    Default NHL goes top shelf with Slingbox, to let users share video clips online

    NHL Gives Fans the Power to Pick Their Favorite Hockey Footage To Share with Others through Clip+Sling™ Technology

    NEW YORK (June 6, 2007) – In a first for all major professional sports leagues, the National Hockey League (NHL) is partnering with Sling Media, Inc. around the company’s upcoming Clip+Sling technology. The NHL and Sling Media have signed an agreement whereby Sling Media’s Clip+Sling technology will enable all current and future Slingbox™ customers to clip and share live or recorded segments of NHL programming online with friends, family and others.


    “Having the most tech-savvy fans of all major professional sports, who also tend to be early adopters of new technology, makes offering NHL content through Clip+Sling a natural fit,” said Keith Ritter, President, NHL Interactive CyberEnterprises. “This partnership expands the visibility of our NHL games online and we are excited and proud to be the first sports league to offer this service to our fans.”


    “The NHL has consistently been at the forefront of embracing new technologies to empower and grow their fan base and we are incredibly proud to have them as our first sports league partner,” said Jason Hirschhorn, President of Sling Media’s Entertainment Group. “Clip+Sling makes it extremely easy for fans to share a priceless moment with others, dramatically changing the way consumers socialize around TV. In addition, it enables content creators to build new communities as well as new revenue and marketing opportunities around their content.”


    Clip+Sling is a feature that will be built into Sling Media’s SlingPlayer™ software, giving Slingbox owners the ability to record and share portions of content with just a few short clicks. While customers will need a Slingbox to create and share clips, the clips posted to Sling Media’s forthcoming video destination site will be accessible by anyone. NHL clips posted to this site will be searchable and categorized by NHL as a league and NHL clubs to help users navigate through clips with ease. In addition, the NHL will also make its own long-form and short-form content available on the video destination site.


    Clip+Sling is currently in private beta, with the company accepting applications for inclusion in a broader public within the United States and Canada later this summer. Individuals interested in applying for inclusion in the broader public beta can sign up at www.lebowski37.com.


    About the NHL


    The National Hockey League, founded in 1917, is the second-oldest of the four major professional team sports leagues in North America. Today, the NHL consists of 30 Member Clubs, each reflecting the League’s international makeup, with players from more than 20 countries represented on team rosters. According to a Simmons Market Research study, NHL fans are younger, more educated, more affluent, and access content through digital means more than any other sport. The NHL entertains more than 100 million fans each season in-arena and through its partners in national television (VERSUS, NBC, TSN, CBC, RDS, RIS, NASN, NHL Network and HDNet) and radio (Westwood One, Sirius and XM Radio). Through the NHL Foundation, the League’s charitable arm, the NHL raises money and awareness for Hockey Fights Cancer, Hockey’s All-Star Kids and NHL Diversity, and supports the charitable efforts of all NHL players.

    Here's a link explains the pros and cons of the slingbox.

    Sounds like it's only good for someone who lives alone, because the remote user monopolizes the choice of channel viewing.

    Thumbs up

    I have the Slingbox Tuner and it is the greatest thing since SPAM eggs and rice. They have three different versions. The version I have goes in between the cable and the cable box via a RF coax connection. All that is needed is the Slingbox, the cable and a wireless router. Once set up you can watch your cable TV on your desktop computer that is hard wired to the router. By installing the software on any other computer/ laptop that connects to the network (wired or wireless) you can also watch your Slingbox. With the Slingbox software installed on your laptop, anywhere you can get a Wifi connection you can watch your Slingbox. But wait it gets better.

    If you have a cell phone that runs Windows Pocket PC, Smartphone or Palm OS, you can install the Slingplayer on it and watch your Slingbox on your cellphone. This uses your internet access so you should an unlimited data plan.

    As far as who has control of the TV, with my setup I go straight from the cable into the Slingbox by passing my cable box. This way the wife can be watching the cable box and I can watch something different on the Slingbox. You can only use one Slingplayer at a time though. So if someone is watching Slingplayer on the laptop, you cannot watch it on the wired PC or cellphone.

    Overall this is one of the greatest inventions for watching TV. If you want more information here is the link: http://us.slingmedia.com/page/home

    I have been using this since last year to watch all the Kings games when the wife drags me out of the house. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
