NEW YORK -- With historically tight playoff races in both conferences, The National Hockey League (NHL) today announced new "Day Pass" pricing for NHL GameCenter LIVE™. Starting tonight and continuing through the Stanley Cup Playoffs™, fans can now watch a single night of NHL action for $19.95.
The League will continue to offer its NHL GameCenter LIVE's "Race for the Cup" package, which for $79.95 streams all available games through the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
NHL GameCenter LIVE streams up to 40 games per week (blackout and other restrictions apply), and is specifically designed for those avid fans looking for the most complete, in-game NHL viewing experience, as well as for the nearly 50 percent of NHL fans that live away from their favorite team's local television market and crave more live game coverage.
A central component of the new NHL.com, NHL GameCenter LIVE surrounds hockey fans with TV-quality streaming video, multiple and exclusive camera angles, multi-games view, real-time stats, chat and much more.
NHL GameCenter Live has proven extremely popular with hockey fans so far this season and subscriptions to the service have increased nearly 250 percent compared to last season.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
