Are you a fan of New England sports, but don’t have cable? You can still watch Boston Red Sox, and Bruins games using a live streaming service, just as if you had NESN (New England Sports Network) through cable. You can watch online through the web or on your TV by using a streaming device like a Roku.

Two live streaming services offer NESN in their channel lineup. However, you have to live in their broadcast area, which consists of all of New England except Fairfield County, CT. This is true whether watching NESN through cable TV or any TV streaming services mentioned below.
