NHL, Comcast, OLN stream live games via Internet

The National Hockey League (NHL), OLN and Comcast have reached an agreement that will allow Comcast to stream games live to broadband Internet customers during the 2005-2006 NHL season over the Internet.

The move makes Comcast, which has more than 7.7 million high-speed Internet customers, one of the first Internet service providers to stream NHL games.

The agreement gives Comcast high-speed Internet customers access to up to two live games per day, or up to 300 throughout the season, through the Stanley Cup playoffs. The new service began Oct. 5 in the Sports channel on Comcast.net.

In November, Comcast.net will add new NHL content to its Sports Channel, including:

  • access to archived streamed games (for 48 hours after original broadcast);
  • Hockey Live video player to watch live and archived games
  • Hockey Fan video player for video clips of game highlights, previews, reviews and interviews
  • links to OLN television schedule and expert commentary
  • links to NHL full-season schedule and merchandise
  • NHL Scoreboard.
