Hockey Returns to PlayStation 3

Hockey fans have another reason to rejoice with the announcement of the NHL GameCenter app that brings live streaming of out-of-market hockey games in HD. The new app can be downloaded for free with full access provided to NHL GameCenter subscribers.

Non-subscribers will have access to an array of content that includes post game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats, and full NHL scoreboard. The free content alone may be worth the download for NHL fans or people that love statistics and numbers.

Subscribers definitely get a ton of content that make the subscription worth it. Included content is as follows:

  • Stream 2012-2013 games that are not restricted due to local blackout restrictions
  • Full length and condensed replays of games from the current season
  • Ability to follow favorite teams during home and away broadcasts
  • Live scoreboard with game updates
  • Calendar to plan what to watch for the entire season
  • Pause, fast forwar, and rewind functionality to replay hot shot or hard hits
  • Access to over 800 classic games from 1960s to present day
  • Full length replays of all games since 2008-2009 season

Hockey fans can take advantage of all these features for $49.99 for a year subscription or two installments of $24.99. This is a great deal for fans that might not be interested in paying to watch the games on premium cable channels or lack a cable service but want to keep up with their teams.
