    Can anyone tell me why I can't watch any games on my ps4 anymore? I used to watch them all on ps4, did not have a NHL TV subscription throughout the regular season, subscribed for the playoffs and it just says something like "No feeds available for this game", no matter what game I choose.

    No issues on Android or my notebook.

    Did NHLTV.com get bought out by YouTube?

    I saw a lot of YouTube commercials while watching NHLTV.com in March. Before that, NHLTV.com was advertising a ton while I watched the games using their service.

    Ya, I tried NHLTV a couple of times during the playoffs, but the games were blacked out. Thank god I got the games on my cable service. You need a really good internet connection for a good experience with NHLTV (and other streaming video services). Unfortunately, in my area the internet connection is not the best quality or the most reliable.

    I had a similar question. I noticed a lot of Youtube/NHL commercials in March, so is it possible that NHLTV.com was bought out by YouTube?

    I can still watch on mine, but the experience is horrible.

    It used to be great. You could side click forward/back 10 sec or use Siri “fast forward 2 minutes”. Ever since MLB took over the streams, no more Siri support. And earlier this year you can NO LONGER click forward/back. Instead, you’re forced to PAUSE and delicately slide through the timeline which, for a 3 hour event, is incredibly hard. Not only that, the thumbnail will often show a frame from the LIVE GAME spoiling the game (as it did last night for the Sharks game).

    Not to mention when you start a game from beginning, it flashes a frame from the live view as well.

    I’ve complained left and right but NHL.tv does nothing. My brother uses Roku and games get spoiled in different ways all the time.

    NHL doesn’t give a CRAP about their apps and it’s painfully obvious.

    If I could find streams on demand I’d cancel this until they get their act together.

    I just figured out that the new web browser player is really performing good.. But only as long as you're not using a 2nd monitor and playing a game with not very high performance required. Thats not fun ...

    Not really watchable, this was better before.

    NHL.tv is still amazing. For me it's watching 100% on demand. What I would love for the fantastic new web player is a time line that doesn't give away how long a game will last l. how it is now it is easy to see if a game went into overtime.

    Other than now during the playoffs it feels like the canadian streams are running consistently on a lower resolution. not sure a the exact numbers but it feels like fullhd for nbc and 720p for SN. anyone recognized that or am I imagining smth?

    Why does San Jose have so subpar broadcast quality? Terrible to watch their home games

    I apologize if this is written in this thread somewhere but I didn't want to read all 7 pages.

    I am trying to cut the cord. My only issue is the NHL Network. I have it with DirecTV and do NOT want to give it up. However, the only streaming source that I can find is Directv Now which has really crappy channel choices for me, or Sling TV's extra sports package. However I do not want Sling - not many channels for me.

    What I want is to use Playstation Vue without adding on another $50 for Sling JUST for NHL Network.

    My questions...

    Does NHL.tv have the NHL Network programming?
    What is the cheapest way to get NHL Network from streaming devices?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The NHL Network really stinks. Don't know why you want it

    It's not that bad, they have some programming that is hard to find elsewhere, for example the AHL Finals going on right now. Plus international hockey and some minor league games from time to time.

    NHL TV does not have it, but it should.
    NHL Network is hard to find unless you have Sling TV or Directvnow, and even that you have to be in their grandfathered package (Directvnow) since they dumped a bunch of channels and slimmed down their offerings and raised the price.

    Your best bet is Sling TV, relatively affordable. Shouldn't cost $50 for Sling, I think you can get it for $30 plus they have a promo going on now.

    There are other ways to get it but not consistently and can't discuss here.

    Is this "illegal" streaming rule going to be reviewed for this upcoming season?

    Michael Geist is a good resource for this in Canada anyways, he specializes in copyright laws and says streaming video does not actually involve downloading a copy of the work so it's not illegal. Idk how it is in the US.

    Interesting take. I'm in UK, I like the app but we even get blackouts here!

    Hoping they make it easier to skip a couple of minutes and intermissions on the app, it's too difficult to specify how far you want to advance by using the time line thing with your finger.

    The PS4 is by far the best method to watch NHL TV imo.

    Is there any alternative way to watch NHL Network besides from cable? Not with NHL.TV right? It's not on Fubo or anything else I don't think?

    Sling has it on some add on sports package I believe. I have a shady streaming service that has it and I pay $30/month.

    No chance for those of us overseas, eh? I've been an NHL.tv subscriber for years, it's pretty expensive, and I'm pissed there is no access to NHL Network for us whatsoever, not even to its goddamn talkshows. :mad:

    PS Vue is going to get it at some point. That’s when I will switch from YouTube tv.

    Try moving your Modem/Router a little farther away from your tv or device you're using to stream and see if that doesn't help at all. A router too close can be just as bad if not worse than too far away.

    I have watched my Wild and the NHL on NHL Gamecenter Live, now NHL TV, for the past four years.

    I always just used my 27" iMac and speakers, or phone. It's always been good enough. We have purposely lived without cable or a TV as to not become couch potatoes.

    But, we are getting a TV again.

    Are there smart TV's that come with a program that you can download the NHL app or whatever, to then be able to log into your account and watch hockey on say a 55" tv? Is this like Roku, or something? What are the different ones that support something like that? I am old now, I can see.

    I remember some years ago it seemed like nothing supported it.
