NHL Denies Talks with YouTube

From Staci D. Kramer of Paid Content:

The National Hockey League is denying a Bloomberg report from Seoul that it is in talks with YouTube (NSDQ: GOOG) to stream live games. Asked about the report based on comments by Google executives, an NHL spokesperson said that “while Google is a valued partner, the NHL has never had any discussions with YouTube to stream live games.”


The report from Seoul cited Gautam Anand, Google’s director of content partnerships for Asia Pacific, and Brian Suh, head of YouTube partnerships for Google Korea, and keyed off the success of last year’s streaming deal for the cricket Indian Premier League.
