NHL games on ESPN+, Sportnset NOW and NHL.TV may be subject to blackouts, as further summarized below. Blackouts are always enforced according to the then current location of the IP address from which you are accessing the stream. For any games that are blacked out from the applicable streaming service, after 48 hours the full-length game replays will be available in the game archive.
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 television in your area are subject to blackouts in ESPN+. Games broadcast nationally may be blacked out in ESPN+ as well. For guidance regarding local blackouts in your area, enter the local zip code of the area where you will be streaming ESPN+ in the local blackout detector above to find out which club's live games may be blacked out on ESPN+. Zip code lookup is applicable for U.S. based postal codes only (and thus only applicable for U.S. subscribers to ESPN+).
For international customers of ESPN products, blackout restrictions may apply to games that appear on a non ESPN NHL® partner network in your viewing area based on the IP address from which you are accessing the service. Please check your local listings for broadcasts on these networks.
For international customers of NHL.TV, blackout restrictions may apply to games that appear on an NHL partner network in your viewing area based on the IP address from which you are accessing the service. In the 2022-23 season, games broadcast by SKY in Austria and Germany will be blacked out live in NHL.TV. The on-demand replay will be made available shortly upon completion of the live broadcast.
