Live streaming the Penguins: best regional options
If you live inside the AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh viewing territory, both fuboTV and DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” will air most Penguins games in-market.
DIRECTV STREAM – best choice
Although DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” and fuboTV both carry AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, the regional sports network that broadcasts Penguins games to local fans, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the winner here because the platform carries TNT, an important channel for watching the NHL that is absent from fuboTV’s channel lineup.

fuboTV carries AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, ABC, and ESPN in the base package, but is lacking TNT, which means major holes in coverage as the NHL season progresses.
