Google to bring more live sports coverage to YouTube

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2011

After some successful trials, streaming live cricket matches and special events, Google is now looking to expand its live coverage of sports events on YouTube. The company is currently in talks with the NBA and NHL to stream games live. Basketball and Hockey fans would be very pleased to see that.

Throughout its live streaming trials Google data showed that during the Indian Premier League live cricket coverage, users spent on average around 40 minutes watching each game. Compare that with an average of 15 minutes per user viewing videos on YouTube at other times. You can see why they are interested.

NHL Slapshot comes with Wayne Gretzky approved Wiimote hockey stick

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

Hard to believe a Hockey game hasn’t come bundled with a Wiimote hockey stick until now. This one is even endorsed by Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky himself. The game is EA’s upcoming NHL Slapshot, which comes with the small hockey stick shown above.

The stick holds both the Wiimote and nunchuck and has a foam blade that your TV will thank you for. I almost laughed when I read that Gretzky says that the stick is “very realistic” and “almost like playing in the NHL”. His drive to make money is also very realistic, and almost like playing in the NHL.
