What's New in Version 5.0.3
We've updated the app to support location-based services, beginning with the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game. Make sure you've got the latest and greatest by updating your app.
Shamefully indecent app
I bought this app/gcl after concluding that it would be a great way to watch hockey without having to pay for cable (which had rarely watch). I was wrong. Any game on local markets, NHL network, NBC, or NBC Sports is blacked out. Being a Caps fan in north jersey means missing any game that is on national tv or when they play the rangers, islanders, or devils. Luckily that rarely happens /s. We won't be getting any of the playoffs either, since NBC sports that as well. Remember that we paid $140 for this steaming pile of mediocrity.
And once you've waited for the highlights to be generated from the game you couldn't watch - guess what!? you are forced to watch a 15 second ad - FOR EVERY SINGLE GAME HIGHLIGHT. If you live in the area I do, its the same ad, every... single ... time. Also, if you just want to look at the box score, they force an ad image on the screen that does not go away unless you hit the small 'x' in the corner.
Very disappointed, very frustrated, I don't understand why a sport so desperate for popularity would do this.
$140/yr buys you plenty of ad content
I have been using this app since it originated in the App Store and I was a happy paying customer. Being on the road a lot it was nice to have all the latest stats and video about my favorite sport and league at my fingertips. This season NHL Corp decided it would be a good idea to force its paying customers to watch ads prior to being able to watch video content - every time! What!? Did I mention I'm paying $140/yr for the privilege of accessing this content?
The best thing customers service could do for me was submit my "input" to the NHL for their review and to turn off automatic renewal. Yup. That's great customer appreciation right there. I hope many other customers like me say NO to your dishonorable business practice by canceling their subscription. Then you can show all the ads you want to no one.
Now this app is great for a lover of the NHL like myself. It has scores, game summary, even video highlights.
However, the highlight videos is the very aspect of the app that is driving me to the brink of insanity. Each day, I enjoy being able to sit down and watch the highlights from each game the night before. Before, I was able to do this without a problem and I was happy. But now, I can watch a maximum of three videos at a time before the highlight feature refuses to work. So, then I will either reboot the app, shut down my mobile device, I even REINSTALL THE APP just so that I can watch these highlights. It is so inconvenient and pisses me off. Fixing this would not be that difficult so I hooping this gets resolved, just think of the children NHL, the children
