Holy crap Rangers/Flyers full replay is available already just 10-15 minutes after the game completed! It was blacked out for me since it was on NHL-Network U.S.

Just on ipad, not on Roku

So I am watching the games on a new ipod touch (4g), and the app works well now, except for the blackouts of course. But I have a problem where it plays the game for literally 5 minutes in a really crappy/laggy resolution, before resolving itself into the normal smooth playback and semi-hd quality. Then it will switch in and out between these states throughout the game. Hugely annoying. And my internet connection is awesome. Anybody have any idea what's up with this, or how to fix it?

Does anyone know if TSN feeds aren't available on CI anymore? Tonight's Kings/Oilers game has only the Kings feed. I haven't seen one TSN feed since the season started.

Anyone with a Roku having trouble watching the west coast games? My dad gets on his Roku around 10:30 central time the last two nights, and it starts up to the next days games like it's already the next day. When he goes back a day to the current day and selects the games that are still going on out west, the pre-game title menu comes up and doesn't go away.

This is getting infuriating. GameCenter on PC says I'm blacked out of every game, but the iPad app works fine. Even the game replays are available on iPad but PC says they aren't available.

Worked perfectly fine for me last season. But do yourself a favor and get that little box of Apple TV, to run the NHL app directly from there -- it's even more amazing than AirPlay, and a lot more convenient.

No blackouts for full-length replays here. They are made available equally fast for all games, whether they were blacked out live or not.

This type of fluctuation happens from time to time. No way for you to fix it. Let's just hope it will occur infrequently.

Yes, and not only that game. The exciting Kings @ Oilers game likewise popped up on my iPad in a full-length replay only about 10-15 minutes after it was completed live. Wow! You really can't ask for more.

This service is getting better and better every day, and those who cancelled prematurely because of those initial hiccups, I think now have a reason to regret that.

Download the plug-in called "Stealthy" for Chrome. It will put an icon by your address bar at the top. Click the icon. It will turn green. Now go and open whatever game it is you want to watch. Once game loads, click the stealthy icon again which will shut it off. (Reason for shutting it off is that, admittedly things are slower when it is running, and you only need your IP hidden when opening the game)

If you leave the page you will need to do this process again.
I downloaded Stealthy. However, it is ridiculously slow. So slow the game won't load so I can turn it off and go back to my regularly fast internet. Anyone know of another free way to get around the stupid blackouts?

Stealthy works fine, but not in the default state. In Stealthy preferences, pick the 4th option (not the 3rd option that is activated by default). Posters here suggested countries like Brazil. Then make sure to reload the entire webpage, before selecting and trying to launch a game. Once the game starts, you can completely deactivate Stealthy again, to get your usual bandwidth.

I have never seen a blackout notice for a full-length replay, but proceeding in the same way with Stealthy might help. Also, make sure not to confuse a blackout notice with a "feed unavailable" notice. For some reason for the Rangers @ Flyers game, the Flyers feed was unavailable and when you want to watch the replay now, it loads the unavailable Flyers feed by default. You need to switch to the Rangers feed to watch the full-length replay.

I use it on my Nexus 7. The quality is fantastic and the frame rate is very smooth.

Only 2 problems:

- it returns to the schedule whenever a commercial break ends on a live game. I have to start the stream again to continue watching.

- it never saves my log in details so I need to sign in every time I open the app.

Those things never happen on iOS. Not the first time that "the same thing" is not quite the same thing on iOS and Android (the latter being buggier). PS: I own both types of devices, but prefer to watch on iOS, and even better via Apple TV, for obvious reasons.

Despite those two factors, Center Ice is a good product, and it's nice to watch hockey on a 55'' television. It's beautiful.

Also thinking of getting GameCenter Live whenever the CI free preview ends. How bad is the delay?
5 CI HD channels is way better than the 2 we have in Portland, OR.

Yes, HD hockey is a beautiful thing on a big screen.

I'd love to get out of our cable TV subscription, most of which is for live sports, but am nervous about GCL on the Xbox. If the solution to buffering problems is to pause the feed for many minutes, the application really isn't ready.

Anyone else want to describe their experiences with GCL on Xbox?

How fast Internet connection do you really need to "enjoy NHL GameCenter LIVE at its highest video quality"? The FAQ says 3 Mbps and I have 30 Mbps, yet the picture stutters if I don't set the quality to 800 Kbps.

Varies from user to user and from game to game. I've had no stuttering in recent days even at the highest quality setting.

I has more to do with how overloaded the servers are than you personal connection.

Their support site says before the end of the month, so I'm guessing Tuesday when the PS Store updates.

Same here. Not seeing any of the games. Just seeing the Directv logo.
