In an announcement Friday evening, Comcast Sports Network revealed its plan to stream games online as soon as Tuesday, when Chicago takes on the Winnipeg Jets.
All games will be available to stream on CSNChicago.com and on the NBC Sports App to CSN Chicago subscribers.
Along with the streaming of regular season games, the pre/postgame shows as well as every game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs’ first round — should the Blackhawks make it (wink) — will be available to viewers.
In a statement from Phil Bedella, Vice President/General Manager of CSN Chicago, he expressed excitement in the addition to NBC Universal’s “TV Everywhere” campaign:
“We are thrilled to launch live streaming of our Chicago Blackhawks telecasts beginning this season. CSN is committed to providing viewers with access to our in-depth and compelling Blackhawks content in and out of the home and on any device.”
Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz also made it clear that bringing fans more access to the team is an important goal of the organization:

“It is important for the Blackhawks organization to make it easy to be a fan, and that means making games as easy to watch as possible. By live-streaming Blackhawks games, our fans can be assured that they have complete access to games, whether they are home, out to dinner or on the go.”
The streaming of games online now makes being a Blackhawks fan that much easier.
On a personal note, being a fan who does not have cable in his household, waiting for weekend games on WGN or waiting to stream games off NBC made it more difficult than it should be to follow and cheer for my favorite team.
The WGN radio broadcast is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but in this day and age, there is so much that goes into being able to watch the action live and really know more about the team’s on-ice performance.
This is no doubt welcome news to fans all across the Chicagoland area, especially since the old Blackhawks regime held the team off of the airwaves for so long, alienating the franchise for decades. The news of the upcoming streaming service can only bring more good to the franchise and the great fans of the Blackhawks.
