Comcast Offers NHL On Demand

NEW YORK / PHILADELPHIA (Jan. 27, 2009) – Today, Comcast Corporation, the nation’s leading provider of entertainment, information and communications, and the NHL Network announced an agreement to offer the first On Demand access to NHL and hockey dedicated programming.  Under the terms of the agreement, NHL Network subscribers can access in-depth hockey coverage On Demand including NHL game highlights made available only hours after game completion and at no additional charge.

From the latest news and game highlights to classic hockey moments, hockey fans can experience the NHL in a whole new way, anytime of the day, with some content available in high definition.  NHL Network On Demand provides in-depth hockey coverage including delivery of condensed NHL games only hours after game completion, player profiles, historical vignettes, daily and weekly wrap-up content, draft coverage and top NHL Network programs including the popular series NHL On The Fly.  NHL Network On Demand can be found on Channel 1 in “Sports & Fitness” under “NHL.”

“We are pleased that this partnership between Comcast and the NHL Network enables us to bring high quality hockey programming to our customers On Demand,” said Matt Strauss, Senior Vice President of New Media for Comcast.  “In addition to being able to watch a full slate of hockey coverage when it’s convenient for them, our customers can now enjoy unique content like condensed NHL games just hours after they air, with the ability to fast forward, rewind and pause the action.”

“As the NHL Network continues to grow with new exciting content, we continue to look at new and interesting ways to make it available to our fans so they don’t miss a minute of the action,” said Jody Shapiro, NHL Senior Vice President of Distribution.  “By partnering with Comcast to offer NHL Network On Demand, we are putting the power back into the hands of our fans to determine what great NHL Network content they want to watch, when they want to watch it.”
