Good call. I forgot about that. I believe Comcast customers get that too.

Edit: Just saw that Fox SS has the Canes game at midnight and the Preds game at 3 AM. great.

That's terrible! Surely they're playing one of the games live at some time.

There's an article mentioning that incident in the Winnipeg Free Press:

The actual quote is "Obviously, for them to recognize me from the car ahead was something that usually doesn't happen." So far as I can tell he never said one word about Atlanta - no comparisons or anything.

Indeed, in the comments to that article there's speculation suggesting that this happens to folks all the time (that is, folks getting their coffee paid for by the car in front - apparently, it's just something folks like to do up there), and that Ladd might not actually have been recognized at all - just in the right place at the right time.

It's still a Winnipeg pat-yourself-on-the-back bit ("look how nice we are to folks"), but not really at Atlanta's expense per se.

You are correct, the "Atlanta" was totally added by the radio guys. I googled "Andrew Ladd coffee" yesterday lol. For me it does change the severity of it a bit. Still no fan of Ladd, but his cup of coffee is not longer pissing me off

Comcast usually has the free trial too. Not sure about other providers, but it seems like it might be kind of standardized.

I ordered GameCenter Live on 1 October. It's well worth the money. Very happy with my purchase, I am.

Best of all, they make it easy to follow more than one game, with the picture-in-picture functionality. I can turn on my Wings game when it starts, and follow the Preds when they start.

^They usually have the last week or two of the regular season as well because MLB Extra Innings uses the same channels and has its free trial around then.

Oh, and here's the full schedule of what we're getting live

Honestly, I'm kinda diggin this split schedule biz. I get to see the teams I'm familiar with and a whole new set of teams I'm not used to watching. Combine that with game Center..... Score!!!

Two things of note:

-They have Carolina vs. Preds on only one schedule, so there's an extra Preds game.

-Combined, we get 7 Winnipeg games.

I looked ahead last night at both SS and FS and didn't see the Canes/Caps game listed at 7PM on 10/8. I saw a rebroadcast in the middle of the night on FS just like last season.

Are links to streams still allowed on HF? If so, don't spend the money on GameCenter. There is always a stream for the games if it is televised anywhere.

There's much complaining between us Atlanta fans on Twitter about it, but it doesn't seem to have made it here yet.

This is a screen capture of what I get on my GameCenter Live when I try to pull up the Preds and Canes games:



That's right. Both teams are blacked out in Atlanta.

So does anyone have a number to the NHL? Comcast said they don't know anything about blackouts and don't have a number they can give me to anyone who might.

I also called Gamecenter Live and the guy was really sympathetic and said other people have complained about it as well. He's talked to his manager about it and said they're going to try to maybe talk to the NHL and get the games for us. He said he didn't have a phone number for them either though. Agreed that we were getting screwed though.

Serious, though, I'm really not sure. You might be able to email them via NHL.com.

Hurricanes pregame show is on FS South, so the guide being wrong doesn't seem to matter. Looks like we'll get the game as we've been told.

Anybody in Atlanta able to get the Canes game? Not on FSS for me, and blacked out otherwise on GCL.
