AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE LAUNCHES NEW STREAMING PLATFORM
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The American Hockey League today announced an enhanced partnership with HockeyTech and the launch of a brand-new streaming platform, AHLTV.
AHLTV will allow Penguins fans to watch all 76 of the club’s regular season games in high definition on desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile devices, as well as over-the-top (OTT) platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Android TV. The brand new streaming service aims to capture the excitement of Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza and help fans follow the team on the road.
“We are extremely excited to introduce AHLTV beginning this fall,” said David Andrews, President and CEO of the AHL. “AHLTV reflects the high standards that our fans and stakeholders have come to expect from the American Hockey League, and HockeyTech shares our vision of bringing the excitement of AHL hockey as an enhanced digital experience to fans who can’t make it to the rink.”
More than simply a means to watch games, AHLTV will use HockeyTech’s leading technology to integrate data and video to every viewer’s unique experience. Game feeds will be seamlessly combined with the AHL’s statistical database from LeagueStat, providing real-time scoring updates for fans as they watch, and viewers will also be able to capture and save their own highlight clips to share with other AHLTV users within the platform.
In addition to the high-definition video feeds, AHLTV games will also feature HockeyTech’s ViPr system of video production, with Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza and every other AHL arena outfitted with cameras that will capture the entire sheet of ice in one undistorted, panoramic view that allows mobile viewers control what they see by pinching, zooming and tilting their phone.
AHLTV subscriptions, which include live and archived games, begin at just $79.99 for the entire 2018-19 regular season. Fans can visit theahl.com/AHLTV now to register for a free AHLTV account and purchase 2018-19 subscriptions.
