Streaming the Pens??

Armstrong cable going up again. I really want to cut it. I think between Netflix, local antenna, maybe sling I can find plenty of things to watch except Pens. I know about NHL.com streaming but really bad reviews for them plus blackouts. Anyone find a reliable way to watch Pens games without the cable?

I am interested in this as well. We have been thinking about getting away from cable. Only major hangup is the hockey games. I can live without the pirates.

I cut the cable (and satellite) right after the playoffs last year and live sports is what I miss the most. Finding live streams of the games is iffy. Maybe if I was not a techtard I could do better, but even some younger guys I know that have these skills don't get to see every game. If there is a reliable solution, I don't know what it is.

IPTV

Pay for a service that's cheaper than cable or satellite and stream it through a Fire Stick or the like. I'm not going to do all the research for you, but start with that....

I'm cutting the Dish after they jack my rates back up. Every time I try to cancel it they offer me a $40/month off which makes it about $45/month and is enough to keep me hooked up to them. When they stop offering I'm shutting it down.

Just be sure you can get locals on antenna if that's important to you . The HD antennas work great if you can get reception, but there are areas they won't work due to the signal being blocked by topography, buildings , trees, ect. I've seen them work in one location and 10 feet away not work at all. Or you can always put up an old time antenna tower.

Well we cut out the dish. I have seen the last several games. If you google Penguins vs (insert team) live stream you can usually find a free one to watch somewhere.

We cut Dish as well. Most every IPTV service I've looked at has a plethora of sports channels including: NFL Sunday Ticket, NHL Center Ice, NBA and MLB as well as most of the Fox Sports Networks, and the national sports networks like ESPN and NBCSN, etc. On top of that there's UK sports channels that are broadcasting our local Pens homers on those channels even though I can't find them on US channels, oddly enough. All that and more for an initial outlay of $40 for a firestick, $8/month for IPTV and whatever it costs for high speed internet that you're almost assuredly already paying for anyway. A VPN is a good idea too, but that can be had cheap as well....a few dollars a month.
