I think he’s looking for the “I don’t wanna pay a dime“ route. 😂

Looking for streaming options for the 2021 season.  In the past have used Reddit but major changes occurred with NFL however I use Sunday ticket. This year looking to stream NHL if anyone has ideas PM me.

The NHL.com site is good. You can stream on any device with the app. You can also watch full and condensed replays. Everytime there was a blackout I was able to watch on local tv.

“Free” sites come with risks. Not worth it for a 56 game season with a team that doesn’t have the best recent season standings.

Can ya stream on multiple device at once sometimes I want to be watching two games at the same time?

The one thing that still drives me crazy about blackout restrictions is that it makes it more expensive to follow your home team on television than an out of market team. If I want to follow the Sabres I need MSG, and either a cable subscription or Fubo... much more expensive than if I just got the Center Ice package for a team far away.

Agree. I know the reasons why it’s not like that. but it doesn’t stop me from wishing either.

 

I wish there was like a 12 channel base package that everyone has to have… For let’s say $20 a month. Then for a dollar more a month you pick and choose which channels you want. Some people would just be happy with the 12 channels. Some people will want only 10 or 15 more channels. And some people want 30 or 40 more channels. And some people will want 90 more channels. Well you pay a dollar per channel per month. The more premium channels like HBO, Showtime etc.… You pay $2 extra per month. Heck you could even make dedicated sports channels an extra $2 a month as well. I don’t know just fantasy spit balling 😂

I have always wanted “TV” to be like my electricity, pay for what you use.

I only watch one channel at a time so I should only be charged for that channel. When my TV is off I should not pay anything.

If I want to watch a premium broadcast or stream I will pay the appropriate rates.

I received the same email of course I'm in Texas so only the Dallas games are blocked/I have to watch the Dallas Stars station. Small problem especially this season.

Yes.  Definitely yes.  If it matters, though, they might not be in sync.

If you're actually watching two different games it doesn't matter though.

Even at full price it’s totally worth it.

It would be if I could watch my favorite team on it.

Someday, the league is going to figure this out.  Spectrum or DirecTV pays MSG a few bucks per month, a fraction of which ends up in the NHL's pocket.  So let's say the NHL gets about $1 per month per subscriber.  $12/year.  Think of how much more money the league would make if it told MSG to go screw itself with the blackouts, took less money from MSG, and marketed its streaming service with no blackouts.  Presumption is that ad revenue remains constant across all distribution channels.
