HOW TO STREAM THE OILERS AND FLAMES WITHOUT BLACKOUTS IN CANADA
If you live in portion highlighted in red and orange (Alberta), you live in both the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers broadcasting region.
Since NHL LIVE™ is an out-of-market product, this means that with a subscription, you are blacked out from streaming the “home” team in any given market. To simplify, if you live within the red and orange area, encompassing all of Alberta, you will be blacked out from watching regional Flames and Oilers games.
Note: If you are a Flames or Oilers fan but live outside of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nunavut or the Northwest Territories , an NHL LIVE™subscription allows you to stream the Flames and Oilers, as you are then out-of-market.
Note: The above game count chart is for guidance purposes and reflects the shortened 2020-21 NHL season. The number of games beside each team is what a user in Alberta can expect with a subscription to NHL LIVE™.
With a full season subscription to NHL LIVE™, you would be blacked out from streaming 31 Flames and Oilers regional games. You would, however, be able to stream all 25 national games for the Flames and Oilers. National games are ones that can be viewed by everybody from coast-to-coast, such as Hockey Night in Canada and Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey.
Aside from national Flames and Oilers games, you would also be able to stream over 500 national and out-of-market NHL games (including all outdoor games and regional games for other teams), as well as the entire 2021 Stanley Cup® Playoffs.
