NHL will be offering single team NHL GameCenter Live packages over a five year period starting with the 2015-16 season for a discount on the full league package.
Fans wanting to simply buy a single team package will received a discount of “at least” 20% on the cost of the full league package (which ran $159 for the 2014-15 season). There will also be a discount of an extra 17.25% on early bird, renewal, and full season packages for the upcoming season…
Blackout restrictions are still in place, because of course they are. So if you’re a cord-cutting Bruins fan in New England, don’t think you can watch all of the team’s games for something like $109 over six months. It won’t be that easy. But if you’re a Bruins fan in Colorado that wants to see them?

WSJ: You’ve discussed how important technology is to reach young fans. When will a 15-year-old in New York be able to watch a Yankees game on his phone?
Manfred: The best way to answer that question is to say the better part of my workday today was consumed by the topic of in-market streaming. It is particularly complicated in the context of a media market that is changing so quickly, but I do believe we will get a solution on in-market streaming in the relatively near future.
WSJ: Sometime this year?
Manfred: I hope so. I’d like to believe there will be games streamed at some point this year….
WSJ: Last year, MLB issued a set of guidelines for youth pitchers to try to address the root of pitching injuries, which continue to pile up. What’s next on the pitching-injury front?
Manfred: We are doing an in-depth study covering all the pitchers in six organizations, all the way up and down. It includes biomechanics, use, medical history, to try to determine what factors [cause injuries]. Is it the way people deliver? Is it a biomechanical issue that makes you more prone? Is it something in the anatomy that creates a predilection? Your basic scientific approach to figuring out what we’re seeing.

In a move that could affect nearly 40 percent of all broadcasts during the regular season, Major League Baseball and FOX have been in discussions that would see streamed games from FOX regional sports networks without any blackouts. Currently games played in a team’s television territory are subject to blackouts to those within the territory. For those watching games on television via MLB Extra Innings, the league’s out-of-market package, most can switch to the RSN where the game is originating. For those that stream games via MLB.TV to internet-enabled devices, there is no such recourse as the originating networks do not currently offer streaming options.
According to sources, the economics of the deal between MLB and FOX are in place, but challenges remain.
