I bought Center Ice this year and can't wait. 49.99 is a pretty reasonable price, I know a lot of people were saying it should be free do to the lockout but I just didn't see that happening.

 

Me being a die hard Wings fan and my wife a huge Bruins fan, we love our Center Ice  :clap:

 

 

So you're the reason I couldn't get the GOWINGS license plate!

awesome thank you. I do have a question. I'm dumb when it comes to the blackout rules and all of that but per the zip code lookup only thing blacked out should be the dallas games...so why is it when I have the fox sports channels i never get any wings games on FSD. they are always blacked out....and since they are blacked out there does that mean on this game center they will be blacked out as well?

What that means is that the only team for which you will be blacked out of every game on GameCenter Live is the Dallas Stars, since you are in their regional sports network's market (FS Southwest).  As for the television, if you subscribe to all of the Fox Sports channels, you get those channels, but they have already arranged for Center Ice to be the means by which the NHL games are distributed out of the regional markets, so the only way you will be able to watch FSD broadcasts of Red Wings games on TV is if you get Center Ice, that essentially "unlocks" the out of market hockey games on the RSNs, and also adds a dedicated channel for each game when it is being aired.

Hey guys, those of you with previous NHL Gamecentre Live subscriptions were your credit cards charged already? I am trying to figure out if I have paid already because last year I put the fee on a friends card (permission permitting of course) and paid them. And I haven't touched my billing info from last year so I assume it rolled over and charged that same credit card. Help is appreciated!


The email they sent me said they would charge it on 1/22.

works every time

Is anyone else's NHL Gamecenter painfully slow to load?

I won't even buy beer if it has any NHL logo on it this year. The lockout has me sour. I'm excited to see the Wings play again but I feel betrayed by the league still.

Mine was, but NYI game is working very well for me right now- the quality is better than any illegal stream I've seen.

 

I cannot get PIP to work though. However, using the pop-up player I can acheive the same effect.

I can't get it to load on my xbox, ipad, or iphone. It's just down for me.

If the Wings play like they did last night against Columbus and Dallas I'll probably just cancel my Gamecenter and save myself $50 and an aneurysm.

GameCenter was a complete disaster last night, just like the Wings game.

Wow, very weird, but that is the same with the wife and myself. However, I am stuck in Bruins territory so we always have the B's on.

 

I was thinking about GCL, but the price and value don't work for me. $50 isn't bad, but NHL network games being blacked out!?! That is beyond dumb. The Wings are on nationally/NHL network too often for GCL to make sense for me.

GameCenter was a complete disaster last night, just like the Wings game.

I called them up last night because the wings game was blacked out for me and I'm in Austin Texas. The only games that should be blacked out per the zip look up is of course dallas. When I talked to the folks for the gamecenter support they said my IP was showing that I was in the Detroit area for some reason so they did an IP override and now I should be fine with the games.

I was in Minnesota and blacked out of the Pens/Flyers game.  Wasn't on TV locally just the Kings game.  Then gamecenter wouldn't even load games in the afternoon.  Today I've randomly gotten incorrect blackout notifications that go away on refresh.  They are #$%^ing a lot of stuff up.

The Flyers game was on NBC.com and thus blacked out everywhere in the US.

No idea, but NBC has been showing their games online for a few years.

Despite the initial dramas on saturday night i'm loving it. HD quality on the Xbox. Then if you know how to get around blackout restrictions then it's all the more awesome. Who needs Cable TV.

If you have an ipad and GCL and are in a blackout area, hotspot VPN APP found on http://m.hotspotshie.../more-info.html allows you to watch the Wings games on GCL. This is my first time trying it and it works flawlessly for me. It's a free app, but I'm sure Dow. The road you'll have to pay for it at some point. Enjoy.

I signed up for NHL Vault only as I rarely am able to watch games live and supposedly can watch them 24 hours later or 48 hours later if blacked out.

 

So as of this posting time the current 2013 season games are not in the NHL Vault to watch.  I called the support line this morning to inquire about this and they told me that they are having a significant amount of problems with getting the content all set up for this season and also that the blackout rules have apparently changed and they are trying to sort them out, hopefully by the end of the week.
