VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 19, 2022 /CNW/ – Network Media Group Inc. (TSXV: NTE) (OTCMKTS: NETWF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce a partnership activation with ethos, a white-label platform for brands that makes digital collectibles easy to purchase with an email and credit card, designed to help brands securely and authentically utilize NFTs. Under the terms of the arrangement, Network will be utilizing ethos’ proprietary platform for its previously announced digital collectibles campaign with the Hockey Hall of Fame.
The campaign will serve as a natural extension to Network’s 10-part documentary series Legends of Hockey: Greatness Calling 2000-2020, a Network Entertainment production, created by Derik Murray in collaboration with Hockey Hall of Fame and TSN, which had its world premiere November 14, 2022, immediately following the Hockey Hall of Fame 2022 Induction Ceremony on TSN in Canada. New episodes will be released weekly on TSN until February 2023.
The series shines a spotlight on the game’s modern-day stars, showcasing the players, and plays of a lifetime, who were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame since 2000, and features a global lineup of iconic men and women of the modern game, including Mark Messier, Jarome Iginla, Hayley Wickenheiser, Cammi Granato, Angela James, Doug Gilmour, Paul Coffey, Pat LaFontaine, Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille, Mats Sundin, Eric Lindros, Sergei Fedorov, Patrick Roy, Igor Larionov, Ray Bourque, Angela Ruggiero, Teemu Selänne, Jari Kurri, and many more.
“We are thrilled to be working with ethos’ team and their innovative solution for brands entering the world of Web3,” said Tom Lombardi, President of Network NFT Studios. “Our multi-faceted campaign with Hockey Hall of Fame requires a robust tech platform that can facilitate a seamless and authentic experience to our global audience of sports fans and NFT enthusiasts. The ethos platform has a variety of unique features and user experiences that we look forward to showcasing with Hockey Hall of Fame.”
Launching in early 2023, Network and Hockey Hall of Fame are developing a fan-focused NFT program that will encourage peer-to-peer collaboration and incentives for fans to interact with their digital collectibles, unlocking new rewards and experiences in the process. This NFT initiative will inspire hockey fans and NFT collectors alike to buy, collect and trade digital collectibles, and to be part of a holistic and vibrant community to celebrate the history of hockey and the greatest players of all time.
