What is SN NOW? 

SN NOW is Canada’s premier live streaming service and the ultimate streaming home for NHL Fans. 

Like NHL LIVE, SN NOW is a product of Rogers Sports & Media and offers more than 1,000 regular season NHL games, every game of the Stanley Cup® Playoffs, plus Sportsnet’s extensive lineup of live sports content, including Blue Jays and MLB, Toronto Raptors and NBA, WWE, and more. Users also get access to all of Sportsnet’s original content like Tim & Friends, Sportsnet Central, Plays of The Week, and Gotta See It.


What NHL content can I expect with a subscription to SN NOW PREMIUM?

Users will get access to the same out-of-market games on SN NOW PREMIUM that they previously enjoyed on NHL LIVE, including games from all Canadian and American networks. As the destination for out-of-market games in Canada, it will offer these same games blackout-free, regardless of which broadcaster is producing the game on TV.

A subscription also includes content not available in NHL LIVE, such as more regional* hockey games for the Flames, Oilers, Canucks and Leafs, Hockey Central, Trade Deadline coverage, NHL Awards, Entry Draft and Free Agency, making it a more complete destination for hockey fans.


How come SN NOW is not available on my device of choice?  

SN NOW is available on the most popular devices in Canada, including game consoles, Apple TVs, Android TV, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV. Check back regularly for updates on device availability.


Can I access Sportsnet NOW from more than one device at a time?

Yes. A user is able to watch concurrently on up to two devices at a time.


Will radio feeds for NHL games still be available?

Yes. Radio feeds will be available on the NHL app and free of charge.


Does SN NOW have all the same features as NHL LIVE?  

SN NOW PREMIUM provides the same out-of-market games that are available on NHL LIVE, including games on-demand, plus many exciting features such as goal markers, in-game catch-up highlights, multi-length game recaps and the ability to watch up to four games at once with multi-game view.   

Features that will not be available for the 2022-23 NHL season on SN NOW include home and away broadcasts for every game and the ability to listen to radio broadcasts. Home and away broadcasts (where available) will be available for every Canadian team.

Are blackout rules the same on SN NOW PREMIUM as NHL LIVE?  

For out-of-market games, the same blackout rules apply, but for users in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario, SN NOW PREMIUM offers even more games because Sportsnet owns the in-market rights for the Flames, Oilers, Canucks, and Leafs.

I’m a French language customer. Will French games be included, or a French package available? 

 Select French games will be included in SN NOW PREMIUM for the upcoming season, however, a dedicated French pass will not be available.
