Slow Load Times, Crashes, You name a problem this app def has it 1/5
Still have yet to fix load times and crashes. You guys never fix the app no matter how many updates you put out the glitches stay or get worse whether it’s UI glitches, ridiculously slow load times, stories not being updated in a timely manner, or even the app crashing. This app is almost non functional compared to other sports apps.
You should also enable the ability to choose the old nhl logo with the orange in it. As well as retro/heritage teams such as the nordiques, golden seals, etc
I started using the app this year and I was notified on news, goals, and the draft. I am very satisfied on the way this app works and want to watch the Blues win more!
Misconduct Penalty: Too Many Unwanted Notifications 2/5
I’ve had this app installed for a couple of years now and I like being kept in touch with my team’s activities. However, I do NOT like being notification-spammed by the League about teams I have no interest in following, and that I’ve turned off notifications about. Turning league news notifications did nothing to reduce the number of annoying “12 interesting things about Johnny Puckley” notifications. I’m just turning off notifications altogether until October just to keep the noise level down.
It tells me the scores to every game and it sends me notifications about my favorite teams I give this app an A+
Greatest app ever 5/5
I’ve been watching since I was born. The app is a good app, highly recommend to hockey lovers, and it a good app. I am a predators fan watch them and hear the score from you guys, Thanks.
Faulty App 3/5
This app crashes repeatedly! When reading an article, the app either reverts back to the main page or shuts down altogether. I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app repeatedly and it doesn’t make any difference. Reading a 5 minute article takes more like 20 minutes because of all the times you have to navigate your way back to it and you hope to finish reading before it crashes again! This has been going on for months now. Can someone please fix this? Thank you.
Not happy 1/5
This app has not served me well. Is there ANY way to cancel?
Junk notifications galore! 1/5
By J G
This app is really great at updating you on EVERYTHING NHL. Ridiculously great. But unless you want to spend your time reviewing what happened on this day in NHL history everyday for the rest of your life, I suggest avoiding. There seem to be “options” for notification types that appear geared to filtering out everything but game related info (game start, scores, and finals). But it is a joke. It’s almost worse seeing the box checked to not receive news and getting slammed with 10+ per day. I deal with it for the news as an out of network hockey fan, but my gosh this app is horrible!
I love hockey 5/5
This app is good for anyone who watches hockey
Always been a really bad app 2/5
With all the money the nhl makes you would think their app would work decent
Turn off location 2/5
By Vine user
App has some foods points to it but limiting your view based on verified location is kinda dumb, especially since some people don’t work at home or are fans of teams besides their local one.
Great App — Would Love NHL Network Stream 4/5
Great app! Would love to see NHL Network available to stream in app just like the MLB app lets you do with MLB network. If the streams are added it would be 5 stars
App crashed 4/5
The app crashed three times during bruins goal in third period of game six Stanley cup finals! Won’t relaunch. Having said that has been great all season previously
Crashes more than Chris Kreider does into Goalies 3/5
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
Never Loads 1/5
For the past year I’ve tried this app several times and reinstalled it several times and it always says to “retry” so yeah
Constant Crashes!!! 1/5
*** DEVELOPERS NEED TO UPDATE AND FIX THE CRASHING ISSUE ASAP!!! ***
The most frustrating thing about any app is when and if it crashes. This app WAS 4-5 star worthy and stable until sometime early to midpoint of the 2018-2019 season. Now it crashes or refreshes itself constantly and at random. You could be reading an article or in the middle of a video clip and all the sudden no more article or video. Instead you’re either seeing the phone’s home screen or if the app only refreshes, its kicked you back to the NHL/team start page. For example, just today I was using the app to watch 2 videos and read 1 article. I had to go back into each video at least 2-3 times and about 4 times to get through the article. *** FIX THE CRASHES!!! ***
This app lies 1/5
By blues fan 01
The app tells you that you could watch NHL games, but when you put in your location they say it is blacked out in your area. You give them your money to watch NHL hockey and you cannot watch the games
WHY WILL YOU NOT LET ME SET MY APP TO THE CANADIANS 1/5
PLEASE LET ME SET THE CANADIANS TO MY HOME CREEN
Performance quality has tanked during the finals 1/5
While listening to the finals, my experience has been that the app stalls, closes itself, has the wrong linkage on the radio stations, shuts the radio feeds off at the final buzzer, and repeatedly reboots. I enjoy listening to my local radio station call the games and have been relying on this app for that. After the final buzzer of game 2 overtime, the feed just stopped for every thing but the French feed which was actually not French. Please repair and update. Thank you.
Great Overall 3/5
The largest thing that bothers me about this app is that I can't listen to a games radio station without being in the app. They need to add background audioplay back into the app. Other than that it does everything you could ask it to
Video issue 2/5
They’re video on this app is so buggy. I end up going to YouTube nhl channel for better streaming
Still not working 1/5
By Yugioh Is better
Needs a fix to the issue of staying on game 1 of sjs and blues please fix
By z zman
It’s awesome 👏 the blues are in the Stanley cup and I need to know what happens thx to this app
Blackouts and commercials 1/5
Blackout games are really annoying especially now when the playoffs were happening and now with the Stanley Cup games. I feel like anybody should watch it if you pay for premium. Way to many commercials for an app you have to pay for.
