Another sports channel has been added to the streaming TV platform.
Sling TV has announced the addition of NHL Network to its Sports Extra package. This marks the first time that the channel has been made available by an over-the-top provider.
"With hockey season already in full-swing, diehard fans are donning their jerseys and Sling TV makes it easy and affordable to watch NHL Network wherever they are, so they don't miss a single slap shot," said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. "As the premier streaming destination for sports, we continue to offer fans nationwide the games they can't live without, whether they love soccer, college football, pro football, MLB playoffs, the NCAA basketball tournament and now NHL hockey."
NHL Network features live hockey games, special on-site coverage of NHL events, signature studio shows, interviews, highlights, expert analysis, behind-the-scenes features, player profiles, and international and amateur hockey competitions. With that said, as with standard NHL Network telecasts, games watched through Sling TV will still be subject to local blackouts depending on a user’s location.
NHL Network is now part of the Sling TV Sports Extra option, which is available for $5 per month with a Sling Orange subscription, or $10 per month with a Sling Blue subscription. The base Sling TV Orange plan costs $20 per month and features more than 25 channels, including Disney/ESPN stations. Meanwhile, the base Sling TV Blue plan costs $25 per month and features more than 40 channels, including FOX and NBC stations. Finally, customers can also opt to combine both plans for $40 per month.
In addition to the launch of NHL Network, Sling TV also recently announced plans to offer NFL Network and NFL Redzone.
