This app really stinks
Good news is many of the play-by-play announcers do a good job.
Those assets are lost on an app that does nearly everything poorly. Most of these comments are in regard to the Apple TV app, but are relevant here because iPhone/iPad screens are just too small to see anything - especially since the camera operators never zoom on the action or players. The only use for the mobile apps would be for data entry or device control of an Apple TV.
1. Apple TV app: every week I have to scroll through hundreds of teams to get to ours. And the app scrolls either too slowly, or way too fast. Simple solution is to add an index bar to the right!
2. No integration between Apple TV and iPhone/iPad. This would allow data entry on the iPhone to control the Apple TV.
3. Apple TV app: no Favorites! This would solve #1, to an extent.
4. No useful game info. A viewer needs several pieces of information to understand the game context.
- what period?
- what is the score?
- how much time left in the period?
- is there a penalty, and how much time is left?
- SOG is a nice to have
Doesn’t seem technically daunting to provide this. When it is displayed it is only time and score, which is almost always wrong.
5. The camera never zooms.
For $30/month they need to invest more on improving the entire platform. If there’s one ‘worst’, that would be #5 - without it we’re just looking at a video, not a hockey game.
Still Ripping Off Hockey Families
If you have family playing junior hockey out of town, you’ve got no choice. These guys know it, and are running an absolute racket. There is no quality control, several games a year are simply not shown and the developers don’t care.
This app is an absolute disgrace, as is their base pc product. It exists only because it is a monopoly. If you have any way to avoid forking over money to the trash that runs this operation, I suggest you find it.
I also implore any junior hockey league to move on from this platform. Just have somebody periscope the games with an iPhone. The quality will probably be better and you can save your parents some hard-earned money.
Developer Response ,
Hi Bennihana! We're sorry that you're having trouble. We'll work with you to sort through this issue. Could you please send an email to email@example.com with a description of your problem along with your device model as well as your version of iOS (located under Settings>General>About>Version). That will assist the group to have the developers determine why this is taking place and work towards resolving it. We apologize for this inconvenience, and we thank you in advance for your assistance in rectifying this situation. Thank you!
Believe the negativity. These people are absolutely raking in cash and know their service is sub par. This review is not about the app alone, it’s about HockeyTV in general. Jesus Christ, the streams are AWFUL for the price. The yearly subscription cost must be a joke. I can’t imagine anyone other than travel players parents purchasing this. The team you want to watch probably isn’t viewable under community, and you won’t be told that before purchasing a useless subscription and being pulled into a more expensive one. Unfortunately if you want to watch junior hockey, this is probably your only route.... and the devs know it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
