Canada continues to stick it to the U.S. when it comes to hockey. Not only do they get the gold medal, now Canadians can watch Hockey Night in Canada streamed live on Yahoo Canada for the rest of the season. (For those who made it through the Vancouver closing ceremonies, the table top hockey part of the Made in Canada parade was to the famed theme song from HNIC.) The Yahoo-CBC deal runs from this Saturday through the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including live playoff games. They’re not disclosing financial details and I haven’t been able to confirm whether any money is actually changing hands or if ad rev share is involved. Release.



it has been free online at for years…
So yahoo is trying to get in on it.
Hopefully, yahoo will start streaming other games to Canadians as well, like they do in the US. They stream a live game almost every day.
If they do this for free, yahoo would get more of my internet traffic, more internet add revenue, etc. Hardly foolish!
