HockeyTech launches HockeyTV
September 27, 2016
HockeyTech, the official technology partner of the NAHL, NA3HL and NAPHL, today unveiled HockeyTV, the definitive online destination to watch amateur ice hockey. By going to HockeyTV.com, viewers now have the most powerful online solution ever for viewing, archiving and managing amateur hockey footage—from individual plays to complete games.
HockeyTech acquired FASTHockey.com last year as a foundation for its new vision of online hockey—HockeyTV. It takes on-ice action from the rink tolaptops, desktops, mobile devices and other OTT devices such as Roku.
More than 20,000 games will be streamed live on HockeyTV this season from hundreds of elite amateur leagues and tournaments. The HockeyTV on-demand library is packed with more than 100,000 games of ice hockey action spanning the last decade.
HockeyTV includes significant new features and benefits for leagues, teams and fans alike:
• A new, modern interface that radically simplifies navigation to both live games and the HockeyTV on-demand library from laptops, desktops, mobile devices and OTT devices
• Easy in-game navigation, with fully-functional DVR-like controls for rewind, fast forward, slow motion and more
• Game roster integration, providing easy access to player information while viewing the action
• For teams and league personnel, HockeyTV is integrated with HockeyTech’s industry-leading scouting and operations technologies.
“With HockeyTV, we’ve released the definitive destination to view ice hockey,” said Stu Siegel, HockeyTech founder and CEO and former owner of the NHL’s Florida Panthers. “While today we webcast tens of thousands of amateur games each season, we hope to bring our viewers North American and European professional hockey in the near future.”
With its cutting-edge over-the-top (OTT) delivery and use of industry-leading content-delivery networks, HockeyTV is freed from the limitations of traditional broadcasting, paving the way for incredible viewing innovations.
“With HockeyTV, the league relationships, video assets and industry-leading technologies and information resources are in place to radically change how people watch ice hockey,” said Marc Ruskin, the president of HockeyTech. “We will continuously upgrade and enhance the viewing experience with an ongoing stream of amazing new features.”
