SIRIUS XM RADIO is adding NHL hockey coverage to its streaming online and mobile phone app service. The streaming will commence with this year's STANLEY CUP Playoffs and will include all of next season's regular season games, the NHL All-Star Game, and all postseason games.
"We're very pleased to be able to deliver our subscribers every NHL game through the SIRIUS XM App and online in time for the playoffs," said President/Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN. "Our relationship with the NHL has enabled us to provide hockey fans with exceptional access to their favorite teams and everything happening around the league through their satellite radios. With fans now complementing their satellite radios with their handheld devices as a way to connect with their sport day to day as well, it is important to stream that unmatched content and give SIRIUS XM subscribers additional ways to access it."
"STANLEY CUP Playoff hockey features the most intense and dramatic action in sports, and now our fans can connect to every exciting second on their smartphones, mobile devices or online through the SIRIUS XM App and SiriusXM.com," said NHL Commissioner GARY BETTMAN. "This represents another great step forward for the NHL and SIRIUS XM subscribers everywhere."
