(In Canada) it looks like the game is blacked out on my NHLCI (through Telus) because they think that NBC has Pit/Phil and Bos/NYR --but, of course, they only have the first one. Anyone else seeing this?

I'm in Canada and on GameCenter Live. Bruins game is listed on there and not blacked out.

Sounds like someone goofed up in the TV scheduling/blackout rules department for Canada. I know its not listed on Rogers in ATLCan on the NHLCI channels too.

I'm seeing it too, channel 1451. Bell has the free preview through Jan-31 and I confirmed with their csr yesterday that the season package will be $50. Seems the lockout has put money back in my pocket as well.

Just found out the Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland are the only countries not being able to get Game Center Live... Even though it was available last year... Great way of ruining my evening.
Just tried changing my account info to my 2nd address, which is in Germany. Didn't work for me either. Any other things I could try?

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



Free preview until January 31st.

Hey guys, I'm trying to watch the Penguins/Flyers game on gamecenter, and it's telling me the game is not available in my region. Anyone know if this is this because the game is on NBC?

Does this mean all NBC games will be unavailable on gamecenter? If so I'll be fairly annoyed

I can browse games, but I'm getting 'Your game will start shortly' for the Jets/Sens game and 'unavaliable in your region' for the Penguins/Flyers game...

I don't see it either. NHL Network is showing this game, however I think it is US only so we may be screwed.

Hi Robert, it's standard for all NBC games to be blacked out on GCL?

Good point. I just realized that the game I was all excited about watching tonight on my XBOX is blacked out anyway because it's a New York team : (

I don't have cable. I could probably try to use a proxy IP from outside the area I guess.

Does Gamecenter Live renew every season? And how much is a full season?
I want to get it so I can watch games on my Xbox, but I'm not sure if its worth it. The free version still has highlights and I think some NHL on the Fly stuff.

just meant it's pretty standard for games not being broadcast in your area to be blacked out. fox used to do this with saturday baseball games.

Anything that's nationally televised (NBC, NBC Sports, NHL Network) or is broadcast in your regional network is blacked out.

Example: You live near Syracuse like me- All Sabres, Isles, Devil Rangers, all NHL Network, NBC SN and NBC games are blacked out. This means all of the playoff games will be blacked out.

Hope this helps.

Does Gamecenter Live renew every year? How much does it cost on a full season ? I have an Xbox and I'm considering purchasing the package so I can watch live games. I'm just concerned at the price for a full season. I'm 15 so it's obviously hard for me to get huge amounts of money, and I want to know if its worth the investment. The free version of the app isn't bad, as you get highlights and I'm pretty sure some NHL on the Fly stuff.

Put a reminder on your phone calendar to cancel at the end of the season so it does not renew. It is a very shady practice that many companies use.
