NHL to be added to XBOX LIVE
 
Great move for the NHL, and Xbox Live.

Will order NHL Gamecenter because of this.

Do they seriously not know what the name of the NHL package is? I mean, they could have easily searched on Google. I also have a question. For anyone who had GCL on PS3, are you allowed to use it on a computer, too? I wonder this because I would get it if I can watch on my Xbox and also my computer (obviously at different times).

I'm pretty sure you can watch the GCL on Xbox and PC.

Don't know about PS3

Is it directly accessable with the Xbox, or do you have to subscribe to Microsoft's online service as well? I obviously have to have broadband to subscribe to NHL GameCentre Live on PC, but MS' online service would be one extra step.

Hmmm.... I'm interested. I've been thinking about reactivating my Xbox Live Gold account for a while now that I've got a stable job again, and this could very well be a very nice addition depending on how the service actually turns out.

Yes the PS3 GCL is just a PS3 app that allows you to access your online NHL subscription. There is basically 2 nhl options online and on tv. If you choose the online option you can watch it online anywhere with any device that can connect to the internet.

On PS3 you could always login to NHL.com threw the internet browser and watch that way. But there is an App to make it a lot easier.

However idk how it will work on Xbox it might be completely different

I gave up my cable and just got Xbox live again. Its way better value get a bunch of Points and you can just buy any tv shows you want

With the addition of GCL thats just a slam dunk for me!

You need cable to access some of the stuff on XBL though.

And the NHL GC app will prob be similar to the PS3 app

The Xbox is also getting a web browser.

Great addition to XBOX Live. Now I'll have another device to watch NHL games alongside my PS3 and Roku.

Is it GameCenter Live or Center Ice?

NBA League Pass is the equivalent of Center Ice.

Big McLargehuge 06-08-2012 02:15 PM

This makes me very happy. I probably watch three times as much baseball as I normally would because I'm able to watch MLB.tv on my XBox 360 while I'm on the computer.

I don't think it is, but I'll check later and post here when I know for sure.

Kane One 11-28-2012 05:13 PM

I doubt we will find out much about this until the lockout ends.

Shrimper 11-28-2012 05:49 PM

Will be a good move for the league. I bet there's a lot of people that would love to watch hockey but can't and this'll open up a new market for them. Can you play NHL on PS3?

Watch for the Yeti 11-28-2012 06:26 PM

I called Xbox Live and one of the reps said they intend on doing it once the lockout is over. "There is no point in putting it out for download if no games are being played" was what the rep said. She later said "Once the lockout ends, expect to see it." Of course its just a Xbox Live rep that answers the phones so I'm not sure how much she knows..

the_fan 11-28-2012 06:46 PM

Yeah but what are you gonna watch on it since there wont be NHL hockey for a while?

Wow this is fantastic news (obviously I missed this when it got announced).. Being an Xbox loyalist, I was so pissed that PS3 had GameCenter and we didn't.. I was just about to get an Apple TV for this but I guess I won't need to

Elever 11-28-2012 06:58 PM

Atm you can subscribe to NHL Game Center or whatever for $5/month on a blu ray player for example or PS3.

However why would you subscribe and provide your $ directly to those ******** right now? Honeslty show some restraint, atm all you can do on there anyways is watch games from the vault the majority of which are already up on youtube or google video or torrents.

Clock 11-28-2012 08:18 PM

Hunted for it, but couldn't see if this is going to blackout games in local markets. If that's the case... dealbreaker.

nyrmetros 11-29-2012 01:53 PM

Would this be included with xbox live gold or another separate fee?

SMantzas 11-29-2012 01:58 PM

I go to school in RI. Now I can watch my beloved Devils on tv instead of a computer? Sign me up

It would be a separate fee. The MLB TV is $20 a month (I think, it autodrafts out of my account).
