The National Hockey League and Synacor Extend Their Online Portal Partnership

The National Hockey League and Synacor announced an extension of their partnership in offering premium online services content for the 2007-2008 NHL season.

The NHL Premium Video and Game Notes package offers users online game summary videos, pre-game profiles, post-game summaries and more through service providers’ online portal homepage. Consumers access the content via Synacor’s single sign-on technology that allows one sign-on for portal and premium content.

The NHL provides the package, through its partnership with Synacor, to service providers, who then offer it to high-speed data customers during the regular NHL season, playoffs and Stanley Cup.

As a promotion, some NHL content will be available to select clients for use on their homepages for the remainder of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
