On the NHL.TV™ Media Center page (nhl.com/tv), selecting the "Schedule" tab will open a list of today's games, accompanied by available game feed options. The current date will be displayed upon log in. Select the Left or Right arrows next to the date to navigate to the previous or next day. Select the calendar icon next to the date to open up the monthly calendar view, where you can navigate by month and select any specific day to view all scheduled games. You can also press the "Today" button below the monthly calendar to return to the current day's games.

From the Schedule page, to launch a game on NHL.TV™, select the desired video or audio feed to the right of the game. All available feeds will be listed. Launching a game will open the browser-based web media player.

When watching a live game in the NHL.TV™ video player, navigating your mouse over the video player will cause the video playback controls to appear. Use these playback controls to restart a game from the beginning, move forward or backwards in the feed by 10 seconds, or toggle between pausing and playing the game. You can also navigate through the game video by selecting a point on the clickable scrubbing bar at the bottom of the video player. If the Hide Scores option is turned "Off", you can navigate to specific game events by clicking the green dot indicators or period markers on the scrubbing bar.

At the top of the NHL.TV™ media player page is a schedule of all the selected day's games. Use the arrows to scroll through the day's games, and select a team name icon to launch the team's video feed when available. Clicking the Calendar icon above the day's score ticker at right will open up the monthly schedule view. Select any date to view the schedule of available games in the day's score ticker below. Once the desired game has been chosen and is playing, you can select the "Available Broadcasts" drop-down menu directly above the playing video at top right to choose any alternate video or audio feeds or alternate angles.

With NHL.TV™, it is easy to watch more than one Hockey game at the same time. Next to the scrubbing bar at the bottom of the video player is the "View" option, which lets you choose Single, Picture in Picture, Dual or Quad mosaic mode. Select one of these options to launch additional video viewers inside the media player. Click on any viewer to highlight it and make it the primary player. Use the game score ticker above the media player to select a game feed option to launch in any selected video viewer. Once the desired game has been chosen and is playing, you can select the "Available Broadcasts" drop-down menu directly above the playing video at top right to choose any alternate video or audio feeds or alternate angles.

Below the video player is where game statistics are located. The scoring summary box immediately beneath the video player lists team scores and goal information (scorer and time) and has a "Gamecenter" option that launches the matchup recap page. Below the scoring summary are the game's box score and a Stats and Plays column. Select Stats or Plays to view detailed game information, or view a team's box score by selecting the team name.

In the bottom right of the media player are additional video controls. Selecting "CC" will enabled closed captioning for a selected video. The volume slider adjusts video playback volume. Selecting the network strength bars will allow you to choose a playback quality rate of "High" "Medium" or "Low." Select the appropriate option based on your Network connection if bandwidth is an issue. The last button at bottom right enables full screen for the video player.

Additional video player settings are located by clicking the gear option at the top right of the media player page. In the "General" tab, you can choose to "Hide scores from all games" if you want to turn off game spoilers. You can also enable closed captioning from here as well. The "Team" tab will allow you to add or remove Favorite and Followed teams. Star your favorite teams, and add other teams you would like to follow, to personalize your NHL.TV™ experience.
