Clunky glitchy app 2/5
By Zac and Joy
When you go to schedule to look at older games it force shuts down. Why can't the app just WORK!?
notifications STILL DON'T WORK!!! 1/5
Deleted then reinstalled multiple times, still no notifications when favorite team scores a goal. Fix the app already!
Incredibly Slow 1/5
Title says it all. Extremely slow, buttons disappear from the bottom semi-regularly. Content is good, but in severe need of an update.
Decent app 4/5
Not bad. One request - go back to having multiple options for looking at standings. Right now it's only wild card - being able to do overall league standings or by conference would be great.
Crashes constantly 2/5
Garbage app 1/5
This app never works. I work second shift so mostly I have to listen to games thru the radio on this app, which never works...ever. It constantly cuts out and won't play more then 1 minute of audio at a time.
Zero bugs 5/5
Excellent content. No bugs or crashes after 5 years and 3 phones.
When I had my game settings set up through my specific teams, I received all my real time updates. Now that I have to go through the NHL app, I no longer get real time game highlights sent to my phone or IPad
By Biff Elway
Ever since the last update, the app crashes every time I try to watch a video highlight. Please fix.
No updates 1/5
By Rating App
Just tried the app this am, no score updates,not a one, what a horrible app, you get what you pay for. I suggest TSN.ca for NHL scores.
Worse every year 1/5
They add more issues than features, year after year. My phone was charging so I pulled out the iPad to try to watch the end of a a game only to experience CONSTANT crashes. Should have expected the result mixing a junky app with garbage iOS.
Won't play live video 1/5
By BlueNote Doc
Not sure what's happened but the app won't play live games over wifi or cellular. Interestingly I can cast it to the chrome cast but NHL in their infinite wisdom has not thought to place an option to choose the feed while casting. Just rookie mistakes...
Latest update crashes 1/5
By Areal user 1234
Latest IPAD Mini update crashes. Had the app for 3 years and no problems. I love how all the "users" who say the app is great all wrote their reviews on December 14th and 15th. Nice try NHL app employees. Anyone who actually paid for the app won't think it's great. FIX THE ISSUES!!!!
Very unstable app 1/5
By NHL frustration
Very unstable app. Crashes repeatedly.
Gets worse every year 1/5
It's always been flimsy with streaming games..that are way overpriced I may add. Games have trouble loading on game console streaming and kicks me out frequently on phone. I also have to log in almost every time on the mobile app, and I delete and re download the app daily because scores don't show. I don't understand how it gets worse every year.
Has been really slow 1/5
By Tyler... :)
This app has been ridiculously slow and unresponsive lately. Takes forever to load initially, and once it finally loads it takes about 10 seconds before my finger registers. Does this when switching between tabs in the app as well.
Great App, VERY disappointed about blackouts 3/5
This app has everything a true fan needs/wants. I pay for the subscription but nearly 50% of the games cannot be viewed due to blackouts. This will likely result in me cancelling the subscription and just getting the NHL network, which is unfortunate because I love the app - hate the Russian roulette though when it comes to blackouts.
notifications don't work. 3/5
I prefer my old app from my team that notified me when games started, end of the period, goals made. I have everything turned on with the NHL app and I get no notifications any longer. :(
All the games I want are blacked out! What is the sense in paying for this app? I can't even watch what I want.
Apple TV app terrible 1/5
The app for the Apple TV is terrible. When I first launch it, I am unable to change to another date. I click on the right arrow to advance days and nothing happens. I go into the calendar mode and there isn't an option to select a date. I then hit the menu button on the remote and nothing happens. Eventually the app becomes responsive but it is impossible to start watching a game when the app is launched.
There also continues to be occasional crashes dumping me back to the home screen.
Greatly Improved by the MLB TV 4/5
They hired the people at MLB's TV operation, after years of futile ... anyway, the main problem, now that they fixed the 60fps lag problem, is the apps keep getting amnesia and I have to log in over & over. Same problem on other platforms like Roku. But the games look great, especially on a tablet like iPad, it's easy to access the French language feeds even for Boston or Detroit games covered by RDS or TSN. They have finally fixed it, by finally dumping Neulion & hiring MSB.
Play from beginning? 3/5
On my iPad or iPhone I can't watch a game from the beginning while it's in progress. Why is that? I can do it from the app on the PlayStation. Super annoying please fix.
Never shows scores 1/5
This app is so fickle. One day it works great, the next I can't even get scores from past games. Extremely frustrating; I usually end up just going online to figure out what I need to know.
It's needs a quick fix 3/5
Everything on the app is pretty neat and easy to use. However, when going through the archived games to watch highlights or look up information, the application will shutdown. Once this gets fixed, 5 stars.
Worst app of all time 1/5
BLACKOUTS aplenty!!! 3/5
The app works great, unfortunately not for what I want it for. I work nights sometimes and would love to catch the NYR games on my Computer, however all the local/NBC Sports games are blacked out. Kind of defeats the purpose of getting it. I do like watching some of the out of market games but almost all the east coast game get blacked out.
