B2 Begins Partnership with the IHL

The
International Hockey League (IHL) announced that it has signed a three-year
agreement with B2 Networks to show every game of the league’s regular and post
season on the revolutionary broadband broadcasting network.

“We
are thrilled to be able to showcase our league via B2 Networks for the next
three seasons,” stated Paul L. Pickard, IHL President/CEO/Commissioner.
“The IHL is putting an emphasis on intense rivalries and exciting and
physical play on the ice, so we think that B2’s global audience will enjoy our
league’s hockey action for years to come.”

Fans
wanting to watch IHL hockey games via B2 will need a high-speed Internet
connection and Windows Media Player 9 or higher. Games will be able to be
accessed through www.ihl-hockey.com and will be sold on an individual basis
with special viewing packages to be announced at a later date.

“Having
previously worked with many of the IHL’s executives and member clubs, I know
that they will have a great product to offer the fans during their inaugural
season this fall,” said Richard Brosal, B2 Networks Executive Vice
President for Business Operations and Marketing. “We look forward to
providing fans around the world with exciting IHL hockey action through our
network.” For more information about B2 Networks, visit www.B2Now.com.
