NeuLion, Inc. (TSX:NLN), a leading technology product and service provider that specializes in the digital video broadcasting, distribution and monetization of live and on-demand content to Internet-enabled devices, and the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC), conference home to the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey national champions, today announced a partnership extension through the 2021-22 season. The extension terms include several new features and supported devices on NCHC.tv, a direct-to-consumer digital video solution, for the coming 2017-18 season. NeuLion and the NCHC first collaborated in 2014 to create, build and launch NCHC.tv, making the NCHC the first single-sport NCAA conference to offer a fully integrated digital network with live and on-demand content.
As part of the partnership extension, NeuLion and the NCHC will continue to build upon the success of NCHC.tv with new mobile apps for iOS and Android, in addition to the already existing OTT apps with Apple TV and Roku. The iOS and Android apps will be available prior to the 2017-18 college hockey season. With the launch of the new iOS and Android apps, fans will have the ability to stream video through mobile or tablet devices to their televisions through Airplay and Chromecast, respectively.
