Cord-cutting fans who want to watch the Montreal Canadiens can choose from a wide range of TV streaming services. In the United States, fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, ESPN+, YouTube TV or AT&T TV Now as well as the NHL.TV app carry the stations with NHL games. In Canada, fans can get NHL Live, TSN Direct, Sportsnet Now and the RDS app for their hockey streaming needs.

However, not all American streaming services are created equal. You’ll want a streaming service that carries NBC, NBCSN and the NHL Network.

Live TV streaming services aren’t readily available in Canada, but fans of the Montreal Canadiens have a few options for streaming hockey games.

NHL Live

With NHL Live, you’ll be able to watch regular season games, Stanley Cup Playoffs and more for $200 per season. However, NHL Live is designed for watching out-of-market games so it’s best for Montreal Canadiens fans who live elsewhere in Canada. All games, including blacked-out games, are available on-demand within 48 hours.

Sportsnet Now

Sportsnet Now lets you watch in-market sports. You can access everything for free with a pay-TV subscription or get a Sportsnet Now+ subscription for $28 per month or $250 per year. However, Sportsnet Now can’t broadcast the Montreal Canadiens’ in-market games.

TSN Direct

Within the Montreal Canadiens’ market area, TSN Direct is the way to get the team’s local English-language broadcasts. If you have a pay-TV provider, then you don’t need to subscribe again. Otherwise, TSN Direct costs $20 per month or $100 per 6 months.

RDS

For French-speakers in the Montreal Canadiens’ market area, you’ll need the RDS app. Available on mobile devices and the Apple TV, you can only access the live streams if you have a pay-TV provider.
