Streaming Games Internationally

This is a question for the non-NA people here. What do you think is the best option for watching games online? I know that JustinTV has blocked the use of proxies and asks non-NA IPs to buy a premium account. Buying RDS streams has not been possible in many international markets, what's the deal with NHL Game Center do you get every Habs game for US$4,95/m?

What do other international fans do to get their stream? I don't care if it's English or French commentary by the way.

Thanks!

Well I'm not sure about the extent of GameCenter, but as long as you are not within the region of a local broadcaster, you will not get blacked out. So if you live outside of the continent, you will most likely be able to watch games from all 30 teams. That's pretty awesome.

Checked again and Game Center is US$159,00/season, still it looks a dependable option, bonus is no blackouts in Japan.

Using www.espnplayer.com myself too and I've been pretty happy. Espn360 is the old name, it was re-branded to Espnplayer last March. Last season the play-offs were 35€, so it's 115€ for the real whole season. Their on-demand archive is nice too.

Checked and seems ESPNPlayer is for Europe & Middle East: "NHL content on ESPN Player is available in every country across the European continent (except for Russia and Italy) and is also available in the Middle East", shows no NHL games in Japan, seems they split up the markets. In Japan GameCenter covers the NHL. Price is about the same.

I'm in my third season of membership on www.hockeystreams.com and I love the site. Not only do I get all the NHL preseason, regular season and playoffs, but I also get the world junior championships at christmas time and the world championships around playoff time. On top of that I get the draft every year, usually the TSN trade deadline special, and the Olympics when it is on.

what's the difference between hockeystreams.com and other sites like Justin.tv? Are their streams exclusive to the paying members of the website and is the quality any better than Justin.tv or myp2p.eu?

NHL GameCenter live is the best choice


this year, you can even choose the feed you want to watch the game.

If you can afford it, it's great. Especially when games are played at a time that doesn't allow to watch them live all the time. Here in France, most games start at 1 am. I just get up earlier in the morning and watch them while having breakfast.
Didn't know you could choose the feed, I hope this feature will be available with espn player.

I use atdhe.net and livescorehunter.com for free streams if you don't feel like paying although I imagine the quality is better on hockeystreams.com. I'm in Australia and have seen every game broadcast at home.

i just suscribed to hockeystreams.com for a month and it looks incredibly good: you have the choice of multiple bandwitch sizes, there's no blackout restrictions and you have access to a ton of archived games.

It really is worth the 15$ a month compared to free sites like Justin.tv and such
