Rinkside view telecasts to change

November 12, 2008 |  9:16 pm

The format of the controversial Rinkside View telecasts Fox has been doing for selected Kings and Ducks games will be changed, and Fox will announce those modifications today.

The telecasts, limited to games done in HD, have drawn some praise but far more criticism from hockey fans. Although the camera placement allows for occasionally nifty views, especially from the camera above the nets, more often than not it's hard to follow the puck and watch plays as they develop.

Fans haven't been shy in expressing their displeasure--there have been lengthy threads at web sites such as it appears that the folks at Fox have been willing to listen.
