WAKEFIELD, Mass. - The Hockey East Association announced today detailed streaming information for all men’s and women’s games throughout the 2020-21 season.
Hockey East has once again partnered with NESN and ViacomCBS Digital to provide fans across the world the opportunity to view every single Hockey East game in 2020-21 both on linear television and digital platforms.
Each game of the men’s and women’s 2020-21 season will be streamed live online for free on one of several ViacomCBS Digital properties. All games will be made available across the U.S. and internationally on SportsLive, while all games televised on NESN and NESN+ and other select matchups will also be made available on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app outside of New England.
Games placed on NESN and NESN+ will be made available on ViacomCBS Digital platforms only outside of New England, while NESN, NESN+, and NESN’s authenticated streaming service will provide coverage across the region. Last week, Hockey East announced a slate of games that can be seen on NESN through January 1.
To watch games on SportsLive, fans can visit CollegeSportsLive.com and select Hockey East from the All Partners drop down menu. There, fans can select to view all men’s and women’s games. If tuning in from outside New England and looking for a game airing on NESN or NESN+, fans should select Hockey East on NESN from the All Partners drop down menu.
Full How to Watch details and direct links to each game will be updated every week in the Watch tab of the league’s website, HockeyEastOnline.com (Hockey East Watch Page).
Each of the 11 men’s teams will play 20 league contests while the 10 women’s programs will compete in 18 games that will count toward the final Army ROTC Hockey East Regular Season Standings to determine the 2020-21 Hockey East Regular Season Champion. Both the men’s and women’s schedules feature weekend home-and-home series and day-of-game travel, with the exception of games involving Maine and Vermont, to allow for consistent testing protocols throughout the season while adhering to all state guidelines.
Hockey East will defer to each campus to determine the status of fan attendance for home games in accordance with state and local health and safety guidance. Schools will make individual announcements about fan attendance.
Details on the 2021 Hockey East Tournament formats will be announced at a later date. Schedules are tentative and subject to change.
