XM Plans NHL Channel This Fall

XM Satellite Radio, the nation's leading provider of satellite radio, will begin broadcasting National Hockey League (NHL) games on October 5, the opening day of the NHL's 2005-2006 season. Live play-by-play coverage of NHL games will be carried on XM channels 204 through 209. Later this fall, XM will introduce a dedicated NHL radio channel featuring original programming that will focus on all aspects of the sport. NHL games and the NHL channel will be available to all XM subscribers for no additional charge. Under its recent ten-year agreement with the NHL, XM will become the exclusive satellite radio network of the NHL beginning with the 2007-2008 season. NHL games and XM's NHL channel will be available in Canada in the coming months through XM's partner Canadian Satellite Radio (CSR), which is funding a portion of the agreement. CSR has been awarded a license to distribute satellite radio in Canada, as recently approved by the Federal Cabinet.
