Our national TV revealed today the program for the worlds.


Almost 24 hours per day 2 full weeks of hockey are awaiting us.


All 64 matches will be broadcasted, 32 Live on RTVS:Šport and the other 32 which will be played simultaneously will be on delay right after the live covered match.


All SVK matches will be obviously broadcasted on TV and on national Radio Slovensko 1.


4 Commentators (TV) and 2 (Radio) + 4 experts will cover the games, 3 Reporters will cover the tournament via different reportages. Our TV will have also its own studio at the Helsinki arena.


At the end of every evening session there will be also popular comedy-style TV show around the tournament followed by 30 minutes highlights of all daily matches. Games will be then replayed until the new daymatch begin again interrupted by several documentaries focused on the 20 years anniversary of our world title from 2002 and other cameo fro the previous tournaments etc...





great coverage, as usual...


p.s. from yesterday, I'm a Slovak, too...:yikes: :lol:


the fact is that in Italy the NHL havs dismissed and left us with the average (if not poor) coverage by ESPN Player (we also have a tv broadcaster like sky Italia, but they only show 1 game/week in the RS and 2/3 games/week now in the playoffs)...


but, surprise surprise, since yesterday also the ESPN Player's service is unavailable in Italy, so we can't watch the NHL playoffs anywhere except for the few games offered by sky ITA...:yikes: :cry: :facepalm: :hairpull:


so, I turned my vpn on and I subscribed as if I were in Bratislava...and luckily it works well on my android TV, so I can watch the NHL playoffs in peace :yikes: :d :thumbup: :cheer:

(unfortunately my apple tv's app -which has a way better picture quality- doesn't work :cry: because no vpn can be used on it and because they make a check connected to the Apple ID and the GPS position -and my Apple ID is Italian and the GPS does locate me in Italy, of course)...

This is not looking good. 3rd loss in a row...

I know these are just exhibition games preparing for the Worlds at home, but still. We need to play better.

Bittersweet that most of our NHLers are playing in the playoffs atm & have a good chance to make it a long run :thumbup:
