Software News   Software News : NHL and Amiga Announce NHL-Amiga Branded Content
   posted by DaveyD on 4-Oct-2005 0:00:00 (5640 reads)
Hockey fans around the world can play a variety of NHL-branded computer
games across wired and wireless devices.

October 4, 2005 - San Francisco, CA - NHL and Amiga.Inc. announced today a cooperative marketing and branding agreement where Amiga will create and jointly market NHL-branded applications through the co-branded nhl.shopamiga.com website.


Further, they will jointly enable leading carriers, operators and digital computing device OEMs to bundle this content in their most popular devices.

As hockey enthusiasts around the world visit NHL.com, they will have access to a thrilling variety of games, puzzles, and musical applications for personal computers, gaming devices, mobile handsets and other computing devices.

The National Hockey League commands a global audience, as one-third of the players originate from nations outside of North America. These countries are well known for their tremendous hockey fanbase and cutting edge adoption of mobile and Internet technologies.

Annually, the NHL plays to more than 20 million fans in hockey arenas throughout 30 major markets in the U.S. and Canada. NHL.com itself averages 5-6 million unique visitors per month, plus draws additional interest from affiliate sites AHL, ECHL, UHL, CHL and ELITE leagues that bring hockey to additional greater metropolitan areas.

The NHL also enjoys coverage from leading media and network partners, including NBC, OLN, CBC, TSN, HD-Net, RDS, Westwood One, Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio.

Amiga lets consumers enjoy rich-media NHL and hockey-based content featuring extraordinary audio-visual quality, high-speed interactive gaming, education and edutainment from all of NHL.com Arcade, Kids and Wireless sections of the NHL website.

The 'Fun and Games' section of NHL.com, provides online and cellular gamers of all ages with a perfect home. "Amiga is a great fit with NHL.com's commitment to provide fans around the world with compelling and entertaining content," said Keith Ritter, President NHL ICE. "We are thrilled to offer such high quality content across a myriad of devices."

"Amiga continues to find new and innovative ways to provide entertaining content", said Greg Sigel, Amiga's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Our developers are already busy creating new content to make the most of the market exposure that we are gaining through our efforts with the NHL and their industry leading partners."

Is there any content? I mean can I go there and pay for some game and run it on my mobile phone or any other (AmigaAnywhere) device?

Is that not the problem? I mean it only runs on a Windows Mobile branded device. Should you not have at least a dozen devices on which you can run the same content?

While I think it's nice to see that Amiga finally seems to be making some progress, I'm amazed that they get any deals with a website that looks that unprofessional..

Back in 96/97 it might have been ok.. Now it just looks really bad and dated..

"run hosted on a wide variety of operating systems including Linux, Windows CE .NET, Windows 2000, and Windows XP."

Does it run on latest Linux distributions? I doubt.

*Inc missuses the name Amiga and Anywhere.

And there is no mention of "amiga" on the NHL website, of course.

Is that not always the case? There is a partnership and it never (press release) shows up at the partner's website.

Hate to burst your bubble, but I think Palm OS is going to be a thing of the past.

Seems the NHL didn't have any trouble contacting Amiga Inc. either...

Saw someone posted this to the forums previously, and read the 'news release.'

Hmm. Well, looking at nhl.shopamiga.com , I see the same uninspiring AA stuff, with 'platforms' either being Microsoft PocketPC or Windows Mobile Smartphone.

I see no choice for 'Anywhere'?

This could be interesting, IF AInc actually does anything. I'd expect the NHL to have someone with a clue, and ask for at least some Proof Of Concept demos, having something to do with hockey...

So, whatever happened to their 'other' news item- being an IPAQ developer or something. I see no platform support listed there either...so is AInc going to actually do something or just make announcements?

I'm still sort of waiting for AA on OS4 (which Garry H said was 'available and paid for by AInc), but lack of much in the way of interesting titles for AA has made it pretty much irrelevant.

Good luck, AInc, may you find success enough to leave OS4 alone forever. (or bankruptcy, whichever, as long as OS4 is left alone.. )

Who knows what exactly Ainc are up to? The AmigaDE content we've seen from them so far has mainly been a bit luke warm and not particularly appealing.

Amiga must have something to offer these companies though, otherwise they wouldn't partner with them. There may also be better titles on the way as quality software can take many months or years to develope.

Although it is a good thing that Hyperion are allowed autonomy over the developement of OS4, it would be nice to Amiga have some involvelement in the marketing and sale of OS4 once it goes gold.
This may still happen though as they at least have enough interest in OS4 for Gary Hare to have had the IRC with us and provide Hyperion with the mystery technology sample.

If all they wanted to do was sell AmigaDE stuff, why bother with the above.

As always we have to grit our teeth (or bitch and moan) and wait and see what happens.
