Reviews From google play store

This app is ok if all you want to do is quickly check live scores on games. If you want to watch games get ready for a horrible user experience. The stream stops multiple times per game and even if you're watching, you'll get tons of notifications telling you not to "miss the action". What's even better is you'll get notifications to watch games you can't even watch because of cable blackouts.


It doesn't seem to stream the best. The free version I had Roger's when they had the promotional NHL app when you used them as a provider worked great, now with this one I'm paying for I find it doesn't work as good and streams terribly. Tried to see if an update was needed but it wasn't the case. Frustrating when your trying to watch a game and it keeps freezing up 100 times a game. I still haven't got an email or a response from the jagoffs from the NHL network.....not ordering it next yr


Absolutely useless for $200. Used to work with Chromecast fine up until a month ago, which just stopped mid live game I was watching. Now i constantly have an error: "An unexpected error has occurred!" Works fine with any other streaming apps including Netflix, Disney+ etc. Their IT support is useless as well a bunch of 16yo trying to explain how to rest the device. Basically they provide no support for this and have no idea what's going on.


Losing 2 stars as extended highlights are always the feed from the winning team (now the same as game recap)!! You have fans across the world who can't watch full games. Please sort out the score spoilers.... Got to say really like the new game center, loads way quicker and looks good on my tablet. Latest update today with game recap and condensed highlights on front screen in the scoreboard with no score spoilers with hide scores on. I've been waiting for this for years. THANK YOU NHL 👍


Seems like there's always something wrong with the app, but as a displaced fan the NHL gets my $130 a year. Most recent issue is with the ads that load when your feed goes to commercial break... since the NHL isn't collecting revenue from those ads on the native feed they pump in these other ads to make $. This causes an unexpected error to occur at the beginning of every commercial break; requiring a restart of the stream, or cast, only after commercials end and the game has resumed.


Up until recently I've loved the app. But now I just get a message that says "An unknown error has occurred. Please force close app and try again." every time I try to open it. I've restarted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still get the same message. The app is broken (this is a pixel 3)!


If this wasn't my only option to watch out of market games I would immediately unsubscribe. Literally the worst streaming app I've ever used. How many times do I need to restart my stream because the damn thing fails to load an ad and just hangs until I realise. NHL needs to wake up and put some money into their platform. This is my last year subbing, "illegal" streams here on out.


It worked last year on chromecast just fine. This year they changed something and it now stutters every 30 seconds when casting. No it's not my connection (netflix etc work perfect). Yes I've reset chromecast. This is an issue that's been ongoing this entire season - many others report the same problem on the chromecast forums with this NHL live app. 200 dollar service you expect it to work with casting. I can at least stream but don't expect to be able to use chromecast with the NHL live servic


Had this included with my internet package and then lost it. Figured I would sign up and go monthly. Worst mistake ever. Extensive lag on streaming. Cleared cache, etc. On screen displays "we encountered an unexpected error". Complete waste of time... My error was paying for this. One star is what this deserves. Will revisit ratings if this ever works... Update: Lag into the 3rd period of most 2019 games. CS is absolutely useless. Chromecast support stinks. Wish there was an alternative to this


Radio commercial volume can be really loud!!! Really annoying having to turn volume down and up. Game recap videos in app and Android TV is blurry at first. Only after rewinding (any amount of time) is enough to fix the buffer and the image is Crystal clear after. Unable to tell which goalie is expected to play that night. Overall a very good app.


Love the app most of the time. Lately the audio feed cuts out after only a minute or 2. It does this on both wifi and mobile data. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Being in Australia this is the only way to get a good hockey fix.


CHROMECAST IS UNWATCHABLE! I've been a premium subscriber for over 4 years and this will be my final year if they cant get the Chromecast problem fixed(Chromecast issues in past years, but not this bad). CONSTANT BUFFERING!! Switch back to watching on my Samsung A70 and it plays perfectly. All my other apps work perfectly with Chromecast.....Netflix, Global, Sportsnet, Crave. Unacceptable for a service that is over $200 a year! I've dealt with their tech team, with no results.


