NBCSN launches unique broadcast and streaming partnership with Notre Dame hockey

NBC has long been known as the home of Notre Dame football. NBC and their NBC Sports Network have also become known as the home for hockey. Starting tonight, you'll see sort of marriage of those two well known NBC-related brands.

In a move that was announced years ago but never gone into detail upon, NBCSN will become the home of Notre Dame hockey, in much the same way as NBC is the home of the Fighting Irish football team. Over the next three season, NBCSN will air 12 Notre Dame home games. In an interesting addition to the deal, eight other Fighting Irish home games will air exclusively on the NBC Sports Live Extra app. It joins select EPL matches as part of the programming NBC has built up solely for their streaming app.

NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra, overall, will broadcast about 30 college hockey games this season. Between NBCSN, CBSSN, BTN and a little help from ESPN and Fox affiliated networks, the sport is really beginning to come into its own. However, I must express a little annoyance that the conference who produced both participants in college hockey's national championship game, the ECAC, are largely left untelevised.
