  • Crashes more than Chris Kreider does into Goalies Jun 10, 2019

    By SMVIURLLFAGE
    I use this app a lot to stream games because Xfinity is way too expensive and the games aren’t in HD... But if there was any other reliable options to watch I’d probably go with that. The NHL app works half of the time which is why I gave it three stars and no more. When the app works it’s awesome, 95% of the time the stream is clear and the other 5% is just because of our internet so I can’t blame them on that. I love how it’s set up where you can see standings, League news and news about your single team! BUT... And this is a big but, IT CRASHES HALF THE TIME, I’ll think to myself, “HMMM I wonder what the scores are tonight” and these are the three things that happen... It either just won’t load, the app will load and you’ll see the home screen for a second and then it’ll crash OR when I press to see the scores it crashes. I don’t mind having to google scores but isn’t the point of the app to make it easier on the users to have info and entertainment easily accessible? Also like 15% of the time when we try to stream it’ll say we’re streaming the game but it’ll just show the two team logos and the NHL shield in the middle and will do nothing... Again when the app works it’s great but I find it not working A LOT

    Original Review: This year they dropped support for ps3 and Xbox 360. Due to this I was given the opportunity to experience how terrible using the app to watch a replay is. No period start selection. Absolutely garbage scrubbing controls. The -10 sec button often reverts back to the beginning of the game. The one positive is the streaming feed has less jumps and quality drops than the console apps had during live games. Almost forgot the constant notifications telling you if you want to see the notification content to turn off “hide scores”. How about not sending score notifications instead when hide scores is set? Update: The casting video player is fantastic. 10 second buttons have been replaced with 30 second buttons that actually work. The slider is much smoother and loads the video perfectly and at the correct time that is showing when you lift your finger up. Would still love to see the addition of the period start selection and ceasing score notifications when scores are turned off but I’m very happy with the recent changes.

  • Decent App but Faulty May 11, 2019

    By Carterman19
    I love the layout of the app, the scores section and playoff section is clean and easy to follow. I also like the addition of the videos section under latest. My issue is with crashing. I will be reading an article and halfway through it will crash and/or send me back to the main loading page of the app, causing me to have to scroll through and find the article and pick back up where I left off. Very frustrating. I used to be able to easily cast games and recaps to my chrome cast. I could select watch live and it would give me the live broadcast. Now if I’m trying to watch a live game (I’m an NHL TV subscriber) it will start from the beginning and not let me pick up with the game live. Also, if I do stream to a device from my phone, it will crash when I’m done and I will have to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work again, which means I have to log in, select my settings and preferences again. All in all, it is a great app for articles (even if you have to keep going back to them), videos (as long as your not streaming them) and general use. Highly recommend using the app on any other device than mobile to utilize any video feature.

  • Great game & news updates but in-app use needs work Sep 27, 2019

    By Wiz7rd
    Love this for game and news updates on my favorite teams and players (much better than the ESPN app), however the clunkiness of some features while in-app leave me frustrated. I'm no tech expert but I think it's just a lack of a little "polish". Might sound nit-picky but main reason for me only giving three stars is the video player. If the app is going to notify me about all these awesome videos to watch, then I feel the video player should be capable of showing them. More often than not I'm sitting, starting at a black screen, waiting for an ad to play, then again staring at a black screen, waiting for the video. There's so many apps out there capable of playing videos quickly and easily, why can't the NHL app do the same? I know it's not an issue of my cellular service. Please fix the video player! 5 stars in it for you after it's fixed!

    I’d like to see the app reflect more of the options offered on the desktop website. For the news section I’d love for their to be a way to filter out based on senior writers, trade deadline tracker, scouting reports, etc. There is a lot of material offered through the website that app users really cannot see. The app also used to offer an option where you could filter videos by game recaps, goals, saves, etc. I’d love to be able to just select the type of video and just run through a bunch of them. The app runs super well with very few bugs but for users who use the app consistently there could be more for you to select and filter through. Other than that, it’s amazing and the layout, design and way it works is wonderful.

    I bought the complete package to be able to watch hockey games this year and it's barely watchable as soon as a cast it to my TV, but any other applications does it without any issues. I can't watch the Canadiens games. I am really feeling like i should ask for a refund. After a few weeks of using i have to ask that this is by far the worst apps i have ever paid for. If i could get 0 fot it i would.

