In this review, we will cover several different available methods such as AT&T TV, ESPN+, fuboTV, Hulu With Live TV, NHL.TV, and Sling TV.

Due to carriage disputes in the industry, it is very important to check which services carry these channels because many of them have changed their channel offerings. However, there are still options available to stream the game legally and in high definition quality.


Here is the list of the channels required to watch Rangers hockey games and the different services that offer them.

Stream New York Rangers NHL Games With fuboTV

Rangers on fuboTV

fuboTV is one of our top choices for streaming Rangers hockey games. Most notably, this live streaming service gives subscribers access to most of the TV networks that carry NHL games such as NBC Sports Network, NBC, and MSG, MSG+, and NESN. 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.

Another top reason to get fuboTV is that it offers NHL Network which typically airs ~100 NHL games every season. Only Sling TV and fuboTV offer NHL Network.

fuboTV offers the following packages: Family ($64.99/month) and Elite ($79.99/month) plans. The fubo Family package contains 111 channels; 3 screens at once, and 250 hours of cloud DVR and the Elite package has 157 channels, 5 screens at once, 1000 hours of cloud DVR, and fubo Extra.

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

AT&T TV Rangers Streams
The best options available for watching NHL games is AT&T TV. Currently, AT&T TV offers regional sports networks for all 24 US-based NHL teams 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.

Update: AT&T TV NOW has been discontinued and has merged with AT&T TV. Existing AT&T TV Now customers will not be affected and can keep watching NHL on this service but new customers will not be accepted.

The merge simplifies the service but comes with a few changes. New subscribers can choose between a no-contract plan at a slightly higher price or a 2-year contract plan for a slightly lower price. If you’re looking to purchase this service only for the NHL season then the no-contract plan might be a better option for you. Also, you are no longer required to use AT&T’s proprietary streaming set-top box.

The no-contract plan begins at $69.99/month and the 2-year contract price is $59.99/month. A regional sports fee of $8.49/month is extra; however, the Choice plan and above includes one-free year of HBO Max ($14.99/month value). Also included for free in Choice and above plans is NBA League Pass Premium which is a great deal if you’re also an NBA fan. If you want the NHL Network included you will need to purchase the Ultimate plan.

Typically AT&T has offered bundle discounts so check to see if there are any special offerings for new and existing AT&T Unlimited and internet customers.

Live Stream New York Rangers On Hulu With Live TV

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, Philadelphia Flyers, 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 New York Rangers games this season.

Hulu only offers one live streaming TV package which is priced at $64.99/month. In addition to sports, Hulu + Live TV contains over 65 channels. Other popular channels offered by this service include Animal Planet, FX, National Geographic, History, USA, local channels, and more.

Watch Live New York Rangers Games With Sling TV

Watch NY Rangers NHL Games on 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 Rangers 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 $35/month or you can get Orange + Blue for $50/month. Most NHL fans are going to want the Blue plan. For an extra $10 you can sign-up for the Sports Extra add-on to get NHL Network. Sports Extra gives subscribers access to even more sports such as football, baseball, and basketball.

Please read our comprehensive Sling TV review for more details.

Stream NHL.TV With ESPN+

How to Watch NHL.TV 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. The service is a great way to watch Rangers games this season. ESPN+ is the exclusive home to Quest For The Stanley Cup and the nightly NHL highlights and discussion program, In The Crease.

Additionally, ESPN+ offers more than 180 regular-season NHL games as part of its regular subscription which costs $5.99/month or $59.99/annual. If you subscribe to Disney+ and/or Hulu you can bundle ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu together for just $13.99/month. You can bundle these services together by going to the ESPN+ website.

Fans will also be able to purchase and watch the entire NHL.TV package as part of ESPN+ for an additional price of $24.99/month or $99.99/annually. You can also purchase a single team pass for $84.99/annually.

NHL.TV is a standalone streaming service that lets you live stream every out-of-market NHL game. One of the major features is it allows you to watch up to four games at once, all season long. Additionally, you can choose not only from extra camera angles (two over-the-goal cameras, a zipline aerial cam, and the first-person ref cam) but also which audio hear: the television broadcast or the play-by-play for the team you’re cheering for. That’s in addition to an on-demand library of previous games and DVR capabilities that allow you to save, pause, and rewind as needed. Plus, it streams in 60 frames per second.

ESPN+ also offers live and on-demand coverage of MLB, MLS, UFC, college football, and several other popular sports. Watch ESPN’s original content such as Peyton’s Places, 30 For 30, E:60, and more. Read our comprehensive ESPN+ review.

How To Stream New York Rangers 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 New York Rangers 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.
