NHL signs with Sling Media for vid clips


The NHL has partnered with Sling Media for its upcoming video clip-sharing service.  Sling is the maker of the Slingbox, which lets users relay TV shows from TVs or DVRs to any Internet-connected computer, and some smart phones.

Sling's "Clip+Sling" service, set to launch this summer, lets users grab clips from live or recorded TV shows and post them on Sling's Internet site for others to view.

Under the NHL deal, Slingbox owners would be able to record their favorite hockey moments and post the clips on Sling's website. The clips will be searchable by each NHL club, NHL plans to offer its own long- and short-form programming. CBS signed on earlier this year with Sling's clip-sharing service.
