HOW TO STREAM THE JETS AND LEAFS WITHOUT BLACKOUTS IN CANADA
If you live in the grey highlighted region of Northern Ontario, you live in the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs broadcasting region.
Since NHL LIVETM is an out-of-market product, this means that with a subscription, you are blacked out from viewing the “home” team in any given market. To simplify, if you live within the grey boundary of Ontario, you will be blacked out from watching regional Jets or Maple Leafs games.
Note: if you are a Jets or Leafs fan but live outside of Manitoba, Northwestern, Central or Southern Ontario, an NHL LIVETM subscription allows you to stream the Jets and Leafs, 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 Northwestern Ontario can expect with a subscription to NHL LIVETM.
With a full season subscription to NHL LIVETM, you would be blacked out from streaming 42 Jets and 26 Maple Leafs regional games. You would, however, be able to stream all national games for both teams—14 Jets games and 30 Maple Leafs games.
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 Jets and Maple Leafs games, you would also get to watch 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.
