Raleigh, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes will continue to be televised on FOX Sports Carolinas through the 2013-14 season after a multi-year deal was reached Thursday.
FOX Sports Carolinas will televise, in high-definition, all Hurricanes regular-season and playoff games not carried by NHL national rights holders as well as produce pre- and post-game shows for every game.
“We are very pleased to continue to partner with FOX Sports Carolinas as the Hurricanes’ television rights holder,” said Karmanos. “This new deal is an important piece for the growth of our business, and it’s a major win for fans who will get to see every game on local television.”
The current deal, which calls for 65 of the team’s regular-season games to be televised, will remain in effect for 2012-13.
The Carolina Hurricanes open a back-to-back set of home games on Friday at PNC Arena against the Winnipeg Jets, before hosting the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.
I am curious if the owners will ever get the itch to leave if they find a Canadian city that is wanting a team. The team has not made the playoffs very many years since the cup season (hard to believe that has been six long years ago). I think they have only made it once since then.- Posted by BigUNCFan
With the high prices for tickets and parking and concessions, I am curious as to how many people go on a non weekend game day. I personally would have a hard time spending the money for a family of 4 to go during the week especially when the kids have school the next day. Besides a minor league baseball game gives little kids who don't know about major league sports the same entertainment value for a fraction of the costs.
Nothing personal against the Canes, just curious if there is enough in terms of hockey fan interests to keep this going long term when the team does not make many playoff appearances.
What about a local web option? I would watch more games if they weren't only on pay tv services.- Posted by naytchrboy

More meaningless games of the mediocre Tropical Depressions on TV ... wonderful.
Go back to Pittsburgh and make me some ketchup. We don't give a rats behind what you think.
