More information on the AO TV schedule. I checked the ESPN2 and that is indeed correct. ESPN2 will have all the coverage from Sunday night January 16 until Friday night of the women's final US time. The men's semifinals and final will be played as a night match in Australia and would be seen here at 3:30 AM EST if it were live on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday mornings. It will be live on the Spanish languange ESPN service in the US. The English language does not list it live but only on tape. However if it like in the past they may show any matche live that involve US players with a repeat at the last taped time. However with the addition of the Spanish language service they may feel they no longer need to offer it live in the wee hours on ESPN2. Direct TV does have the Spanish language ESPN service if you subscribe to the Spanish language startions and have a multi satelite dish. ESPN will show the men's final on tape. ALso when I checked the ESPN2 listings for the AO time period they seem to assume there will be no NHL going on. They have shows listed in all time slots with no NHL or to be announced. The NHL had told teams on a rotating basis they can cancel game 45 days in advance and that would take you to early February. However some of the times listed to seem to have cheap trash or endless repeats of extreme sports. They were probably supposed to be some of the NHL games that will not be played. Other first run sports could pehaps take their place if they can get them signed up. In fact ESPN2 has signed up this year for the World Junior Hockey championships that are played this year in Minnesota and North Dakota. This was recently done and seems to be an NHL replacement game. The first three will be December 25, 27, and 29. Then any other games the US is envolved throught January 5 when the final is played. To me it seems the NHL will probably not have a season at all because it looks like it will be early February before you would get any games and it seems it would seem to be to late for a meaningful season. If that is the case them perhaps we can look forward to more night matches of the Masters Series from California and Florida.
