NBCSN Coverage - Will I miss Pens games?

Postby TheHammer24 on Tue Apr 30, 2013 11:31 pm

I live in Chicago. Tonight, the Hawks were the NBCSN game but because they're local we watched the game on Comcast Sports Net. However, because the game went into OT NBCSN remained blacked out.

I wonder if the local stations have exclusive hockey rights (like how CBS is blacked out when the Bears play) such that when the hawks play I'll miss all hockey.

Yes, local broadcasts have exclusive rights. You'll be fine.

I live in Chicago. What happens if the pens and Hawks overlap?

I think NBCSN would show the Pens game.

You'll be fine. The NHL has it set up so every game will be on either NBCSN NBC or CNBC

I live in Minneapolis, and the LA / Stl game was on CNBC. Yes, the Detroit game was blacked out until after Minneapolis game ended. So really, the only way you'll be blacked out is if: The Pens are supposed to be on the same channel right after Chicago plays and Chicago has a long OT game

With the Chicago OT game last night they were showing the Duck/Wings game on NHL network until the Chicago game was over so they're doing a good job of not missing the games.

not sure what provider you have but in the case of DirecTV they always have a second channel to open up (usually right below the original channel) in case 1 game goes long. another reason I love my DTV. :)

NHL was advertising when NBC bought the coverage that all games will be broadcasted, so i imagine it will be on.

So will this game be on Root tonight or NCBSN for our area.

If you get Root, it will be on Root. Rest of the country will get it on one of the NBC stations.

I believe Sunday's game is the only "National" game where it will be NBC only.

In the event of an overlap between Hawks and Pens, if its on NBC or NBCSN or CNBC or whatever you can watch via an ipad or something along those lines with NBC Sports Extra app, came in real handy last night during the dual OT games. One on TV one on the app.

Not ideal, but better than nothing -- I think you can also stream online via their website

All NBC national games can be streamed online or at least they were last couple seasons. There is only one game on each other channel and it looks like they are keeping NHL Network open for overlaps like OT games.

Now if multiple games go to OT and two are scheduled behind it you may have a later game get delayed or NHL net swapping back and forth. Seeing as the Pens are THE HIGHEST rated team they won't ever mess up coverage.

Comcast customers have also been able to stream NBCSN games lately. If you knwo a Comcast customer, askl them to create an email address for you, you will then have streaming access to all of their services they subscribe to, even HBO Go.

For example, last night there was overlap due to the 2 games going into OT. The first period of the Ducks/Wings game ended up being moved to NHL Network. I doubt there would be any problems with overlap from games ending to late since all the Pens games will start at 7/730.

Just wait until the Kentucky Derby pre-race coverage bumps the end of another game.
