What Hulu Live TV package do you need to watch the NHL?

Take a quick look at your options. To watch the NHL on Hulu Live, you have a standard or ad-free subscription to choose from. 

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV provides you with 65 channels of live and on-demand TV for $55/mo. There’s no contract — opt for service month to month as you’d like. Besides the big sports channels such as ESPN and NBCSN, you’ll have access to the regional sports networks to watch your local team. The main difference between the two subscriptions is the ads. You’ll have to sit through a few, even when watching a recorded match because the DVR doesn’t allow fast-forwarding. 

Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV

For an extra $6/mo., you can skip ads that interrupt the game. There are other perks for the extra money such as Hulu Watch Party. You can host a virtual get-together with up to eight friends to view NHL on Hulu. In addition, you can download movies and recordings to watch offline later.

Does Hulu Live TV require an add-on to watch the NHL?

You won’t need any other channel add-ons to catch all the NHL games. But there is an upgrade that may be worthwhile — if you have the standard Hulu Live subscription, the enhanced Cloud DVR add-on for $9.99/mo. lets you fast forward through recorded commercials. Bundle it with the Unlimited Screens add-on and you can fast forward, as well as stream more than two screens at a time, for $14.99/mo. for both.
