They are also not showing both home and away feeds of US teams this year as well. Less product ,no thanks.

Yes. A user is able to watch concurrently on up to two devices at a time.

I found the irony hilarious too.
I don’t watch tv that much with my busy life, but you can easily install STB emu or Tivi mate on a firestick for a fraction of the $200 that guy paid.

I pay Rogers for cable for the reliability of sports and other content.

It may be better option for someone to get Rogers or Bell TV with Sportsnet and TSN and use the accompanying login to stream the live channels. You’ll get way more channels to live stream.

I've watched with sportsnet now, tsn live, and bell's fibe tv, sportsnet is definitely the best quality and most reliable.

This MAY be the PC-based experience.... But it's 2022. Who wants to watch games on their PCs in an uncomfortable chair, far from food and drink??
It's ridiculous that they can't come up with decent, working apps for the few platforms that offer them, when the hardware is more than able to stream hockey games well.. Like PS4, XBOX, Amazon Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield...
Can confirm it's cut-out crappy on all of the above, all that are suited for a proper tv/home theatre setup.

Yeah, I was going to say... All the streaming TV Apps in Canada are pretty much absolute garbage... F the Big 3.

Still, what choices do we have. Funny, we have some of the best Computer Science faculties in the world, and yet can't get decent streaming apps or (the more than likely cause) bandwidth dedicated by our stingy Big 3 Telcos who actually OWN the infrastructure!! What a joke.. F CRTC while we're at it as well.

In this day and age, all the major streaming providers (including NetFlix) just lease Amazon Cloud server space (AWS) to host their servers -- which is real-time scalable based on userload. Our Big 3 providers would just rather fight amongst themselves and implicitly gouge Canadians with higher prices and poorer service, .. taking home their billions in profit each year.

$179 with the EARLYBIRD code makes it $15/month. For NHL, MLB, NBA, and other sports. If you're not an NFL fan, but more than just an NHL sports fan, this seems like a much better deal than previous $180 for just NHL Live. Remains to be seen though until the season actually starts and we see how this compares.
All wwe PPV as well if you're into that

If I put the tsn or sportsnet app on my nvidia shield and log in using my tv provider credentials…I could watch sports events on my lone tv that doesn’t have a cable box?


If so, my mind could be blown.
Yes, they have a choice of a regular provider or a tv provider login. It takes you to a login for your tv provider, ussually thier online portal for authentication.
I actually very rarely even use my tv boxes.
I think sheild has sportsnet but not sure if it has tsn.
Xbox does, as well as Samsung tvs.

For me, picture quality on sportsnet is actually better than my cable box, tsn a bit worse.

I chatted with them yesterday as well and they confirmed it's 2 live streams now and they don't have to be in the same location. It was previously limited to 1 device at a time and I was just going to get NHL Center Ice through my cable box.

The content would be worth it if the app wasn't the most basic, buggy piece of garbage streaming service I've ever used. It sucks!!! Doesn't even have the most basic of controls. They actually just removed the only control you used to have and now you can only skip 30 seconds at a time.

ive learnt with sports dont screw around with illegial streams and constant headaches. if you can pay for a cheaper legit stream from the states and use a vpn its an option. or just pay for basic cable and the sports package. shouldnt cost anymore then 50 a month. plus you can watch on ur laptop, phone, tablet, computer also. I do it for for sports at work. shaw tv.

Must be the generic provider you tried that can be found by just using google. I've been using one for 2 years with 0 issues.

I pay $10 usd/month and it sure as hell beats any cable provider considering I also get PPV content.

IPTV or 720p sportsnet just dont compare.

Sportsnet Now does 1080p for specific programming on certain hardware. NHL is almost always 1080p/60fps. Your hardware will determine if it will come in as 1080p or be downsampled to 720p.

I tried it for 1 month last year, illegal streams were better quality than SN Now. and that doesn't say much, considering illegal streams still suck on big screen modern TVs.

I've had that exact opposite experience. On my Nvidia shield TV, the feed from the SN Now App was better than from my actual cable service - I suspect the frame rate being 30 on cable was the reason why. I know of some illegal streams which match the video quality of the SNNow app (almost as if they're literally passing it through), but they butcher the audio. There is a very noticeable difference if you're using a surround system.

Which device were you using to stream from? Might be worth checking the list to see if you should be getting 720p or 1080p.

From what I've seen, most illegal NHL streams were 6000 mbps (or less) SN streams and looked on par with a 720p stream. Some were closer to 1080p. None of them were as good as the SN stream they derived from.

Search 'sportsnet' on Twitter 10 minutes into some of the first regular season games this season. The poster isn't alone.

My PC is fine, but my hardwired NVIDIA Shield, my S8 and S10 on data and on wifi all struggle. They screwed up their app late last October and the buffering and errors and crashing of the app was ridiculous. Seemed to be multiple carriers (SaskTel for me, would be other poster on other providers with the same issues at the same time.

I could find alternate sources of the game that did not have the issue.

Sportsnet support is beyond horrible.

Is there any way to record games on IPTV/Alternate streams to watch later?