More expensive and less content 1/5
By Fincon is a bad company
Typical NHL. I have had this app for 3 years and every year it gets more expensive and the content gets worse. It is just not worth a dam.
By Wings fan 15
Why on earth does the app consistently hide my scores? Hide scores should not be an option. App works well more than half the time. But could use improvement.
Beware of blackouts! 1/5
First off the app works great just as long as it's not blacked out. They need to do a better job managing expectations. Clicking on a game is like Russian roulette whether or not it's actually televised. I've been using the app for about 3 months now to follow my beloved NY Rangers after recently moving to LA from NYC. Today was the final straw when I went to watch the game against CBJ and came up blacked out. HOW? The 2 best teams right now and blacked out? It even happened to the Kings game today as well. Big deal if I can watch the game 48hrs later. I would say 1/3 of the games have been blacked out which is extremely frustrating. They should be honest ahead and indicate what games will be blacked out ahead of time not at game time
Lame app 1/5
Great if you're not a fan
Needs updating 1/5
By Crippled Zombie
You can no longer add the games to your iCal. This app needs to be fixed.
Amazing! But... 5/5
By 🇷🇺 Русская🇷🇺
Please fix the app!
Don't Blackout games on NHL Network 5/5
Just don't blackout games that are on NHL Network. I'm not provided with NHL Network by my provider
Slower than slow 2/5
Great content but they screwed up something in a recent update. The ap went from okay speed to terribly slow. Takes forever to load when for example you switch from scores to standings.
Buffered Chromecast 2/5
iPad app buffers with Chromecast throughout game, pausing action. Spoke with NHL & Chromecast, neither could fix. Not wifi problem either, great speeds & all other screams & apps are fine.
Usually great 1/5
This app has always been great, but lately the scores to each game have not been showing up. It will say "Final" and next to it where the score usually is is just blank. I don't know if it's my phone, but the app is acting weird.
By Chuck AZ
Added 01/03/2017 please fix this app! So slow accessing team specific sites. At times the app bombs and I have to re-enter. Discouraging.
Added 10/14/2016 keep messing with it until it breaks. Team specific sites now send you to the NFL site. A real downgrade.
I just tried to watch the Kings Rangers game (3/17/16). The game is shown on NHL TV, so I was told it is blacked out on this app. So I have to subscribe to both to get all games. I Called NHL and this the explanation I received. Blacking out their own app? Just cancelled.
Very unstable 2/5
By Jake baumshow
I hardly use it anymore. I used to use it at least once a day. Now it seems to give me issues 1/2 of the time. Very disappointed.
This app is garbage 1/5
If I could swear in this review, I would. The app is garbage. Next time I want to burn through $130 dollars, I'll light it on fire. At least it'll keep me warm. Save yourself the agony...
Lags, then crashes 1/5
This app is garbage since the latest update. I get 2-3 minutes of laggy usage and then it crashes. My NHL TV subscription is apparently good for nothing.
Crashes all the time 1/5
This new app is terrible. I am a paying game center customer and when I try to stream my teams games, video plays for about 1 minute and the app crashes. Nothing I have tried changes this, not clearing the app, logging in and out of wifi, or turning off and on ipad.
New glitch 4/5
Cant turn off the cc closed captioning. Please fix.
Sad but true 3/5
Don't ever pick a favorite team, I can watch any team in the league play at any time anywhere except for the one designated as my favorite, it always glitches, freezes or sends me back to the start of the 3rd period. I'm so happy to watch 50+ minutes of hockey only to have the ending unavailable. I would complain to customer service but it's pretty nonexistent from my experience.
Forced to use NHL 2/5
I originally had the app for the team I liked. I was then forced to only use the NHL. The biggest complaint I have is I could careless about all the other teams. I hate getting updates on all of the other teams. I just want to know about my favorite team. No others.
Slowest app ever 1/5
By Buck Rogers, NY
This is the slowest app I have ever experienced. It takes 30 seconds to load every time I open it. Even when running the app in the background and checking back for score updates it takes 30 seconds to load. The app developers really have to do something to fix this issue. It didn't use to be this bad with the previous version of the NHL app. Too frustrating and time consuming!
Website only stays open for 30 seconds then drops off
Not working 3/5
Always loved this app and it's never given me trouble. Now, however, it won't show scores and won't send goal notifications. Any help?
NHL tv 1/5
Was super excited to pay only 25 dollars a month to watch live out of market games......except you blacked almost all of them out. So anyone who reads this and is considering paying for NHL tv monthly, don't it's not worth the hassle. It's a joke!
Slow and I mean really SLOW 3/5
I don't really have any issues with this app but one, which is a major one. The app is extremely slow. It takes 20-30 seconds for it load the scores when starting the app or coming back to the app. Checking the scores is not fun anymore.
Newest is very slow 1/5
Just updated on my iPad which is running iOS 10. It is slow and unresponsive in many instances. In most cases when you hit a button nothing happens, then the screen changes. A better experience would be to have spinners indicating the app is working. Also saw timeout error messages that reference MLBTV. Very poor experience overall.
