North American Hockey League signs on with B2 Networks

The North American Hockey League announced today that it has formed a partnership for broadband broadcasting with B2 Networks. The new three-year agreement will provide coverage each season beginning with the NAHL Showcase in Blaine, Minn., and ending with the Robertson Cup Championship. The revolutionary broadband broadcasting network will be the exclusive home of live video for the NAHL.

Last season, B2 Networks broadcast games for the NAHL’s Alaska Avalanche, Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Texas Tornado, as well as every match of the Robertson Cup Championship. The new deal will cover every game of the league’s regular and postseason for the next three years.

“We are thrilled to be able to showcase our league via B2 Networks for the next three seasons,” said NAHL commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “The expansion of our agreement shows the strength of our partnership and how much the NAHL values the worldwide audience that B2 provides.”

Fans wanting to watch NAHL hockey games via B2 will need a high-speed Internet connection and Windows Media Player 9 or higher. Games will be sold on an individual basis with special viewing packages to be announced at a later date.

“Having worked with the NAHL last year, we are pleased to expand our partnership with them,” said B2 Networks senior vice president of sports programming Bruce LeVine. “We continue to be impressed with the NAHL and look forward to providing fans around the world with exciting hockey action through our network.”

B2 Networks is a premier provider of reliable and secure international television and video broadcasting systems, pay per view and billing systems. Its network of arenas, stadiums, local venues, billing systems and data centers are currently in use to distribute live events to personal computers, mobile devices and television screens around the world.
