If you live in New York, New Jersey, Southern Connecticut, or Northern PA, you can live stream New York Islanders games on MSG+ with fuboTV or DIRECTV STREAM. Both live TV streaming services support a wide array of streaming devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, iPhone and more.
Our top pick for watching the Islanders in-market is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” which is the only live TV streaming package that combines MSG+ with ABC, ESPN, and TNT for watching nationally televised NHL games, including the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Out-of-market Islanders fans can watch most games on ESPN+.
How to watch tonight’s Islanders game
For fans in the NY and NJ area, most Islanders games will air on MSG+. The Islanders are rarely featured on national TV, however, when the team is included in a national game, the broadcast will be on ABC, ESPN, ESPN+, TNT, or TBS.
The most important channels for Islanders fans
For local Islanders fans, MSG+, the regional sports network that carries several NY area pro sports teams, including the Islanders, is the most important channel. Nationally televised NHL games air on ABC, ESPN, TNT, and TBS.
Best options for local Islanders fans
DIRECTV STREAM – great option for Islanders and NY sports
Although an upgrade to the more expensive “Choice” package is required, Islanders fans can watch MSG+ on DIRECTV STREAM.
With DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” sports fans in NY can also watch the Knicks, Nets, Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Devils, and Rangers, making the platform a great choice if you want to follow all your local teams, not just the Islanders.
fuboTV carries most every Islanders game on MSG+ for in-market fans. The drawback with fuboTV for NHL fans is the platform’s lack of TNT.
Although you can live stream NFL games on fuboTV, including the Giants and Jets, fuboTV doesn’t carry the wide selection of NY sports teams that are offered through DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”
If you don’t live in NY or NJ
ESPN+ – watch the Islanders out-of-market
Outside of the NY area, NHL fans can watch the Islanders out-of-market on ESPN+.
