* I know all the illegal streaming sites - I'm good there, friends who would PM me the links *

but if I want to watch them "LEGALLY", which the NHL has made difficult since removing NHL.tv...

Do you need ESPN+ AND cable TV for TNT or TBS or whatever?

If you have ESPN+ can you watch the ESPN games live and next day? Can you watch non-ESPN games the next day?

I'm east coast now so either way I gotta pay for something to watch it the next day. I am not sure if ESPN+ streams "non-ESPN" games the next day as well.

PS: Going to Kings @ Hurricanes game in January if anyone's in the area, lol.

I had ESPN+ last year. All the games, even those not broadcast live on ESPN+, were available the next day. That's why I got it--the ability to see any game as a replay, whenever you want.

Ok awesome thanks. That's what I need. Last year I wanted to watch them live so it was useless but I ain't staying up til 1:30am to watch this year :)
 
Are the majority of the games on espn+ or just ballys?

I no longer have access to my ballys connection so I’m trying to figure out the cheapest way to stream the games. Preferably live.

73 games on Ballys but I believe there are a couple that are on ESPN+ only, so that service might still be the best bet. They showed all the Bally?s games last year, although I?m not sure that the Bally?s streaming app affects that and if they have proprietary rights over the games.
 
I've never played a slot machine, but I really should! I must admit that while I don't gamble frequently, I occasionally partake in it with some pals. We're currently playing several games on joka room casino, and I must say, we're having a great time! We meet up at my place every Friday night because I stay in a larger place and we can have and discuss a variety of topics there.

Great input crypto.com bot.

To the OP, ESPN+ is awesome. They have pretty much every game. I dropped Center Ice this year because the streaming PQ was very good and CI doesn't get the ESPN+ exclusive games. Replays are up for an extended period; I have gone back and watched a game from a couple months before, so at least that long. I don't feel like I am pollyanna'ish but ESPN+ was something where I thought the new service was certainly as good as if not better than what was promised.

We'll see how the Bally's/Sinclair implosion in the next 6 months is addressed by the NHL (and NBA/MLB); it will work out somehow.

I believe I saw 7 games this season on ESPN+ for the Kings but they may also be on Bally’s
 
not trying to hijack but add on a Q. I work a late shift so I can't watch the games live. I get home as overtime and shoot out would end. Does anything out there allow playback on demand after the game is over? Can't wait till next day. Too many chances of seeing the score.
 
I keep hearing complaints here and at HF w chord cutters. I don't have any problems watching or recording games on DirecTV w Bally's or Center Ice. Only issue is I don't have Disney Plus so I will miss the ESPN+ games.
 
Any Canadians on here because I have the same question. Think I just get the sportsnet app and that's it - but not sure if it will replay games etc.
 
So am I correct that aside from illegal streams, there is no way to watch live without cable/satellite?
 
I was able to watch most of the games last year on ESPN+; hoping it's the same this season.
 
Direct TV Stream has it. And so does the new https://www.ballysports.com/plus/faqs Bally Sports Stream

These seem like the only legal options inside the Kings market area. I had DTV Stream last season. It was great but expensive ($90+) - is basically like having cable/satellite without a box. The Bally Sports+ option doesn't seem to have recording(?) so that doesn't work for me since I start watching most games after the wife/kids go to bed.
 
Just glancing through the schedule, which lists which network is providing the broadcast, it looks like there's going to be a lot less games available on ESPN+. NHL.TV hasn't released any info on their packages for the upcoming season, and NHL Center Ice isn't available to purchase yet either. I'm wondering if NHL.TV has a one team package. That's bound to be a lot cheaper than NHL Center Ice, which I think is about $200. I'm used to late nights on the East Coast, and imagine I'll be up late watching the Dodgers playoff games this year too. It's worth it! GO KINGS GO!!! GO DODGERS GO!!! GO RAMS GO!!!
 
Now I'm learning that every single game that is not a nationally televised game will be on ESPN+, and U.S. residents can't subscribe to NHL TV.
