Customer Reviews

Trying hard to love it, just ok.

There's definitely improvements. The homepage is nice, the goal replays load faster in better quality, there's more stats and videos available, etc.

Unfortunately, the downgrades have made the app less enjoyable than the older version. My biggest complaint is that the app feels very zoomed in. I feel like I have a larger text option enabled. Another complaint would be that the goal replays start in the small, vertical box. On the old app videos started horizontally so all you had to do was turn your phone instead of having to unlock your phone orientation (which I assume most people have on). My 3rd complaint is the standings...they're pretty bad. Not only do they look worse than the older version but they're very zoomed in as well. It seems like they zoomed it out a bit with the latest update but it's still not enough in my opinion. There's no logos either, making the standings page very bland. I do like that they have more team stats and a sorting option though. Lastly this app has crash issues while streaming and takes longer to load pages seemingly.

Overall the app is basically brand new. The MLB app is solid in my opinion so I assume they will continue to work on this one and make it much better. 2 stars for now. Hopefully 5 stars will reachable by playoffs.

Better

I'm revising my old negative review because much has been done in the most recent major release to address my frustrations.

There still are a plethora of bugs in the app, the most frustrating being around streaming quality. I'm constantly jumping around in video quality while watching the stream. I switch from gorgeous 60fps 1080p to potato camera way too often despite having a very strong internet connection.

I do miss the old game recaps with just the game commentary. They were amazing, I'd much rather have that than the voiced over recaps. I also get periodic region issues being in Canada which is frustrating, but they are less frequent now.

Pricing now is much better, I like that I don't have to make an insane investment at the start of the season. There are a few pricing options to choose from depending on you level of engagement which seems fair. I was enraged last season when I bought the $160 package and could not watch a penguins game for almost 2 weeks due to black outs. The jury is still out on that, it's the national blackouts that enraged me but I seem to be getting nbc games so it may have been addressed.

So it's s good but buggy update. Radical pricing changes are welcome, but the free game recaps are not as good. Notifications seem better. It's a net win.

Needs a lot of changes.

As a newcomer to hockey, subscribing to NHL Gamecenter allowed me to jump in with both feet and I have loved it. The new website and especially version 7 of the app, not so much. The old interface was easy to navigate, the format of it made sense, and I never had any problems. Now I am getting double notifications, information that was easy to see before is now either crowded, missing, or hiding where I can't find it. Please bring back the ranking numbers and team symbols on the standings page. The app randomly crashes and the audio for radio broadcasts has been awful (much worse quality than ever before). More games are blacked out than ever before.

It was ridiculous to roll this out in the middle of the year. I would love to get the old app and website back. My hope is that NHL is listening to all the unhappy fans and will consider implementing some of the previous features we prefer. I look forward to being able to give a positive review after future updates.
