HOW TO STREAM THE OILERS, FLAMES AND JETS WITHOUT BLACKOUTS
If you live in the portion that is highlighted in red, orange and grey (Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories or Nunavut), you live in one of the most unique broadcast regions in Canada.
Technically, the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets are all your local team. Since NHL LIVETM 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, orange and grey area, encompassing Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, you will be blacked out from watching regional Flames, Oilers and Jets games.
Note: If you are a Oilers, Flames or Jets fan but live outside of Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, an NHL LIVETM subscription allows you to stream the Oilers, Flames and Jets, 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 Saskatchewan 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, as well as 31 Flames and Oilers regional games. You would, however, be able to stream all national games for all three teams— 25 each for the Oilers and Flames, and 14 Jets games.
National games are ones that can be viewed by everybody from coast-to-coast on programs such as Hockey Night in Canada and Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey. Aside from national Jets, Flames and Oilers games, you would also get 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.
