NHL Live! ™, the NHL’s daily radio show—broadcast live on Sirius XM Radio, streamed on NHL.com and simulcast on NHL Network—will have daily programming at its regular time, Monday through Friday from noon – 2 p.m. ET (9 a.m. – 11 a.m. PT), to recap the previous night’s action and preview the day ahead. As well, NHL Live! will hit the airwaves on Sunday, Feb. 21 from noon – 2 p.m. ET (9 a.m. – 11 a.m. PT) to preview the day’s triple-header of rivalry matchups and potential medal-round pairings.
A special extra edition of NHL Live! will be broadcast, simulcast and streamed daily from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. ET (3 p.m. – 4 p.m. PT) during the Winter Games: NHL ‘Live!’ All Access Vancouver presented by Honda will analyze the early games and set up the prime time contests. Honda is the official vehicle of the National Hockey League.
On the two Thursdays during the Games, the Commissioner’s weekly radio show, NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman, will take over the NHL’s airwaves during its usual 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. ET (3 p.m. – 4 p.m. PT) slot. The show, which encourages fans to call in with questions for the Commissioner, will originate from downtown Vancouver.