    Major disappointment, Android app not working always searching location. My location is on. Not blacked out but still can't watch the games. I have a subscription!!! Also on the Roku device the NHL app remembers me but won't allow me to view the games unless I log out and then log in again. I have to do this every time I log in to the NHL app. This wasn't happening last season.

    Error message when trying to restore my nhl live purchase. Spent hours being transferred to multiple Rogers/NHL Live departments who couldn't help (including multiple hours waiting in the queue to speak to an agent) since the start of the season. In the end, Rogers and NHL Live keeps saying the other has to fix it and none can do anything about it. Be prepared to never get your money back if you have issues

    Horrible customer support. I cancelled my auto-renewed subscription before this season started and they still charged me $100. I filed a refund request a few days after and they took a week to acknowledge they had received my request. Two more weeks passed by before they said it would take 5-7 more days to process the request "if approved." Meanwhile my credit card bill is due and after all that time the charge is still there. Look at all the bad reviews below and no response...

  • Don’t buy into premium Aug 15, 2020

    By everythingiwantisalreadytaken
    The app itself is great, I would have given it 5 stars until I got suckered into trying premium to watch games. They give you a warning that you’re at the mercy of blackout restrictions. Okay, I won’t be able to watch EVERY game, that’s fine. I bought a subscription and immediately canceled (literally within minutes of the purchase) because the game I wanted to watch was blacked out, despite the notifications that if I got NHL premium I could be watching the game live. So I’m stuck with it for a month. All the games I’ve tried to watch so far, except for one, so that’s 1 out of 13 games that have been blacked out. What am I even paying for? And of course, every game gives me a notification every period to watch the action live on NHL premium. Every time it pops up it just angers me more. Especially when I know it’s a lie. Here’s an idea, don’t send out notifications that you could be watching the game live with premium if the game is backed out and you can’t actually be watching it live with premium.

    I've had this app 5 yrs in a row now. This is the most functional and bug free year yet IMO. They have also seemed to figure out that I'm in a state with no local team(ut). The vegas Knights and CO aves games were always blacked out for local telecast. I'm able to watch them both this year.

  • Game flow update is really insightful feature! Dec 6, 2019

    By Dr. Strontium
    I have had the NHL app for almost three years, and this is perhaps the best update to the app so far. I also have the ESPN app to follow the NBA, and it shows real time graphs of the game flow. I was hoping that the NHL app developers would add a similar feature. And my wish came true! Although this feature is still relatively new, it offers a lot of potential. In the future, I hope the NHL app developers continue to add similar statistical features to the app for us hockey nerds out there. For instance, there should be a feature that shows where on the ice each team scored their goals. Kudos to NHL app for this awesome update! 👍

  • Long time subscriber Feb 13, 2021

    By Joe In The Midwest
    I have been a subscriber for 5 years and I love it. I dont experience the issues some others report. The games cast easily from my phone to my smart tv with crystal clear clarity. I travel often for work and even over cellular, games are clean and clear. Sorry for the others experiencing trouble, but I’ve never had any. The subscription works great on my apple TV as well. The game flow charts are fun to watch during games. Works great on my apple watch too. I like being able to watch any game I want (except for my home town Blue Jackets) and as a hockey junkie, I typically watch an eastern time zone game and then a western time zone game most nights.

    I downloaded the app to purchase the games. & watch my ISLANDERS play because where I now live in CT. they are out of market. The clarity of games is absolutely amazing. I don’t mind watching on my iPad. I also have Roku so I can watch games on my HDTV as well, you forget your watching through an app because the stream is so clear. If you are looking for a way to watch your out of market team this is it.

  • PLEASE READ PLEASE May 19, 2019

    By lovesanjosesharks🦈
    Ok so I know you can change the app icon and I’ve done that and changed it to the sharks but it’s different than all the rest. I wish that you would change it to look like all the others where it would be the sharks logo and have a teal background rather that the white and the nhl on top. I don’t know why this bugs me but it does. Please fix this in the next update. Other than that I really enjoy this app. It gives me lots of stats and other thing other apps don’t. I like that when my team scores it plays their goal horn for a notification. It’s really cool. This is a really great app and nice to use for when I want to see the latest hockey news and stuff. GO SHARKS!!!!!!! -Sharks fan 🦈🦈🦈🦈

  • Video playback issues Nov 26, 2019

    By ttumetalhead
    In general, the app is great. BUT. It's almost impossible to watch a game when the resolution drops to the point of looking like a distant video through a windshield on a rainy day for several minutes at a time, the audio cuts in and out entirely, and sometimes just freezes indefinitely until the app is force closed. It would be great to see a 15 second skip button option since the 30 second skip passes over the whistle to faceoff game time pause most of the time. Last but not least, if trying to watch a game from behind, be aware that sometimes the skip feature forwards to live, so spoilers aren't out of the question.

