Last year, I traveled to NYC, Boston, and Chicago and was able to watch the Preds vs LA Kings online via NHL Gamecenter. But I don't know if that is always the case for everyone. But it worked for me
So I'm guessing it is based on IP addresses...
This is where it gets so confusing for me. If I'm here, I can watch on fox sports on my tv....so center ice blackout doesn't matter---- but if I am out of town and the game in nashville isn't on center ice ---where does the computer think I am? Does it pick up the network that you're hooked up to wifi on and go "oh, this computer isn't in Nashville" so you can see the game? That's kind of what it sounds like from what you're saying.
I just remember people complaining about having nhl gamecenter and then not being able to see the games.
So is the IP address also the geographic location of the computer (for some reason I thought it was more like an id code of the machine).
Anyway, I'm just trying to decide if I want to pick up nhl gamecenter specifically for long periods of time out of town when I want to see Preds games and am not in this area. And if it matters where I am physically with the computer when I initially sign up for it.
