The NHL Wins In The Disney/BAMTech Deal

from Ken Fang of Awful Announcing,

Let’s take a look at the winners and losers of the Disney/BAMTech deals.


NHL — ESPN and the NHL? We’ve covered the relationship or lack thereof between ESPN and NHL over the last ten years. But here they are together again at least on the streaming service. And thanks to MLB running the NHL’s streaming product, ESPN will offer NHL.TV subscriptions as an add-on.

MLB and NHL owners — Oh, how the rich get richer. Teams will get more money thanks to this deal and more exposure on a new platform. The money from the subscriptions will be distributed throughout both leagues and owners love money. We can’t forget the investment MLB owners made in BAMTech when it was originally developed. They are smiling today.

more winners plus the losers...

I will not watch the wings on espn.  I’d prefer to listen to it on the radio than watch that garbage network.
