If you live in the Penguins TV market, you can watch most of those games on SportsNet Pittsburgh. Those teams’ games used to air on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh. However, AT&T sold the channel to the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the channel has been rebranded as SportsNet Pittsburgh. In welcome news to fans, little has changed in the way of distribution, and the channel is still available on DIRECTV STREAM and fubo.
DIRECTV STREAM Carries SportsNet Pittsburgh
DIRECTV STREAM provides SportsNet Pittsburgh their “Choice” package for $108.99 per month. They also carry FOX, ESPN, and TBS, so if a Penguins game airs nationally, it will be on one of those networks.
The service provides a 5-day Free trial, and doesn’t force you into a contract. You can cancel at any time. The service also includes a cloud DVR service with unlimited storage, but recordings are only available for up to 9 months.

fuboTV offers subscribers local and cable TV channels just as if you subscribed to a cable TV package. For subscribers living in Pittsburgh and the surrounding TV market, fuboTV carries SportsNet Pittsburgh in its channel lineup. However, fuboTV subscribers in this area will be subject to a mandatory regional sports fee that could amount to an additional $13.99 per month.

Like cable, SportsNet Pittsburgh is only available through fuboTV if you live in the Pittsburgh TV market. I recommend checking their website to find the channels they offer in your area using this link.
FuboTV offers a 1-Week Free Trial. There is no contract, and you can cancel any time. If you cancel during your free trial, you will not be charged at all. Here are some features included with your subscription to fuboTV:

If you live outside the SportsNet Pittsburgh broadcast area, it won’t be in your channel lineup. This is true of whether you use streaming services or subscribe to cable TV. However, you can check out Watching the Penguins live online.
