The St. Louis Blues are taking on the Boston Bruins tonight in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, with the winner of tonight’s game taking home the cup.
This the first time the championship series has gone to Game 7 since 2011, a series that also involved the Bruins.
A win tonight for the St. Louis Blues would be the team’s first NHL title. If the Bruins win, they’ll be taking home the cup for the 7th time.
Tonight’s game starts at 8pm ET in Boston and will be broadcast on NBC. That means if you have cable or a television with a digital antenna you should be able to tune in and watch the game for free.
If you don’t have cable and still want to catch the game, you have a number of solid streaming opportunities as well:
If you’re just trying to catch tonight’s game, then Sling is probably your best bet. If you’ve never tried it before, the service offers a 1-week free trial. If you have, then the package with NBC is priced at just $25 a month, $15 less than its nearest competitor.
Right now Sling also has a deal where you can try the service for three months for just $15 a month before it goes up to that $25/mo price. For NBC you want to snag the “Blue” package. Worth noting, Sling only offers NBC in select markets, so you’ll want to make sure yours is one of the supported ones before you go through that signup process.
DirecTV Now, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV and fubo TV
All the major players in the streaming space also offer NBC as an option. If you haven’t tried them all, each one offers a free one-week trial that you could take advantage of just to catch tonight’s game.
If you forget to cancel your free trial, each is priced between $40-$45 a month.
Just like Sling, NBC is only offered in select markets on each service. Before you commit to one, ensure that your market is one of those the service supports.
