How to live stream the Stanley Cup Finals in Australia

If you’re looking to keep up with the playoffs, then you need ESPN. There are two ways of watching ESPN in Australia; Foxtel and Kayo Sports. Unfortunately, there is no way to watch the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on free-to-air TV in Australia; you'll need one of these subscription services. However, thanks to free trials, they may not necessarily cost you a cent.

Watching the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on Kayo Sports

Our recommendation for the best place to watch the NHL Stanley Cup Finals is on Kayo Sports. This new streaming service has not been in Australia for long, but it's greatly disrupted the way we watch live sports. We have a lengthy analysis of the service for those who want to dive deep on this product, but in a nutshell, it takes the 14 best channels from the premium Foxtel Sports Pack and places them together in a standalone app. Since you don't need to buy non-sport content, this gives you more than 50 sports live and on-demand, including the NHL and Stanley Cup Finals, for just $25 a month.

Further to the competitive price, Kayo Sports offers a modern, Netflix-like interface that makes finding and watching live sport, sports entertainment shows, highlights, replays, documentaries and more, very easy. Plus, it has unique viewing features that really enhance the experience. This includes the ability to watch four channels at once in SplitView, a picture-in-picture mode, Key Moments timeline, Kayo Minis highlights, hide scores and more. Available on almost every device, plus TVs via ChromeCast, it's also very versatile.

Kayo Sports offers a 14-day free trial, which means you can test it out and enjoy the NHL Stanley Cup Finals without paying a cent.

Watching the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on Foxtel Now

Foxtel Now is the live streaming spin-off of the main Foxtel IQ set-top box experience that we've had in Australia for decades. It follows a similar model to Foxtel IQ in that you cannot just get the sports channels, but have to add them on as a Premium Pack to an existing entertainment bundle. This increases the price to at least $40 per month.

While Foxtel Now does show all the same content as Kayo Sports, it doesn't have the same advanced UI or the great viewing features. Foxtel Now does have a 10-day trial so you can test it out, but unless you want content beyond sports it's not your likely long-term solution. You can check out all the Foxtel packages here.

Watching the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on Foxtel IQ

If you already have Foxtel IQ in your home, you can add the Sports Pack ($29 per month) and the HD Pack ($10 per month) and access the NHL Stanley Cup Finals more-or-less straightaway. The hard work and expense of installation is already done. And Foxtel IQ does come with the Foxtel Go streaming app, so you're not tied to your TV with this option, either. However, it's still a lot more expensive than just getting Kayo Sports.

Watching the Stanley Cup Finals on NHL.TV

There's one final option that gives you access to a Stanley Cup Finals live steam, even if it has no other sports included in the package. That is a NHL.TV subscription, currently priced at US$19.99 (roughly AU$30) for a month. This is the National Hockey League's own streaming service.

Fans can access it via the NHL website on their computers or download an app for mobile and streaming devices. You’ll get live streams of all matches, along with exciting features to make your experience as seamless as possible. Think extra camera angles and the ability to pause and rewind live games or jump back to highlights with an interactive timeline. Fun!
