Blackhawks Official App FAQ

I have the Official Blackhawks App for iPhone or Android and am now being prompted to install/open the Official NHL App. Why?

The Official Blackhawks App is now a customized Blackhawks experience built into the NHL App.

But I'm only interested in accessing Blackhawks content and information, not league news and stats.

No problem, just select the Blackhawks as your Favorite team when prompted and the NHL App functions as the Blackhawks App. 

With all of the same content and information that was offered in the previous app?

Yes. You can still: listen to live radio broadcasts, get the latest Blackhawks TV video features, watch highlights, read the latest news articles, as well as access the Schedule, Stats and follow every game in real-time. And more. No NHL content interferes with your Blackhawks app experience.

Why did the Blackhawks merge into the NHL App?

Several factors, including it is the only hockey app that gives Blackhawks fans access to stream live game audio broadcasts, see up-to-the-moment video highlights and watch live out-of-market games via NHL.TV.

You also have the ability to watch select key plays and pivotal moments from every Blackhawks game with in-game and postgame highlights, and follow along with the live game simulation with active game clock, shift changes, boxscores and play-by-play.

But now I have two app icons on my device - the Blackhawks and NHL - and don't want both.

Once you've selected the Blackhawks as your Favorite in the NHL app, you can delete the Blackhawks icon.

What if I prefer to access the app with the Blackhawks icon?

That's fine, too. Move the NHL app icon to wherever you'd like to store it and continue to use the Blackhawks icon to launch the new app experience.

Does the new Blackhawks app experience apply to iPad and Android tablets?

It will. An update is expected within the next few months. This is one of the benefits of the new app, as the previous version was only available on Android phones but not tablets. Thank you for your patience.

I still have a question or suggestion to make the app better.
