It sucks that you can only watch "out of market games." So in cleveland I won't get columbus or pittsburg (pitt plays buf x3 or I wouldn't care). In most of western ny you can't see buf on gamecenter. Also, all national games on nbc, nbcsports, nhl, cbc, and another canadian network count as in-market. That's something like 12 games for the sabres, and is only slightly relieved by the fact that nbc puts their games up online for free. For the other 8 or 9 national non-nbc games I'll be streaming or going to the bar.
If you can deal with all that, 50$ for 35-40 games online is a pretty great deal.
Same kinds of issues for me with Gamecenter Live. I suspect they'll iron it out.
CBC games aren't in-market for me on Gamecenter. I watched two last night. It's really lame that NHL Network games are blacked out, though.
