Online Hockey Streaming Platform Enhances the MHL Fan Experience – Free Weekend Announced
BOSTON, MA (February 22, 2017) – HockeyTV, a service of HockeyTech and the definitive destination to watch hockey online, today announced an extension to their broadcast agreement with the Maritime Hockey League (MHL), broadcasting all league games and providing hockey fans with a free weekend of MHL hockey.
HockeyTV is a feature-rich platform used by hockey scouts, recruiters, coaches, players, and fans for streaming, archiving, and managing live and on-demand elite hockey content. The MHL is a twelve-team Junior A hockey league based in the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Currently in their 50th season of operation, the MHL has captured a combined nine Regional (Fred Page Cup) and National (RBC Cup) Championships over the past 21 seasons, while helping promote dozens of players each season to the university and professional ranks.
The extension of the relationship between HockeyTV and the MHL allows fans of the league and the sport of ice hockey to continue to watch every game played at home or on the road from their computers, tablets, smartphones, and streaming devices, now with more teams being upgraded to high-definition broadcasts. For MHL players, this extension will continue to foster the type of exposure that helps young hockey players to get noticed by junior teams at the next level, colleges and universities, and professional hockey organizations.
“The MHL is both proud and excited to continue our partnership with HockeyTV,” said Brian Whitehead, President of the MHL. “Over the past several seasons, HockeyTV has played a vital role in increasing the exposure of our players as well as the profile of our league. The MHL has greatly benefited from our strong relationship with HockeyTV and look forward to solidifying this relationship even deeper in the seasons ahead.”
As a way to celebrate this partnership extension, HockeyTV and the MHL have also announced a free weekend of all league broadcasts on HockeyTV. Fans can enjoy a full weekend of ten MHL games at no cost from March 10 to March 12, 2017.
“Offering a free weekend of MHL games on HockeyTV is a small token of our appreciation for the league, its teams, and its fans,” said Marc Ruskin, President of HockeyTech. “This promotion represents an opportunity for both HockeyTV and the MHL to showcase our elite products.”
Each day during the weekend features a marquee high-definition broadcast. Viewers can create an account on HockeyTV using just their name and basic information with no credit card required.
