What is the Free Canucks App and the Canucks Live App?

The free Canucks app gives you instant, one-tap access to exclusive photo galleries, live behind-the scenes video from the games, social media feeds, message boards, and player cards.

The Canucks LIVE app (coming soon!) enables users to watch live streamed Sportsnet games, real-time game highlights and archived condensed games, as well as game previews, recaps, schedule and real time scoring.

Why does the score take so long to update?

There is a known issue with the marquee box on the scoreboard page lagging behind the box score information. This will be resolved in the next update and released before January.

I have purchased Canucks LIVE, but it says I am in a blackout area even though I live in BC or the Yukon. What should I do?

Firstly, ensure you have “Location Services” turned on for your Safari browser by going to Settings>Location Services.

If you are located inside BC/Yukon and get this message and are NOT able to accept and continue to view video, please send a message to mobile@canucks.com immediately and include details on your device, carrier, connection type as well as your postal code. Please also send us the following device-specific information:

  • iPhone: Exit App > Go to iPhone Settings > Click on General > Click on About and send us the time your tried to access and your Serial Number (listed in About).

Why am I getting an "insufficient network bandwidth" error when I try to watch games?

If you are not connecting via Wifi, and have solid signal strength, please note your device and Serial number (Settings > General > About), as well as carrier and connection type, and send these details to mobile@canucks.com. If possible also go to go to mobilespeedtest.com in the iPhone browser, run the speed test and include the results in your email.

While your device may show a strong signal, your device may lack the dedicated bandwidth to play the live feed. Allow the feed to buffer. If the feed does not correct, try connecting via wifi.

Why is the video/radio and schedule not loading?

Please check to make sure your signal strength is full and has 3G coverage. If available, try connecting your device to WIFI if the problem persists. If your mobile device's signal strength is full and the video/radio or schedule is still not loading, please try closing and reopening the application. If you are using a public WIFI site, make sure that you open a browser and accept their terms and conditions, so that you are connected to the internet.

When the App was first announced, I heard Rogers mention that streaming of the game via 3G would not incur data usage for the duration of the season. Is this true?

This is Rogers' intention, although the technology for zero-rating video feeds lies with Rogers. Please contact your provider.

I am a Rogers Wireless customer, but when I click on "Rogers-only Video" it asks for a password. What should I do?

Exclusive Rogers content requires a password that is supplied via a short code: text 'password' to 5555 to receive a message from Rogers.

I see multiple Rogers Exclusive videos in the video tab, how come there are so many?

Users should only see two to three exclusive videos in the Videos tab. If you continually see more, exit to the home screen double-click the home button, press and hold the Free App icon until it shakes, then close by touching the red ‘minus’ icon. Exit to home screen and relaunch the app.

I get an error message when I try to watch video in the Live Blackberry app that says: "Your device is not properly configured to play video in the Canucks Live app. Please ensure direct TCP is available and setup correctly on your device." What does this mean?

You must make a change to the APN setting on your device. From you Blackberry desktop, choose Option (the wrench icon) > Advanced Options > TCP, then check the box to enable APN. If you are a Rogers or Bell customer, type: "internet.com" in the APN field. Save and restart your device.

I am an iPhone user and I see an incorrect calendar in this season's schedule. what can i do?

Please update your app through an update in the Apple Store. This will fix the calendar  bug.

How do I turn on/off the push notifications on my iPhone for game scores and updates?

Click on your iPhone's Settings icon and select Notifications. Select the Canucks app and modify your notification preferences.

Why can’t I watch games that are on TSN or CBC?

As the Canucks LIVE App streams all Sportsnet Pacific and Sportsnet Vancouver Hockey games, TSN and CBC games are not available.

I purchased the Canucks LIVE App last season. Will it work this year?

Coming soon.

How do I see the live box score in the Free Apps?
