The Team 990 New English Radio Home Of The Habs

The Team 990 reached an agreement with the Montreal Canadiens to become the exclusive English radio home for the next seven seasons.

As part of the deal, the Team 990 will broadcast all 82 regular season games, playoff games and pre-season games. The station will also produce pre- and post-game shows. CJAD 800 was the previous English radio home of the Canadiens.

“It’s truly something special for everyone here at The Team 990 to become the new radio home of the Montreal Canadiens,” said Wayne Bews, general manager of The Team 990. “As a proud member of the Montreal community, the Habs have always dominated our airwaves. This new partnership with the Canadiens organization will enable us to give hockey fans even more coverage of our city’s team.”

The Team 990 and the Canadiens will announce its game play-by-play team later this summer.

ESPN for Xbox Live Available Starting Today

The long awaited debut of ESPN for Xbox is over. Starting today, Xbox Live gold members can update their consoles and get access to ESPN for Xbox… provided they get their internet from an affiliated ESPN service provider.

The deal is something of a breakthrough for a traditional TV network… especially one as large as ESPN. Fans will now be able to watch live programming from on their TV sets… a huge step forward over the often cramped computer screen. For a huge Australian Rules Football fan (a group which your SportsNewser editor proudly includes himself), this is a big deal.

There will also be some technological gimmickry, like Xbox Kinect integration, allowing you to control the programming by waving your hand.

It will also lend some ammo to cable cord-cutting evangelists, although most major sporting events will not be available on the service, and you still need to get your internet from a cable provider, as well as a premium XBox Live subscription.

More information after the jump.
