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. (more…)
It seems each year more and more NHL games are facing blackouts for cord cutters. This mostly applies to “in-market” games using NHL.TV or Rogers NHL Gamecenter (depending if you live in the US or Canada). The NHL defines “in-market” games as those which are broadcast by a regional television provider in your area. “Out-of-market” games can be streamed with no problem.

Original article: NHL Game Center was recently overhauled to NHL.TV. The re-launch was accompanied by new apps for iOS and Android which allows subscribers (or those with a Rogers Share Everything plan) to stream games in full HD at 60fps. Although iOS and Android users have beautiful apps to stream live NHL games, one of the most popular platforms on earth was forgotten.. again.
Those of us who run Windows, especially anyone with Media Center PCs running Windows, understand the pain of watching NHL games through a web browser. It’s an awful experience which is limited to 30fps (frames per second).
