- B2 Networks in conjunction with the ECHL today announced the 2007-08 Power Play Season Pass, a new package that will provide fans with complete coverage of their favorite team on a worldwide basis. B2 Networks Power Play allows subscribers to watch their team, home and away, LIVE for every regular season contest at a savings of more than 60 percent off the individual game purchase price.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the ECHL. To celebrate the historic season, the league is holding a special opening night on October 18, 2007 when two of the ECHL's original teams, the Wheeling Nailers and Johnstown Chiefs face off. All fans purchasing a B2 Power Play pass will be able to watch this game free of charge,
"We are pleased to extend and grow our relationship with B2 Networks for the benefit of our fans across the entire ECHL," said ECHL Commissioner Brian McKenna. "On this our 20th Anniversary Season, we are proud that B2 Networks will offer a season pass to allow fans to catch every game for their favorite team. We invite all ECHL fans to join us on October 18 as we kickoff the 20th Anniversary of the ECHL with a special stand-alone game between the Wheeling Nailers and the Johnstown Chiefs."
B2toGo Mobile Highlights, another new service offered to ECHL fans this season, uses new revolutionary B2 Networks technology to provide fans with even greater access to their teams. The morning after each game, subscribers will get highlights of their favorite team in action delivered to their mobile phones and computers. The new technology allows fans the ability to catch any action they missed from the night before on their phones or computers anywhere around the globe.
ECHL fans may purchase a B2 Power Play Season Pass for any individual league team, including all 72 regular season contests, for only $140.
