No Winter Classic Public Viewing Party In Boston
NBC has pulled the plug on Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's plans to host a public viewing party of the upcoming Winter Classic hockey game.
With the Winter Classic taking place New Year's day at Gillette Stadium, you'd think there might be a little local leeway on the viewing...but no,
NBC and the NHL released the statement that
public viewing gatherings for nationally televised regular-season games are not permissible under NHL media-rights policies.”
Walsh is apparently not deterred just yet however. Sources say city officials are still trying to come to an agreement with the NHL about a live stream in Copley Square.