App is garbage due to blackouts. 1/5
As the title states. Can’t watch any local games due to black outs and playoffs are blacked out as well. Thanks for taking my 150 bucks with no refunds in the small print.
PLEASE READ PLEASE 4/5
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 🦈🦈🦈🦈
Buffalo sabers 1/5
Where’s the buffalo sabers Icon for the customization?!

This make me happyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!
Frustrating and worthless 2/5
By Cheez 51769
2 minutes of viewing per period with no blackouts... Really? I need that? So the redeeming quality is the radio broadcast... Or it would be if the app wouldn’t crash and/or lose audio frequently during the game! I’m on WiFi, so I know it’s not a signal loss. Dumped it and I’ll just listen to the stream from my local station. Buh-bye!
What’s the point??!? 2/5
Why pay $25 a month the be able to watch games and then not be able to watch games??!!?! I don’t live in an area where they broadcast hockey games and I don’t have cable, so what’s the point!!!???
Decent App but Faulty 3/5
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.
The app takes a significant amount of time to load. The archived games often stop with several minutes left to go in the games. The video comes and goes, even when the app is the only thing running on WiFi. For the amount of money subscribers are paying, there should be no blackouts when the games are televised on NBC or NBC Sports Network. There are people who have cut the cord to cable. They are still getting the audience when streaming, and it should be easily tracked.
NHL TV is a scam 1/5
Most games are blacked out. I was able to watch a few games the entire season. Don't waste your money.
Glitchy. Slow. Video does weird things. 2/5
The “playoffs” section has now disappeared. The old playoff schedule didn’t say what day the game was, whether today or tomorrow, just listed a time. Videos often don’t play until the app is restarted. Sometimes they play upside down. It’ll sometimes open to a blank screen. Time adjustment is slow. I showed up an hour late to a knights game because the time didn’t update. All in all it has great potential but is mostly a poor app.
DO NOT BUY! BLACKOUT GAMES! 1/5
By original mad dog
Buyer beware! bought this to watch playoff hockey, come to find out after I purchased you cannot watch most live games. You need to wait 24 hours because of NHL blackout dates. Such a scam! All set! NHL needs to warn people upfront.. buyer beware!
Best app ever 5/5
By Jessica Perrone
So this year I said for the playoffs as of right now round 1 do deleted it but after u got it back
Mostly good except the playoff section. 3/5
Overall, I like the app. My main complaint is if you are trying to find out when the next game of a playoff series is, don’t look for it in the “Playoff” section if it’s not today. It’s either not there or it is so buried I can’t find it. I have to swipe through the “Scores” to find what day the next game is. You would think they would put this info in the Playoff section.
Basic hockey app thats pretty garbage. ESPN is probably more useful 2/5
By Drop beats
The apps audio broadcast are terrible. Make sure your car or home radio is turn all the way down unless you want to blown speakers. The compression is ridiculous the audio is so loud and the digital distortion is crazy. IHeartRadio is best to use. The only reason I keep this is for the standings and they still manage to get that wrong. This NHL app doesn’t even know what round it is in the playoffs.
No love for the Maple Leafs! 1/5
Could we PLEASE get the Maple Leafs as an option to change the home icon image? How is the most popular team in the NHL not an option????? Otherwise a decent app. I’ll update my rating once the Leafs are among the teams that can be added as a home icon choice.
Sold under false pretenses 1/5
I was charged $24.99 plus tax for a one month subscription on May 2nd when the provider knew full well that the content being sold to me was BLACKED OUT.
Extremely disappointed 2/5
By rotes reviews
During playoff hockey, the app makes simple glitching mistakes as in saying a team leads the series 2-1 when game 5 is about to start. I’m not too good with math but that doesn’t sound possible. There is no excuse for getting scores, records wrong and not updating them especially in the playoffs. These days there are apps that take care of every little detail your life entails this is actually one of the simplest things I have ever come to see. Get the scores right, get the records right, because I’m losing my patience.
Before the last update the app worked significantly better. Now the radio feature requires the app to be open and playing video clips often just gives me a black screen. Not well done NHL, not well done.
Great app 5/5
I love how game recaps come out so quickly and how score time is very accurate
It gives good info on stats and I like how it shows the latest news
Overall a great app keep up the good work
More variety 4/5
By Is this a name?
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.
Best sports league app 5/5
Of the major sports leagues, the NHL app is far and away the best. Good interactive functions - love the ability to listen and watch games. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Force closes 2/5
Ever 20 minutes or so the app closes out. I have to restart it and try to find where I was
Developed to drive NHL.TV subscriptions 2/5
Frustratingly slow at in-game updating. Pull-down does nothing. Switching to another game, or another app does nothing. Killing and restarting works less the 1/2 the time.
Performance is not significantly different from tracking in the ESPN app.
Compared to MLB-at-Bat this is sorry.
