UNO Hockey on TV 2016-17

While most people who read this blog are going to be AT the UNO Hockey games (at least the home ones!), I like to do a roundup post each season that has the TV schedule so you can either catch games that you can't make it to, or re-watch awesome match-ups.

I'll be updating this post as the season goes on as additional games on TV are announced. As of this update (Sept. 29, 2016), the Mavs will be featured in 10 televised games (not including
We LOVE our subscription. We have the full conference subscription, so it allows us to watch most of the UNO Hockey away games as well as matchups between other conference foes.

According to the NCHC news release, this year's conference annual pass will have access to more than 130 games throughout the season, including almost all conference and home non-conference games. It will also include all exhibition games and the NCHC Tournament quarterfinal games.

The cost for a conference annual pass for this season is $104.95 -- making the cost less than $1 a game. (There was an earlybird special in August that was even less -- watch for that next year.) Or you can get a conference monthly pass for $24.95/month.

You can also get a school-specific annual pass (for example, JUST UNO Hockey games) for $89.95, or a school-specific monthly pass for $18.95 per month.

If you have questions about, contact NeuLion at

Please note: If you purchase a school-specific annual pass or monthly pass, these subscriptions automatically renew each year unless cancelled.

All games shown on during the upcoming season will be in high definition (HD).

New this year: Viewers with subscriptions will be able to watch on both Apple TV and Roku devices. (Last year, we mirrored our feed to our TV using our iPad and Apple TV, but this year, you can watch it natively on the tv). Or, you can stream games from on any desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device with an Internet connection.

CBS Sports Network
One thing I don't like about games shown on CBS Sports Network is that these games are then not available on

We asked the NCHC about this, and this was the answer:

The short answer:
"The CBSSN contract was created and signed before existed and CBSSN wanted the digital rights, so they have them."
