By Dan StapletonThe National Hockey League has signed a partnership with a Canadian sports streaming service to allow fans to enjoy a wide range of NHL games on the go.
The NHL is introducing a new, multi-streaming service called NHL Digital Storm, which will offer subscribers access to a wide selection of games from the league’s regular season, playoffs and Stanley Cup Final.
It also will stream the Stanley Cup Finals.NHL Digital Storm is expected to debut next month.
It’s designed to offer a wide variety of NHL content that includes the NHL’s regular-season games, the Stanley and Conference Finals, and the Stanley Playoffs, as well as special games like the All-Star Game.
The deal with Canadian streaming service Digital Storm has not yet been announced.
It’s a partnership between NHL DigitalStorm and the league, which means that NHL Digitalstorm will be able to stream some of the league games without having to buy NHL-branded digital subscription boxes.
This means that fans who want to stream the playoffs, conference finals or the NHL All-star Game won’t have to spend a dime on a digital subscription or pay a premium price.
However, there are still a few caveats.
It will be the first time that the NHL is selling its games in the U.S. and the only time that it’s doing so on a single platform.
The NHL will also be offering a single subscription package that includes all of the regular- and postseason games.
It may be that fans will pay a little extra for the NHL Digital subscription package, but for the most part the subscription will be free.
The price for the individual games will also vary based on which region the game is played in.NDP’s own digital subscriber, NHL Digital, launched in the United States in 2014.NEXT: What is the NHL doing to stream games online?
