Hi, fellow UK viewer here. Been following this thread for a while hoping that the Premier Sports situation wouldn't lead to any blackouts.. Obviously now it has I'm pretty annoyed - same as you guys.

Premier Sports can go to hell. Poxy channel, hope they fold.
Which provider did you go with? I was looking at Astrill earlier which seemed quite good.

It said 4500 in their FAQ.

Click on system requirements and you'll see it.

Ok, talked to a representative just now. He told me there is a change in policy for my area and games shown on ESPN America will be blacked out for us. According to this guy it is the result of a new agreement with ESPN America.

He did agree that this has not been properly communicated with customers, but that it is the policy for this season. I suggest a big protest with both ESPN America and the NHL is in order.

I am extremely disappointed to see blackouts in Europe. The service lost half its value for me right now and come playoffs it's gonna be absolutely useless since every good game is gonna be on TV and I don't have one. I'll have to start paying for a VPN...://///

The only 3PM game available here in Czech Republic is Ottawa-Winnipeg. That sucks big time.

Does anyone have experience with hockeystreams.com? Is the quality good?

I just subscribed to NHL Center Ice last night in hopes that I would be able to view the Flyers vs Penguins game today. However, I do not see it listed anywhere. I live in Edmonton so I don't understand why it would be blacked out. This is all very confusing to me.

It's such BS, ESPN America doesn't even have hockey on in the UK - so it's blacking out games we couldn't watch even if want to..

Perfect. Watching on a 46-inch TV screen here. But even better is watching it via Apple TV (that little box that looks like a hockey puck and connects to your TV set). Also, streaming from the iPad or iPhone to the TV set (AirPlay) has worked great for me.

Basically, you get the same top quality of picture using all 3 methods -- the only difference between them is in terms of convenience. Watching via Apple TV is super-convenient, streaming from iPad/iPhone is moderately convenient, and manually connecting and disconnecting your laptop to/from your TV set every time, can be quite annoying, actually.

Is GCL working with Google Chrome? If I click on the Flyers/Pens Game there is a black screen and it is not loading, if I try with Firefox the video is loading and it says "The Game will begin soon".

Kings vs Hawks blacked out for me here. Anyone know a country without blackouts at all ? Would come in handy when searching for proxies.

Looks like I'll be using an illegal stream to view the game despite having paid a subscription to the NHL so that I could view it legally in HD. At least the Rangers game is being broadcast later on this afternoon.

I think they have some serious problems. No games are blacked out for me, and I'm watching ESPN America right now on my TV.

Please guys, let's all start mercilessly bombarding GameCenter Live tech support with complaints, and with requests to remove the blackouts, if we find out we cannot watch tonight's games. We must make it clear that this is not acceptable to us as paying customers! Or does the NHL prefer everyone to watch pirate streams instead?

Here is where you can submit your complaints:

http://gamecenter.nhl.com/nhlgc/help.htm

See the 3 options in the top right corner of your screen. Let's call them, chat with them, email them!

Downloaded a proxy but when I click on the steam I get: The selected broadcast is not available for this game, please select an alternate broadcast feed. Is that their way of saying it's not live yet?

I'm on the gamecenter app for the Apple tv and nothing is playing.

I'll let you know once I confirm.
I spoke to Rogers and they confirmed that you can buy Just NHL Center Ice. It's $49.99 for the season.

No that means there is no alternate feed. It's an NBC game.

Following their "logic", this game should be blacked out all over the planet Earth. I'm in Slovakia, the game is not shown on any TV channel accessible here, and I still can't watch? This is unacceptable, and we must let them know we're not gonna take it.

Send them your IP address and request for the blackout to be lifted. It reportedly worked in the past. I'm gonna do it for sure, if the game isn't streamed.

This. Extremely frustrating, it was the same way the entire last season for me. Also I could never user picture in picture, or the 4 game mosaic view last season.. just took me to the preview page whenever I tried to add a game.
