They show the games I want to watch now and tomorrow. I won't be inconvenienced by them for $50 when I can get better value for my money. They don't care about my needs, I don't care about theirs either.

Same here, just purchased gamecenter and the site wont even load up. The support chat that is to be on during games is not available and I cant get through via phone support.

my guess is it would be hard to get all the bugs out when they cant truly stress test the system with out all the people actually logging on... trust me im not happy but its like when they release big online video games this stuff happens... i guess i just dont freak out as much as some people... but i also pay for nhl center ice i like having both...

so the PS3 doesn't even have an app for the new season?

Edit: apparently so.

This type of crap is why people pay for pirated streams instead. Pathetic NHL, pathetic.

Yeah, I'm now relying on the CI free trial after the site won't even load. I should ask for a refund and get CI, or, maybe not give them my money at all, clearly they don't want it.

Fair enough, but I think it will be extremely infrequent that Nova Sport will show games you wanna watch. The NHL is marginal for them. I hated them when they were the only option for us to watch the NHL in Slovakia/Czech Rep. Very few games shown, always the same Eastern Conf. teams in rotation, bad announcers.

You mean today and tomorrow, no? I don't believe Nova Sport will be showing 1 game every day throughout the season. And even if they were, you typically have 5-10 games on an NHL gameday, so the GameCenter is still great value.

Guess, as annoying as this is, its a webserver problem. They are getting over loaded with everyone trying to watch at the same time. With the low cost it seems more people then ever have purchased it this year. There is never a good way to stress test your system like this without throwing it out there and adjusting.

Overreaction. I think if you forget about today, you're gonna love this service in the weeks and months to come.

I mean like 1 game every night till the end of January (for which the schedule is available), so most likely over the whole season. If you add also blackouts because of the ESPN America, you can be almost sure that most interesting games will be blocked.. not such a great value any more..

So I have to get Viaplay here in Sweden? Now I get it. 249skr/month is pretty steep for a unemployed person who only want to watch NHL.

Regular season might be OK (although now it's not only Nova Sport airing games but Fanda as well), but playoffs are gonna suck BIG time.
