New NHL app brings live hockey games to the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick

The NHL have just released a new app for all Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television models. The new app gives access to NHL TV where hockey fans can watch out-of-market games live and on demand. The app features a free game of the week to give it a try, but you’ll generally need an NHL TV subscription to enjoy everything the app has to offer. Games through the NHL app are streamed in HD at 60 frames per second.

    About time! I’ve been grumbling at the NHL for years now for their refusal to have an Android TV/ Fire TV app.
    Now I can retire my Roku’s.

    • Tim Hunter says:

      No kidding. I used to have to run Kodi w/ an extension to watch my NHL Gamecenter on my Fire TV Stick. Too late now as I use my Xbox One to watch the games now, but better late than never and should help some people.

  2. Jp says:

    Anyone know? Will cable sub logins work for this or do you need to sub the nhl site specific package?

    • Ujn Hunter says:

      NHL Gamecenter Live or NHL.TV, I guess it’s called now… doesn’t have anything to do with Cable. So, no, there is no cable sub login. You will however still need Cable if you want to watch any Nationally broadcasted games or local teams games, as they will be blacked out on NHL.TV for you.

      • Richard says:

        Speaking of blackouts they consider EVERY playoff game to be nationally televised and therefore blacked out.

        • Steven Summo says:

          Is there any way to view the NHL Network on the firestick?

          • Ujn Hunter says:

            Nope. It’s a paid channel through your cable company. With Comcast you can only get the NHL Network if you pay for their Sports Package or whatever they call it, no idea how other companies work, or if they carry the channel.

  3. David says:

    Directv Center Ice subscription gives access to NHL TV.

    • Tim Hunter says:

      Does it really? I didn’t realize that… do you know if Xfinity Comcast Center Ice does as well? I’d rather buy a subscription that worked through Cable TV & Internet for one price than just the Internet, but I don’t have DirectTV.

  4. John says:

    can someone pls kindly extract the apk file?

    Thank you.

  5. Ray says:

    Doesn’t allow Canadian subscribers through Rogers Gamecentre to log in which sucks.

  6. Richard says:

    I just spoke to NHL support to try to get any answer to a question for this app and was told that the FireTV & FireTV Stick were unsupported devices. Has Amazon released pirate software or does the NHL have NO IDEA what they’re doing?

  7. Silvia says:

    Hi. Does anyone know how not to see the results permanently? I remove them in the Settings section. But when reconnecting the app, they are seen again. Do you have quality downloads in the image? With the Kodi app it did not happen to me. Thank you

  8. Edward A Lionetti says:

    We have Amazon Fire Stick. We do not have cable or Direct TV. How do we get NHL Center Ice?

    • Tim Hunter says:

      I don’t think you can get NHL Center Ice, but you can get NHL.TV (formerly NHL Gamecenter Live) which is basically the online version of NHL Center Ice, note that there are blackout restrictions which also means that every playoff game is blacked out along with any games played on national TV or local TV. I haven’t personally used the Amazon Fire TV NHL.TV app, but I do use the app on Xbox One.

  9. Joel says:

    Will this work for in market games? I’m a Flyers fan who lives in the greater Philadelphia are. If I drop cable will I be able to watch the Flyers with this?

  10. Andrew says:

    I just bought a firestick. Amazon says the app is not available on Amazon app store. Thus according to Amazon can not be installed on a firestick. Nhl says it is supported on firestick and can be downloaded from Amazon app store. Does this thing actually exist? If anyone has actually installed it on a firestick let me know where you got it from.

    • David Hood says:

      I also haven’t been able to download the app. Have you found a way?

      • Aaron says:

        I just purchased an individual season pass for my team and cannot find the app on Amazon Firestick. I paid for the service on my iPhone and it looks like it wants to charge me again when you open up the email on Amazon fire stick. (sigh)

  11. Jim says:

    How do I add the app I can’t find it

  12. Miketr says:

    ok, so not getting the fire stick issue with watching NHL hockey.
    Am I correct to say, to understand we, in Canada can not watch hockey any other way than by cable or satellite?

  13. Will says:

    Yeah NHL.TV’s site says that it’s compatible, but the NHL App doesn’t show up in the Fire TV’s app store, and then when I try to download it to the cloud through Amazon’s website, it says that my Fire sticks aren’t compatible devices.

    ?? What’s true?

  14. Alan Falcony says:

    Hello. I can’t watch live (or any game) on my kindle fire even though I have a subscription. Can anyone help me please? Thanks!

    • Ujn Hunter says:

      It’s the NHL Playoffs right now which means all the games are broadcast on national TV and therefore won’t be shown on NHL.TV as it’s only for games not in your local area or games not broadcast nationally. i.e. It’s only for the regular season.

  15. tony berci says:

    will this app be carrying the U18 medal games this weekend? i have it up on my amazon firestick.

    • Ujn Hunter says:

      No. U18 is not NHL. NHL Network (the subscription TV channel which is not the same as NHL.TV) is broadcasting the games however. Only way to watch that as far as I’m aware is with a cable subscription and a Sports package add-on.

      • tony berci says:

        Thanks. I thought that might be the case. My cable provider (WOW) doesn’t carry or support the NHL Network. I thought I was in with the app but no luck. I live in Plymouth Michigan and Team USA plays right down the street. I watched them live all year so naturally I was hoping to watch them play for the World Championship. Thanks again for your quick reply.