Great until recently... the standings section has completely changed and is nothing like what it used to be!!! My teams are in the west and are at the bottom of each section now rather than my favorites being the first to show... and the league standings is the last one to look at... definitely not an upgrade!!! Please give back the original standings section!!! Update 11-22-19 Thank you for bringing back the old standings sections!!! Thank you thank you thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!


I've never had a service degrade quite like this one. I bought NHL.tv, but watching live games is trash. It just keeps pausing every 10-15 secs. It didn't have as much of a problem last year and nearly no problems the year before. If you disconnect from Chromecast it will say you're logged in at two locations and you can't start any videos. If you call the tech help they will openly admit to only debugging streaming in the app and will not debug casting issues. It's pathetic.


Its a great app, when it works. I love catching up with my team and reading the latest news but recently it just stopped working, keeps giving me the "unknown error" (means im not connected to the internet so maybe you can make it a known error message) although I am connected to a stable wifi connection. Its bizzare and stupid. Please fix this, also, I used to have premium so I could watch every game. Well ALLOW ME TO WATCH PLAYOFF GAMES WITH PREMIUM. Thats the most annoying part.


When I exit the NHL for Android TV app--then open a different app, eg Sling--then go back to the NHL app, NHL will not re-start properly. I see the NHL shield and spinning busy icon, but even after several minutes, NHL will not re-start. Clearing NHL cache through my Sony Bravia Settings does not help. The only way I can re-start the NHL for Android TV app, is to uninstall and re-install it. Please fix that behavior or post a solution. I have a 2015 Sony Bravia HDTV with Android version 7. Thanks.


"Your team. Your app. Official NHL app .."? What the heck can it DO? Can I listen to/ watch all skates at one price? Do I have to pAy? Per view? Per season? Per team? If it does nothing more than could be accomplished through each team's website, why the help would n e 1 bother having a seperate app for that? SMH


Ever since the app was updated, the video stream stops and starts a lot when connected to Chromecast. It does the same when streaming through a web browser on my laptop, but it works just fine when viewing directly on my Pixel 2.


Trash! This app is so frustrating. Why is it that the ads load instantly without a single delay, but the actual content I want to see takes forever or just doesn't load at all. And you make me watch an ad after one video a lot of times. Money grabbing greedy @$$ holes!


Lately the audio feed keeps randomly stopping after just a few moments. It doesnt matter if I am on wifi or on mobile data with 5 bars. The audio just stops and it's quite annoying when trying to tune in. Sure you can click on it to reload the feed but to have to do it every few moments is annoying


Doesn't seem to matter which game, the app will not play it. Instead, it prompts me to subscribe to a half season, or monthly pass despite the fact that I'm logged in with an account that has an active annual pass.


Update: Can I give negative stars? Now, the app works to watch a game but crashes whe you change the game you're watching and required a reinstall to work again. So So horrible. I Have used this app for about 4 years. Current phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8. Twice in two days now the it has required me to reinstall it in the middle of watching games. It gives the error "An unexpected error has occured, please force close the app and try again". App was okay before this, now it's garbage.


Yeah so it does the basic functionality but not with any sort of grace or ease. Feels like a hobby project, instead of an official app. Runs like a poorly written js web app, instead of an official app. Please spend the few extra dollars to hire a competent app dev team NHL.


Streaming with a chromecast doesn't work at all and constantly buffers. Have to stream from my computer for it to work. New phone (pixel 4) same crappy buffer issue. Can you fix this... Jan 5th and these issues still haven't been fixed.


My criticism of this app is the same as most others on here. The Chromecast is constantly lagging, stuttering, and/or freezing. It's next to impossible to watch a game.


Almost impossible to watch a game as 90% of then are "blacked out". Not worth the money. Edit: A year later and nothing has changed. Since Cherry was fired, Sportsnets ratings have gone down and none of the games are shown anymore despite your yearly subscription because NHL is trying to convince you to just subscribe to cable channels.


Worked fine until a few days ago. Unknown error when I try to open it. Uninstalled, force stopped, cleared cache. Nothing works. Update: issue has been resolved. It took about a week or so. Update (2) won't open again.


