When and Where to Watch the Stanely Cup Finals?

The Stanley Cup Finals are the culmination of this year's Playoffs, which began back on August 1st. The Finals are kicking off on September 19th and, if all seven games are played, will end on September 30th. In the United States, the events are broadcast by NBC and NBC Sports.

How Can I Live Stream the Stanley Cup Finals?

The Stanley Cup Finals are kicking off, and it's important we figure out how to watch the events online. Since the Finals are broadcast by both NBC and NBC Sports, it's going to be easy to find the networks online. One of our favorite platforms to watch the Stanley Cup Finals online on fuboTV.

The service features a single bundle of networks where you'll find both NBC and NBC Sports. The bundle is part of several plans where you'll find additional channel packs and premium networks, offered at discounted prices. More channel packs and premium networks can be added to your account should you desire so.

fuboTV works with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and so on.

While we prefer fuboTV for sports events as it has a ton of dedicated channels, this is not the only way to watch the Stanely Cup Finals.

Hulu is a pretty great service with a single bundle of networks where you'll find both NBC and NBC Sports. You can add a couple of channel packs to your account or several premium networks. When you subscribe to the Live TV service on Hulu, you'll also get access to the On-Demand library, so you have two platforms to play with. Start your free trial on Hulu!

Sling TV is another solid option as it features a ton of customization options. There are three bundles here, but NBC and NBC Sports are only part of two of them, specifically Blue and Orange + Blue. If you go with the Blue bundle, you'll get to watch content on three devices simultaneously, while the Orange + Blue bundle offers you four simultaneous streams. You can then add a ton of channel packs and premium networks to your account, so you should check those out as well. Watch 3 Days Free on Sling TV Now!

How to Watch the Stanley Cup Finals Anywhere?

If you happen to be traveling outside of the United States when the Stanley Cup Finals are on, you can still follow the event on your chosen live TV service. The problem is that when you're away, your access is blocked, as the platforms are only available on US territory. However, you can bypass the problem entirely by using a VPN, which can route your Internet connection and assign a new IP address to your device.

If you don't know which VPN to use, we recommend ExpressVPN, which is a great tool, with thousands of servers in all corners of the world and some great privacy features.
