Frequently Asked Questions

What region am I in? Why are some games blacked out?

Regional blackouts are determined based on your physical location and apply to broadcasts that have been sold regionally, per league or team agreements. Every team has regional (available to viewers in a team’s region only) and national (available to everyone across the country) games in a season. The map below outlines which regional team games can be seen in which region.

What’s the difference between SN NOW STANDARD and SN NOW PREMIUM?

Standard includes over 300 total NHL games, including all games of the Oilers, Flames or Canucks, or 56 Maple Leafs games, depending on where you live. To get one of these team’s regional games, you must reside within their broadcast region as regional blackouts apply.

Premium has the same hockey content as Standard, plus hundreds of additional out-of-market games. This means it allows you to watch teams that aren’t your local ones. Limited blackout restrictions apply.

In addition to more NHL games, subscribers also get Bundesliga, FA Cup, United Rugby Championship, Premiership Rugby, National Rugby League, Super League Rugby and IndyCar.
