CBC Hockey Night in Canada is available for live streaming online through CBCSports.ca, through the CBC sports app, and from Rogers. The Rogers service is free for some current Rogers customers; it is also available on its own for a yearly or monthly fee.
Hockey Night in Canada has been available on CBC television since 1952, but the rights were purchased by Rogers Communications in 2013. Rogers licenses NHL games to the CBC for broadcast on CBC networks. The CBC allows live streaming from its website and on mobile devices through its app.
Rogers broadcasts Hockey Night in Canada through its City and Sportsnet networks, but as of 2015, neither of these networks offers live streaming of games. Rogers allows streaming from its GameCentre Live platform in its Rogers NHL app. Users who want to watch games on their televisions must stream them through a mobile device or set-top box. GameCentre Live is free for Rogers customers with certain wireless plans or cable bundles; for others, full access costs $200 for the season, or $20 per month, as of 2015. These plans include access to both regular season and playoff games and broadcasts in both French and English. They also include access to out-of-market games and full replays.
