Streaming NHL Games On ESPN+

from Jason Gurwin of The Streamable,

There is much anticipation with the move of NHL.TV to ESPN+. In addition to streaming every out-of-market NHL regular season game, and 75+ nationally televised games on ESPN+, you will also be able to stream more than 35 NHL preseason games with the service.

Starting Sunday, September 26th, ESPN+ will stream two games, New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders, as well as the Vancouver Canucks vs. Seattle Kraken. Both games, as do most of the pre-season coverage on ESPN+, local blackouts apply.

Currently, ESPN+ is planning to stream at least 35 NHL preseason games to subscribers (full schedule is below). To see upcoming games, you can visit the “NHL - Live & Upcoming” tab in the app.

To stream NHL.TV on ESPN+, it costs $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year ($5.83/mo.), or you can get it as part of The Disney Bundle for $13.99 a month. There is no longer multiple plans, you get every team’s games if they are outside your market with ESPN+. Instead of streaming the games in the NHL App though, they will now be viewable inside ESPN+.

And there’s why it won’t matter.

Until they can get over this, it doesn’t mater WHERE the NHL games are, they’re going to have a tough time finding audiences to watch them.
