Sony Computer Entertainment America and the National Hockey League today announced that NHL GameCenter Live, an online service offering streaming video of live games, is available now on the PlayStation 3, an exclusive offer for PS3 users making it the first and only gaming console to stream live hockey games in High Definition.
NHL GameCenter Live subscribers can now stream live out-of-market regular season and select playoff game broadcasts in HD by downloading the NHL GameCenter application on the PS3 system. In addition to offering live hockey games, NHL GameCenter Live also allows subscribers to watch full-length and condensed replays of the current season games they missed (48 hours after they air, no blackouts) and relive NHL history with unlimited access to over 500 classic games from NHL Vault.
PS3 users that do not have a subscription to NHL GameCenter Live will still have access to a wide range of NHL content through the NHL GameCenter application. Fans will have access to features such as post-game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats and profiles, and full NHL scoreboard.
