How to stream NHL games for free
Hockey fans of the world’s most spectacular league will be pleased to discover they can now stream live NHL action for free thanks to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). However, don’t expect to get all the games. Most times, the viewing options are limited to Saturday night games. However, that takes nothing away from the fact that this service can be free of charge.
To watch the NHL streams live on CBC you’ll need a valid CyberGhost VPN subscription. Once you’ve ticked that off your checklist, start your VPN and connect to a server location in Canada. Once the VPN connection is established, head to CBC Gem, create your account, and you’re all set.
The best option for streaming NHL online without cable
One of the best options for a hockey fan to watch NHL games is the NHL.TV service, formerly known as NHL Gamecenter.
This over-the-top hockey subscription package offers over 1,500 out-of-market games. Prices for the full season start at $139.99. There’s also the possibility to get a monthly pass for $24.99 or a full-season pass for a single team for $109.99.
Members of this service also get access to pre- and post-game shows, as well as intermissions shows during live games. The service, however, is subjected to blackout restrictions. These blackouts protect the local television channels who acquired the rights of NHL games in the local markets of the teams.
Because of this, you’ll have to wait 48 hours before the blacked-out NHL game becomes available on NHL.TV.
How to watch blacked-out NHL.TV games
NHL.TV applies its blackouts by using your IP address to identify your geographical location. That leaves the door wide open for an NHL Gamecenter blackout workaround, such as CyberGhost VPN. We hide your IP address and replace it with one from our system.
You just connect to a server from CyberGhost’s VPN network located in another US city (or even better, another country). You’ll be able to watch the games without having to worry about blackouts ever again.
Additional NHL streaming options
If NHL.TV doesn’t fit your bill when it comes to NHL streaming, don’t worry.
Here’s a list of other online streaming services that offer access to NHL games.
|Streaming service||Available in||Price||Free trial|
|YouTube TV||US||$49.99/mo||7 day|
|Sling TV||US||$25/mo||7 day|
|fuboTV||US||Starting at $55/mo||7 day|
If you’re living the US, you need to connect to an American CyberGhost VPN server before creating an account to any of these services.
Who will lift the Stanley Cup in 2021?
If there’s one thing the experts agree on when it comes to Stanley Cup contenders, it’s that the number of title-worthy clubs is bigger than ever. While bookmakers rate Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche, the Vegas Golden Knights, and Tampa Bay Lightning with the best chance to win it all, they also believe a surprise may be in the books this season.
So, keep an eye out for the St. Louis Blues, who even though lost their captain to Vegas, the new names brought are for sure going to help create goals. Unfortunately for them, the path to the Cup final goes through Colorado and Vegas, so they’ll have to be at their very best if they want to crown themselves champions once more.
And what about the Washington Capitals? After celebrating their long-awaited title in 2018, Ovechkin and Co. have offered little during the past two years. Even though bookies don’t sey them as title contenders, we believe it’s high time for a resurrection and come back to form.
Other teams that can’t be ruled out are the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Philadelphia Flyers, or the Boston Bruins.
