With the Florida Panthers playing host to the Anaheim Ducks on April 7, any channel that you may be tuned into will undoubtedly show the exciting matchup between these Pacific Division rivals.
The NHL is officially back and there’s a wealth of games on the schedule, so let’s dive into the specifics of what channel to watch to get the best Ducks vs. Panthers experience.
Where Can I Watch?
If you’ve never been to a hockey game and are wondering where to start, consider the best places to watch the game based on the time and distance from you. Keep in mind that some games will be shown on tape delay, so make sure that you check the listings beforehand.
If you’re looking for a place that’s very close to you, you have a number of options including your local television station or an online streaming service.
The best option, however, is to find a bar or restaurant that has televisions installed and watch the game there. You can get a drink, eat some chicken wings, and still get the thrill of the game without missing a beat.
When Is The Best Time To Watch?
The best time to watch the game is based on your own personal preferences. If you want to be among the first to see the action, you should probably be at the game. If, however, you’d like to catch some of the end of the game, you can usually find it online sooner than you can find it on television.
In the grand scheme of things, there’s not a bad time to watch the hockey game. If you happen to be at a bar or restaurant that doesn’t have televisions, you can ask the bartender to pull some games for you. Alternatively, you can always check online and see if there are any other options besides the ones mentioned above.
What Channel Does The Game Air On?
The Florida Panthers will be playing host to the Anaheim Ducks on April 7 at 7:00 p.m. What television channel is this game going to be aired on?
The answer to this question is NBC Sports Florida, channel 5. This will be the case for all games this season except for those that are on the CBC or NHL Network. The puck will be dropped at 7:00 p.m. and the game will be shown in its entirety.
Can I Get My Sports And Movies Combined?
If you subscribe to the NFL Network or MLB Network, you can get both professional sports and movies delivered to your doorstep, with the added bonus of being able to cancel each service separately. If you have a combined sports and movie subscription, you can only cancel one of the services.
The best part about having both sports and movies delivered is that you don’t have to choose between the two. You can find any show that you want to watch and whenever a game is on, you can tune in to see your favorite players from both the hockey and football leagues. Just make sure that you’re aware of the NHL’s blackouts policy before you purchase a combined TV package. Many cable companies have the blackout rule implemented, so you may not be able to view some games if they are not shown on your local television station.
How Do I Set My DVR To Record The Games?
If you own a digital video recorder (DVR), you can set it to record the games automatically. Many DVRs will store the shows for you based on what’s available and what you watch. If you remember some of the shows that you recorded or watched as a kid, this is the perfect opportunity to relive those golden days. Just check the channel guide to see what’s available and set your DVR accordingly.
