Question.hockey on T.V in Germany?

I am possibly going over to live in Germany by December at the latest,a small town called Dachenhausen.Will i be able to get any channels that have N.H.L hockey on them or at least German league games? is it possible to purchase the NhL package through cable there maybe? I really can't do without hockey for a year,it's just not possible at all.

any answers would be appreciated.Thanks

The NHL will be broadcasted on Premiere (pay TV) and NASN (pay TV too).
You´ll find NHL, NBA, MLB, Bundesliga soccer and different other stuff on Premiere. (www.premiere.de) You´ll need a receiver to get Premiere.

NASN will host the NHL, MLB, NFL, AFL, CFL, Nascar and some other stuff. (www.nasn.de) NASN is available through cable (depends on where Dachenhausen is, though) and mostly in English.

NASN:

Here’s the rundown on NASN's National Hockey League Coverage

- We have coverage of up to 175 games a season, that’s 7 live or as-live games a week.
- Live double headers each and every Saturday from the legendary Canadian Sports night show, Hockey Night in Canada.
- Great highlights with NHL On The Fly: Final three times a week.
- Live and exclusive coverage from the NHL Playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals

Premiere:
umm - dunno, but i think 2-4 games live per week., Games are shown again often on afternoon or in the morning.

I think Premiere has something like two NHL and two DEL games (basically one game per gameday) per week.

It depends on which cable-company is responsible for your area or if its even by satellite. Kabel Deutschland, the largest company, has NASN in a package for €9 per month.

Premiere sports costs roughly €10 per month, plus some extras you might have to buy.

That's very doable.Thanks for the info.Looks like my questions were quickly answered and solved.

There will be NHL hockey for me and it won't break the bank. I'll even get HNIC

There is a God.

But be aware that the live games are in the middle of the night.

Since there is NASN in Germany I also believe in God

Don't worry about the time difference .. they show all games As Life the next day. You just have to avoid the scoreboards until you watched it that way. And you get used to that "scoreboard-avoiding" very quickly ..

I'm just relieved i can get any games at all,to have the coverage as good as it is,well,that's just icing on the cake.

I'm going to love my trip.............new culture,new people to meet,castles,great beer...................and i won't miss a lick of hockey!!

What's not to like?

Well ... it really depends on Dachenhausen.

btw never heard of Dachenhausen. Any idea where you´re going to in Germany (south, west, east, north?)

it's a small town just outside of a city (small city) called Koblenz,do you know the place?

not sure if you would consider that East,West,South or north of the country.I think it's about 3-4 hours from Bavaria so i guess you would call it South or centre of the country?

Well, we´re not too far away from each other then (roughly 80 km).
Koblenz is west, so a trip to Cologne and watching the Haie is not impossible.

Right on,might catch you at a game then.

That was actually going to be my next and final question..................is there any German league team that is based close by.I was planning on going to some games in person.

I guess that should'nt be too hard to do

There´s minor league hockey around Koblenz (SC Mittelrhein).

For DEL teams i´d consider Cologne, Düsseldorf (both north of Koblenz). Otherwise, a bit harder to get to is Frankfurt and Mannheim.
Overall Koblenz is not a real hockeytown, but you´ll be able to reach Cologne for example within about 1,5 hours.

I´m not from Cologne - i do live south of Koblenz

So do you reguarly go to games in Cologne or is it a once in awhile thing because of the distance?

And..............does Erich Kuhnackle (hope i spelled his name right,probably not) coach or have anything to do with the German league these days.I remember him well from his playing days,damn good player too,could have been an nhl'er for sure.I heard he was coaching in some league or division in
Germany,maybe it was'nt in the top league though,not sure.

I´ll go everywhere once in a while - it really depends on, but we can schedule a little trip for sure.

Kühnhackl (you´ve been damn close) is now coaching in the DEL for the newly promoted Straubing Tigers. He´s coached some teams in tier 2 in the years before.
