OT: NHL Game Centre in Ontario
 
Do any Bruins fans have NHL Game Centre for Bruins games in Ontario? The games aren't blacked out here, are they? From my understanding, it's only in-market games that are unavailable.

Does NHL Game Centre grab the NESN feed?

Any help on this, and whether or not Game Centre is worthwhile would be great! I looked at NHL Centre Ice on my cable, but it's not available as a stand-alone, and has to be purchased with a NASCAR, NCAA, etc. package, which I couldn't care less about.

Any Nationally televised games will also be blacked out. Basically if you can get it on TV in your area, (TSN, CBC, LeafsTV, Sportsnet) it will be blacked out.

Alternatively you can use Game Center in conjunction with a proxy service like Unblock US and avoid any black out issues.

That's good... sounds like I can get most of the Bruins NESN games!

It really is a solid service. If you have Apple TV or Xbox 360, the app for both of those is really smooth, I like the 360 one in particular.

Yeah I've got the PS3, so I've been checking some reviews out online. Looks like a solid service.

Thanks for the help.

So far, for me, having Game Center on Shaw Direct in Eastern ON i've been able to get approx half the games with NESN feed and the other half is other team's feed.
Haven't had any games blacked out of Game Center yet...but it looks like tonight it'll only be on CBC. Only 1 game not HD so far (Devils game on MSG+).
