There are now more ways than ever to watch the Penguins play! Whether you live near Pittsburgh or far away, you can keep up with your favorite team.


Existing Comcast/Xfinity subscribers who have the expanded basic package (i.e., Popular TV) will now be required to upgrade to the Ultimate TV tier to keep access to the Penguins and Pirates.

Fans who have the Xfinity Popular TV tier have at least three options to continue getting SportsNet Pittsburgh:

  • Upgrade to the Xfinity Ultimate TV tier
  • Subscribe to FUBO TV
  • Subscribe to DirectTV Stream


No changes. SportsNet Pittsburgh will remain on the Xfinity Ultimate TV tier.

Fans are encouraged to contact Comcast directly with any billing questions.
