I can't confirm any bull**** 48-hour NHL policy here. All NHL games are available in full-length replays here within a few hours after completion, even those that were (unjustifiably) blacked out live.

If you actually see 48 hours anywhere, complain with GCL tech support, and give them hell. It's completely unacceptable.

Not on PC. Every game that is shown on Nova Sport is blacked out. Apart from CHI@LA on opening night ESPN America games aren't blacked out for me.

Set up my Center Ice account yesterday. My 3rd year of Center Ice, after 3 previous years with Game Center Live.

I hope they'll provide all of the games in HD some day, as I don't see myself moving back to the NY market any time soon.

I've noticed a lot of hiccups, not just with NBC. Okay, NBC was one. It blacked out most of the third after switching to Pens/Flyers. One of the Caps games started freezing like crazy on Center Ice, in an irritating 10 minute span.Dunno what channel Wings/Stars were on, also had whatever Center Ice sent, and they started freezing during the player intros.

I miss the majority of games because I work in the evenings (and being in the Pacific Time Zone that means I'm usually starting work at the puck drop of the eastern games and missing every minute of action in a given night). So then I come home to watch my team's games and I'm not allowed to for some godforsaken reason. I don't even know what their rationale is there.
If I recall, they use to reason blackouts were to support local feeds, usually at their behest. For instance, RDS wants exclusivity on Hab games for revenue purposes. It's an annoying and anarchic system that should be done away with by now but, I doubt said local networks allow that to happen any time soon.

Anywho, question. You can watch replays of games once they're over? Example, say I want to watch the Pens/Flyers game that aired Jan. 19th. Possible? For the 360, just to note.

How long does it usually take for games to become available to watch live for GCL? Looking to watch the Pens-Leafs game, but it keeps saying "Content Unavailable", with puck drop in about 10 minutes.

Don't know what that error message means but usually if everything's working properly it says "waiting for feed" or "game will begin soon" if it's just a few mins away.

Normally with center ice I'll record a game and watch the first 2 periods live and finish the 3rd period in the morning before work. Would game center allow me to do this less than 8 hours after the game ends?

Also internationally are playoffs live on gamecenter? I'll be traveling out of the country and this could benefit me more than the tv version.

Anyone else having issues watching the games with Stealthy activated? My feed becomes unwatchable with constant buffering and it seems my whole browser slows down. Any other programs out there that don't have this issue?

For me on Apple TV, full-length replays show up within 2-4 hours from the game's completion, so the answer should be yes.

Yes. But watch out for ***damn blackouts, which seem to be out-of-control and totally unpredictable this season.

Just switch off Stealthy after your game launches. Then you should be fine. Stealthy (I hear) only needs to run when you are launching the stream, not watching it.

I just bought it but I can't do nothing. When I press watch it still says upgrade now. Is there a delay between the purchase and the activation of your account

Just activated my NHL center ice through Rogers in New Brunswick. I simply complained that all of the competitors were offering it for $49 for the season, and they matched it.

I'm pretty sure that's the case, I did the same thing a few days ago and it took until the end of the day for me to get to watch games.

oh, I see now. Usually, it says there that it's shown on NBC, but this time they say it's on local TV that's why I found it weird

Leafs/Penguins game has been buffering for 5 solid minutes. Restarted, same thing. This is an awful service.

I switched the feed to the "away team" and it's MUCH better but still buffers
