BASKETBALL NIGHT IN CANADA: NBA TO SIGN ON WITH CTV?
Published October 21, 1994
CTV is close to signing a deal to become the primary national carrier for the Raptors and Grizzlies. Sources have indicated that CTV's deal with the NBA calls for the network to receive eight Raptors games and eight Grizzlies games each season. That package would be supplemented by CTV picking up another 10 or so NBA games provided by NBC. TSN will not be the primary NBA carrier in Canada, but the cable network will be sold a 15-game package of Raptors and Grizzlies games (Neil Campbell, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 10/21). Farouk Muhammad, VP of Programming for CFMT, a multicultural TV station, is negotiating a contract with the Raptors to have the teams' games telecast in languages other than English or French (Ken McKee, TORONTO STAR, 10/21).
