NHL May Stream Into Canada

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
The National Hockey League is keenly interested in bringing live broadband streaming of game telecasts into the Canadian market for the coming season. "It's an opportunity we're looking at seriously," said Doug Perlman, the league's senior vice-president of television and media ventures. Perlman said the league would need to clear the carriage of Internet game broadcasts with national and regional television rights holders as well as the distributors of the NHL Centre Ice pay-per-view package. "You have to be mindful and respectful of our relationship with our partners," he said. "But against that backdrop, we're looking at how we can provide a streaming product that makes sense."
