Scores tab is broken for me.  Qball_42  3 star

This app does very well for allowing me to listen to games, which I quite like. However, I can't get the scores tab to stop dwelling in 2015, which is two years ago! I would really like to be able to see up-to-date scores and look ahead on the schedule. Instead, I'm constantly stuck seeing whatever happened two years ago today.


Waste!  Gamble867  1 star

All old! Last year's info. I bought this app assuming it would be a great asset to have for the season. There has been no updates since 2016 season

P.L.S. Fixx

Please fix this app  P.L.S. Fixx  1 star

Does nothing but crash. Why is this not fixed????


Too many blackouts for the $. No playoffs  Lippydippyd  1 star

Don't count on watching any playoff games, even when you shell out for a subscription. Games are lagged, so avoid Twitter and chatting with friends, because every goal will be spoiled. Start treating your fans well.

Ruined notifications  NY Andrew  1 star

Used to get notifications for JUST the team I favorited and now I get none. I don’t want NHL notifications about everything in the league, JUST MY FAVORITED TEAM!!!!!!! And yes I checked settings.


Awful  NhHolmes  1 star

absolutely hate the fact when you buy the subscription you need to buy another one just to watch your team total bull. wish i could get my money back


Doesn’t work with iOS 11  samsonjnavarro  2 star

Please fix the bugs ASAP! I purchased NHL.TV but I can’t even open the app since updating to iOS 11.


Not worth it  Gloomis26  1 star

With the cost of this app, you think they'd remove the ads when you want to watch a goal replay. Some of the ads are even for the premium version which you've already paid for. Look up "target market." If you want to get this app to watch live games, don't bother as you won't see your home team or most other teams for that matter.


Glitchtastic!  Weevis🐶  2 star

So yes it is preseason but that is no excuse for the app to glitch and not allow me to listen to a game while it is going on. If the game is started, and the broadcast says 7:40 or whatever, it should have started. I'm still waiting for improvement


Crashing and burning on both devices  Pwilliewilson  2 star

I'm running iOS 10.3.3 on an iPad Pro and iPhone 7Plus. The app continuously crashes upon startup on BOTH devices. Same behavior on both devices. Fix this immediately. I pay good money to watch live games and as of now both my devices are useless with this application.

Control Center

Hockey 50 years later  Control Center  5 star

Being a Canadian and loving in Seattle Wa, there is very little news regarding NHL. So this past year I decided from the draft that I would get to know my team, the Toronto Maple, that I laid in bed and listen to Foster Hewitt, on the radio and Hockey Night In Canada, Leafs. That was the 50s, no TV. Then the price was wow...would I ever use the app for that price. I bit the bullet and watched 75% of the Leaf's games and what a year to get involved. Love this app...it is opened at least one a day....just like I'm a kid all over again.
