    We all know UNH and Maine travel well, but that is like 10-20 percent of their fanbase making trips. Yes I know it's not 1999 anymore but you gotta figure the marquee sport at both schools would alone draw in enough subscribers to make this profitable.

    I try to go to as many away games as possible, but sometimes a Friday night game in Boston or especially Providence is not in the works. UVM or Maine forget it, not happening on a Friday night.

    How many of these schools have alumni bases spread around the country as well? They are literally leaving money on the table at this point, I don't understand why they keep trying the same square peg in the round hole of terrestrial TV

    So we go from basically nothing to 100 games? How is that possible?

    NESN figured out viewers will watch the same Behind the B episode only so many times?

    Pretty sure these will be on campus, not NESN productions.

    That's what I am thinking. Or maybe NESN produces x amount of the games. Regardless, this is great news.

    Who the F cares who produces it? It's college hockey on free TV. If we can handle ESPN ****ing up our postseason tournament we can handle campus productions of regular season games.

    Agreed. Just saying that NESN figures to increase viewers on Bs off nights at minimal cost.

    I had the opportunity to chat with some UNH Wildcat Productions staff this summer. They were surprised when I told them people watch their broadcasts on the internet. They must be stoked about the NESN deal.

    Some of those local productions (if that's what they'll be using) are actually pretty decent.

    I wonder if they'll go the ESPN3 route of having most of them be student broadcasts. I know for UMaine baseball games they use students.

    Some are frickin awful. Either way, better than following on Twitter, and maybe itíll be on at the bars.

    Hearing from sources that @hockey_east is very close to announcing its first league-wide digital platform to broadcast all menís and womenís games beginning this season. There are details to work out, but being told that CBS Sports will be the network hosting the platform.

    Not sure what the actual cost or pay structure will be but would expect it to be something similar to what the NCHC has with their https://NCHC.tv digital platform

    You'll still be able to stream them but I suspect there's a pricing package that's yet to be announced. I'm hoping it ends up at a number that's palatable for those of us who are used to paying $10 per game to stream road games to still be happy with it even though the home games would no longer be free.

    At the moment the website lists all games through 6 October as free.

    The 2 NU home games that are not on NESN should still be free streaming through the howlin huskies productions ... looked like 11/16 and 1/31 v. PC will be available through NU stream.

    The biggest questions I have is will the cbs stream be avail on multiple screens at the same time or just 1 screen? will games not at a Hockey East arena be available through there? (Like the games at SCS and Belfast)

    Were the games on the first two February Mondays intentionally omitted from the NESN/HEA schedule?

    Those aren't Hockey East games, so most likely.

    As someone else already pointed out, they're not on the NESN/HEA schedule since they're not HEA games. But NESN owns the rights to those particular games so they'll be televised on NESN anyway. Just not as part of the HEA package.

    There's a lot of non-conference games on the NESN package already. Just take a look at October:

    RPI at UMass
    Wisconsin at BC
    Lowell at Minnesota-Duluth
    Merrimack at Holy Cross
    Union at UMass
    Holy Cross at Northeastern
