Get NHL live on your iPhone/Blackberry/Android phone for free
So recently I discovered a way to listen to the NHL Live show on my phone while parked on the 405 during my morning commute. No XM/Sirius subscription required. I don't think there's a legal issue here. If there was, Apple, the Pens, the NHL, and XM/Sirius would have stopped it. Here's what you gotta do:
Go to your respective phone's app store: App Store, Blackberry world, Android market, etc.
Download and install: iHeartRadio. It is free for the iPhone... I'm sure it's the same for other platforms.
Once installed, launch the app, browse to All Cities, Pittsburgh PA, then select Pittsburgh Penguins Radio 105-9 HD2... and voila.
They stream the NHL Live show every day and have interesting stuff on other times. You will also be able to stream some games that are on XM as well.
I'm not sure if there's an easier way to do this... but it's what I've found and works really well for me in the car. They've been discussing the Kings quite a bit lately so it's even more fun. This doesn't replace my canceled XM subscription but it definitely helps with the hockey fix in the morning.
Edit: Show starts at 9am pacific.
