I love hockey, and it’s been frustrating to have to pay $50/month to watch the games I want to see (HD feeds only). This year, my frustration reached critical mass with Comcast (or XFINITY as they call themselves now). Don’t get me wrong, I love Comcast (and the fact that Tony Soprano has an XFINITY remote in his hand in every episode of The Sopranos) but not enough to overpay by $600/year to watch hockey.

So this year, I decided that I wasn’t going to pay more than $300/year for my entire sports package. My solution: pay for the NHL Center Ice package ($120) and watch the Stanley Cup playoffs on with an internet-only subscription. This will cost you about $40/month through Verizon Fios (I have FIOS Internet only service), which includes internet and ESPN3.

Hockey is a sport that fans love. It’s fast paced and exciting. If you are looking for how to watch hockey online without cable, you’ve come to the right place.

Many people believe that the only way to watch sports online is with cable or satellite TV. There are actually plenty of different options that allow you to watch hockey online without cable. In this guide, we’ll go over how you can do just that!

I’m going to show you how you can use your sports package for regular season hockey and watch the playoffs on ESPN without a cable subscription. Let’s get into it!

With the NHL regular season coming to a close and the playoffs starting up, I wanted to write a quick blog post about how you can use your sports package for regular season hockey and watch the playoffs on ESPN without a cable subscription.

This is a question I get all the time from people who are looking to ditch cable but still want to watch their favorite teams. It’s also something that’s pretty easy to do, but it does take some effort.

Watch Regular Season Hockey with Your Sports Package

You can watch regular season hockey on NBCSN and USA, but they require cable subscriptions. If you don’t have a sports package, you can get one with your internet subscription. It’s not too expensive and it’s easy to add to your internet service.

So how do you watch the Stanley Cup playoffs without cable? You can watch all the Stanley Cup playoffs on ESPN for free. Just go to their website and sign up for an account with your email address and a password. You’ll be able to watch all the games on ESPN online or in their app.

If you need help figuring out which teams are playing in the playoffs, here is a helpful site that will tell you who is playing when: NHL Playoff Schedule.

Hockey fans who don’t have a cable or satellite TV subscription are finding it increasingly difficult to follow their team. The NHL has blackout rules for most games, but there is a solution. You can watch your favorite hockey teams online without cable using streaming services.

The NHL has a deal with Rogers Communications in Canada which gives Rogers exclusive rights to all national broadcast games, including the playoffs and the Stanley Cup Finals. In the US, NBC Sports owns the exclusive rights to national broadcasts.

As you probably know, sports packages aren’t cheap and they have a lot of restrictions on what you can actually do with your subscription. If you want to watch hockey online, you will need a way to get around blackouts and other restrictions.

The first step is signing up for Sling TV’s Blue package. It is $25/month and comes with many channels like ESPN, FS1, NBCSN, TBS, TNT and more. You can also add add-ons like Sports Extra and News Extra for $5/month each if you want more sports or news channels.

And if you are looking for a way to watch ESPN online without cable, then Sling TV is the answer! You can stream ESPN live on Sling TV without needing a cable or satellite

One major problem that sports fans encounter each year is how to watch playoff games. If you are a cord-cutter, you may have access to your favorite team’s games during the regular season, but once the playoffs start, you’re out of luck.

Some cable companies offer streaming options for their subscribers, but those are usually only available for the local team. This year, ESPN has stepped up to offer a way for cord-cutters to access NHL playoff games. For $20, you can access every game of the playoffs using ESPN3 or the WatchESPN app. The only catch is that you have to have a participating internet service provider (ISP) in order for it to work.

If you’re not sure whether or not your ISP participates in this deal, use the search box at the top of this page to find out if your ISP is on the list. If they are not on the list, then you will be unable to get it free, but there are other options available.

With the 2016 NHL Playoffs starting Wednesday, April 13th, many hockey fans are looking for ways to watch their favorite teams without having to buy a cable package.

The easiest way to do this is with Sling TV, which includes ESPN and ESPN 2 in their “Best of Live TV” $20 per month package.

You can watch games from the following channels:




NBC (in select markets)

NBC Sports Network (NBCSN)



and all the local channels you get with a digital antenna.**
