The first games this weekend will be english/swedish depending of the game (all the early games tomorrow are in swedish which sucks big time).
Are you sure? The Viaplay GCL website lists all the games this weekend now (it didn't earlier in the week), so I don't quite understand why they wouldn't be streamed live.

Question for you guys.

I had gamecenter one season because me and my buddy shared it, but one thing I found incredibly annoying was that you couldn't watch games that have already been played without seeing the final score already.

Can someone tell me if there is a way around this? Kind of makes the game harder to watch if you know the score already...

There is an option to shut off scores. Anytime you go to the page it will not show the scores.

You can turn off the scores in the top right corner. However, they still list if the game ended in regular time or OT/shootout.

I'm hoping that is changed this year. Kind of ridiculous for them to show anything regarding the result. They should also not show the length of the game.

Confirmed: Just got off the phone with Rogers. They are offering CI as a stand alone service, much like PPV. So it's 49.99$ for the season and Jan. 19-31 is a free preview.

i dont know if this was always available but on direct TV i have NHL network. which has a few games per year from various different teams. and has a ton on news around the NHL. Hope this helps someone.

P.S channel 215, it may not show up in your "guide" but you still may have it!!

Quick question....

I was thinking about splitting GCL with my friend, would we be able to both use it at the same time and watch different games?

I've used ESPN 360 for the past seasons and I am pretty sad that they aren't offering NHL this year, or so it seems.

So one question about GCL, can I watch it on a OSX (Mountain Lion) without any of these stupid apps (there seem to be none for OSX? or can I just watch it on AppleTV without buying AppleTV?...

Quick question, I purchased GCL via iTunes store, because of store credit. There shouldnt be a problem watching it on laptop, though, right? The confirmation I got states I purchased GCL for iPad

No, it doesn't. I tried that with a friend last season and when I was watching, as soon as she logged in watching her game, I was disconnected, maybe it worked for a minute or two, but I was kicked off the stream eventually

Nope unfortunately not. As soon as someone else logs on, it will kick the 1st person who was viewing off. Can't even view two of them from within your own house I don't think.

No, you'll each need your own account.

I actually bought an HDMI connector for my laptop and hooked it up to my tv. The quality was great, and my feed only froze/buffered once or twice all season. It's probably what I'll do again this year if they don't sort out the problems with the PS3 app.

As far as my tablet, it runs almost perfectly on it. The quality is great, but it could be even better. Feeds never froze or stuttered on my tablet. Same goes for my phone, but that screen is just too small for my taste. The main issue with the tablet is there doesn't seem to be a way to watch replays of games. I don't know why they wouldn't include that feature.

I hope this was helpful.
Big help, thanks. I'll give the PS3 app a try for a bit, hoping that works. Then if I run into problems I'll try your trick with the laptop, since I have a spare HDMI cable I can use. Thanks for the info for the tablet, looking forward to watching games on mine.
