Bell and Rogers unable to team up for NHL rights bid

Bell Media and Rogers Media have been told that they cannot team up to bid for the NHL broadcast rights when they come available in 2014.

The Board of Governors has denied the two media giants the chance to pinch the rights from CBC in one big, meaning they will have to compete against each other.

Both Bell and Rogers have stated their intentions to go after the rights, which CBC has vowed to defend.
