NHL and Bally Sports TV Contracts To End After This Season





The National Hockey League’s TV contracts with Bally Sports are set to expire after the 2023-2024 season, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Bally Sports is seeking approval to continue airing the NHL’s in-market games through the end of the season, according to a document filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. If the judge approves the motion, Bally Sports’ NHL rights would return to the team at the end of the current season.

Bally Sports has asked the judge to approve the deal by January 3, 2024.

This comes as the NBA and MLB’s contracts with Bally Sports are also set to expire at the end of the season. Currently, the MLB is working on a deal similar to the NHL’s. In some ways, the NHL and NBA’s respective deals are contingent on Bally’s deal with the MLB, according to Sportico.

In addition, these negotiations are happening while Bally Sports is trying to work its way out of bankruptcy.

Under the reported terms of the deal, if Bally Sports is unable to hold up its end of the agreement, the NHL can terminate the contract.

To date, 11 NHL clubs are still with Bally Sports. The regional sports network holds the TV and streaming rights to the Carolina Hurricanes, Dallas Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Minnesota Wild, Columbus Blue Jackets, Nashville Predators, Anaheim Ducks, and the Detroit Red Wings. The Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, and St. Louis Blues are part-owners of their respective stations.
