The National Hockey League offers subscription services for its live game broadcasts. Major networks, such as NBC and CBC Canada, also list upcoming NHL games on their websites. These lists show the names of the teams as well as the times and time zones for the live streaming broadcasts.
The NHL lists upcoming games on NHL.com. The game list shows the teams playing, the dates for the games and the time when each game begins. If a live streaming option of the game is available, NHL.com provides more information about this option. Other networks that list upcoming games use similar layouts.
When the viewer chooses a live stream for viewing an NHL game broadcast, he is forwarded to a local TV affiliate site, such as the website for a local CBS or NBC affiliate station. The viewer may need a cable provider subscription to view the live broadcast. If the viewer is using the NHL main site and the subscription service, an Internet connection is required, but a cable subscription is not necessary to view a game.
Monthly and yearly subscription options are available through NHL.com, as well as other sports sites and sites that host sports-related channels, such as Sling TV.
