Thumbs Up 4/5
Very happy with NHL.TV since the last update. The picture quality is excellent, 60 frames per second in HD.
One small quibble, wish the score overlay would stay in place where I last left it when I leave a game, have to swipe it back up into place each time I switch games.
This app used to run smooth, i don’t know what has happened this season but it is marred by crashes and a user interface that does not interact well with the user. It doesn’t play videos sometimes until after being clicked many times. It crashes unexpectedly, and it just feels like it needs an upgrade.
iPhone app constantly lagging and freezing 2/5
I wish the fluidity of the app would be improved
Too many commercials 1/5
Make me watch an ad every time I try to do anything on the app. No thanks.
Blackouts for the exact team I want to watch 2/5
I’m on vacation in a remote area with no sports bars and wanted to watch my home team via the app but I’m not able to due to my team’s games being blacked out. What is the point of having the ability to watch games on the app if my favorite team is the only one blacked out?

Nothing about your “contact us” works. Filling out the form won’t “submit” and trying to email won’t process. Not very user friendly!
Blackouts are Horrible 2/5
I live in Utah, yea, yea I know, you feel bad for me, point is the closest game to me is an 8 hour drive. How is it any game is blacked out in my market? Especially games on the East coast, I paid for a season pass only to find a third of the games are blacked out. I’m not sure how anyone could give this 5⭐️. I guess if they bought a pass knowing their basement dwelling team would never be blacked out. I give it 2⭐️ because at least I can see some games. Just not the games that mean anything. Pretty sure a game between the Sabres and Stars won’t be blacked out because nobody cares. Very disappointed in the NHL not wanting to market their product to people outside of their own cities.
I guess it might be time for a new class action 😏
Black out ripe offs 1/5
Bought the 24.99 a month package to watch the bruins while I was away from home with no tv to find out its blacked out.
ad spamming paying subscriber 1/5
This app throws ads at me that wont dismiss. I get car ads asking me to enable location data. I can hear the game in background while I cant get out of a centurylink ad spam. I’m a paying subscriber and cant get ad free hockey? Can't believe I'm paying for this. Im feeling burned and wont return to this service after this year.
Constant glitches 2/5
I’ve been having constant glitches while using this app. Some so often that I stop using it and use ESPN to find the score. I HAVE TO USE ESPN FOR HOCKEY.

Nice videos and NHL premium is good. A ton more to get it to see
Terrible app simply doesn’t work. Try it... it doesn’t work.
App not working on my iPad 2/5
App works fine on my old iPhone but not on my new iPad, no matter what I try
Beware of Blackouts 1/5
I have not seen a single game due to national Blackouts. The app did provide me with great scoring and stats from all the games that I wanted to watch but where blacked out... which only increased my frustration with blacked out games. If I want stats, you can get them free from other places.
Swiping issue 2/5
It appears there is a swiping issue and it’s very annoying. When I check scores and swipe through each player who scored, it always swipes to the next day. Using iPhone 7.
Add some of the features on the other platforms 4/5
I wish you could skip to start of periods on the app. And on the PlayStation plugin I wish OT was a chapter you could skip to. Only other thing that bugs me is I paid $150 and I’m forced to watch so ads on the phone app.
Screen mirroring 1/5
By Jr operator
Took this away apparently this yr, the only way my eyes can watch the games on my home tv. Not everyone wants to watch a game on a iPhone.
This app is worthless 1/5
If I could give negative stars I would. It is next to impossible to manage my tickets. I have had to change my password 10 times.
Slow to load, consistently crashes, advertising often takes you to their site even if you don’t want to go, and the only way out is to quit the NHL app.
Even when the video controls work, they are cumbersome and interfere with other controls or takes you where you don’t want to go... including to advertising.
Since the start of preseason, I have yet to see one complete game... live or replay... without one or more crashes. It’s now November!
For one video replay, the message... Game Will Start Shortly... ran for one hour, twelve minutes (Kings at Ducks on 11/07/17).
Their customer support is... purge your system... but their updates usually prove that their app is what is buggy.
Yes, they do fix some things, but even when you’re paying for... No Advertising... they still hit you with it and the controls lock up until after the advertising is over.
Their in-app “rate me” instantly gives itself 4 stars, then vanishes before you can state how you really feel.
That shows their values, which is also seen in their replays of goals, which sometimes doesn’t show the goal in a manner that those new to ice hockey can see it, and on a few occasions, it doesn’t show the goal... it just focuses on who made the goal.
Not a negative, but an ouch, is the lack of explanations for some events, like minor penalties... the what he did... because it limits newcomers from learning about the game.
Videos won’t play and it doesn’t seem like there will be an update to fix about to delete stupid app

