Hockey fans - NHL GameCenter now available for Blackberry 10

NHL

What I know about Hockey I could write on the back of a postage stamp! But I do know a great app when I see one and NHL GameCenter falls right into that category. For some strange reason it seems that the new BlackBerry 10 application is not available for users in America. I'm slightly baffled why as I thought hockey was pretty big over there. Anyway, that may just be a small glitch.

The application offers a large range of features - not just checking scores, but you can also watch matches, listen to games, catch up on video clips and even jump into the NHL shop to purchase your favourite teams shirts etc.

Want to know which games are happening on any given day? Just hit up the calendar tab and you can see every single NHL game that is scheduled. This is just a heads-up on the app but we will have an in-depth review coming up in the next few days or so, complete with video. This one's a real gem.

GOlf LEAFS GOlf
/Fixed that for you.

Neely2005

Sounds about right. Aren't they the only NHL Team to not make the playoffs since 2 lock outs ago?

blakobecwa

LOL yea, knew i was taking a risk writing that ahaha

Kriilin Namek

It can't be easy being a Leafs fan, but I can't help but to pile on. "It must be spring, the Leafs are out!" Go Jets!

jayemmbee

hey currently we are in playoff position, i use the word currently loosely though -_- but a lockout shortened season might give us less time to choke and fall out of playoff position

GO JETS GO!
Leafs Suck!

mandony

This is a case of US revenue sharing issue that they must resolve
The current option is to use a web access (like the Playbook or BB phone using web) for live games, currently @ 49.99 UDS/ for the season

Neely2005

I don't think that's correct.

AndrLo

I was surprised when I fired up the app and it wasn't an android port. I use GameCenter to watch all my Ottawa Senators games since I live on Canada's west coast. Can't wait to try out the streaming the game tonight!

bergeronjc

Hockey is only big in the northern states. If you go south of Indiana or Ohio you'll find pretty much no one cares about hockey.

nt300

No problem, bring all those southern teams to Canada, we'll take them all.

pmccartney

See now, that would just make too much damn sense.

Snipperdo17

That's weird. Tampa bay sells their games out. Pretty sure they are south of ohio

wolf_clan

They sell out because of all the snow birds from Canada! :)

nt300

Oh my gosh, finally now I can track the LEAFS game.
GO LEAFS GO.

Snipperdo17

Yes I can use this with my z10 for AT&T. Oh wait..

The NHL Gamecenter rep I spoke to on the phone seemed to think the issued of American access would be resolved in a few weeks upon the release of the device in the US. BUT that was just a first tier tech and certainly not the definative word!

ubermanx

"Payment Error - Content not found" when I try to upgrade within the app to either NHL Gamecenter Live or Premium.

I am on Rogers in Canada.

screamndigit

in the US the gamecenter app is co-branded by verizon... so... i'm guessing the need verizon to be shipping a BB10 device first.

Neely2005

Great news! Can't wait for the PlayBook to get BlackBerry 10 so I can watch on my Bruins on my PlayBook too!

rav813

Is this only available in Canada? Says not available for my device... (Z10 in the US)

Neely2005

Read the entire article ;)

rav813

haha true #fail on my part. I saw the title, skipped to the link and was like DOWNLOAD!!!!! MUST HAVE!!!! #fail again.

GeneralHerzog

James,

Let's increase that postage stamp knowledge a bit for you.

It's called a Jersey, not a shirt.

The Boston Bruins are gods and the Chicago Blackhawks (NEED TO GET THEIR COLLECTIVE ARSES KICKED)
And Hockey fans all over do not understand why there's a team in the desert. (Phoenix Coyotes)

Kriilin Namek

Yup, hockey in the desert, that just ain't right...

workerb

Being a Detroit Red Wings fan I would agree with the Blackhawks statement.

Also, Detroit has been self-designated as Hockeytown being that the Red Wings are one of the most winningest teams in hockey. They won the most Stanley Cups of any team and have been in the playoffs more times than not. They are also one of the original 6 teams of the NHL.

mjgallaway

thanks for proving you are in fact not a true wings or hockey fan. The Wings haven't won the most cups of any team. That'd be Montreal and Toronto may even be 2nd. But EVERY BIG hockey fan knows the Habs have the most cups won.

workerb

Being born and raised in Michigan and spending half my life in Detroit I am a Wings fan but more of a casual one. Should have qualified the most cups statement by including the phrase "by a team based in the United States."

capitalsfan26

They are called sweaters, not a jersey. Bruins gods, what fantasy land are you living in?

Paunngaq

I feel I must second what you state. It IS a SWEATER and not a jersey as in Basketball. These days too many people and even hockey players are refering to sweaters as jerseys now and they are simply mistaken. Keep the tradition strong and call them what they are. Sweaters.
There's my little rant for today :) and by the way. GO LEAFS GO!!!!!

Cheers,

kwanzee

Not sure if there is a glitch in the app but I have a GameCenter Live account and when I login, it says 'Sign in Success. You do not have a valid subscription.". I've contacted their tech support to see what the deal is here but I would love to stream games on the Z10. I'm on Rogers.

randall2580

This is a big fill in once we can have it here in the States!

And might I add, "LETS GO RANGERS"

stickyiki

Aside from the annoying NHL Blackout restrictions, it works great for me. Streaming quality is excellent.

rally5464

That is the only reason why I have not purchased this app. My team is a hop, skip, jump away and all games are blackout. If you pay for the app you should be able to watch your team play streaming.

FirstBerry101

Very much enjoy this APP, I had written the NHL several times requesting an APP they didn't answer me a single time. I was surprised to find it yesterday.

FirstBerry101

Forgot to say #GoCanucksGo

fpanther88

Great app! Glad to see it on the Z10. Tried it last night and game video quality is fantastic.

wx_junkie

Ok, in an effort to even out the delusional cheering squad (*wink*)....

GO HABS GO!

NoAhB0Dy

Crud...makes me wish I had purchased Game Center instead of NHL Center Ice :(

tazish

Well I have Gamecenter but no Z10 as of yet. Come on Verizon make them available already. Lets Go Devils!!!!

9of13

Verizon to my knowledge is usually the only US carrier to fully support this. good thing ill be switching to them from Sprint soon.
and might i also add....

LETS GO RANGERS!!!!

RIMperator

Once again not available in Switzerland, but in Eritrea. What a strange error. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Go BLADE BRUNNER! ;-)
