âHaving 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,â? said Keith Ritter, President, NHL Interactive CyberEnterprises. âThis 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.â?
“Of course, what they are doing is not legal,” said [MLB Advanced Media’s General Counsel Michael] Mellis. “We and other leagues have formed a group to study the issue and plan our response.
