FanDuel Sportsbook to live stream NHL games
March 3, 2020
The FanDuel Sportsbook will now offer live streaming of NHL games in the US directly within the app as part of a new partnership with IMG Arena.
The FanDuel Sportsbook will feature up to two live streams each day throughout the NHL regular season, viewable in states where legal sports betting is available to customers who have a funded sportsbook account or placed a wager on the event.* IMG Arena recently secured the rights to provide legal U.S. sports betting operators with live streams of select out of market National Hockey League games.
Live streaming by legal sports betting operators is popular in Europe and around the world. In 2019, 56 million unique viewers around the globe collectively watched more than 10.5 billion minutes of IMG Arena content.
“As we continue to innovate and expand nationwide, the ability to further enhance the live game and live betting experience is increasingly important to our customers,” said Niall Connell, GM and SVP, FanDuel Group. “Our goal is to become a one-stop-shop for all sports and betting content, and live streaming professional sports like hockey is one of the many ways we are reaching that goal.”
