Of somewhat offbeat note this evening:
AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE PARTNERS WITH HOCKEYTECH TO LAUNCH NEW STREAMING PLATFORM
AHLTV to debut this fall on all-new platform designed to optimize the viewing experience
The American Hockey League today announced an enhanced partnership with HockeyTech and the launch of a brand-new streaming platform, AHLTV.
The creation of AHLTV marks the latest expansion of the American Hockey League’s long-standing relationship with HockeyTech, which also provides real-time scoring and statistical services for the AHL and its 31 teams and hosts the AHL’s official website and mobile app.
“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.”
“HockeyTech is proud to launch AHLTV in a true partnership with the American Hockey League,” said HockeyTech founder and CEO Stu Siegel. “Using the most advanced, cutting-edge digital technologies, AHL fans will have the most innovative multimedia hockey viewing experience available worldwide.”
