How come for me it looks like you can only access the chat rooms from the Vault? What good is that if I can't watch the same game I'm chatting about?

Or is the Chat feature some old thing they did away with?

Might have been asked and answered already, but with my android phone, am I able to watch game replays? I couldn't figure it out earlier tonight, but I love doing cardio at the gym and watching a hockey game during it. It keeps my mind off of how long I have been going, and how much longer I have been going.

It's not a major issue, but yesterday I was watching the Caps-Sabres game and noticed that the GameCenter Live is actually about 1 minute behind the real game-time. Somebody posted that the Sabres just scored and on GameCenter the faceoff prior to the goal hadn't even taken place yet. Then about a minute later Ennis scored.

That's not live and it sucks if you're browsing a GDT while watching the game

I'm having good success pausing the game for 60 seconds or so after hitting the buffer wheel on xbox. That seems to eliminate any buffering for the rest of the game

Did you try changing to Devils feed? Habs feed doesn't show up because its french.

Can anyone with DirectTV tell me the deal with NBC Sports? I read that it was supposed to be on basic cable but it says channel not subscribed despite having Center Ice and NHL Network subscribed.

Not a good start...
You aren't the only one having issues with their account. I had an account last year and they are supposed to auto-renew it, so I figured everything would be fine. But so far it hasn't worked. I can sometimes get what seems to be a 3 minutes trial of GCL and then it automatically logs me out and tells me to upgrade my account. I raised this issue with customer support a week ago and have sent 2 more emails since but all they have managed to do in that time is email some answers from their FAQs page to me. Nothing else.

One thing I've heard some other people have success with is cleaning your browsers cache and then logging in again. Might be worth you giving that a shot if you haven't already

NBC Sports Network is only tiered in Choice Ultimate and above. If you have an old Choice Xtra Classic package, it would also be in that programming tier.

why can't we watch the RDS feeds, because they're french? Seems like weird reasoning to me.

Also don't the habs have an english feed? What do all the english-speaking habs fans do?

I'm not getting any blackouts anymore, which is weird to say the least.

Anyone else (europeans) not getting blackouts anymore?

They listen to TSN Radio I assume. I think there is a TSN-Habs (on TV), not sure if they carry every game though.

I hope the NHL came to their senses and realized the European pay-TV providers are putting the games behind unrealistically expensive multi-channel packages that have nothing to do with hockey. That would serve them (the likes of Kabel Deutschland) right.

Same here. COL@SJ, BUF@WSH and MIN@STL were supposed to be blocked out but weren't.

Can confirm this as well, however... I'm not taking my hopes up, because tonight's NSH@PHX and tomorrow's PHI@NYR seem to be blacked out again..

Unbelievable...Try again - blackouts are here again after a few days of free video

"This game is not available due to blackout restrictions in your area.
For more information on blackouts, please read our FAQ".

Doh!

Ukraine, Europe.
