You might not catch a single NHL match on Australian free-to-air TV, but there are plenty of other ways to keep up with your ice hockey idols. We've laid them all out below:
To get your ice hockey fix, you need Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now, Kayo Sports or Fetch TV. You can also access it via the league's own streaming service, NHL.TV. Read on for more details.
Kayo Sports subscribers get access to content from ESPN, so they will be able to stream a minimum of three games per week during the regular season and enjoy extensive coverage of the play-offs right through to the Stanley Cup Finals.
A Basic Kayo subscription costs $25/month and enables you to watch on two screens, while the Premium subscription, at $35/month, lets you watch three simultaneous streams. Both subscriptions include access to HD content live and on-demand from more than 50 sports.
You can sign up for a 14-day free trial to see if the service fits your needs. There's no contract involved, so you can cancel your subscription at any time. We highly recommend diving into our deep analysis of Kayo Sports, too, which details all of the unique features offered by this classy app.
Kayo Sports is compatible with computers, smartphones and tablets, Chromecast, Telstra TV, Apple TV, Android TV and Samsung TV (2017 or later).
ESPN is part of Foxtel's premium Sports Pack, so pay TV subscribers can watch NHL games live on TV or stream with the Foxtel Go app to laptops and mobile devices. The app is free with any Foxtel subscription, but the Sports Pack must be added to the Foxtel Plus package. This brings the minimum monthly cost up to $74 per month, plus any installation fees.
Alternative, you can watch NHL coverage with Foxtel Now. ESPN is part of the Sport Pack, which costs $29/month. You also need the Essentials Pack to gain access to it. The total charge is $54/month, cheaper than Foxtel iQ but still significantly more than Kayo. A 10-day free trial is available for new customers.
Foxtel Now is compatible with computers, smartphones and tablets, the Foxtel Now Box, Sony Android TVs, Telstra TV, Chromecast/Airplay and PS4.
ESPN is also available in the Vibe channel pack from Fetch TV, which costs only $6/month. However, the total price of your subscription will depend on whether you purchase a Fetch TV box outright or get it through a broadband provider. So the overall price will be dramatically more.
NHL.TV is the National Hockey League's own subscription streaming service, providing fans all around the world with live and on-demand access to the latest games in both the regular season and the play-offs. Available through the NHL website as well as a host of mobile and non-mobile apps, NHL.TV offers unparalleled coverage of every save, stick-check and slapshot.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle.
