When you stream NHL Network, you get the inside info on the greatest sport on ice.

NHL Network is a must for hockey fans who want to follow the National Hockey League. It airs exclusive hockey games live; during the regular season, it’s a must to catch out-of-market hockey games.

It also features three essential shows for hockey fans: NHL Now, a daily catch-all show with interviews and commentary; NHL Tonight, which breaks down evening’s game and news from around the league; and On the Fly, a nightly show focused on highlights and analysis. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the Maple Leafs, Bruins, or Red Wings, or coming on board with hockey thanks to the Seattle Kraken, NHL Network will help you in your hockey fandom.

If you have Sling TV with Sports Extra, FuboTV (at the Fubo Ultra level), or one of two big AT&T TV Now packages, you can stream NHL Network.

How much does NHL Network cost?

It depends on where you order the channel. On Sling TV, access to the channel costs $10 per month on Sling Blue or Sling Orange. On FuboTV, you will need the FuboTV Sports package which costs an additional $10.99 a month in addition to the cost of the base subscription. To gain access on AT&T TV Now, you have to clock in at the Xtra and Ultimate tier $124 and $135, respectively.

The following streaming services carry NHL Network.

1) Sling TV

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.

The Sports Extras package is $15 per month, available with Orange + Blue. It gets you NHL Network as well as MLB Network, NBA TV, FS2, and more. If you have just the Sling Blue or Sling Orange package, each service’s Sports Extra package (at $10 per month) works, too.

2) FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel now on board, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.

To watch NHL Network, get FuboTV’s Sports Plus with NFL RedZone add-on package for $10.99 per month. It brings you nearly 30 sports channels to stream, including (as the name clearly indicates) NFL RedZone.

3) AT&T TV Now

If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. If you’re looking for NHL Network, get in at the Xtra or Ultimate tier to stream it.
