How to Watch the NHL All-Star Game 2024 Without Cable
Since the NHL All-Star Game broadcasts on ABC, it means it’s also streaming on internet-based alternative cable services, like DirecTV Stream, Fubo, Hulu + Live TV and others. In fact, some services even offer free trials, so if you act fast and sign up now, you could actually watch the outdoor hockey game for free.
Here’s how you can watch the NHL All-Star Game without cable below:
Packages from $10.99 per month
If you’d like to live stream the entire NHL All-Star Weekend, then ESPN+ is the best pick. The streaming service has the main event on Saturday, while it also streams other events from the weekend. Packages start at $10.99 per month.
Along with ESPN+, the Disney Bundle Trio comes with the ad-supported versions of Hulu and Disney+ for $14.99 per month. This is nearly 45 percent less than if you were to subscribe to each service individually. However, if you’d like to go ad-free, the Disney Bundle Trio goes for $24.99 per month.
BEST STREAMING SERVICE OVERALL
Packages from $64.99 per month
Watch ABC with DirecTV Stream. The cable alternative’s packages also offer ESPN for events during NHL All-Star Weekend, along with more than 75 other channels — such as NBC, Fox, CBS, AMC, Bravo, CNBC, Disney Channel and much more.
The streamer has a free five-day trial available, but that’s more than enough time to watch the entire NHL All-Star Weekend on ABC and ESPN. Afterward, you can either cancel the service or keep watching, with prices starting as low as $69.99 for the entry-level entertainment package. Other plans offer more than 105-150 channels, with prices ranging from $84.99 to $159.99 per month.
