NHL National TV schedule for the 2023-24 season will feature 62 games on TNT network and 100 games across multiple ESPN networks.

16 regular season games will be broadcast live on ABC, 34 on ESPN, 72 on ESPN+, and 50 on Hulu. The new season will begin on Oct 10, 2023.

Edmonton Oilers have the most number of games shown on US national television channels at 18, followed by the Colorado Avalanche at 17.
