How to watch the 2020-21 college hockey season

All the stream links you’ll need!

College hockey is back and here’s how you can watch.

Hockey East

Finding Hockey East games is both easy and hard. All of the games will be streamed online for free through College Sports Live (a CBS Sports Digital platform). That’s the easy part.

The harder part is know where to find them exactly on College Sports Live.

If the game is being broadcast on NESN, under partners scroll to Hockey East on NESN. Only six games in 2020 will be under this tab as NESN is only broadcasting six women’s college hockey games in the first month of the season. The caveat to this is that if you live in the NESN broadcast area, these games will be blacked out to you.

If the game is not on NESN, the games will be under the Hockey East tab.
