A Guide To Watching Women’s College Hockey
UPDATES IN BOLD
Today I decided to go through the sites of all NCAA Division I Women’s hockey teams to see what they had available for video content. Generally the home team is the sole video broadcaster so if your team is on the road against someone who doesn’t offer video, you’re out of luck.
Author’s Note: This is going to be a bit of a work in progress as several teams do not post links until game day and some teams don’t play at home again for a month.
Syracuse should in theory use Eversport (like the rest of the CHA, more on that later), but I couldn’t find any video links. Northeastern, Maine, and Minnesota State also use streaming providers, but again, no purchase links, so I’m not really sure.
Free Home Games:
- St. Lawrence
- Minnesota State
- Boston College
- Boston University
I’ve watched everyone except for St. Lawrence on this list. Quinnipiac probably has the best feed, but Boston College has free replays of most games.
The Rest of the Field:
I’m not sure how the Big Ten Network applies to hockey, but $14 to at least be able to watch Wisconsin and Minnesota is a good deal. Minnesota allows a free feed with a login with a cable provider.
Ivy League TV
Screw the Ivy League. All the Ivy League schools are rolling in money and they can’t provide free streaming for a less watched sport like Women’s hockey? Maybe if they handed out fewer
athletic erm academic scholarships to their athletes. Worth noting too that Ivy League Network’s 4 month pass will not cover a full hockey season. I hope Harvard makes the NCAA championship just so they can get run over by Minnesota or Boston College.
Eversport and the CHA
MEGA SCREW the CHA. The CHA is a total dumpster of a conference, most of its schools probably wouldn’t win D-III championships, and they have the worst streaming deal? $10 a game? $30 a month? I hope they get their auto-bid taken away.
