NHLCenter Ice Also Available to Time Warner Cable Subscribers
Morrisville (November 8, 2007) -Time Warner Cable announced today it has launched NHL Network on its Digital Sports and Game Tier on channel 330. Avid sports fans now have the ability to watch even more hockey games per week. For the month of November, Time Warner Cable will offer a FREE PREVIEW to all Digital Cable customers.
NHL Network launched in Canada in 2001. NHL Network will broadcast 50 live regular-season games (subject to local blackout restrictions) in addition to classic games, documentaries, instructional shows, highlights and more.
NHL Network's signature show NHL On The Fly airs nightly throughout the hockey season, and features up-to-the minute hockey information, live look-ins, extended highlights, overtime shootouts, real-time scores, interviews, pre- and post-game reports and news conferences. This programming will complement other hockey games which continue to be available on networks such as NBC, HDNet and Versus.
“We know that many of our customers are avid hockey fans,” said Eastern Carolina division president Tom Adams. “Some fans just can’t get enough games, and that’s why we’re particularly pleased to be able to offer both NHL Network and the NHL’s Center Ice Package. By giving customers several options, they’re better able to decide on the package that most closely fits their needs.”
NHL Center Ice provides fans the opportunity to watch up to 1,000 NHL live games, up to 40 per week, many of which will be offered in High-Definition. Select games from the Stanley Cup Playoffs (all games subject to local blackout) will also be available.
After the free preview, customers can subscribe to Time Warner Cable’s Digital Sports and Game Tier for $2.95 per month. Customers can call 1-866-4TWCNOW to place an order.
