How to watch NHL playoffs online via Roku and Apple TV
- by admin
With a series of playoff games starting this weekend, the NHL will be looking for ways to stream its best games live online.
But some of the biggest games in the league could get a little tougher to stream than usual if you have a subscription to a Roku or Apple TV device.
The first of the week’s playoff games will kick off at 7 p.m.
ET (local time), and it will be streamed on the NHL’s official site.
While that may seem like a huge deal for the league’s biggest games, the game’s broadcast could be pretty limited.
The game is being streamed through the NHL website through a different method, and it’s unclear if it will also be available to stream on Apple TV or Google Chromecast devices.
So how does the league view the stream?
The commissioner’s office confirmed that the stream will be available for free through its website, but said the stream is only available through the following devices:Apple TV, Roku, Roku Player, Apple TV Stick, Apple Watch and Apple iPhone.
So if you subscribe to Apple TV, you won’t be able to stream the game.
If you own an Apple TV and don’t subscribe to the NHL, you can still watch the game, but you will have to buy a new Apple TV box.
Google Play and Amazon Fire TV will be streaming the game for free, though Amazon has since removed it from its Amazon Video app.
The Fire TV app, which is only compatible with Fire TV sets, will also have to purchase the new Fire TV Stick app.
So if you’re in the market for an Apple device that can stream the NHL playoffs, this may be a good time to check it out.
The league also announced today that it is bringing its first ever NHL Playoff Game Pass subscription service to all of its digital channels.
This service is free for a limited time, and you can get a free 30-day trial of the service by visiting NHL.com/premier.
In addition, NHL will also offer a free NHL Playoff Ticket membership, which offers unlimited access to all live events for the duration of the season.
The NHL’s playoff game passes will be free for members, but there will be a $10 charge for non-members.
The league is charging for access to the playoffs as part of its $9.99 per season television package, which includes NHL’s main network partners, ESPN, NBC, Fox, CBS and Univision.
The subscription service will be limited to only the following channels: ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3, ESPN Deportes, NHL.TV, NHL GameCenter, NHL Mobile, NHL App, NHL Radio, NHL Play, NHL Now, NHL Televisa, NHL TV, NHL app and NHL Live.
The full list of live events will be announced in the coming weeks.
