Comcast's broadband subscribers to view NHL games.
Live National Hockey League (NHL) action is to be streamed exclusively over the Internet by Comcast (Nasdaq:CMCSA), a provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services.
During the 2005-2006 season, Comcast's 7.7m+ high-speed Internet customers will be able to view hockey action live from their PCs. Broadband users will be able to view two live games each day, up to a maximum of 300 during the season, starting from 5 October. The live NHL games can be accessed on Comcast.net in the Sports channel and content including a fantasy hockey league, league leaders, scoreboards and standings will be added during the season.
Hockey Live Video Player, a Comcast-branded Windows Media Player, will be used for feed. More than 25 regular season games will be broadcast by Comcast in high definition, along with various playoff games and access to archives of streamed games will be available for 48 hours following the original broadcast.
