'Net, TSN fill up 2006 Cup

Rogers Sportsnet and TSN are teaming up to show the 2006 World Cup of soccer.


CTV will show the tournament final from Germany on July 9, 2006, but the other 63 games will be split between the two rival sports channels, the networks announced yesterday.

Rogers Sportsnet was the World Cup rights-holder in Canada, but struck a deal with TSN to evenly split coverage. The agreement will allow live coverage of all the games for the first time.

Previously, some games had to be shown tape-delayed because of simultaneous kickoff times.

Sportsnet and TSN will repeat games in prime time.

The tournament will mark the first collaboration between the rival networks, although Bell Globemedia, which owns CTV and TSN, and Rogers are joining forces for coverage of the 2010 and 2012 Olympics.

"It was best for the viewership to look for the sub-licence (with TSN)," said David Akande, Sportsnet's senior VP of programming, adding that placing the final on CTV "makes the most sense" because of its wider reach.

Each network will have its own studio presence, but production and ad sales groups are likely to be shared.

CBC and TSN split the last World Cup TV coverage in Canada. The World Cup, which begins June 9, features 32 teams competing in 12 German cities including Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin, the host venue for the final.
All games live... which ones will Vic Reuter (sp?) get? :D

Good news - HD for everything!

2006 FIFA World Cup Games Live in High Definition on Rogers Sportsnet, TSN and CTV

Rogers Sportsnet, TSN and CTV today announced the combined broadcast schedule for this summer's 2006 FIFA World Cup, and for the first time in Canada, all 64 games will be televised live and in High Definition.

Sportsnet and Sportsnet HD will televise 32 matches nationally, while TSN and TSN HD will broadcast 31 matches across the country during the month-long tournament in Germany from June 9 to July 9. The final will be broadcast live on CTV and in High Definition on CTV HD East/West on July 9.

TSN and TSN HD will also broadcast numerous encores of the live matches nationally, while Sportsnet will televise encores on its four channels (Rogers Sportsnet East, Rogers Sportsnet Ontario, Rogers Sportsnet West, Rogers Sportsnet Pacific).

"TSN has a long and storied history presenting the World Cup to Canadians and we're proud to continue that tradition, this time in collaboration with Rogers Sportsnet," said Phil King, President, TSN. "The World Cup is the largest single sports event in the world, the ideal platform to showcase the power and brilliance of sports in HD."

"We are pleased to offer Canadian viewers unprecedented World Cup coverage," said Rogers Sportsnet President Doug Beeforth. "The fact that all the games are presented live, in HD, and offered again in encore broadcasts on both networks is a testimony to the partnership between Sportsnet and TSN."

Sportsnet and TSN will produce and televise pre-game and post-game shows for the majority of live matches. Hosted by Vic Rauter and Gerry Dobson, with analysis from Craig Forrest and Dick Howard, the shows (along with all half-time shows) will be anchored from a shared broadcast studio.

TSN and Sportsnet will also produce and televise a one-hour FIFA World Cup Preview Show on July 8, providing an in-depth overview of all 32-teams competing in the tournament and the eight groups. The preview includes features from Germany with a look at the host cities and stadia.

In addition, comprehensive 60-minute preview shows will air on Sportsnet and TSN prior to the Quarter-finals and Semifinals, while the one-hour Road to Gold preview of the championship final airs on July 8 at 1:30 p.m. ET on Sportsnet and TSN.
Not too sure about seeing/hearing Vic & Gerry in High-Def :rolleyes:
