As people are gearing up for the start of the NHL season, with many having subscribed to either Premier Sports on Sky or have subscribed to NHL’s Game Centre Live (GCL), there’s one thing that you should note. I saw this on Twitter on the @UKNHL feed that games that are shown live on Premier Sports will NOT be available live on GCL. The games shown live on Premier Sports will be available on GCL 48 hours after the event.
Premier Sports, currently only available to Sky customers, has a four year exclusive agreement for NHL rights in the UK and aims to show up to 15 games per week. Obviously as the channel is not available to Virgin Media customers, many have turned to GCL to receive their dose of NHL action.
For the opening weekend, the following games will not be available on GCL:
- Penguins vs Flyers
- Maple Leafs vs Canadiens
- Avalanch vs Wild (joined in progress)
- Blackhawks vs Kings
- Captials vs Lightning
- Flyers vs Sabres
A full list of games that will NOT be available live on GCL can be found on the Premier Sports website at www.premierpsorts.tv
