NBC extends deal with NHL

March 28, 2007|Larry Stewart

Borrowing a component from its contract with the NFL, NBC announced Tuesday a one-year extension of its revenue-sharing deal with the NHL that will include "flex scheduling."

Instead of having a set schedule next season, NBC in most cases will pick one game 13 days in advance to televise nationally on Saturday or Sunday over a nine-week period. The network will select from at least three games.

"Flexible scheduling worked well for us with the NFL last season, and we think it will here too," said Dick Ebersol, NBC Sports chairman.

The deal includes a 2008-09 season option.
