World Championships are Streaming

Thanks to being a member if USA Hockey, I got a neat little email today. I’m reprinting the important part here:

World Championship Sports Network (WCSN.com) will stream the entire International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championships from Russia LIVE and on-demand, starting April 27 and continuing through May 13. Available only in the United States, ice hockey fans can follow Team USA as they compete in the largest ice hockey tournament of the year. WCSN will broadcast all 56 games of the Championships LIVE on www.wcsn.com. To order, click “subscribe” on the WCSN homepage, and for $4.95 a month or $49.95 a year, you will have access to these games and all WCSN broadcasts.

I don’t know how much other sport they carry, but for 4.95 in a few days, it seems like quite a deal. I’m sure there is something similar in Canada, but it’s finally time the opportunity to watch hockey that isn’t the NHL is available in the USA.

  1. Do US-based NHL teams ever offer Pay-Per-View? Surely you aren’t the only hockey fan in the States that would be willing to drop a few bucks in order to watch their home team.

    I’d watch the World Championships, but for some reason there aren’t any Canucks on any of the teams this year.

    I hear that several Avs players are playing though. Mua ha ha ha.

    Wow, that’s like the first time ever, isn’t it?

    BTW: Where is your bravado when the Canucks lose? Are you just a sunny day fan?

    I’d rather not talk about it!

    Have you been keeping an eye on Stastny and the US team? They tore through Belarus and Austria…

  4. Broadcasting is good enough if you are not a hot fan. But if you really are, you obviously understand that nothing can substitute for a real intrigue of world-class game and this terrific energy of packed stadium. By the way, if anyone wants, I can just hand out tickets for IIHF Championship 2009 at face value
