Customers with 4G at Verizon score free premium upgrade to NHL Gamecenter app

Customers with 4G at Verizon score free premium upgrade to NHL Gamecenter app
Besides offering its customers the exclusive NFL Mobile app, Verizon now has  a special edition of the NHL Gamecenter app that is available in the Android Market for all of its Android totin' hockey fans. The app brings you live streaming of NBC telecasts (an exclusive for Big Red), special NBC features like StarCam, "Inside the Glass" and special replays of key turning points (also a Verizon exclusive).

The app also delivers the usual things like scores, standings, the NHL schedule, news, pictures and player profiles. You can also select your favorite squad and unlock special team information. Now, as those who installed the NFL Mobile app might attest to, there are a host of very cool features available for free if you are a Verizon 4G customer (those who are not must subscribe to VCast video to receive live NFL telecasts and Red Zone). Verizon has done the same thing with the NHL Gamecenter app. Those who are LTE users can receive the premium package for free while the rest have to pay $9.99 to upgrade.

If you are a real NHL fan, the premium version of the app is the way to go as it gives you live play-by-play radio broadcasts of all games, live streaming of NHL Network's "On the Fly" (exclusive to Verizon), in-game video highlights and more. If you are a Verizon 4G customer, simply download the app and watch any highlight video. You will automatically start receiving the premium content. For Verizon's 3G customers, you will have to be content with the regular version of the app or lay out the $9.99 necessary to upgrade.

Verizon is telling its subscribers who are hockey fans that if you don't have an LTE enabled handset, you deserve two minutes in the penalty box. And if you're wondering about an NBA app that offers the same features as NHL Gamecenter, you will find it exclusively on Sprint's smartphones. The nation's third largest carrier recently became the official mobile carrier partner of the NBA replacing T-Mobile.
