I'm fairly certain there are a couple of posters on our board that are Australian who cheer for the Senators.
Anybody know how to catch a playoff game down under?
I am in Brisbane. Big Sens fan. Get GameCenter and stream it. I'm sure there will also
'free' streams but the quality is not flash. Gamecenter was only $130 US for the whole season and because you are not in North America there are no black-outs.
(I actually copy+pasted this guide from somewhere else on the internet and changed some of the wording so it makes more sense in this context. Hopefully it works for streaming cbc, but I can't really test it since I'm actually in Canada)
2.) After you've installed it there will be a nice little globe to the right of the address bar:
3.)Click the globe then Options. This will bring up the screen below. In profile name type something (You can call it Canada or something!).
4.) Get a proxy from here (http://www.proxy-list.org/en/index.php) and pick Canada for country, yes for SSL and Anonymous + Elite under type. Make sure you enter the captcha phrase after scrolling down (see screenshot) and then click enter. Look for sites with 100% uptime.
5.) After you have the ip address you need and port number enter it under HTTPS Proxy & Port then click save. Make sure your options look exactly like this screenshot (besides the ip address/port)
6.) Click on the globe at the top right and select Canada or whatever your called the profile name.
7.) To see if the proxy is working browse to https://www.google.com. If Google comes up, yay! Otherwise, you'll get the error message below and you'll need to try a different proxy
8.) Log on to cbc.ca/sports and try to open your game. If you get a technical error or it times out the proxy you're using isn't working. Try another. Other than that it may or may not work. I use this for US proxies when getting around MLB.tv restrictions, and they are much more stringent about illegal streaming options than any other sports league.
No, I'm not a girl. Stop asking!
Burgess has pretty much covered everything i would. Foxsports will cover one of the series but it will always be a us matchup and typically western conference. Im guessing they will show philly-pitt if they show the eastern conference. To that end i just checked the foxtel planner and there was no mention of any nhl gmaes being shown live, its all baseball but that could change closer to the date. Your only option is to stream until/if we make the cobference finals.at least.
As AP has said, you can stream through a proxy and watch at cbc.ca, personally i have only done that once, it was alright.
I pay for center ice online all season , i would just recommend getting a monthly subscription (about 20 bucks i think) and if you really want to watch in tv just output from your pc to tv. Quality isnt to bad.
Burgess if youre in brisbane do you get to watch the games live? Im always at work so i usually listen to the team 1200 broadcast. This time I am planning on staying well away from the internet and watching the games after work. Also wondering if you want to catchup for a game and have some brews pm me.
Sorry about spelling/punctuation i am.moving house and have no internet (apparently until thurs, telstra better not **** up) so i am on my phone
1. EA NHL games when I was a kid. There were no computer games for the games we played (Rugby League and Cricket) and the hockey game was more fun than Madden.
2. I lived in Canada for all of 2002 (Toronto then Ottawa). Watching hockey games at the pub, especially Toronto games, is a great way to meet people when you are living in a big city and don't know anybody.
3. I've been back to Canada every two years since then and all of my friends there love the Sens.