Great app. It's so handy to watch the goal I want, however it's so so so annoying to have next video autoplayed. Why cannot it be switched off? It's the only reason, why I'm not giving you 5-star rating...


Great for use of entering the app, however, being on android I was hoping to have a widget for scores. Glitches out and doesn't show half the teams when setting up the widgets. Would be 5 stars if they could get that feature to work.


Most expensive streaming app I have and by far the worst. Constantly lags, have to put an out of conference team as my favourite so it doesn't show scores and if I select stream game from start it displays live game.


NHL can't get out-of-blackout location data to work properly. Too bad I can't give 0 stars. Chromecast doesn't work, $150 for NHLTV subscription that's total garbge. Save your money. Video doesn't rotate in latest update


Would be 5 stars if there was some type of notification that the opposing team scored. Its really nice it blows the horn when my team scores but never does anything for the opposing


I feel as this app is good for some people and bad for some people because you get a lot of notifications but if you like NHL GAMES A LOT ot will not bother you as much to hear what is going on in you favorite teams games I WOULD RECOMMEND ONLY favoriting your favorite team that you really like be cause you will get a lot of notifications I really like this app in many ways one is the fact that you always know what is going on BUT there should be a way to tell the app when to send nofie you


Latest update wrecked the standings view. It was fine before, but now you have to scroll right to see all the data. Serious fail here. Now have to use Yahoo Sports app to see standings in a single view. 11/29/19 - standings view has been restored. Thank you!


Consistently stops as if buffering on my Chromecast. Works fine on all other devices in my house like phones and my computer. Even works if I cast from PC but can't watch if casted from my phone with the constant stopping.


Worst live streaming service that I have ever used. Support can not provide explanations or solutions to lagging and other technical issues.


The streaming subscription is pretty much unwatchable if you plan on using Chromecast. Support admits it won't work but refuses to refund or apparently implement a fix.


NHL.tv is basically hot garbage on the web and this android app. It's good for about 5-10 minutes of action, then will hang until you restart the app.


Unable to log in, I keep getting "Something went wrong, please try again or come back later.."


Total waste of money! Canadian subscriber beware, as most of the games are going to be blacked out. Paid the full season package and now I'm stuck with it.


Don't buy the streaming package if you have a Chromecast. Buffers every 5 seconds on a wired connection. They claim to be fixing it but it's been like this for almost a year


Trying to watch the hockey game on my TV. Not working. Super disappointed in this app and the fact that I pay $200+ to not watch hockey


Havent been able to use the app since June. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared the cache, and even force stopped the app. I literally cant open the app to use it. Nothing I do will get it open.


Blackouts, same 3 commercials and the app doesn't always load properly. Use satellite or cable for a better product. And no all star game or skills comp for some dumb reason.


It was working but now I keep getting error message. I tried uninstall and reinstall and same problem. Currently trying to get my money back.


Love watching the hockey games but DEFINITELY DO NO LIKE THE LONG LONG LONG WAITING TIMES TO LOAD AND THE FACT THAT I HAVE TO UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL TO WATCH HOCKEY. PLEASE FIX IT OR WILL CANCEL 2019 SONY 900F TV IS THIS A SONY ISSUE OR ANDROID?


This app is excellent on Xbox, however fir android it is terrible. Streaming is useless as the buffering makes watching games almost impossible.


Radio audio stops all the time. I have to constantly stop and restart the audio. Doesn't open a audio player like MLB app does.


This app does not allow you to watch local games. If you purchase it and for any reason do not like it you will not be refunded, regardless of the reason.


Wish I could get Flames or Oilers games more often as I stream all my TV. For the most part an OK app.


Why can't you pick the leafs for the 1x1 team widget? Every other team is listed except Toronto. Weird bug. Would like fullscreen video playback for devices with screen notches.


Ad will load and play just fine, then the videos won't play.


Where's the game recap? Now you have to click each individual goal instead of a continuous feed?


Good when it works, but right now it won't open for me. I even uninstalled and reinstalled, same problem.


Worst app ever. Shuts down 90% of the time. Event the preds say it sucks. Sent 5 emails to help fix with no response.


