Like the MLB TV app for baseball fans, the NHL.TV app is a must-have for hockey fans especially as hockey has become less readily available nationally the last few years.
For a slightly more expensive fee of $159, users get access to every NHL game and can designate their favorite teams as well. There are blackout rules, so if you live local to your team and can’t watch them on your nearby stations, you have to wait 48 hours before you can watch. Another issue is that nationally televised games are blacked out, which also happens to include the Stanley Cup playoffs and Finals. So the subscription is great until playoff time, then you’re kind of on your own.
Not only can users access live games, but there is a seemingly endless amount of highlights, videos and even access to archived games if that’s your sort of thing. It is more than worth the price of admission even with the blackout issues and one of the best, most comprehensive sports apps available on the Apple TV.
