The NHL would not make any money off of showing the commercials and it takes less bandwidth to show an NHL ad picture than to broadcast commercials.
I get Center Ice and have noticed this this year. I have had it since after the lost season at least.
I have always seen commercials.
Now I dont see the local commercials.
