Vegas Golden Knights Unveil KnightTime+: A New Era in Sports Streaming

The accessibility of KnightTime+ extends across various devices and platforms, ensuring fans can catch every moment of the Golden Knights' journey.

In a move that reflects the ever-evolving landscape of regional sports broadcasting, the Vegas Golden Knights have partnered with Scripps Sports to introduce their revolutionary KnightTime+ streaming service. This dynamic platform is set to livestream 69 regular season games during the upcoming NHL season, providing fans with an innovative way to engage with their favorite team.


KnightTime+ offers fans the flexibility to access the action in two convenient ways. For a comprehensive experience, a full-season pass to KnightTime+ can be acquired for just $69.99. Alternatively, fans can choose to purchase individual game streams for $6.99, tailoring their experience to their specific preferences.


The accessibility of KnightTime+ extends across various devices and platforms, ensuring fans can catch every moment of the Golden Knights' journey. The streaming app is readily available for download on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, iOS devices, and Roku-enabled devices. For those who prefer web-based viewing, a KnightTime+ web version is also available.


KnightTime+ aims to cater to the fervent fan base, even beyond the regular season. It will stream six of the Golden Knights' preseason games, providing an early taste of the action. Additionally, should the Golden Knights secure a spot in the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs, KnightTime+ will be the go-to destination for fans to witness their postseason pursuits. However, it's essential to note that nationally broadcasted Knights games through NHL partners ESPN and Turner Sports will not be available for streaming on KnightTime+.


To access this thrilling service, fans must be located within the Knights' television territory. This territory encompasses a wide geographical area, spanning Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and specific counties in California, Nebraska, and Arizona. The technology that powers KnightTime+ was developed by the renowned streaming technology provider, ViewLift, ensuring a seamless and high-quality viewing experience.


This move towards digital streaming is part of Scripps' broader strategy in the sports broadcasting arena. The E.W. Scripps Company, parent to Scripps Sports, has significantly expanded its presence in the U.S. sports market, particularly as competitors face challenges. Warner Bros. Discovery, for example, is poised to exit the regional sports network business by year-end, while Diamond Sports-owned RSNs are grappling with bankruptcy.


The trend towards streaming is not unique to the NHL; it's also sweeping across the NBA. The Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns are set to unveil their streaming services in the upcoming season, aligning with the changing landscape of regional media rights models.


In a world where technology and sports intersect, KnightTime+ represents a leap forward in delivering engaging, accessible, and immersive experiences to fans. With the Vegas Golden Knights leading the way, and the support of Scripps Sports, KnightTime+ promises to redefine how we watch and connect with our favorite teams in the digital age.
