Fox Sports and the NHL today finalized their local streaming deal, so this October, Fox' RSNs will begin streaming live games in the 12 markets where they hold local NHL rights. A formal announcement is expected later this afternoon. The multiyear deal allows authenticated users to stream games via Fox Sports Go and distributor apps/websites. The streaming deal was made in conjunction with another agreement clarifying the Fox RSNs' outer-market territories. The price tag for both deals combined runs in the low eight figures, sources said. Fox is now the sole RSN provider to have local streaming deals with MLB, NBA and NHL.
