Will NHL hockey games be blacked out?
Note: Some games may be blacked out due to local blackout rules, or because Sling TV doesn't have the rights to broadcast a game. Impacted subscribers will not be able to watch the game unless it is also on a local broadcast network, available either through your Sling TV subscription, or with an over-the-air antenna. For more information on blackouts, please click here.
If you receive a blackout message on a Regional Sports Network you receive through Sling TV and believe this may be in error, or if that channel is missing from your guide, click here for steps to troubleshoot the issue.
NHL Network Blackouts: Select games will be blacked out in the markets of the teams playing. In some cases, an alternate game will be shown on the NHL Network alternate channel, available in your guide. The alternate game will only be available in those markets where the game is blacked out on the primary NHL Network channel.
