So far it seems to work well on my xbox just hoping I don't get screwed out of the whole reason why I bought it and that's watching shark games.

Now how did this work for the playoffs? Since versus carried most of them it seemed center ice didn't have the games...?
All of the playoffs are on NBC or NBCSports, so they will be blacked out.

Ya the PS3 is a joke, luckily I have my PC hooked up to my TV. Also for some reason I can not watch a game on my Android phone (Nexus 4). Whenever I go to play a game it tries to load for a few seconds and goes back to the play screen. Anyone else have this issue.

Pretty sure they don't start the feed until right before the game starts, especially not this early. As long as they don't show the Sharks games on your local FSNet feed you should be ok. Not sure what the local FSNet feed is for Oregon.

I've been watching 2-3 games a day with gamecenter. Xbox app is fantastic, iPad/iphone apps are pretty good also. Definitely glad I got it

I think it ran well. Glad I was able to see the home opener. It was running a little behind real time but close enough. Just cant refresh the GDT too often. Looking forward to using it on my phone in a pinch.

Ya, the blackout rules are pretty dumb. I've even heard of people in different regions of the country that were unable to get their teams channel because their local cable provider didn't offer it, but the game was still blacked out for them.

Also living in SoCal I get screwed on the blackouts, because they blackout both Ducks and Kings games on top of that they blackout the standard NBC/NBCSports and NHLN broadcasts. Found a few tricks to get around it though, so will give those a try when need be.

Could have something to do with arbitron type ratings?

Ugh. First year I've bought it and that really sucks. I'm going to be out during the day on saturday so I was hoping to watch it on delay.

Just saw that GCL is only $50 for this abbreviated season. Need to decide if I want to pay up and actually watch some belated games this year, since most of the live games are occurring while I'm asleep.

Anyone have any experience with using GCL from Europe? Any things to be aware of?

Thanks

if you have an xbox you may be in luck.

For some reason the xbox version of gamecenter will let me watch the full replays without the 48 hour wait rule. but it does black me out of the live game. Oh but tomorrow's is on NHL network? hmmm who knows.

Uggh, forget it. Just saw that you are auto-renewed for every season and the only way to get out of auto-renew is to call them. Email and all other forms of communication not acceptable.

That's the sort of chintzy-ass set-up that makes me hate the people who offer it. But then, it's the NHL owners and Bettman, why am I surprised?

Center ICE with DirecTV is the same way.

Does anyone know if there is a device/IP limit?

Can I use it on different computers in different locations?

Here's what I do to access GCL as a sharks fan in the BA.

I use stealthy, its an add-on for chrome or firefox. Here's the chrome link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/s...sions/stealthy

1 click to use, and then i sign into my nhl account, load up the game and then turn off stealthy for glorious HD.

The sign-in process usually takes the longest due to stealthy routing my traffic through another ip, but once the stream is going you can turn it off and use your standard internet connection.

Not sure if there is a limit. I don't think there is a limit on PCs you can watch it on, but they may only let you link your account to one PS3 or one XBOX, and you can only watch it on one device at a time.

You mean simultaneously? Or just in total? I haven't run into any limit of the total number of devices but I think at the most I've used 4 in a season.

Both haha. Total is more important though. I was wondering if it's possible to watch on a tablet, computer and XBox at the same time.
