The New Jersey Devils are an NHL team that plays in the Eastern Conference. The good news for Devils fans is there are two competing options for watching the NJ Devils live stream. Both DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” and fuboTV carry MSG, the regional sports network that broadcasts the majority of Devils regular season games to fans in New York, New Jersey, Southern Connecticut, and Northern PA.
DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is our top pick for watching the Devils because the platform offers all the channels you need to watch the NHL, including MSG, ESPN, and TNT. If you live outside of the Devils viewing territory, subscribing to ESPN Plus will get you coverage of most games.
How to watch tonight’s Devils game
We list the Devils TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below. Note that most Devils games are broadcast regionally. If you live outside of the Devils viewing territory, ESPN+ will stream most out-of-market Devils games.
The most important channels for Devils fans
In the New York metro area, including Northern NJ, southern CT, and northern CT, the Devils broadcast is carried on MSG for most regular season games. When the Devils are in a marquee national TV game, or in the playoffs, the games will be carried on ABC, ESPN, TNT, or TBS. A handful of times a season, the Devils may also appear in an exclusive ESPN+ streaming only game.
How to watch the Devils in-market
DIRECTV STREAM – best choice
You can watch the Devils in-market in the New York metro area on MSG with DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.” The package also includes the important channels for watching nationally televised hockey game, such as ABC, ESPN, TNT, and TBS.
You can watch the NY Giants on WNYW FOX 5 NY with DIRECTV STREAM.
You can watch the Devils in-market in the New York metro area on MSG with fuboTV in the base package.
The drawback with fuboTV is the lack of TNT, which is a key loss for NHL fans because of Turner Sport’s central roles in broadcasting marquee NHL matchups, including playoff games.
fuboTV also carries WNYW FOX 5 NY and local CBS affiliates for live streaming NFL games.
If you don’t live in New York or New Jersey
ESPN+ – best choice
ESPN+ is now the home of NHL.TV, the NHL’s out-of-market product. If you live outside of the NY area, you can watch most Devils games on ESPN+, subject to some blackout restrictions for exclusive national games. For example, if you are a Devils fan who currently lives in Los Angeles, you can watch almost every Devils regular season game on ESPN+.
How to watch the Devils on national TV
DIRECTV STREAM carries all the channels you need to watch the Devils regionally and nationally. The platforms listed below carry some nationally televised Devils games, but are missing MSG.
YouTube TV doesn’t carry ESPN+ or MSG, so the platform isn’t a good solution for watching the Devils week in and week out. However, YouTube TV does carry the channels you need to watch nationally televised NHL games, as well as the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Hulu + Live TV
Hulu + Live TV is a nice add-on for out-of-market Devils fans who want to watch the regular season and nationally televised games.
Hulu’s ESPN+ bundle folds the ESPN+ programming lineup plus ABC, ESPN, TNT, and TBS, on to the same app which gives out-of-market Devils fans complete coverage.
