Okay so I purchased unblock-us it says on the top corner of their homepage that my account is active, and that the device is setup correctly "it is using our dns"

So now do I just buy gamecentre live and the leaf game won't be blacked out?!

Or is there more I have to do?

Can't imagine giving the NHL money this year. Or next, really. But chacun son gut.

is anyone having luck with unblock-us and gamecenter at the same time. if so can u give me the link your watching game center off of.

as of now, nhl.com/ice/gamecenter or whatever doesnt work when i have my dns set up and working with unblock-us.

if i reset my dns i can watch the live feeds but have the blackouts.

just looking to get the games with no blackouts if anyone else has been succesfull with it.


thanks!

Mine wasn't working and I disabled the unblockus dns settings and it's now working on my Roku. Lost patience with the ipad app but didn't appear to be working.

well I saw people said I have to configure my router? I signed up for unblock-us and on their hompage it tells me my accounts active and my device is set up on their dns. So do i need to configure a my router for gamecentre? I'm on my laptop or can i go buy gamecentre and it'll by pass the blacked out games?

Also this quality is ****. Can you cancel and get your $50 back? Rather give it to Bell.

Did you configure the settings on whatever you're watching it on? I know you can change settings on the device as opposed to the router. I've only ever done router so I'm not sure if it's a software solution or what when you do it on your laptop.

That being said like i said above i couldn't get hte games to load when i had the settings in my router for unblockus. NHL may have found a way to block this.

Somebody mentioned those games are blacked out across Europe because somebody is carrying them on TV.

DIrwin, Did you change any settings on your computer? If you made the changes they wanted you to make on your computer, and you are only planning on watching from your computer, then you should be fine. You only need to change your router settings for certain devices.

If it says your device is configured and you are using their DNS then you are probably fine.

Having previously posted and sung NHL Game Center Live's praises I have logged in today and found Hawks vs. Kings and Flyers vs. Penguins both 'blacked out'.

Not happy as a UK subscriber, as we got no blackout in the previous x2 years.

Also having difficulting logging in to get the feed for the Winnipeg game - asking serious questions of the GCL support team, and after the protracted lockout seriously considering cancelling the damn thing and just getting highlights next day.

Then from a Tech standpoint you are set.

I can't speak to whether or not it gets you around the blackouts because I am in Tokyo and don't have to worry about blackouts. Having said that I use unblock-us for other reasons, so my gamecenter runs through it by default and I have never had any issues.


I am 90% sure you'll be fine.

okay so I have gamecentrelive, I'm able to watch the LAK/CHI game but it says the philly game is not available at gamecentrelive? so does this mean that unblock-us is not working for me :S

Try Unlock-Us, or the 'Stealthy' plugin for Chrome/Firefox.

EDIT: still send in a complaint though. That's ridiculously alienating for European fans.

Can't load anything in game center live. Also tried the 360 app and there I can't even log in without getting disconnected

Unblock-us used to have a week free trial. Not sure if they still do. Maybe you can give that a try.
