The Nashville Predators’ game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday will be the first of eight Preds games exclusively televised on ESPN+ and Hulu.
ESPN is one of two new national broadcast partners for the NHL, and the network will split up its regular season live broadcasts between ABC, ESPN (cable) and ESPN+ (streaming online).
The Predators will play eight games exclusively broadcast on ESPN+ and Hulu and three games on TNT.
ESPN+ requires a subscription that can be paid monthly or annually and can be bundled with Hulu and Disney+. ESPN+ is $6.99 a month standalone and streams most out-of-market NHL games (a la the former NHL.tv service) along with a number of other sports like MLB, MLS, several international soccer leagues, college sports and others.
If the streaming option is not for you, all regular season games will still be broadcasted on the radio on 102.5-FM.
