We’re getting reports that Viasat has come to a deal with AMI/Medge to air NHL games. Viasat had previously jumped the gun and announced a few weeks ago that they were airing games but this seems more definite.
What’s the difference this time around? NHL fans who are in Scandinavia and have NHL Gamecenter are now being told the service will no longer be available to them and they can watch games on Viasat.
This is all quite strange since it makes little sense to ban GCL. That’s what blackouts are for. We have e-mailed some NHL people and hope to hear back with something official soon.
