 channels 204-209 and channels 237-239.
     "For the first time, NHL fans can hear every game for every team on
 satellite radio," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming,

 even if you live far away from your favorite team."
     The 2007-2008 NHL season starts this weekend as the Anaheim Ducks begin
 defense of their first Stanley Cup championship against the Los Angeles
 Kings. The Ducks and Kings will play Saturday and Sunday at the O2 Arena in
 London, marking the first time that the NHL has played regular-season games
 in Europe. The games will air live on XM channel 205.

 exclusive carrier of the 24-hour hockey talk radio channel NHL Home Ice,
