be their national programming windows again this season, with the only major change being that Sunday’s Hometown Hockey moves from free-to-air channel City TV onto cable on Sportsnet. If the latter half of last season is any indication, it would also seem FX Canada will no longer be used for hockey programming. Thursday nights will also have a minimum of one national game and obviously, full coverage of the All-Star Game, Stadium Series, Winter Classic and the NHL playoffs.

9 thoughts on “Rogers 2015–16 NHL National Television Schedule

  1. The Canucks Saturday games on November 7 at 1000h Pacific and January 23 at 930h Pacific are part of the HNIC group.

    The additional Sunday and Wednesday games, the vast majority will be on Sportsnet One.

  2. Last season they put out a pdf schedule that included most of the US games they’d be picking up. This year we don’t even know what their Thursday games are yet =\

    • I was disappointed too that they didn’t release a full schedule. If you look ahead on the regular sportsnet broadcast schedule, it will show upcoming US-US matchups. I think they want to show the best game each time they have a US-US time slot so that’s why they didn’t release it. One other thing: I find it very disappointing that SN doesn’t usually show the big NBCSN game on Wednesday.

  3. What I think is really telling is how the Sunday night games went from free OTA to cable, meaning that CITY-TV is back to broadcasting whatever Rogers buys for airing Sunday night (which IIRC was the stuff that no one else wanted from the CTV/Global cabal)

    I guess the whole “Rogers Hometown Hockey” schtick on Sunday is dead too? Wonder what that means for Ron MacLean?

  4. Rogers Hometown Hockey moving to SN was a move mainly to encourage viewers to buy their channels to gain revenue.

    • Only for those folks not technologically inclined enough to subscribe to NHL Game Centre Live.

      In fact with the new Apple TV coming in October with Siri integration it’ll make it stone simple to call up the app (and search for the game that you want to watch in the app)

      In fact removing the Sunday package from OTA after a year puts a clear focus on what Rogers intends to do longer term with the NHL property.

      I think this means that CBC’s HNIC is on borrowed time, that “four year deal” may not make it to its expiry…

  5. There’s going to be a number of conflicts with the playoffs for Major League Baseball, particularly if the Jays make it right to the World Series. For this first weekend of the NHL season, Sportsnet has announced:

    Wed Oct 7 – 7pm – MTL @ TOR – Sportsnet
    Wed Oct 7 – 10pm – VAN @ CGY – Sportsnet 360 / Sportsnet (joined in progress)

    Thurs Oct 8 – 8pm – EDM @ STL – Sportsnet 360

    Fri Oct 9 – 7:30pm – TOR @ DET – Sportsnet One

    Sat Oct 10 – 1pm – TBL @ BUF – Sportsnet
    Sat Oct 10 – 7pm – OTT @ TOR – CBC
    Sat Oct 10 – 7pm – MTL @ BOS – Sportsnet
    Sat Oct 10 – 7pm – EDM @ NSH – City
    Sat Oct 10 – 10pm – CGY @ VAN – CBC

    Sun Oct 11 – 7pm – MTL @ OTT – Sportsnet One

  6. Maybe next season Stroumboulopolos will be gone.

  7. Nothing to do with hockey, I have heard that Bob Costas will be calling 2 games of the Jays-Rangers series, I think the Jays will lose both of those games, the curse of Bob Costas will rear it’s ugly head. Any long time Jays fan would know Bob called the 1985 and 1989 ALCS involving the Jays, which they both lost.
