NHL.TV™ and NHL Premium™ Blackout Detector

Enter the local zip code of the area where you will be watching to find out which club's live games are blacked out.


Games broadcast on local and national television in your area are subject to blackouts in NHL.TV™ and NHL Premium™. In certain regions, if a game is available for you to view on television in your local viewing area, then it will not be available to watch live in NHL.TV™ and NHL Premium™. After 48 hours the full-length game replays will be available in the game archive of NHL.TV™. For guidance regarding local blackouts in your area, please enter your zip code above. If you are traveling, blackouts will be enforced according to your current location by the IP address from which you are accessing NHL.TV™ and NHL Premium™.

Zip code lookup is applicable for U.S. based postal codes only.

Nationally televised games also are subject to blackouts in NHL.TV™ and NHL Premium™ as well. In the United States, all Stanley Cup® Playoffs and Stanley Cup® Final games will be nationally televised and are subject to blackouts in NHL.TV™. If a Stanley Cup® Playoffs game is broadcast on your selected team's regional sports network, it is also subject to blackouts in NHL Premium™. To see which team's Stanley Cup® Playoffs games may be blacked out in NHL Premium™, enter your zip code above and check your local television listings. Please note that this lookup is only offered as guidance and your location is determined by the IP address you are accessing the service from. Blackouts are enforced based on the location of your viewing and not your purchase, so if you are traveling blackouts will be enforced accordingly. For international customers, blackout restrictions may apply to games that appear on an NHL® partner network in your viewing area by the IP address from which you are accessing the service. Please check your local listings for broadcasts on these networks.
