Viasat Hockey is a sports channel that is broadcasting from the United Kingdom, primarily targeting Sweden but also available in Finland[1] and Norway. Broadcasting was commenced on 1 September 2009, at the start of the 2009 ice hockey season.[2] The channel focuses on the KHL, HockeyAllsvenskan, Kvalserien, Ice Hockey World Championships and NHL.

The launch of the channel was announced 7 May 2009 during the 2009 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships. The channel is included in the Viasat sports package via satellite. The channel is available through the cable- and broadband networks, and the games from HockeyAllsvenskan shown on TV are available through the streaming service Viasat OnDemand.[3][4]
