Eagles fans can rejoice. The American Hockey League has departed ways with digital video provider NeuLion and has instead announced a deeper partnership with HockeyTech, a worldwide leader in hockey-related technologies and analytics. The new streaming platform — officially announced as AHLTV — will provide fans with an improved experience to watch AHL games throughout the 2018-19 regular season.
“We are extremely excited to introduce AHLTV beginning this fall,” said David Andrews, President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Hockey League. “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.”
The service is available at theahl.com/AHLTV and features five available packages.
- 2018-19 regular season - All teams, all games. ($79.99)
- 2018-19 regular season - One team, all games. ($59.99)
- 2018-19 regular season - One team, home or away. ($39.99)
- 2018-19 regular season - All games, one month. ($19.99)
- 2018-19 regular season - All games, one day. ($6.99)
All options include real-time scoring updates and provide viewers with the ability to capture and save their own highlight clips to share with other AHLTV users.
Games will also feature HockeyTech’s ViPr system in which every arena will be outfitted with a camera that will capture the ice in one high-definition, undistorted, panoramic view. Additionally, subscribers will have the ability to control what they see by pinching, zooming, and tilting their phone.
The Eagles kick off the 2018-19 regular season at home against the Chicago Wolves on Friday, October 5th.
