Bypass NHL TV blackouts and stream all hockey games

While NBC and NHL TV are great, you still have to worry about blackouts.

That’s because regional markets have sole broadcasting rights, so some games may not be available in your area until 48 hours after a game is televised.

The secret to avoiding NHL blackouts? Just connect to a VPN server location where games are not being aired. If you’re in Chicago, for example, and games are being broadcast on TV, connect to a VPN server location in another city or country. That way you can stream hockey live without having to worry about blackouts.

Another way to beat NHL blackouts? Try the stream options from YouTube TV, Sling TV, and fubo TV. There may be unblocked games available.

Use a VPN to save money on your NHL TV subscription

If you’re set on getting an NHL TV subscription, note that subscription prices may vary. You can save money on your subscription by using a VPN to sign up from a server location outside the U.S. Countries like Russia, Germany, or Greece usually have better deals. Be sure to check different prices to see the best results.

And for all you Canadian readers, you don’t have to settle with the Canadian-only Rogers streaming site. You can use your VPN as an NHL TV work-around and get all games from inside Canada!

Save money and avoid blackouts? Yes, please!
