How can I watch Lightning games without cable or satellite

I want to get rid of cable.

How can I watch Lightning games via some other method?

If I buy internet based NHL package, I believe they block out home games.

I would be willing to pay some premium.

Do you live in Tampa? If not, get NHL Gamecenter. I use it every game, plus you get to watch any other game you want. $20/month or so. Unfortunately, local games are blacked out like you said.

You've got to teach me how to do the proxy deal. If I recall correctly, you said you would last season, but never did...

Should have reminded me! I most definitely forgot.

How do you watch them? PC/xbox/etc?

Sometimes my Mac, sometimes my PS4. PS4 more often than not, cause I can see it on the bigger TV.

If it's a local game, I can watch on my Mac if it's easier for you to tell me what to do

Well just for the record I'm going to try hockeystreams.com this season because there's no blackouts and they stream AHL/Q/etc..

but for the last 2 seasons using GCL I used a site called http://www.unblock-us.com/ it's 4.99 a month, there's free proxies out there but I wanted something reliable and easy to maintain. You pretty much just sign up and it it tells you exactly how to set it up on any device and you set it and forget it.

as far as free proxies go I believe there are plenty of free ones that you can add as a chrome extension, I've had issues with them not working well in the past though.

XBMC and with the Sportsdevil and Mashup apps. Look for NHL streams in Mashup live tabs 2000kbps+ quality, pretty much often as good as cable HD and free.

Sopcast and acestream are also good bets for HD quality.

I have used hockeystreams.com for years and I've had next to no problems with it so I recommend it. It's also cheaper than NHL Gamecenter if a remember correctly.

Also very useful if you're a netflix subscriber. Netflix has different menus for different countries, and this makes them all available to you.

You can use this service too. It's free from Google and just exists on your toolbar so you can turn it off or on as needed.
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...fbnlmeio?hl=en

Admittedly I haven't tried it for many things, but it worked for getting the BBC iPlayer, so why not GCL?

There's several services that can help you out for a premium (~$5/month) like Unotelly which offers an 8-day free trial without giving them a credit card. So if you are region blocked from multiple services, they will all work with little or no hassle and no headaches. NHL GameCenter, NFL GamePass, MLB.tv, Netflix and more than 250 others.

Not a plug and I don't get anything, just saying there are many ways to recover your Internet freedom.

Since you watch it on a console, I'd recommend hockeystreams which has a special price ending today. It will automatically make blackouts a thing of the past - no proxy or DNS changes required.

Seconding (thirding?) this. I used Unblock on my laptop, desktop, and XBox with no issues last season for my GCL sub.

Hockeystreams still has the 2013-2014 regular season and playoffs available to stream on demand.

Just watched a game the other day while working out in my home gym. So glad we traded Purcell.
