    I've been religiously turning to bilasports nhl link within the reddit NHL streams. It can get pixelated now and then, but it's been reliable. I just miss recording the game and watching it an hour or so into it.

        It's pretty beta right now.

        Got burned today when I brought up the game just before 1PM PST, and instead of the stream starting at the beginning of the broadcast, like it has done by default all year, it joined the live post-game where Clement immediately said something that spoiled it for me before I could stop it.

        The stream used to start at the moment when the on-ice crew started. These last few have started with lengthy dead air, then the entire pre-game show. I suppose that's nice if you want to watch it, but it makes it a bit tedious to find the spot on the timeline when the puck drops.

        The bit that automatically skips the commercials only does so during periods. It takes a few seconds but it works pretty reliably. It doesn't skip through the intermissions though.

        Who knows how much this will change before next season. It should wind up making things better overall but they have made some bone-headed management decisions in the past, so it is hard to say.

          I just watched the Isles Flyers game last night ... Iíve been a bit behind in my viewing ... I gotta say WOW ... the broadcast looked the best it has ever looked on the desktop ... no blurry no stuttering ... CRYSTAL CLEAR ... I donít think it auto skipped the commercials for me .

          When I start a game the night itís being played I always expect it to join live in progress even though itís not supposed to .... so I purposely avoid looking at the screen and muting it and then I automatically rewind it to the beginning .

          Even though Iíve got my settings to hide scores, on the desktop, it ALWAYS come up with the scores shown ... so once again when I go to play the game the night itís being played I kinda look away and the first thing I do is toggle the hide scores selector again.

          Iíve complained to them about this bug which I would guess is a SIMPLE fix ... and they havenít fixed it for two years ... FRUSTRATING!

            What size screen are you watching on? I've got a Mac Mini hooked up to a 65" TV, which makes even small glitches pretty obvious.

            Individual frames are clear, it's just that when the camera is moving fast the jump from one frame to the next is noticeable. I am not sure I buy their 60fps claim.

            Surprised to hear you are having issues with having to redo the setting to hide the scores. They made that setting persistent a long time ago and it still works for me. Makes me wonder if something is happening with cookies for you.

              Iím not watching on a big screen could be why it looks so good and smooth .... in running a windows 10 desktop on a 24 inch screen with HDMI.

              Ok Iíll check and see whatís up with my
              Cookies ....

              Wonder if itís a windows bug as you say you are on Mac and have no problems ....

              Whenever I watch on my
              iPad or on the shield I donít have the problem with the scores showing .... only on my damn desktop which has ruined my viewing entertainment numerous times over the past several years lol

                Starting to wonder if the stutter is browser related. Even though I used Chrome for everything else, for games I'd been using Firefox for a long time as Chrome could be weird with its built-in Flash.

                With the Flash requirement gone I finally got around to watching a couple of games on Chrome and they seemed smoother.

                    3 out of market no cable - easily the best choice is NHL Gamecentre Live app. Great quality feeds, watch wherever whenever on whatever you want ... replays are automatically archived for watching at a later date ... blackouts are rarely a problem and usually can be fixed with a VPN

                    You could watch on reddit I suppose but itís kinda flakey ... I watch enough flyers that I can justify paying what it costs here in Canada - $200 Canadian including taxes

                      If I get NHL.com I'm worried about the VPN being detected and then I'll be stuck not being able to see any NJ, NYR, NYI or home PHI games.

                      My YouTube TV subscription sees that I'm on a VPN and it won't let me watch TV.
