We are under two months until the college hockey season starts and our old thread has been locked.

http://www.grandforksherald.com/content/college-hockey-nchc-commish-working-tv-contract

Thought I'd get discussion going from an article on the exclusivity deal within the TV contract of the NCHC. UND was hurt the most out of all, because they couldn't broadcast their games on Fox College Sports nationally.

Commissioner Fenton is working on changing that so teams can broadcast individual games on their own. It also says he is working on trying to get a league streaming package (exactly like the WCHA) but has roadblocks with individual school contracts with streaming providers.

How is this a problem for the NCHC when the same issues (presumably) figured out for the WCHA?

Coming from a UMD perspective, the national tv deal didn't change much. UMD had about the same number of nationally televised games as years past. But perhaps it could lead to more games on FSN or other stations. Time will tell.


As for league predictions...I really don't have a clue who is going to win.

NCHC has a streaming package. Only 82 bucks for all the games for all teams. Not too bad. They couldnt work out a deal with DU but besides road games against them in Denver who cares? :D

DU doesn't want to revenue share with other teams - what a shocker.

I hope the WCHA feels the competition and drops their price. Their price last year wasn't any more than taking one road trip, but now really seems spendy compared to this pricing.

Probably a good idea. DU doesn't want anyone to see their half full, unless they are playing UND, arena with vacant student section.

DU had signed a new agreement for streaming prior to the nchc getting all schools to Neulion.

So for those who have watched thru Neulion before, how has the quality been? I've ordered tUMD package on America One the past few years and it was good enough.

DU had been on neulion for a while, now signed with CBS, the quality is good as long as the cameras are hd. In the end it's up to the schools to produce the video, I never had a problem with the service itself.

Chromecast or some other device that enables pushing a vid to a tv is essential. I've never had much luck w/ airplay to an appletv, and I have no experience w/ roku, but i have an old boxee that has a browser, that worked fine. I hear chromecast is the best option.

We'll see!

Last year I used an HDMI cable from my laptop to HDTV and the quality with Neulion was very good and in HD. DU switched over to HD broadcast equipment last year. So far this year the free things I have watched that come through CBSi are an even better quality. Being that the NCHC has their TV contract with CBS Sports I am kind of surprised they didn't go with CBSi.

UMD's is usually pretty bad. They have HD cameras but don't broadcast in it. I've always heard the feed was bad.

Also I saw that Schlossman tweeted that the exclusivity contract with CBSSN will no longer be true. UND was the only school that that negatively affected.

So you won't put in any effort at all, just like your hockey team. Which is exactly why they weren't invited to the awesomeness that is the NCHC. Enjoy your crap league of lazy losers!

I don't decline the work, just refuse to wait in line to do it.
I hate you and your entire greedy, elitist, holier-than-thou conference.
I hope you all gag on your own puke, and that you, personally, get sentenced to 40 hours of community service to be served covering up all of Ralph's abusive logos with duct tape.

Yes, you're incredibly lazy.
But we are better than you, so really what's the problem?
40 hours, hell 400 hours, of community service in REA sounds infinitely better than having to spend even 1 second in BGSU Ice Arena.

You say the NCHC is elitist as if that's a bad thing.

Bowling Green AD: "Hey, if you guys are looking to add any teams to that conference of yours, we would like to throw our hat into the ring.."
Josh Fenton: "You guys haven't won anything since the Reagan administration and your attendance numbers are pitiful."
Bowling Green AD: "ELITIST!!!!!"

Just shows how unhappy and bitter of lives WCHA fans lead. They don't even want others to have one of the great joys in life that is ice cream. They really are worse than Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson combined.
