Vegas Golden Knights have provided an update on the team’s new direct-to-consumer (DTC) streaming service, confirming that it will launch in time for the start of the new season.’

Earlier this year, Golden Knights announced a broadcast deal with Scripps Sports. As part of that agreement. Scripps Sports will produce the games and distribute them via the local station KMCC-TV over-the-air, on pay TV, and on connected TV platforms.

At the same time as announcing that deal, Vegas Golden Knights also confirmed that a new DTC streaming option would be coming, and more details on that streaming service have now been announced.

Thanks to a new multi-year partnership with ViewLift, the new Vegas Golden Knights streaming service will offer NHL fans in Nevada and surrounding states in the team’s territory access to all locally-broadcast games.

According to the announcement, the new service will be available on major devices including Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Vizio, and Xbox, as well as iOS and Android devices and directly via the web.

Our alliance with ViewLift and Scripps Sports enables our fans throughout the region to enjoy the action on whatever device they choose and from wherever they are,” said Vegas Golden Knights team president and CEO, Kerry Bubolz. “We will give our fans every possible option to interact with the team and watch hockey live and on demand. It’s essential that our TV and digital services reflect our Stanley Cup winning on-ice performance, and I know that with Scripps Sports and ViewLift we will achieve this.”

While a firm launch date wasn’t confirmed, the new service is expected to launch in time for the opening of the new season on September 24. At present, it remains unclear how much the new streaming service will cost.

Those details, along with some of the new features that Golden Knights fans can expect with the new service, are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and ahead of the start of the new season.
