So I’ve gotten word from someone that the folks who produce web content for UnTV, an online video site, are planning on pitching a reality TV show to CBC to be based on the Halifax Rainmen. I don’t have many details beyond those basic things, but I have always thought that a reality TV show with all of them living in the same house would at least be watchable. Then again, after some of the stories I’ve heard about that house I don’t know if I’d want to see it.
I think that some sort of online deal needs to be worked out to broadcast games. Part of the problem is that a lack of confirmed league makes those plans, and many other ones including try outs, impossible due to differences in season length and existing broadcasting plans of leagues (i.e. D-league gets some NBA TV coverage, PBL has its own webcast plan of some sort, etc.).
