The Ottawa Senators have reportedly signed a new television deal worth up to $400 million according to the Ottawa Sun.

The deal will last 12 years and will involve Senators games broadcast in two languages.

TSN will broadcast regional games in English whilst their sister station RDS will provide French language content. TSN 1200 will control all radio broadcasts of the games.

The figures within the  agreement is yet to be confirmed by either side. 

Ottawa are currently 11th in the Eastern Conference after making the conference semi-finals last year.

Rodgers Communications revealed in November that they would become the NHL's broadcast partner in Canada in a $5.2 billion 12-year deal.

It was reported that TSN have been looking for a regional deal ever since and have snapped up one of the premiere Canadian teams.

Around 35% of people in Ottawa can speak both French and English and all public services in the City are bilingual.

The Senators national rival, Toronto Maple Leafs have an expiring television deal and could receive a similar sum in the near future should there be an interested party.
