But I also have ESPN America here and sometimes watch WHL or OHL games so I'm much more interested in NA hockey.
Junior hockey in Germany is a complete different thing. In NA people even watch PeeWee hockey to scout the next Draft-Prospects, don't they? The only persons who watch German Junior hockey are probably parents or other family members.
Hi Folks, did anybody encounter the same problem? I have NHL Game Center Live and also ESPN America in case that ESPN has the broadcast rights and GCL is blacked out then in Germany. A few weeks ago I tried to watch Avalanche vs. Canucks on GCL but it was blacked out. So I switched on my TV but ESPN America showed baseball (boring).....I tried to reach the customer service of ESPN America but no answer at all. So basically I have two packages but no hockey. What if that happens now again during the playoffs
