| 12 August 2015
SiriusXM, SiriusXM Canada and the National Hockey League (NHL) today announced they have extended a multi-year agreement to offer SiriusXM subscribers across North America live game broadcasts through the 2021-22 NHL season.
SiriusXM will continue to broadcast live NHL games across North America from the pre-season through the Stanley Cup Final. In addition to play-by-play broadcasts, SiriusXM NHL Network Radio will continue to offer news and events from around the League as well as player, coach and executive features, game analysis and interviews from hockey broadcasters.
Those subscribers with SiriusXM All Access will continue to have access to all NHL programming on the SiriusXM app and online at SiriusXM.com and SiriusXM.ca.
"Our long-standing partnership with SiriusXM has always been focused on making the game accessible to fans," said John Collins, NHL COO. "Our expanded partnership will ensure we can continue to deliver fans across North America more programming and more games – from pre-season puck drop to the final buzzer – for years to come."
The extension of the broadcast agreement with the NHL is part of SiriusXM's comprehensive coverage of major sport leagues, including the NFL, NASCAR, MLB, NBA and the PGA Tour.
