Right with the start of the event, DirecTV has committed to broadcast the 2014 World Championship extensively across South American and the Caribbean.

The agreement was closed with Infront Sports & Media, the exclusive media and marketing partner of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) for its flagship event, and runs for four years.

Based on the new contract, Infront was able to increase the overall number of countries and territories reached with TV coverage to over 150 – a new record for the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

DirecTV holds live, delayed and highlight rights for all Spanish-speaking countries and territories across South America and the Caribbean, including Argentina, Barbados, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Jamaica, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela.

As part of the agreement, a minimum of six games will be transmitted, including two quarterfinals, both semi-finals and final - with the overall number increasing to twelve games in 2017.
