Hey Everyone,  I recently moved to Florida and need suggestions on what I should subscribe to so I can watch the Canucks games here once the new season starts.  Preferably an app available on Apple TV.  Cheers!

ESPN seems to be the one main thing in the US. I use a series of systems depending on where I am at any one time.

I use ESPN+.  It's great.  I can watch the Habs at 4pm and then the Canucks at 7pm.  That is really great.  I don't have ESPN+ right now because it is summer.  

 

You can either pay by the year or get a monthly subscription.  The monthly subscription is great.  Plus there are other things on ESPN+, like sports documentaries. 

 

The only blackouts I have is when the Canucks play the Kraken or when the Habs play the Kraken. That is not great.

Ya, ESPN+ is the affordable option, but you do get the occasional blackouts and they don’t stream all the pre-season games. Pretty good deal at US$7 though

 

You can also be on the look out for promo deals on the Disney+ bundle if you want Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+


Do you watch other sports?

$7 per game or full the whole season? SN Now is about $200 CAD per year.

Like many of us who actually live down here ESPN+ is the best option.  You can have it bundled with Disney+ and HULU for under $20 per month. If you are with Verizon that drops down to as low as $0 a month. If you don't want commercials on HULU, that bundle costs $6.  So much better than the rabbit years hoping to catch as CBC signal on a Saturday night.

American football is the only others sport..Euro Football when it's the World Cup.  Do you know ahead of time if the games are going to be blacked out?  It would suck to have a few friends over for some drinks and the Canucks game only to find out it won't be shown.

I am in the states, and have ESPN+ and subscribe to Centerice  through my cable provider. ESPN+ didn't always show ALL the games. Especially

Canadian teams, and the quality was choppy quite often. Centerice would be my preferred suggestion. But gamecenter is the NHL's streaming platform, I may try that as I watch only around 5/200 of my cable channels.

US$7 a month for ESPN+, which streams not just hockey but a variety of sports and you get access to the 30 for 30 documentaries

Yep, any time the Canucks play against your region’s local team, the game will be blacked out

 

For example, I live in Torrance, California, which is in Los Angeles County, so the Canucks-Kings and Canucks-Ducks games are always blacked out. Note that you will still see the game show up in your ESPN+ upcoming hockey game feed, but when you click on it when it’s game time, it’ll tell you it’s blacked out

 

There are also games that show up in your ESPN+ feed that are actually streamed on ESPN2, ESPN3 or even ESPN, and those are separate channels not included in your ESPN+ subscription. It’s a little confusing the way they set it up, but in order to see those channels you need to add a “TV” subscription that gives you access to those channels, like FuboTV or Sling. I have Sling because it’s the cheaper option at US$35 a month and I get all the ESPN channels

Mind blowing. So much cheaper than it costs in Canada, even after accounting for exchange rates.
