IIHF BROADCAST NEWS: Premier Sports IIHF World Championship 2013 Broadcast Times

Premier Sports will also be broadcasting the IIHF World Championships for the Top Division from May 3rd-19th 2013. Broadcast times will be posted as they become available.
Premier Sports is available on Sky Channel 428, for the price of £9.99 per month. It is not currently available on Virgin Media, but that is something that they are working towards – as is an online stream, which will be available for the same price (or free if you are already a Sky subscriber) when released in the coming weeks.
I believe that this is a great opportunity for ice hockey in the UK – I don’t remember ESPN or Sky Sports ever being quite so willing to push the ice hockey part of their programming schedule, but Premier Sports really seem to have made an effort since picking up the NHL during the broadcast rights fiasco in 2011/12.
This is a fantastic opportunity to view some high quality ice hockey on the international stage, and I hope all of you who are able will put your full support behind Great Britain and Premier Sports – the more support we give, the more hockey we get!
Thanks to Premier Sports for their co-operation in allowing IceNationUK the use of their logo, and the posting of their broadcast times.
