Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE Delivers New Ways to Watch the Game
Rodgers has secured a five-year partnership with Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM),the media and technology company of Major League Baseball. With this new deal, “Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE” will still provide hockey fans with the same wealth of content available on the app, but on a new interface with an improved video experience and personalization options that put the focus on the user’s favorite team. The entire suite of new features will deliver simple and easier access to the games, highlights, news, and stats that fans want.
“We are always looking to improve the user experience so fans can get closer to all the hockey action they want quickly and easily on Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE,” says Scott Moore, President, Sportsnet and NHL Properties, Rogers. “The new features and updates available through the MLBAM partnership are another way we are delivering on our promise to provide an unmatched experience to fans so they can consume the content they love – and choose – at anytime, anywhere, and on any device.”
“This partnership with Rogers extends the reach of these new products for hockey fans, further amplifying how they can follow their favorite teams and players through the always-connected technology they now expect,” says Bob Bowman, MLB President, Business & Media.
Enhancements include, but are not limited to, support for iOS9 including multitasking and picture-in-picture, sharper HD video quality, better camera synchronization, and team-centric customizations.
Outside of the country, NHL GameCenter LIVE is now NHL.TV. The service will continue to be named Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE in Canada. It is still accessible within the Rogers NHL App available in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores, within the NHL App on game consoles and connected devices, and at NHL.com/TV in a web browser.
Transitioning to the new version of the app will be seamless on all platforms, simply requiring existing users to sign back in with their MyRogers login, or “restore purchase” if their subscription was purchased in-app. There are no changes to pricing and packaging options.
Rogers customers will continue to receive exclusive access to GamePlus, the innovative experience within Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE that includes revolutionary camera angles and bonus video content. Rogers cable customers with subscriptions to all sports channels (Sportsnet, TVA Sports, TSN, and RDS) can access every regular season and post-season game within Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE without any blackouts.
