Since Comcast Xfinity still won’t carry MSG Networks in the 2022-23 NHL season, many fans are wondering how they can watch every Devils game this winter.
Luckily, there is still hope.
If you’re a cord cutter, you can watch every Devils game on MSG via a subscription to DirecTV Stream or fuboTV, both of which have free trials. If you choose DirecTV Stream, the “choice package” ($89.99/mo.) carries MSG Network. If you want a new TV provider, Verizon Fios and DIRECTV both carry MSG Network.

There’s also ESPN+, which carries every out-of-market game (minus TNT-televised games), but this platform has local blackout restrictions, so local fans should stay wary of this. Still, ESPN+ may be the best option for out-of-market Devils fans.
This comes after Comcast dropped MSG Networks –– which carries Devils, Rangers, Knicks, Red Bulls and Islanders games –– when its carriage agreement expired last October. An MSG Network representative told NJ Advance Media Thursday that Comcast Xfinity will still not carry MSG in the upcoming NHL and NBA seasons.
“The NBA and NHL seasons are right around the corner, and unfortunately Comcast Xfinity subscribers will continue to miss out,” wrote an MSG Network representative. “We urge affected Comcast fans to contact their Attorney General to get a full refund from Comcast for MSG Networks programming they are not receiving or switch providers.”
Here’s Comcast Xfinity’s statement from October:
“We don’t believe that our customers should have to pay the millions of dollars in fees that MSG is demanding for some of the most expensive sports content in the country with extremely low viewership in our markets. We have successfully negotiated thousands of agreements with programmers and reached agreements in almost every instance and are disappointed that MSG decided to pull their content rather than reach a fair agreement.”