I paid for a full season on Google play and I can't seem to ever log in and get it to work on my tablet. 😠


Scam! This app is absolutely atrocious. Barely worth downloading, DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON IT! 90%of the games are blacked out. The NHL is fleecing it's fan base with this app


It's great when it works. Probably 50% of the time the content fails to download and you just get a blank or generic screen.


Absolutely terrible. The ability to transfer tickets is now broken. Literally can't do a worse job of creating and maintaining an app. Everyone at this company should be fired.


I love hockey ...figure it out 🙈🙉🙊😆 Only disruption is me. And the linemen. Just kidding .I love it.


Feeds keep freezing after ads. The only thing that works consistently are the ads


What's up with this app, keeps saying unexplained error, force stop. It was a great app .


Piss poor app. Lastest update took away the standings, unable to see which team is leading the league now, I dont care about the all star vote. Cant use the back button on my phone with out closing the app.


Have to force stop the app constantly. Something triggers it to auto start.


Free radio if you can't afford to give your arm and leg to see your team play


60% of the time it works all the time. Seriously though, this app is garbage and the customer support is worst I've ever experienced.


NHL is awesome. So anything that updates scores and let's me know about hockey stats is awesome.


Its always loading and the picture quality cuts in and out.


Absolute garbage..... Ads after every goal... Get out of here!


My Rogers NHL live subscription will not let me log in to watch games on my phone not happy


Gamecenter scam aside this app spams you with irrelevant notifications like crazy that can only be turned off by disabling ALL notifications so I can't even get the few I wan


I just got this app and from the set up and audio its a great way to keep up with our VGK


Terrible app won't open keep getting unkown error, terrible, wont pay for NHL.TV again


Too many notifications. Doesn't play my team's goal horn as stated


I really only follow my team. I just want to look up their schedule, but I cant seem to find it. The page is cluttered with news that I really dont care about.


App used to work. Latest upgrade stalls with unknown error. This on a Galaxy Tablet


I spend money on this app to watch games not listen to them i only seen like 4 in a month this is un exceptable


Not worth the money. Awful coverage for the past two seasons.


Do not purchase if you want to watch your home team games. Half are blacked out


The app takes over 2 minutes to push the notification that a team scored


It's a good app to keep score. I bought the subscription to try watch hockey but I'm in a black out area and most of the time I can't even watch. I cancelled it, and the following month I still got charged! I can't get a refund either. Make sure you're in a good area to watch before you purchase. Sportsnet app is only 22.39 a month and I can watch more games in my rural area.


This app BLOWS!! if it isn't broken don't fix it! Stop changing things on here, just put down the hammer. I know that someone needs a job to do this, but good golly... Looking up standings, stats, anything really are super stream lined and easy now... (That was a joke). Just stop, leave it be. Sadly THIS is all you can really go to for hockey... Anything. Give it a year before you change format, or please just leave it alone for a season. I don't want to keep learning "what's new" BS.


This has to be the most annoying app I've ever used. It constantly crashes and I can't open it again. I'll try to force stop it, I'll restart my phone, but nothing works. I literally have reinstall it every time. Also, if and when it does work, the stream is garbage because it will freeze up or the quality gets blurry. There are a few moments where everything seems to work normal and I can watch some of a game but it's quickly ruined by all the issues I just mentioned. These developers are awful


Wouldn't it be nice if when I open the app after getting a notification for a cool play or a great goal it actually works?? I can only dream.... Another point, if you're going to blackout games to give money to the local markets, yet use their telecasts, why not use the entire telecasts doing thr exact same thing?! No blackouts and happier customers. $200 to watch everything but the home team you actually want to watch. Bravo NHL.


I have internet capable of downloading 10 megabytes a second to my phone. Somehow that's not enough for the 144p playback of game highlights on this app. Now, I've never had problems with any other apps, amazon prime video, netflix, youtube. That leads me to think that the devs don't care about this app whatsoever, and therefore the 1 star rating.


