ESPN+ And Hulu To Steam NHL Games Starting 2021-22 Season
ESPN+ to steam more than 1,000 live NHL games per season from 2021-22 season. ESPN will produce 75 national games per season to steam on both ESPN+ and Hulu.
Leading sports streaming service ESPN+ will deliver more than 1,000 out-of-market games available digitally.
ESPN NHL Deal also showcases that Hulu is a truly distinctive streaming product and marks the first major sports agreement to include exclusive, live sports rights on Hulu – bringing the NHL to Hulu’s 39.4 million subscription video on-demand (SVOD) customers.
The 75 games available to ESPN+ subscribers will be available to Hulu SVOD subscribers at no added cost as part of their subscription.
The agreement also comes as Disney is launching “ESPN+ on Hulu,” which will give Hulu subscribers with access to the service’s on-demand streaming library the choice to sign up for, and view, ESPN+ – including thousands of live events, and acclaimed original shows, series and documentaries – directly in the Hulu environment.
