News Releases


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - The American Hockey League and B2 Networks announced today the introduction of B2 Power Play, a new service that will provide complete coverage of AHL action to fans on a worldwide basis.

Included in the B2 Power Play package are access to watch every regular-season game of your favorite AHL team, free access to the AHL Game of the Week and exclusive weekly highlights. And in addition to broadband viewing on personal computers, B2 Power Play will also be available on the new B2toGO network, allowing fans to watch American Hockey League games on cell phones and other wireless devices.

Today’s announcement marks another step forward in the partnership between the AHL and B2 Networks. Last season more than 1,000 AHL games were broadcast on the network to hockey fans around the world, including the 2006 Rbk Hockey AHL All-Star Classic and every game of the 2006 Calder Cup Playoffs. As the 2006-07 season approaches, AHL fans now have more options than ever to follow their favorite team.

Fans interested in B2 Power Play can go to for sign-up.

“We are very excited to announce B2 Power Play as we enter the second year of our partnership with B2 Networks,” said Chris Nikolis, AHL vice president of sales and marketing. “We hope AHL fans around the world will continue to make the AHL on B2 one of the ways they stay close to the excitement and energy of AHL hockey.”

B2 Power Play will go on sale Friday, Sept. 22. A full regular-season package costs $160 billed in eight installments, or fans can pay for the regular season in full for $150. Any fan purchasing B2 Power Play before Oct. 1 will receive a rate of only $140, a savings of more than 70 percent off the individual game price. B2toGO, a service delivering live games and highlights to cell phones and hand held PDA’s, will be available for purchase on Oct. 2 for a full regular-season price of $56 over eight installments or $50 if paid in full. Fans who purchase B2 Power Play will be eligible to add B2toGO for only an additional $25.

Individual broadband games are still available for the same $6 price as last season.

“This new ticket packaging is a great way to begin the second year of our partnership with the AHL,” said Greg P. Bell, B2 Networks owner and CEO. “AHL fans made it clear that they wanted greater flexibility in the way games were purchased. Now they have multiple options plus premium services such as exclusive highlights and video to cell phones.”

The American Hockey League’s 71st regular season begins on Wed., Oct. 4, as 27 teams begin competition for the prestigious Calder Cup.
