Some European hockey on American TV


Recommended Posts

I know there are a lot of hockey fans on here and a few menioned wanting to see some games from Europe on TV. It look like NBC has launched a new channel called Universal Sports. It appears they bought WCSN.com which broadcasted the IIHF World Championships in the US over the internet last spring. The channel is mostly Olmpic sports but there seems to be a fair amount of hockey on it and will probably have this years World Championships on it. They are also airing the IIHF Champions Hockey League which is similar to Uefa's soccer champions league featuring the top european clubs. The best part is this channel is an over the air network which means if you are in one of the markets that has the channel it's free. It probably is on your cable and if not if you have a digital tv with tuner and some rabbit years you can get it. Here are the markets and channels of where it is available (I'm wathcing it on NBC 4.3 in Maryland).

I guess it's safe to assume that only NBC's O&O's have this right now?

I believe there are a few ABC and CBS stations that have the channel on their extra digital channels. But yes it's mostly NBC Owned and Operated.

BTW, the play by by announcer is Paul Romanuk who did NHL games for TSN before moving to the UK.
