The ratings-challenged National Hockey League will expand its Center Ice live games package to the Web next season in an aggressive online push that potentially freezes out subscribers to its cable TV-based Center Ice package with In Demand. "We need to be nimble in this space," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman tells the Wall Street Journal. The online Center Ice package will retail for $15/game or $169/season to NHL.com and all 30 teams' websites, with no announced discount (or value add) for subscribers to cable's Center Ice. Hockey's Web subscription service will be delivered via IPTV start-up NeuLion, whose backers are Oyster Bay's two Charles (Dolan, who founded Cablevision; and Wang, who founded Computer Associates).
Edit: Looks like in Canada, Shaw/Star Choice will have 200 games in HD. Hopefully D* can get a similar deal.

I think D* had a lot of HD hockey last year on the spot beams. For example, we had quite a bit of Ducks and Kings out here. The question is if they will make them available nationwide. They also have to compete for bandwidth with HD NBA games, and I'm guessing (sadly) that the NBA will win that battle. But once D11 goes up in January, I think they should have plenty of space for both NBA and NHL. So hopefully we'll get quite a bit.
