How to Watch the Detroit Red Wings Live Without Cable in 2022-23

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

The NHL season is well underway and the Wings look like a contender. Sports fans in Michigan can watch the Red Wings live on Bally Sports Detroit with DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” and Bally Sports Plus.

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 in 2022-23 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+.

How to watch the Red Wings on DIRECTV STREAM

In order to live stream Red Wings, Tigers, and Pistons games on DIRECTV STREAM it is necessary to upgrade to the more expensive “Choice” package.

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.

How to watch the Red Wings on Bally Sports Plus

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.

How to watch the Red Wings FAQ

Can I watch the Red Wings on FOX Sports Detroit?

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.

Can I watch the Red Wings on Hulu?

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+.
