ONE World Sports Acquires KHL Rights
By Community | February 17, 2014
ONE World Sports has secured the broadcast rights for the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
The high-definition coverage starts with four regular-season games in February, abortion immediately following the Olympic Winter Games, and continues in April with live or same-day coverage of the league’s two conference finals and championship series. KHL content will be distributed across all the network’s platforms, spanning the linear channel and broadband and mobile via the network’s “Watch ONE World Sports” app.
“The addition of the KHL provides some of the best hockey the world has to offer to the ONE World Sports’ line-up” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, president and CEO of ONE World Sports. “With a significant number of NHL alumni in the KHL, we anticipate that our coverage will attract hockey fans across North America. Additionally, our multiplatform rights give those fans the opportunity to watch the games and highlights on the screen of their choice.”
