    I don't know how it is with ESPN+, but with my NHL.tv streaming subscription, I can pick and choose any game of the season prior today and watch from start to finish. So there is no need to DVR anything, its already all done for you.

    Except (and a big exception) for blacked out games like the local Caps, which are only able to stream previously held games after 2 days from the initial broadcast. And I think that goes for any national broadcasts games on NBC or NBCSN as well.

    I am not sure how ESPN+ will handle local blackouts.

    It hasn't bothered me too much before because I'm the dumbass that pays for both cable and online subscriptions, but yeah it's expensive.

    My guess is they will handle local blackouts the same way, you have to watch them on your local channel.

    And you and me both when it comes to subscribing to cable (youtube.tv) and streaming services galore. Its a crime racket I tell ya!

    I’ve had SlingTv for 5 years now with no complaints. Love the mix and match packages on a month to month basis. Pretty pissed that regional sports networks are getting pulled off of Sling. I’m wondering if NBC ends up being the second TV contract and they end up putting a lot of the sports, regional included, on Peacock over other streaming services.

    The app stores everything so you don't have the need to DVR. Currently the NHL.tv app allows you to even "hide scores" which allows you to hide the scores and jump in at any point after the game started. For example I'm constantly getting home around 745 - 800 due to my sons baseball practice. I sit down and am able to watch the games and fast forward through any commercial breaks/intermissions and usually catch up live sometime in the 3rd period.
