Amazon Prime subscribers can watch NHL games thanks to a new deal that gives the streaming service 10 broadcasts that will be simulcast on NBCSN.
The multiyear deal will provide 10 games throughout the 2017-18 NHL season to Amazon Prime members not subscribed to a traditional cable package, allowing them to watch every game of the season streamed through Amazon’s video player. The remaining NHL games will remain available to cable subscribers via NBCSN. Previously, NHL viewers would need cable subscription to watch live hockey games on NBC Sports app or website. Those who have subscribed to NBC’s streaming service have been able to access the broadcasts for last year’s playoffs, but after that exclusivity term ended, no other service was able to carry them outside of NBC’s own app or website.
As part of the deal, Amazon will also broadcast on Twitch highlight packages from all games for which it has exclusive rights to stream live. The first deal between an NHL team and a digital-only broadcaster was Twitter’s 2016 agreement with the league that gave fans access to bonus video and highlights from all of the pre-season games, as well as those that were featured on the NBC broadcast. However, this will be the first time a major US pro league has sold exclusive streaming rights to a digital platform.
