    NHL on Fox is a television program that televised National Hockey League games on the Fox Broadcasting Company and produced by Fox Sports. The program ran from the 1994–1995 NHL season until the 1998–1999 NHL season. Fox paid $31 million a year to televise the NHL.

    Things ended badly between Fox and the league when the NHL announced a new TV deal with ESPN that also called for ABC to become the new network TV partner (as previously mentioned). Fox challenged that it had not been given a chance to match the network component of the deal, but ABC ultimately prevailed. It is speculated, however, that Fox may again bid for NHL broadcast rights when they next come up for renewal.
