GRAND FORKS - The National Collegiate Hockey Conference rolled out a new streaming network - NCHC TV - that will allow fans to watch nearly every conference game on the web or on a mobile device.
Fans can purchase a package that streams a single team’s home and road games for $74.95 or a conference-wide package that makes games from all teams available for $81.95 at NCHC.tv.
Only a limited number of games won’t be available: University of Denver home games, nonconference road games and contests that are nationally televised by CBS Sports Network. The rest will be available at NCHC.tv.
Denver home games aren’t available due to a previous contract the school signed.
The package also will feature on-demand video content including games, game highlights and press conferences. First-round NCHC playoff games are included in the packages.
For University of North Dakota fans that have already purchased UND Insider packages, their accounts will automatically be changed to the conference package at no charge and it will be honored for the duration of their original subscription.
CBS Sports will once again serve as the league’s TV home. CBS will broadcast 14 games - 11 regular season and three postseason - beginning Jan. 9, according to sources.
The official league TV announcement is expected to come next week.
“This significant step forward is a credit to the vision of our member schools for wanting to create something that distinguishes our conference,” NCHC commissioner Josh Fenton said.
