Change is coming to the NHL. Not only does the league leave NBCUniversal the long-term US NBCUniversal of ESPN and Turner Sports, it also remembers to follow in a way it has never done before. As part of a seven-year deal, Turner himself is $ 200 million , the company has defended its rights in the 72-season season, including the annual Winter Classic Games. From the season 2021-2022, Warner is allowed to broadcast the game regularly HBO Max.
In a press conference, Jeff Zucker, chairman of WarnerMedia’s news and sports performance, said the company would focus on developing NHL programs for TNT and TBS before turning to HBO Max. “We can put the game there, but the first goal will be on Turner’s network,” he said . “If the buyer continues to play the game where we used to be, we’ll be there. But it’s not around and it won’t happen this year.”
Adding live hockey games to HBO Max is definitely a winning opportunity for WarnerMedia, but it’s not really surprising to see NHL trust the company with the right to search. Turner Sports oversees the NBA’s Digital division, which includes the NBA League Pass. With the help of players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic, the platform has seen 15% increase in international correspondence.
