Watch Predators Games With AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW

AT&T TV Predators Streams
The best option for watching Predators games is AT&T TV and AT&T TV Now. Currently, AT&T TV and AT&T TV Now offers regional sports networks for all 24 US-based NHL teams, except the Philadelphia Flyers, including Fox Sports RSNs, NBC Sports RSNs, and AT&T Sports RSNs. However, if your team is available on another streaming platform, then this service may not be the best available option.

AT&T TV is a hybrid service that mixes traditional cable TV with streaming TV and AT&T TV NOW is a traditional streaming platform. NOW was formerly DIRECTV NOW but is now under the AT&T brand. Both services essentially offer the same channel packs and plans.

These channels are available on the Max package which is available for $80/month. The Max package has 60+ channels including BET, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Disney Channel, Fox Sports, TBS, TNT, and many more. Like the other streaming options, there are no installation costs or hidden fees.

Stream Nashville Predators NHL Games With fuboTV

Predators on fuboTV

fuboTV is one of our top choices for streaming hockey games, but it does not carry the RSN for the Predators. This service does offer channels for other teams and national broadcasts.

FOX Sports Regional Networks are no longer available due to carriage disputes. Additionally, this service does not require a contract nor does it have any installation costs.

Currently, fuboTV offers regional sports networks for 9 NHL teams. These teams include Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Chicago Blackhawks, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, San Jose Sharks, and Washington Capitals. fuboTV is the least expensive option for MSG, MSG+, and NESN.

Steam Live Predators Games With Hulu With Live TV

Hulu Streaming Service

Hulu With Live TV was once one of the top options available for NHL games; however, Hulu now only offers availability to watch 4 NHL teams. These NHL teams are Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins, San Jose Sharks, and the Washington Capitals. Much like other streaming platforms Fox Sports RSNs are no longer available due to carriage disputes with Sinclair.

With that said Hulu does carry NBC Sports Network which does air several Nashville Predators games this season.

Watch Live Nashville Predators Games With Sling TV

Sling TV

Sling TV is no longer a great option for NHL games due to the loss of regional sports networks. However, just like Hulu, Sling TV does carry NBC Sports Network. Unlike cable or satellite TV, the service does not require a contract nor does it have any installation costs.

Currently, Sling TV offers regional sports networks for 2 NHL teams. The two teams available are the San Jose Sharks and Washington Capitals. Sling TV is one of two streaming services that offer NHL Network, so if you are looking for some Predators games and national coverage of the week’s top matchups then this might be for you.

Sling TV offers the Sling Orange and Sling Blue plans. Both streaming plans cost $30/month or you can get Orange + Blue for $40/month. Most NHL fans are going to want the Blue plan.

Stream NHL.TV With ESPN+

Watch Live Sports On ESPN+

ESPN+ is a direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from The Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International group in partnership with ESPN.

How To Stream Nashville Predators Games Out-of-Market

NHL is one of those sports that has a lot of blackout restrictions, especially for hockey cord-cutters. The good news is there is a way around these blackout restrictions for most of the services covered in this guide. The best way to do this is to pair NHL.TV with a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

Services like NHL.TV will blackout your local team. However, there is good news and that news is VPNs or Virtual Private Networks. VPNs help protect your streaming data and viewing habits by encrypting it. Today’s VPNs are fast and inexpensive.

A VPN allows you to “mask” your IP address by connecting to a server in another location. If your local hockey team has blackouts then you simply connect to a different region that is able to show your team. You may also use a VPN to access RSNs in different geographical regions.

Our top-rated VPN is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN is a fast, reliable, and inexpensive option to pair with your favorite streaming service. Plans begin as low as $8.32/month. We love ExpressVPN because it has the necessary speed required to route streaming video with little to no loss in quality. You can try ExpressVPN free for 30-days.

Please Note: Using a VPN may be against your streaming service’s user agreement and you should proceed with caution.

Illegal Streams of Nashville Predators Games

It is our policy to never recommend any illegal streams of NHL games or anything else. Many illegal “free” streams put you at considerable risk to acquire viruses and dangerous malware. Most illegal streams are terrible quality and frequently go dark in the middle of a game. Do you want to risk missing the game’s biggest moment because a stream went down? We do not believe it is worth the risk by any means just to save a few bucks.
