The second is a paid service which gives hardcore fans live access to the footage shot for coaches and the judiciary to review the games – it is a basic single camera shoot with no commentary or scorebug. The cost of watching a single game is US$8 or for just US$25 you can have access to every single game plus everything on-demand too with an ‘Online Season Pass’. If you can’t miss a minute, this is the service for you – Sign up here.

The third is our on-demand service, this gives you full access to every game in the archive to watch whenever you want here on It also gives you exclusive access to our magazine highlights show ‘Top Shelf’ before it airs on television. If you have an ‘Online Season Pass’, you already have access.

Whatever you want to enjoy, we have the NZIHL covered.


This is new technology, New Zealand doesn’t have great internet infrastructure and there will be hiccups along the way. Know that if the stream drops out, it will automatically reinitialise after a few seconds. Turning off unneeded applications on your computer will improve the feed, or try a different device. The paid feeds are for the super fans who can’t miss a second of any game, they do not feature a live scorebug and often won’t include commentary.

An online season pass means you get 57 hockey games/episodes for about 50c each, it’s crazy value for money, please be kind if we have technical difficulties.

If this initiative is well supported and lots of people sign up, we will work to maintain the service and improve it in the future.

Thank you for supporting New Zealand ice hockey.
