NHL Network has inked a deal with Charter Communications that will broaden the distribution base of the fledgling channel to more than 80 million homes. Under terms of the deal, Charter will launch the channel on its cable systems next month. NHL Network previously reached carriage deals with Cablevision, Comcast, Cox Communications, DirecTV, Dish Network and Time Warner Cable. NHL Network offers programming similar to that of its sister channel in Canada, where the network launched in 2001. The outlet will show 50 live games in high-definition on the HD feed of the channel over the course of the NHL season. Games will be subject to local blackout.
