Can I Use a VPN to Watch the NHL Outside the US?

Some NHL fans connect to a VPN server in the US to watch on DirecTV Stream, ESPN+, or Hulu. While we don't snoop on our users' online activity, this is against our terms of service and is not acceptable.

How to Bypass NHL Blackout Restrictions


ESPN+ blacks out NHL games when your local TV network airs a game. This may also happen to a few nationally-broadcast games.

If you’re an international ESPN customer, you may also encounter blackouts if the game is broadcast on your region’s NHL partner network.

Don’t wait until the replay to find out who wins! Connect to a VPN server in a different location to watch the live action! CyberGhost VPN has a large fleet of US servers in 11 cities.

Traveling abroad during a game? Connect to one of CyberGhost VPN’s servers in Canada. You’ll get a Canadian IP address so you can live stream your home team’s games live.

NHL.TV (outside US and Canada)

Expect blackout restrictions if the NHL partner network in your area broadcasts the games. Restrictions may also apply based on your IP address.

If you’re vacationing in a blacked-out region, connect to a CyberGhost VPN server in a location where the game’s available. We change your IP address so you’re not limited to the games you can watch based on your current location.

Enjoy NHL with Slap-Shot Speeds

Don't let buffering come between you and the puck on the screen.

Leave lag and annoying interruptions behind with CyberGhost VPN. We have fast VPN servers running at 10 Gbps in popular locations. Watch as much NHL as you want in UHD! We provide unlimited bandwidth on our network.

Our VPN app automatically selects the best VPN protocol (like WireGuard®) for your connection, so you get the best of both speed and security on your device. See the difference and try CyberGhost VPN with the 45-day money-back guarantee.

It’s common for your ISP to deliberately throttle your speeds when streaming. This happens because your ISP is trying to manage bandwidth across its network.

Don’t let your ISP throw a hip check on your internet connection. Get CyberGhost VPN and stay under the radar. We use 256-bit AES encryption to make your data indecipherable. Your ISP won’t be able to snoop on your internet traffic and throttle your speed.

Watch NHL Securely on Public Wi-Fi

Free public Wi-Fi makes it extra convenient for you to follow your team’s game from face-off to overtime. However, most Wi-Fi hotspots are unsecured. Connecting to these can leave you vulnerable to cybercriminals keen on stealing your data.

Enable CyberGhost VPN’s Wi-Fi protection feature to live stream NHL securely on any Wi-Fi connection. The feature automatically switches on your VPN the moment you join an unsecured network.

In case you unexpectedly disconnect from our secure VPN tunnel, the Kill Switch blocks your internet traffic. This protects you from data leaks.


You can, but you’ll probably regret it. Free VPNs have few and overcrowded servers, so you’ll have a hard time connecting to your chosen streaming platform. When you do, server congestion will likely slow your connection and give you poor streaming quality.

Try CyberGhost VPN instead with our 45-day money-back guarantee. Connect to our vast fleet of high-speed servers worldwide to live stream the NHL.

In the US, you can stream NHL online via ESPN+, Sling TV, DirecTV Stream, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV.

In Canada, watch NHL games via Sportsnet NOW.

Elsewhere, NHL broadcasts live on NHL.TV (Europe, Asia, and MENA), Star+ (Latin America), Viaplay (Nordic countries), and Foxtel NOW (Australia).

Ice hockey enthusiasts from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia can catch the action via NHL.TV. Star+ is available for South American fans, while Foxtel NOW offers game coverage for Australians.

Only temporarily outside the US? Get a US IP address with CyberGhost VPN and regain access to your NHL streaming accounts (like YouTube TV, ESPN+, and more). This changes your virtual location, so it looks like you never left home.

Your best bet is to subscribe to a streaming platform offering a free trial such as YouTube TV, DirecTV, NHL.TV, and Foxtel NOW. These are safe and legal ways to watch NHL.

Download VPN to take advantage of our streaming-optimized servers for YouTube TV, ESPN+, Sling TV, and many more. We reserve bandwidth for these platforms, so you never have to deal with slowdowns.

Avoid blackouts by connecting to a CyberGhost VPN server in your home area. When you connect to one of our servers in your home region, we change your IP address. This allows you to get around blackout restrictions and watch NHL live streams usually available to you.

Note: Check the Terms & Conditions of your streaming platform before you use a VPN to get around blackouts. We don’t condone using a VPN to access content illegally.
