Talking Broadband

from Multichannel News,

The NHL also hasn’t announced a launch date for its broadband service, but the league said it would open the broadband feed to anyone for a fee — most likely mirroring the $129 cost of the NHL Center Ice linear service. Customers who already subscribe to Center Ice via satellite or digital cable would receive a rebate.
While Ritter said the league hopes to generate incremental revenue from the broadband service, it’s more a complementary service to coverage from its national TV rights holders Versus and NBC, as well as the various regional sports networks.
“I think we live in a world where people want to access content however they want to access it,” said Ritter, adding that close to 80% of traffic on NHL.com is accessed via broadband connection.
