Grit TV streaming on the Grit app is slated to debut in 2019, according to a press release from the NHL Players’ Association.
The NHLPA says the app will allow fans to stream their own and other sports content from their smartphone and tablet devices.
“This is a great opportunity for Grit fans to get the best hockey content and entertainment, including highlights, live scores, replays, interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes content,” NHLPA Executive Director Chris Guegler said in a press statement.
“The Grit apps will provide fans with the most extensive and engaging sports experience possible on the most popular smartphone and iPad app.”
Fans will be able to watch the NHL on the app, with the new content being streamed via the GTV app.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Grit, the NHLPA, and the NHL as we launch our new GTV App this fall,” NHL Executive Vice President and General Manager John Davidson said in the press release.
“In 2018, the GTS app was the most downloaded app in the NHL, and it’s clear that this partnership is going to grow, and we are confident that the NHL is a leader in this area.”
The Grit stream will be available for both the GDT and GDT Pro apps.
GDT players will be required to sign a waiver before being able to stream the GUT app, while GDT PRO players will have to sign the waiver before they can access GUT.
GUT has been in development for several years, and is expected to debut later this year.
The league will be releasing the new app with an announcement to be made in March.
“GritTV has been an integral part of our growth and success, and Grit is a tremendous partnership that will allow the NHL to continue to grow its mobile reach in an even more efficient and efficient way,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in his release.
