What can French language customers experience with NHL LIVE™?

Games that are produced in French language are accessible within NHL LIVE™, subject to NHL rules around blackouts and TV authentication, which vary by region.

For French language games the out-of-market rules still apply within NHL LIVE™.


The NHL LIVE streaming service will no longer be available in Canada at the conclusion of this NHL® season, but next season you can use SN NOW to watch all the same out-of-market and national games, all Stanley Cup Playoffs matchups, plus even more regional games with fewer blackouts*.


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


*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. For more information, visit the Sportsnet NOW support blog article at
