If you’re unable to use the NHL app for iOS or Android to stream the game then you’ve probably tried the NHL.TV or Rogers Gamecenter websites. And you probably discovered they’re terrible. Especially from a Media Center PC running Windows. The websites do not support high DPI displays and stream at a measly 30fps. But if you’re running Kodi, there’s a great add-on called NHL TV available from the official Kodi repository.
NHL TV add-on for Kodi provides access to NHL.TV or Rogers Gamecenter content for anyone with a NHL.TV account in the United States or a Rogers Gamecenter subscription in Canada. Once you have the add-on installed you’ll be able to stream live NHL Games in HD at 60fps.
For more information on Kodi and a list of popular add-ons, see How to stream tv shows, movies, and sports with Kodi.
Installation instructions for NHL TV

The best way to avoid Blackouts is to use a VPN service. Recently I started using TunnelBear. I was able to try it for free and their monthly or year subscriptions are reasonably priced. TunnelBear was the first public VPN service to complete multiple third-party security audits. They confidently state they do not sell personal information, browsing data, or sell your bandwidth. They offer a free account with 500MB of included data a month and the option to Tweet their Twitter account for an additional 1GB of free data. It works by routing internet connections through another part of Canada or the United States. No connectivity or quality issues to report. It works on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Try TunnelBear free.
