How to watch the NHL online: Paid and free options

Watch NHL with NHL.TV
With NHL.TV, you’ll get access to live streams of both the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Blackout games apply. However, 48 hours after the game has been played, it’ll be added to the video archive for you to go back and watch.
With the new season upon us, with a reduced 56-game schedule, there are new subscription options available to you. You can opt for a $99.99 annual pass or $24.99 monthly pass. You can also sign up to watch your favorite team with an $84.99 single team pass. Blackouts do apply.
Each game offers the choice between home and away broadcast feeds, letting you pick the play-by-play you want to hear. And if you prefer to watch games at your own convenience, you can hide the scores on played games to keep the outcome a surprise.
Stream NHL with FuboTVFuboTV subscribers have access to over 100 channels, including regional sports networks for catching your local games. Stream live and on-demand from most popular devices across a range of membership tiers.
As of December 2020, the $54.99/month standard plan is no longer available for new users. Options now start from $64.99/month for the family plan. You then need either the fubo Extra plan ($7.99/month) or Sports Plus ($10.99/month) add-ons to access the NHL.
The Sports Plus Pack will also get you an additional 20 sports channels. You can cancel any time and there’s no long-term contract. Get a taste of the action with the 7-day free trial first.
Live stream NHL with Sling TV
- $20 per month for the first month, then $30 per month, with Sling Orange or Sling Blue, plus $10 for the Sports Extra
- $35 per month for the first month, then $45 per month, with Sling Orange + Sling Blue, plus $15 for the Sports Extra
Your best bet may be to combine Sling Blue with Sports Extra — the latter holding the keys to the NHL Network kingdom — depending on how many games you’re interested in. You can also now add NHL Center Ice to your plan for $24.99/month or as a standalone component. Separate from NHL.Live, it lets you watch out of market games.
