Apparently the PS3 app will not be available until Feb 1st...
http://community.us.playstation.com/.../td-p/39304301

I don't understand this. The season could have started at any time. Why was the updated app not available back in October? What a major inconvenience and frankly a joke that 2 weeks of a shortened season are not even going to be usable over the PS3

Total joke...and yet we will pay the same price and miss catch up services with the first 2 weeks of the season

Not a good start on saying "thank you" to the fans at all

This is correct.

Just called GCL support to verify the ps3 app wouldn't be available today. The guy said a week or so but also indicated that the app isn't ready because they didn't want to develop in case the season was cancelled.... Wtf...

Here it just say that all games are blacked out. How does it look for other Europeans? On my Apple TV all games are just kind of dimmed.

ok so can someone clarify this for me with GameCenter...

So I am not in Pittsburgh market but I want to watch the pens games so I know if its on NBC itll be blacked out on Gamecenter which is fine but what other ones will games be blacked out? NBCSN? TSN? NHL-N? Im trying to see which stations are considered national braodcasts so I can see how many games I can see on this. I dont understand how CBC or NHLN are national broadcasts if a lot of people dont have those stations but I want to check and make sure. I am going to guess they all would be considered National but i hope im wrong.

Thanks

Please be advised that the PayPal payment method is not functional at this time, kindly use Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you,
NHL Support


So not looking good.
I understand that and I do have Visa debit, but tech support seemed oblivious to the issue when I called and the fact that the website offers no indication that PayPal is down is completely unacceptable for a multi billion dollar entity headed by a man making 8 million dollars a year. Why should I trust such an uncaring, incompetent organization with a credit card number. For all I know their https could be faulty too and a hacker could get my personal information. I shouldn't have to jump through all these hoops to find this out when they could easily take two minutes to put the digital equivalent to an out of order sign. **** is ****, and I'll be the first to call it out when I smell it.

I can only click on the preview, the "view" button is not active yet, except for the Flyers game, which is saying "waiting for feed"

NBCSN, NBC, NHL Network will be blacked out for you, any Canadian station like CBC or TSN doesn't affect you because I assume you live in the U.S.

Has anyone else noticed that the Android Gamecenter app always logs you out once you went back to your homescreen? This is soooo annoying. Any way to fix this?

Im going through the NHL vault on GameCenter right now and no videos will play for some reason. I had one playing but now none will. Hope this is just a glitch. Even when i got it to play it took forever and i know its not my internet connection.

This isnt a great first impression for me but ill wait and see if i can get it to work later on with this

update nvm its working now

That's what I did last season. Quality was great and rarely had any issues. The quality this season is supposed to be even better.

So Pittsburgh-Philly is blacked out for me on NHL Center Ice (i.e. it doesn't even show up on any of the CI channels). Why is that? Does CI even recognize NBC as a national broadcast for Canadians? I only get NBC Seattle which is showing LAK-CHI.

I was hoping to see bit of that game while mostly watching Sens-Jets.

How do I get the free trial for android? I have the app and it's telling me to upgrade to Live or Premium.

I have a couple of questions. Will me living in Finland be an issue. What games can I watch? How much does it cost when it's only 48 games?

If I use my paid GameCentre Live Account in conjunction with US-Unblock, will I be able to watch the CBC stream through GCL? I'm not even sure there is a stream but I'd way rather GCL quality than cbc.ca through a laptop.

Thanks
