The Buffalo Sabres and Bell today announced that Sabres games will now be carried on Bell TV in Southern Ontario, Canada. Sabres games, which were previously available on NHL Center Ice, will now be included as part of Bell TV regular programming – at no extra cost— starting with the Oct. 10 matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

“This is a momentous day for our organization and, more importantly, the thousands of Sabres fans in Southern Ontario,” said Sabres president Ted Black. “We have been aware of the very large number of Sabres fans in Southern Ontario for quite some time and, until now, they have been able to see only a very small percentage of Sabres television broadcasts despite being geographically closer to us than Rochester. We are very proud of getting this done for our fans and we’re thankful to Bell TV and MSG for all the hard work that went into the negotiations.”

A total of 50 Sabres game telecasts from the 2013-14 season will be carried only on Bell Fibe and Satellite TV services on channel 442 (standard definition) and channel 1442 (high definition) in homes from Fort Erie/Niagara Falls to Stoney Creek in Southern Ontario. While Sabres games will now be available to all Bell Fibe and Satellite TV customers in the Southern Ontario region at no extra charge through the regular Bell TV package, games will not be available in the region on NHL Centre Ice or the NHL GameCenter online application.

“Many people don’t think of the Southern Ontario region as being ‘Sabres Territory’ because it’s in a different country,” Black said. “But, in reality, some of our most passionate fans come from right over the Peace Bridge. They’ve been crossing the border to come to games at the arena for years and now they’ll be able to watch a majority of Sabres games from the comfort of their homes.”

“Bell is the Canadian leader in sports programming across all screens and we’re proud to bring Buffalo Sabres hockey to Bell Fibe and Satellite TV customers in Southern Ontario at no extra charge. Hockey just got better with the Sabres and Bell,” said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Chief Brand Officer at Bell.