  • App or NHL? Nov 20, 2019

    By Utundu
    Overall the app is pretty great, there are a few things I don’t like, but I don’t know if it’s more about the App or about NHL.. I don’t understand why it is I pay for NHL premium but still get stuck with blackout restrictions? As if the NHL doesn’t have the right to air it’s own games? The other thing I wish was different was the commercial breaks; they finally updated it after 6 years of it being the same, but why don’t they just show highlights or news stories from around the league during them? Seems like a great opportunity for fans to get updates, and not debate on if they should just go to bed between periods because intermission is so boring.

  • Bring back classics Oct 19, 2019

    By Pasta rocks
    I have had NHLTV for years, used to be Game Center, I love it, I have some issues fast forwarding on Roku4k and it has trouble reloading when I stop fast forwarding, works fine on fire-stick4k and appletv4k. I wished NHLTV kept the classic games that used to be on Game Center and I’m sure it’s easy to put them back on there as some of us like to rewatch old classic game from Adams division like Bruins vs Whalers first round playoffs. So bring that back and I will put 5 stars up. I watch at least 2 games per day and never miss a Bruins game. Not a great product if you live in your teams region, but if you are a transplant and miss your team it’s great.

  • Game recaps buried Oct 19, 2019

    By Michianer123
    As has typically been the case, versions other than the iPad version allow the user to access Game Recaps with one click after selecting game under “Scores.” Better yet, those versions allow the user to go to Videos and then watch a series of Game Recaps without taking any action after clicking the first desired Game Recap. For some bizarre reason, the iPad version has eliminated the Game Recaps under the Videos section and, instead, Game Recaps available only if the user selects a game and then scrolls all the way through the Gamecenter write up to see the Recap vid at the bottom (after seeing who has done what in the narrative and individual play vid captions). The Game Recaps have to be one of the most popular features. Why make them hard to get to?

  • Why has the standings tab gotten worse? Nov 7, 2019

    By WALL012
    Look, I love hockey so there is no way I don’t have this app. However, one of the changes in the most recent update seem to take the app back instead of forward; the standings tab. It used to be so clean and concise with all stats viewable when opened. Now I feel like I’m trying to open a webpage that was never formatted for phone settings. There is literally a refresh button in the corner instead of the super clean “pull down to refresh” option of the past. The whole tab seems outdated and not fitting with the rest of the app. Honestly, it’s kinda ugly.

  • DO NOT BUY PREMIUM Jan 27, 2021

    By Gbuko
    As others have said, premium is a joke. They are very deceiving with advertising what you get with premium. When I first downloaded the app I tried watching the game. I was prompted with a pop up that said in order to watch games LIVE I needed to upgrade to premium. I thought $20 a year was a good deal so I purchased. Then later when I tried watching the game, I watched two ads, then was prompted with another pop up saying I don’t have the right subscription and I needed NHL TV in order to watch which is $25 a month. Very deceiving and I’m not even sure why premium is a thing, other than to get people to spend $20. Spent hours trying to get a refund and NHL support just deferred me to Apple to get refunded. Rating 2 stars instead of 1 because the app itself works and looks great. The NHL folks really need to work on what they’re promoting because sneaky fine print ads are a good way to turn customers off.

  • Major Improvements Needed Apr 8, 2018

    By Bukrizzle
    There seems to be no clear way to edit account information. No clear way to delete an account. Trying to search for a league in the bracket challenge doesn’t work. You type in the league name that definitely exists and after clicking search it goes right back to the screen you were on. The “share” button does nothing when trying to share through email. You can’t invite anyone once you create the league, only when creating it. If you forgot someone’s email the oops! Looks like they have to navigate through like 150 pages of leagues if you didn’t make your league starting with the letter A or Z. Two members of my league for some reason have no name! Just blank slots. Can’t fix it because there’s no way to do so! Please look into these issues
