Canadian Nets Sign NHL Deal - The NHL and Canadian TV networks CBC and TSN reached a five-year agreement for carriage of professional hockey games, ensuring that regular-season and playoff matches will be televised in Canada through the 2006-2007 season. TSN returns after a four-year absence. It will carry playoff games for three rounds, filling in the gaps left by CBC. CBC will maintain exclusive Canadian TV rights to the Stanley Cup finals.
World Radio Network Goes Digital - World Radio Network, the London-based international broadcaster, has begun digital satellite transmissions in North America on the Telstar 5 satellite for its WRN1 English and WRN2 multi-lingual radio networks. Since 1993, WRN1 and WRN2 have been broadcast on the Galaxy 5 satellite in the C-Band analog format. The analog feeds will be phased out at the end of 2001 as distribution migrates to Ku-Band on Telstar 5.
