Can I start watching a game from the beginning after it's already started? Or do I have to wait for it to be archived?
How long does it take for a game to be archived?
A big problem for me is that I have 3 teams getting local coverage here, so there's going to be quite a few blackout dates.
I haven't tried it, but it sounds like hockeystreams might work better for you than gamecenter. They claim to have better quality and no blackout dates, and are significantly cheaper. They have DVR functionality and a catalog of past games that you can watch, including the most recent one as soon as it ends. They are based out of somewhere in Europe, so the NHL can't do much about it. I'm going to sign up for a month or so to try it out once this NHL Center Ice free preview ends.
