A new era of women’s hockey began on January 1 when the inaugural match of the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) was played between PWHL New York and PWHL Toronto.
The new league was formed following the dissolution of the PHF (Premier Hockey Federation) and PWHPA (Professional Women’s Hockey Player’s Association), and consists of six teams (New York, Boston, Minnesota, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal) made up of players from both defunct leagues.
Every game of the PWHL’s 72 game inaugural season is available to watch on cable or online, so if you’re looking to get into women’s hockey in 2024, it’s never been easier. Keep reading for everything you need to know about how to stream PWHL games.
How to Watch the PWHL on Cable:
If you want to watch the PWHL on TV, you’ll need to live in one of the three American markets where the league has teams in: New York, Boston, and Minnesota. The teams’ games air on the following channels:
- PWHL New York: MSG Networks
- PWHL Boston: NESN
- PWHL Minnesota: Bally Sports North
If you live in a market that carries any of those channels, you can watch games by simply tuning to the respective channels at game time.
How to Stream the PWHL Online:
