October 14, 2021 (Winnipeg, MB) – The Winnipeg Jets are teaming up with ProWire to deliver a new, enhanced in-arena experience for the 2021-22 season. Jets fans will be able to access in-game commentary and specialty Jets’ original broadcasts, including TSN and CJOB, in real-time through their mobile device.
The fully integrated service will run on the existing venue WiFi network and will be accessible via the NHL app. The Winnipeg Jets are the latest NHL team to partner with ProWire and adopt their NHL app integration.

“As we prepare to welcome fans back for the 2021-22 regular season, we are excited to offer new and exclusive in-arena experiences like ProWire,” True North Sports + Entertainment’s Chief Brand and Commercial Officer, Christina Litz said. “Our fans will have access to real-time audio broadcasts from their seats and we look forward to collaborating with ProWire on original channels to create unique fan experiences at Canada Life Centre.”
ProWire’s patented streaming technology enables venues with existing WiFi or 5G networks to stream audio directly to fans’ phones with no delay. Fans can access in-game audio throughout the venue and choose from a selection of channels to enhance their experience.
