If you live in the Dallas Stars TV market, most season home games will air on Bally Sports Southwest. However, If a game is airing on ESPN or TNT, it may blackout your local Bally Sports Southwest broadcast. You can get around this by subscribing to DIRECTV STREAM‘s choice package as the service carries Bally Sports Southwest, ESPN, and TNT.
If you live outside the Stars Market, then ESPN+ will carry any Stars Game this season that isn’t exclusive to a national broadcast as long as you don’t live in the opposing team’s market. While you could subscribe to Hulu and have access to ESPN+, ESPN, and TNT, it may be a better move to subscribe directly to ESPN+ and pick up Sling Orange as it’s cheaper and carries TNT and ESPN, and you can add NHL Network.
Read on for more information on watching the next Stars game and every Dallas Stars game this season, no matter where you live.

Upcoming Stars games are in the table below. If the "Stars RSN" shows blank that week, then you must watch the game on the National Network. If the game is showing on the Stars RSN, and the National Network indicates the game is on "ESPN+" then those living in the Stars TV Market will not be able to stream the game on ESPN+ and have to watch on the Stars RSN.
If you are a Stars fan living in the opponent's TV market, and the National Network indicates the game is on "ESPN+," then you will need to watch the game on the opponent's RSN. The National game may be an "ESPN+" Exclusive, which means the game will not air on either RSN.
