The Vegas Golden Knights and their local broadcast partner Scripps Sports have launched their new KnightTime+ streaming service to livestream 69 regular season games this upcoming season as the NHL team adapts to the changing regional sports landscape. 

Fans can purchase a full-season pass to KnightTime+ for $69.99 or single games for $6.99. The new streaming app can be downloaded on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, iOS, and Roku-enabled devices, while a KnightTime+ web version has also been launched. 

KnightTime+ will also stream six Golden Knights preseason games and the first round of the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs if Vegas makes the postseason after winning last year’s Stanley Cup Finals over the Florida Panthers. All nationally broadcasted Knights games shown through NHL partners ESPN and Turner Sports will not stream on KnightTime+.

Fans must be located within the Knights’ television territory– which spans Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and certain counties in California, Nebraska, and Arizona—to be eligible to watch games through KnightTime+. The service was developed by streaming technology provider ViewLift

Scripps announced its multi-year local broadcasting deal with the Vegas Golden Knights in May as The E.W. Scripps Company is expanding its presence in the U.S. sports market as competitors falter. Warner Bros. Discovery plans to exit the regional sports network business by the end of this year while Diamond Sports-owned RSNs face bankruptcy. 

In the NBA, the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns will also be debuting streaming services this upcoming season as part of their new regional media rights models
