Hi folks! So my fiance and I will be getting married next April at the height of hockey playoffs, we are huge Washington Capitals fans and are anticipating a great playoff run so my question is - can anyone recommend an all-inclusive Caribbean resort that we will be able to watch American hockey? Haha odd request, I know, but it is something we are both passionate about!

    I think you're going to have to call some resorts for this one! Its such a specific request and even though pretty much all the hotels will have tv's, they might not be able to access the right channel. So I think calling possible venues is the best way to go for youSmiley laugh

    You're probably right! I almost wonder if we could being our Amazon fire stick with us and be able to get our channels on demand?

    Yeah, possibly!! Im not sure how that works when you are on a different network/provider or so... but also maybe something to ask the hotels!

    Are you getting married in the Caribbeans ,or is that where you're going for your honeymoon?

    Hi Julia!

    The Carribean will be a beautiful location for your honeymoon!

    Perhaps reach out to a few resorts you and your FS love and see if they will be covering it.

    Alternatively, is there a way you can watch the games online? Does your cable have an online subscription service you could upgrade to? Could be worth exploring Smiley smile

    Most all inclusives have one sports bar with a full cable package, but I'd call and double check.

    OMG I could totally see FH being concerned about this with the Red Sox!! Like others have mentioned, this is probably going to be something you'll have to call or email specific places that you're interested in. A resort that has the majority of their guests travel from America, you might have a better chance of that. To be completely honest, I could see FH postponing our honeymoon just because the Red Sox *might* be in the playoffs... Luckily, we're honeymooning in November so there shouldn't be any problems there.

    We have watched online before with NBC Sports Washington streaming through our cable provider so that's a possibility! I just think huddling on the bed around a laptop is less romantic on what I hope is a luxurious honeymoon haha I'd prefer to watch on an actual TV monitor

    My FH and I are huge fantasy football fans and I'm ashamed to say we spent hours in the sports bar, rather than at the beach the sunday we were in mexico. lol

    Hahaha well luckily we are BOTH big fans so I'm just as interested to watch hockey as he is! I thought about "banning" hockey during the honeymoon and then I was like wait part of the way we love each other is enjoying competitive sports together so if we get a chance to do that as husband and wife on our honeymoon I'm so down lol

    Oh man. I didnt think about this at all. Ha. Hope we can get the playoffs on our Disney cruise ship next year if the St. Louis Blues do well.

    I too was going to suggest the NBC sports app on fire stick. Or if you have a Fox Sports regional app. (We have Fox Sports Midwest, so I'm not sure what the east coast version of that is.)
