Besides that.. it is absolutely amazing. I hate watching internet streams. Why is it so great? Basically, you have DVR 3000kbps streaming, you can pause, rewind and now do SLOW MOTION. After 48 hours you can watch any game this season, so if you miss a game and want to watch it it's available.
If you can afford $20 a month, i highly recommend it. I just want to be able to watch 80%+ of the flyers games. If you know your going to miss 20 atlantic games, and then you add in national games plus your local games, it could not be worth it because you could almost not watch 1/3 of the games.
Wasn't aware of National Games being blacked out... Since he doesn't have Cable, he will not be able to see Vs games, only NBC regular over the air National games... I'm assuming that the Vs games are considered National games.
The way I see it, living in the NYC Area with three NHL teams is a hardship for fans of other teams in the Atlantic... all NYC Area teams are in the same Division... There should be a special case made for those fans and the blackout should be lifted if they vouch for their allegiance to another Atlantic Division Team.
Thanks for that information.
