World Junior Hockey Championship: How to Watch Online

The 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship is upon us (starting on Boxing Day of 2012) — Yep, the World Juniors — Canada’s Christmas past time. If you don’t have TSN you likely are looking for an online live stream of the Team Canada games. You have a few options:

  • TSN’s Pay Per View (Live and On Demand feeds) will run you $19.99 plus tax for the entire tournament or $3.99 per game — I’m guessing this is similar to the Euro soccer online feed they streamed in the summer.
  • AtdheNet.TV — No promises on this one (I’ll try to update this once the games start) but usually you can find streamed sports here or on one its many mirror sites. The quality will *not* be great and you’ll go through some crap upon startup (shady banner ads and such — just don’t download and install anything!), but it will be free. Again, I’m doubtful on this one as most countries don’t really care about the World Juniors – but, it’s worth a shot if you don’t want to shell out to watch.

As for watching it at your local sports bar, that won’t quite work due to the times the games are on: It appears they’re starting anywhere from 4am to 8:30am Eastern Time. I suppose if they open early and don’t serve beer that may work!

    Would you recommend the TSN option, based on your experience with their services? Do you know if any networks/websites will be re-playing the games at more EST-friendly times?

    @Parker — The Euro soccer feed by TSN was decent overall – but not perfect. Given the games are at a crazy time EST (live) I would guess the feed should be reliable (i.e. less viewers). TSN is rebroadcasting at more EST-friendly times as well.
