NHL Leaves Sirius in 2007
XM will start to air NHL games this year along side Sirius, and in 2007 XM will get NHL as an exclusive, for 10 years with a $100 million price tag... More here on an NHL press page. This could hurt Sirius Canada.. I have been told that Sirius gave up on NHL, after not having luck in the past, Sirius did not like dealing with a sport that has a small fan base in the United States, and a sport that has not had a game in a long time. "The price was not worth it..." ($10 million a year... Sirius did run the price up for XM) The NHL will kick off in Oct after a long strike.. Sirius is the exclusive home of the NFL, and English Soccer. Sirius also has NBA, AFL, College football, and Basketball. Also soon to be the exclusive home of NSCAR.