Why isn't there floating column names for the categories like shots, goals, TOI, etc. on the box score page? It's nice that the player names float, but it's infuriating that I have to keep scrolling up and down to know what numbers I'm looking at and makes me not bother with some of the stats. Seems like an easy, common sense fix. Please correct this and I will be forever grateful. I'm sure other fans would prefer this. Also, I preferred when the forwards and defensemen were grouped separately.


For a couple of days now, I open the app and am presented with the following error: "An unknown error has occured. Please force close app and try again". I've force closed, cleared cache, cleared data, uninstalled, and reinstalled the app, checking each time and I'm still presented with the same error. I would like to regain access but cannot seem to work out how to do so.


Suddenly stopped working on chromecast.


Paid for nhl.tv and I have to use this app to watch. The app just keeps saying unknown error force close and try again. I have uninstalled and redownloaded a few times already. Nothing seems to work and now the 100$ spent to watch my team is gone already. Thanks nhl how about you fix your awful app so people get what they pay for. Support is also useless and nobody seems to know what they are doing.


VERY unhappy with this app. I am new to hockey and my friends told me to buy the NHL app so I could watch the oilers games. I paid $200 for the full season just to find out I can't watch a good portion of the oilers games. I asked for a refund within an hour of purchasing this app because I didn't not know that blackouts applied to the app. If I would of known this I would not of purchased it. I was denied a refund. I can't even open the app as of right now. It just says to force close the app.


Great app for scores and everything nhl


Good luck trying to chromecast it as it will but not without constant glitches. I didn't have this issue last year and the only way to watch a game without any issues is on your phone or tablet. Had I known I never would have ordered it......Now the app will not work, at all. Total garbage and rip off!!!


Paid $150+ for nhl tv and cast to my tv using a chrome cast. Lots of start and stops through a game. Very annoying to watch. Last year streaming was better. Blackouts for in region games is garbage after paying to stream. Nhl please fix you service. I have fiber to the house with 500+ Mbps up and down. I have tested my internet and wifi connection speeds, both have no issues. Also, you know what doesn't stop and start? The commercials...


This app used to work quite well with Chromecast last year. But this year it's almost useless. Too much glitching and pausing throughout the stream. What changed in recent updates?? My Chromecast works flawlessly with Netflix so it has to be this app's utilization of Chromecast. Please fix this!! We must see sports on big screens!


Garbage. Can only watch on mobile phone if you buy through Google Play despite that it says otherwise. Rogers Tech Support is useless. Chromecast is so jittery it can't be watched despite with 120 Mbps streaming speed. The only option is to watch on my phone. Not the service I paid for. Buyer beware! Tech support passed me around for an hour just trying to come up with excuses to get me off the phone. I'm very displeased with this service this year. How many years until Rogers' contract expires with the NHL?


One of the worst apps. Super spotty and lags. Can cast on other apps but go figure, this one can't. They must also get anyone who can type to work support. Their fix is telling you to uninstall and reinstall app. Thanks genius. Not to mention their "fix" doesn't work. NHL tv was such a waste of money


So disappointed. For the past few weeks, my app keeps showing an error. Force stop, reinstallation doesn't help. I've been purchasing this service for two years after it was no longer offered for free with my Rogers plan. Please fix this as you will likely lose a customer next season.


App continually states my account is in use at another location and to change my password, upon doing so any attampt to watch a game is stopped with the same message again, uninstalling the app and reinstalling the app brings up the same error. the only way to clear this error is to not use the app or login to my account for 48 hours missing hockey games, save yourself the trouble and pass on the app and subscription.


Love the app, great work. I have noticed over the last two seasons you have introduced podcasts, and that also us awesome. I would like to suggest making the podcasts available in it's own menu, like stats, scores, teams, and all the others on the side drop down menu. It would make for much easier access for them, and as a great tool for news, I think its underutilized right now.


Does not work with Chromecast. Watched a two hour movie last night with Netflix on my 300mbps connection and it didn't skip once. My router tells me NHL never tries to download more than 2mbps. Rogers support told me that because it is "live" it's more difficult to stream than Netflix, ha ha ha! Then they told me because my phone works and not my Chromecast it's a Chromecast issue! Of course it is! Hundreds of negative reviews here prove that! Expensive subscription and it doesn't work!
