Bettman Sees Growth Potential

from the AP via Fox Sports,
Get the clicker ready, hockey fans. The NHL is taking its games outside the traditional realm of sports television. The NHL announced Thursday it has reached a two-year deal that will put games on Outdoor Life Network, starting on opening night in October. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is eager to get hockey back on the air following the lockout that wiped out all of last season. But OLN is only available in 64 million households, compared to 90 million that have ESPN. "There's a huge pent-up demand exploding on all levels as we anticipate the relaunch on Oct. 5," Bettman said Thursday. "We're delighted by the presence and prominence of OLN."
