The ECHL announced on Tuesday that early bird pricing for the 2016-17 season on ECHL.TV packages is now available, and that all ECHL games will be broadcast in High Definition for the upcoming season through this platform.
The online streaming platform gives ECHL fans more access and options than ever before and games can be viewed on PC, iPhone, iPad and Android devices all through a single user account.
As part of the early bird pricing, All Access passes, allowing fans the opportunity to watch all games during the 2016-17 season, are now available for under $250.
Early bird pricing is in effect now through Oct. 23. In addition, all fans will have a chance to preview the ECHL.TV service on Friday, Oct. 21 as part of Free Friday. All 10 games on the ECHL schedule that evening will be available for viewing free of charge by entering code FREEFRIDAY on the ECHL.TV login/ purchase screen.
Fans who take advantage of early-bird pricing through Oct. 23 will see a savings off of the normal pricing, which goes into effect on Oct. 24 through the remainder of the 2016-17 regular season. Separate packages for the 2017 Kelly Cup Playoffs will be announced in April.
Eight packages are available for fans to purchase on ECHL.TV. In addition to single live and archived games, fans will have the ability to purchase five or 10-game packages, allowing them to pre-pay in advance and select the games they want to watch during the regular season.
Also available are packages allowing fans to purchase every away game played by their favorite team during the 2016-17 season, or a Team – Home & Away pass which allows them to watch all 72 games. Fans can also subscribe to the “All Access” Pass which includes viewing of all 972 games on the ECHL schedule during the 2016-17 season, as well as the library of current season archived footage to watch prior games all year round.
