You can set it so it doesn't give away the scores so it's perfect for if you can't make it home by 7 but want to watch the game without spoiling the ending. I find with the recent upgrade in the cable lines the picture quality is just below HD, but miles better than standard def. (not sure if the new lines on the street effect Internet speed, but whatever)Now after talking to many Comcast customer service reps I found out that the amount of HD games availible on center ice varies from town to town depending on the lines on the street . Ours are now up to date so we get like 4 or 5 games in hd a night. But the fact that gamecenter let's me watch the game in it's entirety or in condensed form keeps me from switching. Oh and there's a three year archive and classic games dating back to the 60's . Hope that helps.
Please share this tidbit... This always ruins Hawks games for me. That and ScoreMobile sending me alerts every time Quenneville snarls at a ref.

You can hide the scores but the winning team is highlighted still. Very stupid! If you use the Vault (which comes with GCL) then you can there is no highlighting.

Yes, please. Share how to hide the scores. It's annoying.

edit: Never mind! I swear I checked the options 4 times and didn't see anything. Now, it's right there staring me in the face. Duh.

To answer my own question I emailed game center customer service about it and they responded:

You will be able to link your GameCenter Live to any 5 devices so yes you can do it at a friends house but you can only log into on device at a time.

Sitting on my couch waiting for the game to start and took a second to double check my settings on my gamecenterlive ps3 app. 1.) go to account settings and to off the "show scores" 2.) I then went back to the calendar and no teams were highlighted, so in no way would the viewing experience be spoiled if were to watch the game after it was completed .3.) the main complaint that I do have is no pre-game show and even worse is that "intermission" screen. I mean Jesus! I can see distinguishing the pre-game show as separate programming but the intermission is a part of the freaking game IMO . Either way until Comcast gives all center ice games in hd I'm sticking with this. There is no worse pic quality than msg+ in standard def.

This! It is a small complaint, but even for archived games you have to manually fast forward through the "intermission" screen. It is really my major complaint. It's a simple algorithm to skip that screen. Right now to skip it I have to download the stream to MythTV and use MythTV's screen skipping feature. Otherwise I absolutely LOVE GameCenter Live. It will only get better - for example, Microsoft Silverlight 5 has added some seriously amazing playback features built-in that competitors will take advantage of, which will in turn force NeuLion to add these features to their Adobe Flash Player or switch to Silverlight.

My other complaint, which was also briefly touched in this thread, is how they upgrade the Android phone app. It's totally stupid.

You know, before "hiding the score" was even mentioned on these boards I always wondered why we would want to hide the score (this was before I started to frequently use NHL GCL).

Then last year, when I would watch Isles games after they had completed I would take 1 hand to hide the scores at the top, squint my eyes, and use the other hand to control the mouse and hope that I could select the Isles game without reading the score. My wife caught me doing this several times and thought I was a complete moron!!!

So last night I used the "Scores - Off" mode and it was PERFECT!!!

Thanks to whomever mentioned it here!!!
