Hi, I would like to know the reason behind Shaw needing to cut off the game as soon as it ends.


Last night, WPG-WSH went to overtime and was cut off immediately following the 3rd period (within seconds), obviously this game was not over and the feed wasn't returned until 44 seconds remaining in the overtime period (I'm assuming due to angry phone calls). This is not the first instance that this has happened since you guys began cutting the feeds immediately, in fact this could be the 100's by now.


My question is, why not just leave the feed alone for 30 minutes or so, which is how the system worked the first year Shaw adopted Center Ice? There were obviously no complaints that year on this issue.


Does their need to do this make sense to anyone? At the very least I would like to be able to see the WHOLE game before it gets cut off.