The constant Verified Ticket pop ups are too long and annoying.
Liked my team app better
All NHL radio broadcasts free 5/5
4/5 for choppy game feed 4/5
By five-hole goes west
Choppy feed when casting to a tv with other apps open on your phone. Otherwise happy with the app. Changes The was you consume hockey.
Adds adds and more adds. 1/5
Every time you try to watch one replay now you have to watch a commercial that is longer than the replay.
Too slow 1/5
This app takes way too long to load. Sometimes it won’t even load. Disappointing.
It’s nice to be able to watch the games, but the app is pretty unstable. More often than not if you try to move forward or backward in the timeline the app resets itself to the beginning.
Love it!! F......in awesome!!!!!!
This is cool 5/5
This is cool because I like hokey
By sofia tree
I love this app!!
Blackouts of games need to be eliminated 1/5
By Jimbabwe 07
I️ pay for the NHL Premium package and a upper tier DirectTV package and still cannot watch my local team.
I love being able to watch game recaps, goals, etc... waaaaay better than watching the news like the old days.
Got the hookups 5/5
By Captan angry
Best way to stay in touch with what you want and not bothered by what you don’t want
By J 1735293
Great app, works amazing also. LETS GO JACKETS!!!!
NHL over NFL 5/5
I’ve always been a hockey fan. I️ I have always enjoyed the NFL. Since the NFL is a bunch of over-paid clueless individuals with lack of respect for themselves, the teams they represent and the country that supports them. They are dead to me until (if ever) they get their act together.
Which makes me enjoy the NHL so much more. Go hockey!
Bring back the old app 1/5
By A. Clown
The individual team apps were faster and not so boringly homogenous. If I wanted everything to look the same, I’d be a baseball fan.
Love the app, just hate .... 4/5
The occasional crash at the wrong time
Chrome cast screen lacks useful features 1/5
While chromecasting, I cannot skip forward 30 seconds. This feature is enabled while viewing on the phone. Makes no sense and is very annoying.
I️ love it
Was 1000xs better before MLB took over. Mixing the team app and the league app is stupid, plain and simple.
Very easy to understand
The best 5/5
There is no other app worth using! Love the in app listening. Helps to not miss a game when commuting. Keeps me informed.
Good app 4/5
Left out one star out for all the blackouts
NHL all in one app! 3/5
NHL is still the best sports app around. I wish the MLB would catch on to some of this app’s finer points
Glad the team’s logos were brought back months in a version update earlier this year.
However, what in the heck happened to all of the expanded stats from when you turned the phone to landscape view. This needs to come back. And stat. ;) For both team standings tab and for player stats.
For real, my rating went down 2 stars with those now gone from my life.
Outside of that, the layout is straightforward. Keep the team and NHL news updates coming. I started following the NHL in 2007-2010 and am now a bonified hockey addict. The NHL app is my gateway and enabler.
I appreciate that.
But bring back the stats!!!

Great games and highlights 4/5
By Batchelor Fan
I really enjoy the app. The game quality is good. It's great to have access to NHL action everywhere!
The 2017-2018 season version is not as responsive to scrolling ahead or going back to where you may have left off viewing a game. It also sometimes just drops for no reason when I am viewing a game. Then you have to start at the beginning again, wastes time.
Favorite app 4/5
App is great in most ways. Only thing I don’t like is the way it decides to refresh a minute into reading news or checking scores and makes you start over
Dis is gud app
NHL app needs work 3/5
By kyle’s mac
Super buggy and needs some refining. Constantly crashing and restarting. App was way better when it was just team apps.
Great app! Go pens! 5/5
By Mom 234
Love this app. Game highlights are available quickly. Use the radio option a ton to listen to the Pens.
