It appears GM Steve Yzerman is making the moves necessary to return the Red Wings to their former glory days. You can live stream Red Wings games on a host of different devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, iPhone, and more.
Our top pick for watching the Red Wings is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.” With DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” Detroiters can watch all of their local pro sports teams, including the Lions, as well as Michigan and Michigan State, all on one platform. Out-of-market Wings fans can follow the team on ESPN+.
The most important channels for Red Wings fans
Bally Sports Detroit, formerly called FOX Sports Detroit, is the regional sports network that broadcasts most regular season Red Wings games to local fans. When the Wings are on national TV, or in the playoffs, the games will air on ABC, ESPN, and TNT.

If you live in the Detroit area
The DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” package comes with Big Ten Network, FS1, WJBK FOX 2 Detroit, and both ESPN and ESPN2, for watching UM football and basketball, MSU football and basketball, NFL action, and more.
Bally Sports Plus carries Bally Sports Detroit, however, that is the only channel you will get if you sign up for Bally Sports Plus in Michigan. Bally Sports Plus doesn’t carry ABC, ESPN, or TNT, which leaves major holes in its NHL coverage.
Outside Michigan & Toledo
Outside of Michigan, out-of-market Wings fans can follow the season on ESPN+.
The old FOX Sports Detroit has been rebranded Bally Sports Detroit, and is the channel that airs most Red Wings games. Same channel, different name. Both DIRECTV STREAM and Bally Sports Plus live stream Bally Sports Detroit.
You cannot watch the Red Wings on Hulu + Live TV if you live in Michigan because the platform doesn’t carry Bally Sports Detroit. If you live outside of Michigan, you can watch Wings games on Hulu with the ESPN Plus bundle, but it is also possible to save money, skip Hulu altogether, and just sign up for ESPN+.
