I paid 100 bucks for the MLB one last year. You get twice as many games. GCL is way overpriced.

The NHL vault was advertised and sold to include next day replays,
currently it doesn't -
therefore there are issues of trading standards or the the North American equivalent and unless the customer service response is acceptable and or the situation quickly resolved people would be in their right to demand a refund and or report the NHL to the authorities on claims of a mis sold product.

To me, Vault is like GCL 'lite' as it allows full games to be viewed, just not live, therefore is makes perfect sense for those who just can't watch that many live games.

Also, wouldn't it be misrepresentation to advertise and sell a service that they did not intend to honour? As mentioned, Vault is still being advertised as an opportunity to watch 'yesterday's' full game replays. If it were simply a copy and paste error it would have been taken down long ago...

I agree that playoffs should be part of GCL and this shouldn't be an issue. You wouldn't have to do this but if they do blackout live streaming of playoffs then this is an option.

And then there is the case of people who only care about the playoffs and not the regular season. Paying VPN fees or $5/month is a lot cheaper than the cost of GCL.

It could simply be the failure to update last year's texts. No copy/paste necessary. Can be simply outdated text.

Not much of an issue during the regular season, I don't think they're showing that many games live, but might be annoying during the playoffs. You can work around blackouts on the PC easily but I assume it's more difficult if you want to use one of the apps.
Yeah, true, just saw that. Kind of dumb, because I have cable and do have Sky, but the package doesn't include ESPN America. To get ESPN America, I would have to buy a retarted Kabel Deutschland PLATINUM SUPER HEAVYWEIGHT package that includes 10283 channels from Saudi-Arabia and Turkey for 39 euros a month. I didn't check their schedule yet, but hopefully they don't show many Rangers games.

anyone else having issues with GCL at NHL.com today? I don't understand why it would black me out of both games but let me watch them on my ipad?

I paid 200 bucks to watch 16 Giants games (NFL GamePass). I did watch the RedZone and now the playoff games, but basically I bought it to watch the Giants. So the NHL package is still manageable, IMO.

That nonsense about 24-48 hours is legacy stuff from their site, no relation to reality. It's what they're covering their arses with, in case someone like you complains.

...

Wow, what a liar you are. Does the GCL staff pay you for the BS you post here?

I had 3 games blacked out the opening night: LAK-CHI, PIT-PHI and TBL-WAS.
Now, roughly 44 hours after two of those games are finished, none of these games is available for me.

Again, you seem not to understand the difference between the past and the present.
Last year, there were no blackouts in Europe, that's why you could watch PO games live on GCL.
This year, there are blackouts in Europe, that's why you will not be able to watch PO games live on GCL in some European countries.

Anyone know how to get the PiP or mosaic view to work? I click on the box and it says click on the score strip. When I do I just end up at the game that I click on. This even happens if I click quickly and the box is still blue on the frame.

Well basically yeah. You can cancel within 5 days of registration and get a full refund.

For me, as a returning customer, the GCL is free of charge until they attempt to charge the credit card on February 2nd. So basically I can watch it till Feb. 2nd for free and then they will charge the card. So in theory I could update my credit card information with false information and still watch till Feb. 2nd and then they would shut it down, because the credit card couldn't be chardged.

Tired of this bull****, guys, leaving this thread. If you can't understand the difference between your specific situation, and the general rules, I can't help you. No replays are blacked out for me, and neither should they be blacked out for you or anyone else. If they are, it's a mistake. Complain with GCL tech support. Bye.

Is it driving anyone else nuts that when you click another live game- it goes to the written description instead of the video feed?

I hate that. I think its because the pip and mosiac don't work either so the switching of games thru video feed is not as needed.

Holy ****, is this still screwed up from Saturday?
I couldnt watch anything saturday, and sunday stuff wasnt working properly(mosaic, PIP, etc) and now I cant tune into the boston game and couldnt get the tampa game.
The live support hasn't been avaliable since Saturday, and I spent 35min on hold on the phone with no luck.

Its been completely non-functional for me since opening game. I got a few games Sunday but they were glitch and stuttery, I ended up watching pirated streams.

It's been working perfectly for me over the weekend and today. Maybe they're having service issues with other countries?

The NHL.com website is also crashing. I can't believe these idiots host the site and Gamecenter on the same server.
