The Best Way to Watch Live NHL Hockey Games Without Cable in 2018-2019

Best Way to Watch Every NHL Team without Cable

We picked the best live TV streaming services for each American NHL team so you won’t miss a single game. Don’t subscribe to one until you check your favorite team’s schedule.

Local Market Broadcasts

Most National Hockey League (NHL) telecasts will air on your Regional Sports Network (RSN). If you follow your hometown team, more than 80% of their games will air on your local RSN.

$50–$70 $55 $45 $20 $50–$85 $25 $25 $50
Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) $70 - ≥ $55 -

To watch your RSN online without cable, you will need a subscription to one of the major Live TV Streaming Services.

Once you subscribe, you will be able to stream your local NHL games on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS, and Android.

You can stream 21 of 24 U.S.-based NHL teams locally on Live TV Streaming Services.

You won’t be able to stream Colorado Avalanche, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Vegas Golden Knights regular season games in your local market.

Canadian Teams

None of the services currently offer streaming for Canadian teams:
Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, and Winnipeg Jets.

You may consider subscribing to Sportsnet NOW for in-market streaming.

Overflow Channels

Some games that appear on overflow channels may require you to watch on Fox Sports Go or NBCSports App.

Nationally Televised Broadcasts

Nationally televised games that don’t air on your team’s RSN may air on NBCSN or NBC. Most services include this channel as part of their entry level package.

Some of these games will air exclusively on these channels and won’t be available on your local RSN. You’ll also need these channels to watch the entire Stanley Cup Playoffs.

NHL Network broadcasts an additional ~100 non-exclusive games every year.

For the general hockey fan, this is a good option to see teams that play outside of your home market.

You won’t be able to watch your local team though, as games of teams in your local market will be blacked out if the game is also being broadcast on your local RSN.

Out-of-Market Broadcasts

United States

If you live away from your favorite team, you can still catch nearly every game. The NHL offers NHL.TV for $140 to watch every team or $112 to watch a single team’s games.

You can usually save 35% with a Student or Military ID.

Learn more by visiting NHL.TV.

Canada

If you live in Canada, consider subscribing to Rogers NHL Live for out-of-market streaming. It is identical to NHL.TV, but for Canadian views.
