Every NHL Team, Every Game Now On XM Satellite Radio
As the exclusive satellite radio home for the National Hockey League, XM is expanding its coverage to provide every game for every NHL team.
NHL fans across the continental U.S. can hear their favorite teams on XM throughout the season, wherever they live.
XM is expanding from six NHL play-by-play channels to nine in order to offer comprehensive coverage of the league. Games can be heard on XM channels 204-209 and channels 237-239.
“For the first time, NHL fans can hear every game for every team on satellite radio,” said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming, XM Satellite Radio. “You can listen to your games all season long on XM, even if you live far away from your favorite team.”
The 2007-2008 NHL season starts this weekend as the Anaheim Ducks begin defense of their first Stanley Cup championship against the Los Angeles Kings. The Ducks and Kings will play Saturday and Sunday at the O2 Arena in London, marking the first time that the NHL has played regular-season games in Europe. The games will air live on XM channel 205.
In addition to carrying the full schedule of NHL games, XM is the exclusive carrier of the 24-hour hockey talk radio channel NHL Home Ice, located at XM channel 204. NHL Home Ice offers the latest hockey news, commentary, call-in shows, interviews, and other special programming, 365 days a year.
The 2007-2008 NHL season is XM’s third season to carry NHL games, and its first as the exclusive satellite radio network of the league. XM and the NHL have a long-term broadcast partnership that extends through 2015.
