How is that not helpful? Slingbox lets you watch your TV on your iPhone. So... you can watch games on your iPhone.
It's a good idea, though a costly idea. The cool part is, I believe you can watch whatever is stored on your DVR as well, so let's say there is a 1pm Islander's game, and you can't watch it at that time, you dvr it, and then watch it on your iphone whenever you want to.
I did the Gamecenter thing because it was only $50 this year. Don't know how to do the proxy thingy though. I was out in LA in January, and it still said the Islanders were being blacked out in my market. I do love this Gamecenter thing though, I have it on my Roku as well, so watching out of market games on my 46" Samsung tv is pretty sweet. One time the Isles were playing at 1pm, so I watched that on cable (Optimum cable), but also have the Gamecenter app on my Nexus 7 tablet, so I was able to watch another game at the same time. Pretty sweet !
Optimum let's you watch tv on your iphone/ipad using their app, but you basically have to be home on wifi (basically near your router/cable box). So if a family has only one tv, and say the wife/significant other is watching the TV, and you wanna watch the Islander's game, that can be done. Sounds silly, but believe me, it's helped me numerous times with my GF (I only have a studio apartment, so only 1 main tv). As well as a terrible food poisoning incident I had Tuesday, still watched the Islanders/Capitals game from my.....ummm....library, lol. I'm hoping they get more sophisticated like Directv, I believe with their app, you can watch live tv on your iPhone, as well as whatever is stored on your DVR.
