NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball is debuting a new website and apps — for ice hockey.
Under a deal reached last summer, baseball's digital business has taken over streaming and app development for the National Hockey League.
On Monday, the NHL will start offering a cheaper subscription package, NHL Premium, with six-minute recaps and live video for the final five minutes of most games, plus any overtime and shootouts. Premium will cost $3 a month, compared with $25 for full games.
In both cases, hometown games will typically be unavailable to preserve television rights.
You won't get the type of real-time tracking available for baseball, though. For instance, one graphical feature for baseball shows where and how fast each pitch lands. NHL officials say the league has been exploring tracking technologies.
