Good Sites to Stream OHL Games?

I live in the States nowhere near the Canadian border, so where would be some good sites to stream OHL games? Thanks!

Ohl Livestream is the best it's going to get for you. But it's usually very reliable and has a good feed.

Does anyone know why Saginaw's games aren't available? I've seen their games available for live games, but archived games aren't showing up.

What's the video quality like anyway? Poor, OK, Good, or Excellent.

Well it depends on what your definition of poor, ok, good, and excellent are. I have got the OHL livestream for about 30 games I would say and the video quality to me is OK. Not as good as a non HD TV station you can see the game but it is hard to see the puck on the screen.

It also depends on the team and venue. The US teams don't broadcast their games so the quality is poorer than average. Some barns are bright and the broadcast is crisp and clear. Some places either are dark or televise dark.

I saw this site once and was wondering as well. Because 99.99 for the entire year would be a fantastic deal for what you get. Even if the stream qualities weren't that great, the price would be ok for all the leagues involved.

like Sudbury telecast, if it wasn't for the ice surface and players skating you wouldn't know if it was a hockey game or a concert going on.

I decided to try it out for tonight's game since Owen Sound is in the States and not on OHL package. For as long as they don't get shutdown tonight I'll be happy

looks a lot more decent that the OHL streaming.

Let me know how the quality is. I thought about getting it because 100 dollars is not terrible if I can watch all the road games.

well it depends how your going to view it...

on your computer the quality is nice, I wouldn't have a problem buying it again. I would give it a 7.5 - 8 / 10. I was impressed with the fact that there was no lag. I do have a very fast connection.

I took a HDMI cable and plugged it into a 50" DLP from the laptop. Maybe the quality would be better on LED TVs but the quality was reduced quite a bit on the TV. I expected that because of the projection of a DLP version of TV I have. I don't like to watch TV on a computer so I rather pay $30/month for the OHL package. (super sports package). Quality was like 5/10.

I'd say buy 1 game to experience it first, because the Website says the quality also depends on your connection speed. Instead of lagging, they reduce the quality.There's rumors out there of legal issues so they could be shut down, so you could lose your money.

Another thing I saw... was a "Freeze/Unfreeze" account option. I didn't look into it because I was only buying 1 day pass. You should look into that too because it might mean that you don't have to use up all your days in sequence. So if you have only 30 road games you want to watch you might get away with just buying a 30 days purchase. But I don't really know what that option is. I attached a screen shot of it.

Ok thanks Bidzey, I might give it a one day try like you suggested. I like watching on the TV but if the quality is better I will use my computer.

Side note, looks like the Attack are the real deal this year, you have a lot to look forward too.

Actually, the feeds from Saginaw and Plymouth are very good. I live in Ohio and I have to use OHL Livestream for any OHL game. I can tell you the worst feeds aren't from Erie, Saginaw, or Plymouth. The Soo Greyhounds have by far the worst feed on OHL Livestream...absolutely horrible. The feed from the Missy Steelheads isn't all that great either. Kitchener has been disappointing also. Even though they use the Rogers tv/TV Cogeco feeds, it can be blurry for some feeds. Kitchener being one of them and I don't know why. Because I love watching them. I emailed OHLsupport about it and they don't seem to care, so so I guess they will never get TV quality.
