I FINALLY got CI through Rogers for $50 this evening and was able to cancel the inclusion of that stupid sports pak.

It's about ****ing time.

FYI

If you're a previous subscriber to CI and you're not interested in getting it this year, make sure you call and cancel (at least with DirceTV), because they automatically renew the service... I totally spaced on that.

Said I wouldn't once the season started. Said I couldn't, no way, not gonna do it. But I did anyway. $50 bucks on Verizon FIOS. Yup, I'm a hockey fan hypocrite. Gary and Co. got me again. Wife pays the cable bill in an automated fashion and I know she doesn't check the actual bill. Let's see if she notices.

Life has its little bonuses!

Read that first post about using a proxy server during sign in to trick it into thinking you're elsewhere - Firefox and stealthy.co . Not exactly legit but it works, at least it did in the past before we had game centre in this country.... Good luck. Any questions drop me a PM
You may have just saved me.

Normally, I'd take it and lump it but I don't see why we should be blacked out so if it does black us out then I'll use that.

I know you're not meant to but I have no other choice and it's not like they can find out is it?

I know what you mean, it's ridiculous blacking out basically the best games each week then the playoffs.

The only way they'd find out I reckon is if your IP was in England one game then America the next. I plan on using the proxy to sign in everytime so the IP is always American. Make sense? Once you're signed in you can turn it off for faster streaming, at least this is how it always used to work, no promises!

Yeah, sounds like what we'll have to do. Sent them an e-mail with my IP asking to be removed from blackouts so if that doesn't work then I'll use VPN's.

Not sure if this has already been said but it looks like CI is doing a free preview, at least on FIOS. I just tried bringing up one of the CI channels to see what happened and I got a schedule of games to be broadcast rather than one of those 'you do not subscribe to this service' messages. I guess they're still doing the free two week preview they usually do even though the season is abbreviated.

Does anyone know when the PS3 App for Gamecenter is released? I just tried to get it to work today but they said the app for this season hasn't been released yet, lame.

From NHL Chat support they told me the 21st.

So unfortunately the only way to watch the games this week-end with gamecenter live this week-end is through the computer.



Everything works fine now! Go Pens Go! (PC)
PS3, still have to wait for new app...

I thought the free trial was supposed to end in January? Wondering why I'm still getting games.

Does anyone using Apple TV or Roku experience the issue directly after the game where you cannot begin a stream until later? With the PS3, I can't watch for the initial hour or so after the game. Was wondering if this is a system wide thing. (I realize you can watch using a computer or iPad right away)
