Man the PS3 is just getting better and better, several months ago we received MLB on the PS3. As of today, we are getting the NHL, heck even Canada is getting it. How awesome is that Canada?
Currently the PS3 is the only console that can stream live Hockey games, and if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you get the application for FREE. Those of you that are not subscribers of PlayStation Plus, can still get the app but it will cost you $9.99.
In addition to offering live hockey games, NHL GameCenter LIVE also allows subscribers to watch full-length and condensed replays of the current season games they missed (48 hours after they air, no blackouts) and relive NHL history with unlimited access to over 500 classic games from NHL Vault.
To get started you will need to visit www.ps3.com/nhl to get an account and ultimately link it to your PS3 using a registration code obtained through the app on your device. The subscription is going to cost you $169 (U.S.) annually. Even if you’re not interested in paying $169, grab the app anyways as it will give you access to a wide range of NHL content through the NHL GameCenter application. Fans will have access to features such as post-game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats and profiles, and the full NHL scoreboard.
