Sabres games on NHL GameCenter

To make a long story short, I've grown tired of paying $100+ every month for cable/satellite. I'd like to get rid of it, but find myself keeping it virtually just for watching the Sabres. Sounds like its subject to blackout rules, so I don't know if it would be worth it. Anyone in WNY try NHL GameCenter? Thoughts, comments, etc. are welcome.

If you're in Buffalo, you won't be able to watch the Sabres.

Games are blocked out if you have a buffalo ip address.

You can buy a vpn somewhere and connect to that and watch it I'm assuming

I use it (not in Buffalo) and as a service, it's really nicely done. It has some hiccups here and there, but overall it's worth the money.

I like the product, but it's way too glitchy. I got kicked out of watching the game probably 6 or 7 times last night telling me I need to sign back in. Blackout restrictions SUCK where I am too. No VS for anybody with GCL, and I'm in the Isles, Rangers, Flyers, and Devils market.

Message me, I'll give you some sites to watch all sports on. I refuse to buy cable because all I watch is sports. Cable is just a big Ponzi scheme.

The local blackout rule is incredibly hilarious. I refuse to buy cable just to watch the Sabres, so I considered GameCenter. Alas it is useless to me.

The television system is this country is awful communistic, with tons of weird conflict of interest cross industry deals that just restrict consumer choice.

MSG pays a lot of money to the Sabres to get exclusive rights to show the games in this area. Sucks but that's just how it is.
