Hockey Fan Living Abroad? The Best Links to Free Online Streams of Games.

December 30, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m Canadian, and if you’ve followed this blog for any amount of time, you’ve put together by now that I’m a big hockey fan too. As I’m currently residing in Asia, watching games can be quite the challenge. Major networks like TSN and CBC won’t stream games online outside of Canada. So I’ve been forced to sift through the internet for the best online streams I can find.

You're welcome guys!

You’re welcome guys!

If you’re in the same boat as me, today’s your lucky day. I’ve hacked through all the junk, and compiled a list of all the best links to free hockey games that I’ve found. I’ve got no doubt the game you want to watch can be found at one of them. And for free!

The following links are my go-to’s. You’ll have to wade through them to find the best feed, but it’ll be worth the effort. Most of these sites will require you to close numerous ads to uncover the screen, but they’re all free, and don’t require any players or software to be downloaded.

Here they are (*updated February 2020*):

1) http://mygoodstream.pw/nhl/

2) http://livetv.ru/en/allupcomingsports/2/

3) http://atdhe.eu/hockey

4) http://www.vipleague.se/sports/ice-hockey.html

5) https://sportsurge.net/#/events/32

6) http://www.sportsstatsme.net/p/nhl-schedule.html

bonus) Reddit Hockey’s VLC solution

If you’re ok with downloading software, then download Sopcast. It’s a trustworthy P2P internet TV internal player, and you can stream much higher quality feeds from it than you can from any of the above links. Just be aware through the download process to uncheck all the non-sense it wants you to install along with it. If any of this sounds too risky for you, stick to the links above.

Did I miss any? Leave your favorite links in a comment, and I’ll add them.

Happy hockey watching!

      yeah I’ve seen that one, but you have to download software to use it, so I didn’t include it. Thanks though.

        Does this still work when out of canada Dave? I’ll be in Costa Rica for almost the whole 1st round of the playoffs ( so I can’t test it yet) and im a DIE HARD Habs fan. Doubt I’ll find any coverage of habs/sens down there. I ask cause the last comment is over a yr old and I know things keep changing with greedy rogers taking over. Thanks in advance mate

        • SDC
          April 13, 2015 at 9:17 pm

          yes, as long as you have an internet connection, all these links should still work. I have been updating the list, but if you find one that’s down, let me know.

      Ha, you Flyers fans are just about as serious about your team as us Canadians are about the sport. Happy to help! You think Philly’s gonna be able to turn things around?

        i will answer this question , as im glad to have you noticed that despite my limited memories at age 2and 3 , of winning the cup we love hockey but are outcast from the other three sports teams ,,,, of course no one actually remembers that the first great truly universal feel good biggest feel good celebration , as well as the last was the diverse giant family of blue collar fans or not fans the whole city turned out to party all welcome ,,, and the crowd that was on hand you can combine the one superbowl 2 wsorld series 2 nba titles and it still dont come close }but it is part of your life and who you are i was lucky to have had a father who sacrificed for his boys and held season tickets back when it was possible for common folk …. and to this day i9 can recite the greatest teams and all of the players that were a part of from late seventies til 85 ,,, i remember the the mid seventies , canadiens as well as the flyers thoise years not to mention always boston and nyrangers , than the early 80 islanders and everybody on that team *******especially leon stickle {we aint forgot yet stickle can suck my dickle !!!!and finallly our last years as season ticket holders , the perhaps greatest dynasty ever the great one and the oilers , luckily we were treated to more than the one appearance we got during the regular season ,with our two stanley cup attempts ,,,,,and he was that much more incredible in person , i remember people actually standing and applauding in the spectrum his natural 1 st period hat trick ,,,that might mean more than any other compliment you casn give ,, make long story tad longer , my father purchased tickets three seats for the season in 1970 , he called the number the guy on the phone said where would you like to sit mr. dailey my dad says i dont really know where would you suggest , the man said drive down if your close and lets have a look , he was greeted by the owner ed snyder , they walked into the building and he took my father to where his guests or players families were gonna sit , and he said i think its fun to sit behind the enemy goal that we will shoot at 1,and 3rd, we got three seats above where the zamboni came out , and probably saw at least two people a game leave after catching a puck to the head i myself being born in 72 , never saw reggie leaches slapshot just the windup ,and my dad like suddenly braking in a car ,stuffed my head below the seat in frt of me ,,, also among all the hockey greats who sat next to me , none stand out more than the great gordie howe who sat beside me at least ten times , my father told me to not speek unless he were to speek to me , which i did , because quite simply , iknew better , but after two times he came to watch his son play he actually said to me i kept meaning to bring this for you because i really respect your attention , knowledge of the game for a kid your age , but i wad telling my son about you , and i didnt know if you knew im the father of number 2 mark howe and he handed me a signed jersey of his son with both howes signatures , and he said i bought somethoing for you sir and gave my dad a beer ,,,,true story , pelle lindbergh ,suffered a broken hand , , sat next to me and was my all time favorite flyer simply because his throwback mask in honor of his favorite player bernie parent , who i still remember vividly seeing the highstick catch him him throwing off the mask in a bolt to the bench never to play a game again ,pelle death signified a big change in flyers history , asnd our last year was watching a no name rookie goalie take edmonton 7 games ,in the cup, RON hextall ,,,geeez sorry ijust now realized i forgot your question , had the flyers , continued the season the way they started with ellliot , a non playoff caliber goalie and a coach who has the same expression weather his star player ,just got concusserd by a dirty hit , or his star player just scored a gm7 overtime goal, people say why aint you watching , i said because they keep saying they have the two best prospecr nhl goalies ppolaying in the minors , and every game they come out trailing 2to0 , i saiod if they have any sernse fire the coach all the goalies , give me hart and stolarz and anybody else behind the bench , didnt think it would happen as they were tall orders , but it has 4 games in a row ,is change , and even if they loose next rwenty as long as these kids are getting chance ill watch , and i think their team , on paper has the capability to contend despite astronomical odds of making the playoffs , dont count them out ,,,,again you are the coolest , my other request for the nhl is vancouver bring back the flying v .. and the flyers to rock the long pants baby

    Thanks for the sites. I’ve been trying to look for a CDN version of media hint for chrome and no luck yet. This certainly helps!

