Must have happened to both feeds then, as I was watching the Sharks'. Jesus Christ...

Just trying watch Ott-Buff game replay on PS3 with 5Mb connection. Game is unwatchable. Constant freezing, buffering and quality drop. No problem on PC or android in same network. Pathetic.

Looks like PS3 is especially vulnerable this season. NHL GameCenter Live is a service that comes in many formats, and the user experience may vary dramatically from platform to platform, and yes indeed, also in the same household. Then again, it may improve and recover one day later...

I've had this happen twice now. I think that if a game goes over the 2.5 hours allotted timeslot on tv, then the game freezes. This timing has happened when I'm watching games twice now, and both times it was right at the end of the game when the 2.5 hours is up, and if I keep trying to get in it keeps just showing the last 30ish seconds before the 2.5 hours is up, then after about 5 or 6 minutes they get fixed.

Anyone else experience this? Or have the game go over 2.5 hours and not freeze?

I watched the Jets/Panthers game last night on Xbox and my experience was relatively good. This was the best stream I've had all year, only 1 or 2 hiccups.

I'm kind of glad I've been getting off work late and that my team's games are all in a time zone behind. Any time I've started games from the beginning that are already in progress, I have little to no issues. But the few times I've tried watching games live, I still have problems with the quality changing about every 30 seconds, and stopping to buffer every few minutes, and this is all while getting about 22 mbps download speed on my PS3. Guess I'll just hold off about half an hour before I start watching any of the games.

I have a quick question that i cannot find the answer to anywhere. I just got Center Ice through Comcast, and there is a channel called "Around the League". It is a mosaic channel that shows multiple games at a time, but i cant figure out how to switch between feeds within the channel. Anyone know how to do this?

Happened to me as well a few nights back. They seemed to have fixed the issue as I experienced no crashes while watching highlights from yesterday's games.

after about 10 games watching dallas, i am happy to report zero problems! Unlike last year where i had problems being kicked out or general connecting problems (due to gamecenter, not my connection) so i am very happy this year. Also it's nice watching dallas vs the flyers because dallas have so few blackout games compared to the flyers where 1/4 games were blacked out.

You can't I don't think. It's just a screen with the different games all showing at once. You can't select specific ones from there.

Sometimes, depending which part of NHL.com I sign in on, it brings me back to that portion that I believe you're describing. In the upper right hand corner, it would say "Welcome Name, Go To GameCenter Live" with the link to continue. That's all I can think of.

Not sure if it's my tv or a poor wireless connection, but the video quality on replayed games looks horrible on my PS3? Is there a way to select the quality you're after or is it just best quality available?

Weird because I get nice resolution on 3000kb/s on my macbook through the same wireless. Wonder if it can be fixed through a network cable into the ps3?

Is there any way to watch individual goal highlights through Gamecentre, or have my subscription matter on the main nhl.com site? It feels pretty silly paying for a subscription and having to sit through a 30 second commercial every time I want to watch a highlight, but maybe I'm not in the right place.

edit: If it matters, I'm trying to watch an individual player's goal reel from a whole season, not clips from one game.

I had it last year and my app updated just fine. No errors. But is seems that they haven't gotten the caching problem fully fixed from last year. Since about every game, even if watched after it is over, has problems.

No game is blacked out for me minus the game on NHL network, and any Red Wings game due to them being available on FS-Detroit.

The streams are also smooth as a baby's behind for me on the PS3 app, computer, phone, etc.

No complaints whatsoever for me on the product.
