In Midst of NHL Lockout, NBC Sports Network Reliving London 2012

NBC Sports Network-NHL LockoutWith the 2012-13 NHL season still on hold, that leaves one particular sports media outlet — NBC Sports Network — with plenty of holes on its programming calendar.

The Network was supposed to highlight over 90 regular season games along with another dozen on NBC.

However, with little progress at the negotiating table being made between the owners and the NHLPA, the NBC Sports Network has found a way to fill the vacancies: re-airing the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights, the Network will feature Return to London to replace NHL cancelled games.

“Live programming is the lifeblood of any sports network,” said Jon Miller, President of Programming for NBC Sports Network. “But right now, there’s not a lot of live content that’s readily available.”

According to Miller, if the lockout continues, NBC Sports Network could air additional games from conferences it already covers like A-10 basketball.
