The National Hockey League has reached a new TV rights deal with Turner Sports, and as part of it, games will air on HBO Max. The press release announcing the deal mentions that live broadcasts and simulcasts will come to HBO Max, meaning you can flip between The Sopranos and the NHL, if you want to.
This appears to be the first live sports programming on HBO Max, but it’s not the first deal of its type across streaming. NBC’s Peacock service has deals for the Premier League, WWE, and the Olympics.
