"Some hockey will be HD. CBC only has 1 HD mobile, so some games have to be SD. The details about which games get HD coverage and where they will be shown are not available yet."
And in reply to another HNIC HD question:
"There will be HD coverage of both NHL and CFL games. That's what the HD mobile unit is for. Where did this idea that we wouldn't cover the games come from?"
A HNIC doubleheader question:

And...if there will only be East coverage at the beginning...how long before we start seeing the HNIC double header in HD as well? Can't wait.
"No schedule has been released so far. As for double headers, I don't expect to see that this season. We only have one HD mobile unit.
So, good news for Canadian hockey fans, and our neighbours in the "Southern Provinces"
