ESPN3 to Show KHL Games Featuring Alex Ovechkin

New, comments

Via the KHL's website:

The Kontinental Hockey League has reached an agreement with the US sports TV channel ESPN to broadcast games in the 2012/2013 KHL Championship. The games will be shown on the ESPN3 channel in the United States, Territories of the United States, and also in Great Britain.

ESPN3 reaches 73 million American households and devotes most of its output to live broadcasts of events, including college football, college basketball, the NBA, MLB, ICC (International Cricket Council) competitions and qualifying matches of FIFA tournaments.

During the first ten days of October, the channel will broadcast five KHL games. The planned schedule includes:

Dynamo Moscow vs Ak Bars on Oct. 3rd;

Lev vs SKA on Oct. 6th;

Slovan vs Dynamo Moscow on Oct. 7th;

CSKA vs SKA on Oct. 8th;

Lev vs Dynamo Moscow on Oct. 9th.

That's three games featuring Alex Ovechkin's Dynamo Moscow over the next week, which ain't so bad... until you remember that it's three games featuring Alex Ovechkin's Dynamo Moscow.

As Puck Daddy tells us, ESPN3 is "an online streaming service that's currently not available in the U.S. as a standalone digital cable channel."

Update: Um... or not. Yet.
