What is the difference between Out-of-Market and In-Market NHL games?

Out-of-market vs. in-market refers to where you’re watching a game from. It is to do with your physical location at the time of watching a game, and not whether a team is playing at home or on the road.

Out-of-market refers to games that are available outside of the designated broadcast region you live in.

  • For example: A Toronto Maple Leaf fan that lives in Vancouver would be considered out-of-market for Leaf games, as the Canucks are the in-market team. Out-of-market fans is what NHL LIVE is designed for.

In-market refers to games that are available within your designated broadcast region. In-market games are not available within NHL LIVE.

  • For example: A Toronto Maple Leaf fan that lives in Toronto would be considered in-market for Leaf games