    Is there any site that streams hockey night in canada specifically? The cbc player wont operate on my computer, and tried everything to figure it out?

    • SDC
      May 16, 2014 at 7:37 am

      The only thing I’ve seen make that work is using a VPN like Tunnelbear, or something else, then visiting the CBC website. All the other streams are crapshoots on who the broadcaster is.

    G’Day, I’m an Aussie and want to follow the Hockey. I followed your SopCast set up, and it sure works but> Do you have a short list of recommended channel numbers to use in SopCast to get to the Hockey please. I tried cut/paste those ‘links’ you mentioned but had no luck with the due to the type of format they are in. Cheers, Elvis

    • SDC
      August 27, 2014 at 5:10 am

      I unfortunately don’t have any Sopcast channels bookmarked to share. Wiziwig usually has a few Sopcast specific links in their game links list which I simply copy/paste into the Sopcast address bar. Best thing to do is do a search for a Sopcast link just prior to the game you want to watch and something should come up. Sorry if that’s not overly helpful!

    Thanks for the list.

    Was wondering if there are any free sites showing recorded games.
    Leafs fan here in Asia so games shown during regular working hours.
    Would like to watch (without knowing the results) same gameday right after work.

    Appreciate any and all help.

    Also looking for somewhere to download games rather than stream as I work during game time. I used to download them all from piratebay but my guy is no longer uploading NHL 😦

      Hi jets fan here thanks a lot Dave I watched the jets rangers tonite on the VIP link cuz the 1st 4 links didn’t work on my phone and I got tsn3 feed too and for the fans that want to watch an already completed game LIVETV.SX/EN then go to archives and watch almost any sport or game full replay or just highlights, just enter the date you want and all the sports come up for that day, the timezone difference means you may need to enter the day before or day of or day after the real date of the game but they are there, I still go watch last years first jets playoff game in wpg on livetv.sx/en , enjoy and thanks again Dave

    looks like a good site. I am also looking to see if I can pay to watch the world cup of hockey this September. Due to the times these games are on, and the NHL games this coming season, does anyone know how to record a game on the computer?

    October 12, 2016 at 12:34 pm

    I cannot thank you enough for this post!
    I have not had cable for years! And now that I have internet, with these links, I won’t miss a single game!!

    Thank you and take care!

  22. October 14, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you for this! As a fan of a Canadian team living in the States, it’s very hard to see anything except local crap teams. Wish you could find some links for OHL or WHL games as well. Miss being able to attend London games and would love to be able to watch the Knights when they’re being televised.

    • SDC
      November 26, 2016 at 10:34 pm

      onhockey.tv and some of the other links occasionally have links to other leagues too. Can’t promise major junior though, but maybe if you check the links on Knights game days, you’ll get lucky.

    hey there, first of all thank you so much for this! I can’t miss this oilers ducks game 7! but my question is if its possible to stream it the next day? which site would be the best for that? Cause I’m living in quebec and the time difference makes it so that the game is a bit too late.
    thank you!

    • SDC
      May 15, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    • SDC
      October 11, 2017 at 10:19 pm

      I’ve seen onhockey.tv carry a lot of non-NHL games, but there’s no schedule for them, they just appear on the sidebar when they’re being played. I’d try that one.

    Cool. Thanks. I was able to watch the Canada-Switzerland game thanks to you. Are you in Korea? I noticed the logo for the Jeju Islanders. My wife is Korean – we’re just in the process of getting her PR status so she can join me here in Victoria soon.

    • SDC
      January 31, 2018 at 10:50 pm

      Glad I could help! I was in Korea from around 2012-2015, in Jeju. I founded the Islanders while I was there. What city is your wife from?

    Hi I live in Germany and I love ice hockey, but often games are at 4 o’clock in the morning, that is super annoying! Do you know a page where I can watch the games a day later?

  35. MacDaddy

    Hi Jen,

    Watch all NHL games a day later in HD at nhlreplays.com It’s fantastic!

    October 2, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    Hello Dave:

    I will be hoping to use your links to stream Chicago Blackhawks games for this season. Also, for those that wish to watch games after the fact, there is a good site for that: http://www.nhlreplays.com

    i just wanted to say , you sir , are absolute genuine cooool dooooood !!!!!!!!!as i say the basic cable price is an insane amount when all is it does is push political propaganda down your throat ,,,all the hollywood writers must of ditched television sitcoms or series ,for the far better paying , nfl game scripts pay almost as well as , the lonegunman shootemups , that get all the viewers , basket ball scripts unfortunately dont pay well thus lack of creativity , leeds to same tired writers hitting cut paste , the template for the mandatory all seven game series …. lucky to have found you as reddit seems to have quit , at least the lowly flyers another forty games and the 82 game preseason ends , i will head over to target to spend for that 60 inch state of the art tv , once the cuo is lifted , i rebox with reciept in tow , and inform the lady that it took a while to figure out the problem , but it dont match the lamp , but other than that awesome product , get few fresh 100 back , and thank the lord i didnt have to suffer threw any fucking car , boner , or political ads …. but once again i just thought what an inspiring unselfish thing to do
