YouTube deals NHL Clips

nhl_tubeYouTube, Inc. recently bought out by Google, Inc. for $165 Million has just made a deal with the National Hockey League to post 2-5 minute clips of Hockey Games starting this month. Their hope is that if the NHL legally uploads clips to its own Hockey Channel then users will not be uploading hundreds of clips a day.

Under the deal, YouTube technology will help identify and remove illegally posted NHL clips as well as share revenue from advertising placed next to the content. The NHL will also have its own dedicated Web channel on the site.

Kevin Donahue, YouTube Vice President for Content, stated that they will be working with other professional sporting teams to try and come up with the same type of deal.

More information to come when I receive it.
