NEW YORK (September 28, 2007) - The National Hockey League (NHL) today announced NHL Center Ice Online, the League’s out-of-market online subscription package, is now accepting registrations for the 2007-08 season on NHL.com. NHL Center Ice Online provides fans the opportunity to watch more than 1,000 NHL live games throughout the regular-season, plus select games from the Stanley Cup Playoffs through a broadband connection on a personal computer or laptop (all games subject to local blackout). The NHL has partnered with NeuLion, Inc. to create a new and improved multimedia player for NHL.com and all of the 30 club sites which will stream NHL Center Ice Online.
Fans will get a special glimpse of NHL Center Ice Online through a free preview which will run from Sept. 29 – Oct. 9 in the United States, and from Oct. 3 – Oct. 9 in Canada. This free preview period also will be offered through the television version of NHL Center Ice.
The NHL Center Ice Online service is currently available throughout North America, US Territories, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. NHL Center Ice Online is a portable service; once registered from a home location, the service can be accessed remotely throughout any one of these countries.
“NHL Center Ice Online is another extension of our philosophy to offer fans NHL games whenever they want,” said Keith Ritter, President, NHL Interactive CyberEnterprises. “While there is nothing better than watching NHL games in-person, we are confident our fans will enjoy this exciting alternative for those who can not make it to the rink.”
To purchase NHL Center Ice Online, log on to NHL.com or NHL.tv. Now through Oct. 9, the price is reduced $20 through an “early bird” special.
