Montreal Canadiens reach regional broadcast deal with RDS

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens reached a 12-year regional broadcast rights agreement that will make RDS the official broadcaster of the Quebec hockey team through the 2025-2026 season.

The agreement includes broadcast rights for 60 regular-season games as well as additional pre-season games each season in the team's designated broadcast region.

"Montreal Canadiens games have been a cornerstone of RDS programming for the past two decades and our commitment to covering the team and the league has never been stronger," said Gerry Frappier, President of RDS.

As part of the agreement, RDS' parent company Bell also retains naming rights to the Bell Centre through 2028. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
