If you live in Canada, then all Oilers games are available in all regions through Sportsnet+ (formerly Sportsnet NOW) premium because they’re available to out-of-market Canadian subscribers, plus in-market subscribers to Premium get all Sportsnet games in their region.
However, If you are in the United States, then ESPN+ will carry any Oilers game this season that isn’t exclusive to a national broadcast on ESPN or TNT. Games will also be blacked out if you live in the opposing team’s market. In those cases, you would need your local team’s Regional Sports Network.
If the Oilers aren’t playing your local NHL team much this season, then you can subscribe directly to ESPN+ and pick up Sling Orange for Oilers games on TNT and ESPN. Sling also has an option for NHL Network as well.
However, if the Oilers are playing your local team a lot this season, then people who live in the Blackhawks, Flyers, Sharks, or Capitals TV Market should pick up Hulu Live TV as that streaming service includes ESPN+ along with ESPN and TNT. Other Markets will want to subscribe directly to ESPN+ for the bulk of Oilers games and then pick up DIRECTV STREAM’s Choice Plan for games when your local team is playing the Oilers.
DIRECTV STREAM includes ESPN and TNT, and they carry every US-based NHL team’s RSN (if you live in that market) except for the Flyers.
