American Hockey League’s new streaming platform helps launch 2018-19 season this week
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League today announced that its brand-new streaming platform, AHLTV, will officially launch with a free weekend of AHL games to begin the 2018-19 season.

The AHL’s opening weekend begins with nine games on Friday night including the debut of the league’s newest team, the Colorado Eagles. The AHLTV freeview continues with 14 games on Saturday and three more on Sunday, and concludes with a Canadian Thanksgiving matinee: the Toronto Marlies’ Calder Cup banner-raising home opener.
In conjunction with HockeyTech, the AHL announced the creation of AHLTV last month. AHLTV will feature live streaming of every AHL game in high definition on desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile devices, as well as over-the-top (OTT) platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Android TV.

More than simply a means to watch games, AHLTV will use HockeyTech’s leading technology to form a full digital ecosystem in which data and video are integrated to create an experience unique to each user. Game feeds will be seamlessly combined with the AHL’s statistical database from LeagueStat, providing real-time scoring updates for fans as they watch, and viewers will also be able to capture and save their own highlight clips to share with other AHLTV users within the platform.
