The ECHL on Friday announced the upcoming launch of ECHL.TV, powered by NeuLion, for the 2014-15 season. The new online streaming platform gives ECHL fans more access and options than ever before and games can be viewed on PC, iPhone and iPad all through a single user account.
“The ECHL’s partnership with NeuLion will offer our fans an unprecedented viewing experience of their favorite teams around the League”, said ECHL Senior Vice President of Business Operations, Ryan Crelin. “With over a third of the League broadcasting in High-Definition this Season, and coupled with exciting features such as quad view and full playback/pause functionality, the ECHL is propelling its digital offerings for 2014-15.”
Fans who take advantage of early-bird pricing through Oct. 19 will see a savings off of the normal pricing, which goes into effect on Oct. 20 through the remainder of the 2014-15 regular season. Separate packages for the 2015 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 season.
Also available are packages allowing fans to purchase every away game played by their favorite team during the 2014-15 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 756 games on the ECHL schedule during the 2014-15 season, as well as the library of current season archived footage to watch prior games all year round.
