The National Hockey League season approaches the quarter mark at about the same time that holiday shopping draws our full attention, so it only makes sense that subscriptions are underway for a special NHL.TV Black Friday Sale that saves you 40 percent on the yearly price to watch live out-of-market games.
Best of all, you don't have to fight mall crowds and stalk parking spots.
Just kick back with your leftover turkey and start your expert shopping attack with the one thing you want most - to watch hockey how you want, when you want, where you want. Get a subscription for yourself, a family member or a friend without having to worry about shipping fees or expected delivery dates. The gift is already in the bag, leaving you plenty of time to order that Ugly Sweater and dig through that new NHL.com/shop Holiday Gift Guide.
With the NHL.TV Black Friday Sale, you can watch every remaining regular season out-of-market game live on more than 400 supported devices. By taking 40 percent off the normal $139.96 All-Access yearly subscription package, you save $55.98 for a total cost of only $83.98. This package has the best value if you want to be immersed in the whole NHL scene throughout the regular season.
New features of NHL.TV include a slow-motion DVR control for the HD desktop media player; additional on-demand highlights for select connected devices; and an all-new app for Apple TV (fourth generation), with multi-game streaming. Blackouts and other restrictions apply, including any national blackouts.
Choose the home or away broadcast so you can embrace tradition and listen to your favorite play-by-play voices. From Joe Bowen in Toronto to Mike Lange in Pittsburgh to Pat Foley in Chicago to Bob Miller in Los Angeles, they are often the irreplaceable voices you grew up with, defining your first love with sport and team.
You might feel like Penguins fan Ben Feller, who subscribed last week and tweeted: "I finally made the plunge and NHL.TV and OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE I'M NEVER LEAVING MY PLACE EVER AGAIN." Fortunately, you can wander about the planet and watch your favorite team, because what makes NHL.TV even more essential is its portability.
The NHL App lets you take the action anywhere. Simply log in with your NHL.TV username and password to access live and on-demand hockey, and the greatest game in the world is in the palm of your hand. Enhanced team integration lets you customize the app to feature your favorite team, and you also stay connected with live radio feeds, real-time updates, in-game highlights and more.
The NHL.TV Black Friday Sale also applies to the Single Team Package, which is $111.96 yearly. If you have questions, support for all subscribers is available with a technical forum and by tweeting @NHLTVSupport as needed.
