CBC Hockey for iPhone: stream games live

CBC Hockey from the iconic Hockey Night in Canada series is a free download from the iTunes App Store and comes ready to stream all the live NHL hockey playoff action straight to your iPhone -- via $2.99 in-app purchase.

  • LIVE box scores from every NHL game
  • Standings by division and conference
  • Stats for every team, every player
  • League leaders for points, goals,+/-, GAA, Sv%, and Wins
  • CBC Sports stories and features from our writers
  • Complete NHL schedule including CBC broadcasts and streaming info

And no, I'm not just posting this because of Montreal's stellar playoff victory last night against Pittsburgh (for those who are more geek than hockey freak, that was the team with the big C's on their chests beating the guys wearing the Linux Tux jerseys).

CBC Hockey for iPhone: stream games live


I just downloaded and installed it via the app store on my phone and I can't even get past the start up splash screen. The app keeps crashing. Not a good first impression. I'll try it again on a computer when I get a chance.
But until then do you have any idea if it is 2.99 a game or for all the games?

Nevermind, in the reviews it looks like the live streaming isn't available in the U.S. I'll keep my official NHL Ice Time app instead, the free version serves all my needs.

What's funny is the bad reviews people give it because they think the CBC is 100% tax payer funded. Apparently they've never seen a commercial during a hockey game and think the NHL works and plays for the CBC.

@Don, thats because most iPhone users, and in general most people on the internet are simply dumb f'ing idiots with little to no brains. Thats why, our future is so f'ed.
@PeanutGallery it's 2.99/game not for all

@Vince, The people who watch hockey are the people who do not watch boring Baseball!
I used this app and purchased Game 6 Habs/Penguins. Video quality not all the good, but, better then missing the game.
@Geo Coldz Who is your favorite team? The Leafs? How is golf season going? Holding last place there as well?

Let's hear it for my chi town blackhawks huh! Up 2-0 upon Philth-adelphia, and in addition those flyers aren't even in the rear view mirror. I believed almost all yr long i'd personally be seeing chicago in the finals, just simply to tough plus to seasoned of a crew. Additionally i'm going to take virtually any chance i have to blast Philly!
