“Yes, ‘On the Fly’ will be available in HD this season,” said Collins, as if he anticipated the question.
“On the Fly” is the NHL Network equivalent of MLB Network’s “MLB Live Tonight.” “On the Fly” is for hockey junkies — an all-night barrage of highlights, commentary, interviews and live look-ins at games. However, since the network launched in 2007, the popular program has not been available in hi-def — a felony in Hockey Nation. No more.
Collins revealed that this season NHL Network is taking over the former studios of Rogers Sportsnet in Canada, “on the CTV campus,” as he called it. “On the Fly” will not see any drastic changes in editorial content, but everything else about the production will be elevated.
