Your best option is probably to stream the games over the internet.

You have a couple of choices, you could pay $59.99 and get NHL gamecenter for the rest of the season. I had an account last year and the streams were almost always top notch quality.

Or you can go the free route and use some of the sports streaming websites out there. IMO, the best ones are Vip Sports Box and Atdhe.eu

However, the quality and reliability of those streams is often a crap shoot.

I'm assuming that you can use Game center live in Hong Kong. I have It and I'm happy with it. Might be pricey in you are in NA but over the other side of the world its worth it. I used pirate streams and Game center is 1000 x better. And if you get it now you can have the extras now, eg Watch games whenever you like.

I don't think you get playoff games though.

While we're on this topic, do you guys know how I could watch Team Canada hockey during the 2014 Olympics in Singapore? I'm pretty sure it's not a popular sport there, so they won't be showing it on their national television. Just realised I'm going to be on exchange when the Olympics are on...

You might get lucky and maybe CTV ( I believe they have the broadcasting rights) will stream the Team Canada games on their website.

Will I be able to watch it outside of Canada though?

And CBC has the broadcasting rights for 2014 and 2016. Apparently they might broadcast some things on TSN and Sportsnet though.

I have no idea, I just assumed that wouldn't be a problem.

Seems like it would be a pretty stupid mistake by the NHL to restrict gamecenter to North America, considering how they always pride themselves on trying to grow their global brand.

Yea, good question. I know CBC has streamed some of their Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts for free before, not sure if they are still doing it.

If so, you could always give it a test run the next time you are outside of the country.

I don't know your background, but if you're a UBC student/alum or know somebody who is one, you can use their online login to access the UBC VPN, which gives you a Canadian IP address.

Used it to great success in circumventing the Great Firewall of China when I was on vacation.

Witopia is a great VPN.

NHL centerice is available over seas and I think you can do game by game. No need for a VPN.

The illegal streams are always crap. Dont understand why people cant fork out a measly $60 to watch proper streams that dont lag, cut out etc.

Not a 100% sure, but I think they broadcast it on delay.
I was able to watch the 1994 Olympics figure skating competition in Taiwan on network TV all those years ago.
I am pretty sure Singapore do the same.

If not, you probably have to do what the other posters tells you.

Edit:
Just checked.
Probably not.
The biggest broadcaster in Singapore is Mediacorp, and they don't seem to cover the Winter Olympics.

But...
The television carrier might have carry one of the stations that do have the broadcast.
Hopefully you get lucky.

do not get hockeystreams, the streams buffer horribly and the quality of the feeds vary significantly

just sign up for gamecenter, it's only 50 bucks and will give you reliable access to any feed on any device...also being in hong kong you will avoid any blackout restrictions and won't need a vpn

i was in hong kong for 2 weeks in 2011 during the playoffs, missed the 1st round and 2nd round. I tried to find a local pub that would broadcast NHL playoffs games, and I couldn't find any. (I am originally from Hong Kong ) CBC, NBC stream didn't work because they restricted to viewers in North America only. Some nice guy from this board shared his NHL Live account to me so I could watch the game. Or you can try justin.tv but the quality will be average but better than nothing.

There should be a few Canadian bars in LKF that air live games. I think one of them was called the "Keg".

If you dont care about watching them live due to time zones or whatever, there is also private torrent tracker options uploaded in very nice quality.

So are you guys sure I could watch the playoffs using nhl gamecenter in hong kong? does the package even includes playoffs? I have watch a few video review about the app and nobody seems to mention whether it included playoffs.

Thanks again!

When I was in Hong Kong in 2010...
They had it on cable...
But it was on delay.
The Canucks were already out...
And I watched it the next day.

Bar might be your best option...
Although it will be either in the wee mornings...
Or the early mornings...
Too early for drinks...
Unless you can afford rehab...

Good luck.
