After losing in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals last season, the Hurricanes made some big changes this offseason. The most notable acquisition was Brent Burns, who will replace Tony DeAngelo on the blue line.
The team also signed veteran center Paul Stasny, who is eyeing another Stanley Cup run. Forward Max Pacioretty, who was acquired by Vegas, won’t return from injury until the second half of the season, but should also provide a spark.
The Hurricanes are hoping Jesperi Kotkaniemi, who they signed an eight-year contract with in March, makes the jump to replace lost Vincent Trocheck.
Watch Hurricanes games on Bally Sports South with a live streaming service
If you plan to broadcast all Carolina Hurricanes games, including on Bally Sports South, you will need a live TV streaming service. After YouTube TV, Hulu, fuboTV and Sling TV each dropped Bally Sports South, your options are now more limited.
Luckily, you can still stream all of the Hurricanes games with a DIRECTV Choice Plan subscription, which is available with a 5-day free trial. The service also includes ESPN and TNT – so you’ll get all your Hurricanes action. On Bally Sports South, you can also stream Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Dream games.
For the 2022 season, the plan now includes unlimited DVR and unlimited in-home streams. For a limited time, you can get $10 off your first five months, after a 5-day free trial.
Watch Hurricanes games on Bally Sports+ with the Bally Sports app
If you have access to Bally Sports South through your cable, satellite or streaming provider, you can also stream Hurricanes games live in the Bally Sports app.
To access a 24/7 live stream of Bally Sports South, including live Hurricanes and Cavs games, you will still need to authenticate with your TV Everywhere credentials. For streamers, this means those who subscribe to DIRECTV STREAM can use the app – as they are the only live TV streaming service that carries the channel.
But thankfully, starting with the 2022-23 NHL season, you can now watch the Hurricanes on the Bally Sports app, without cable or satellite, but with a subscription to Bally Sports+. For $19.99 per month and $189.99 per year, you’ll get access to all Hurricanes games broadcast on Bally Sports South.
Watch the out-of-market Hurricanes Games on ESPN+
If you live outside of North Carolina and the wider region, you can stream Hurricanes games with NHL Power Play on ESPN+, the league’s out-of-market package, which has been rebranded from NHL.TV. With your subscription, you’ll get access to 1,050 out-of-market NHL games, as well as about 75 nationally televised games on ESPN+ (six of which feature the Hurricanes).
Watch Carolina Hurricanes games televised nationally with a streaming service
For games that air nationally on ESPN, TNT, or NHL Network, you have plenty of streaming options. Most services like Hulu Live TV, fuboTV, DIRECTV STREAM, Sling TV, and YouTube TV carry these channels.
The cheapest option is Sling TV’s Orange plan, which is currently available with 50% off your first month. The service includes ESPN and TNT, with the option to add NHL Network as part of their Sports Extra add-on.
Just like this season, there will be additional games airing exclusively on ESPN+, which will also simulcast on Hulu, and are included with your Hulu+ Live TV subscription. Games shown on ABC will also be shown on ESPN+, while select games on ESPN will be shown on ESPN+.
The Hurricanes will have three games on TNT, while six telecasts will be exclusively available on ESPN+/Hulu, along with two more on ESPN – including the Stadium Series against the Washington Capitals.
