    No, I don't believe so.

    Semi-related: The first time I saw games on ESPN+ I did get blackout screens on the NHL.tv PS4 app.

    I was pretty pissed to be paying for NHL.tv and all of a sudden thinking ESPN+ games were blacked out, but reinstalling the app fixed that. Seems like at least once or twice a year I get really major issues, and they end up being due to needing to reinstall the updated app.

    Since then, no blackouts that I didn't expect (local games, NBC and I think NHL Network (but maybe not all the NHL Network games, not sure)).

    I have Directv and the same thing happens if you don't purchase the Sports Package that includes the Regional Sports Networks, so I suspect that's the same reason Dish would cut away, you want you to pay for those RSNs. When it's a Canadian team's home game, they cut away regardless because they don't offer those RSNs.

    Anybody check out the game flow feature on the NHL app they just added? It's streamable on Apple TV, but seems worthwhile on Android as well.

    Just was on support line with apple tv. NHL claims the latency is a known issue. My latency is about 1.4 seconds off, in front of the picture.

    What’s the chance NHL gets rid of cable blackouts on their next contract? No one has cable anymore

    Seems like there’s a lot of problems with the streaming services. Glad I still use cable/center ice.

    So after talking to DTV the best they can give me is that "some games aren't being played on DirecTV at this time"

    thanks

    I was pretty pissed off that the Oilers v Flames game wasn't on Directv last night. I was still able to see it by using the NHL app on my Apple TV but for the price that satellite and cable these days along with NHLtv/Center Ice/whatever they call it these days it's ridiculous that we don't get every single game.

    Watching Center Ice on Xfinity in the Boston area is a pain

    To get full HD for all games home and away and you have to speak into the remote and ask for 'Center Ice Beta' and then select teams and then the logos of all 31 teams appear.

    Xfinity also does not allow you to have access to NHL.tv like other cable companies do - I called the NHL switchboard in Manhattan and asked for Bill Daly's voicemail and within 3 hours someone in his office called me back and the problem was solved.

    I prefer Center Ice over NHL.tv simply because I enjoy seeing out of market commercials instead of a static slide that says in a commercial break.

    For some reason on the late HNIC game on Saturday we get local commercials from Moncton, NB and there are some PSAs from the New Brunswick government that are jarring.







    Anybody else seeing these spots?

    I was watching the Panthers game and the picture was blurry. It seemed to get better an hour ago though.

    I’ve found that changing your vpn doesn’t work on the iPad. The NHL app still recognizes my current location regardless. How are you working around that?

    Sometimes I wonder what the nhl.tv dudes are doing. Now I can't watch the games on an ultrawide screen without having parts of the picture cut and need to reload the stream about twice per period because it just stops working. (I'm watching on demand, not live)

    Not me . I love NHL tv . I watch a lot of hockey at work on my tablet during my breaks and downtime which I wouldn’t be able to do without NHL tv . For all it’s flaws it’s the best option for people who want to watch hockey in other places besides their home .
