    Oh yeah, that's a given with either one. I assumed hattrix's problem was that he's living out of market, not that he cut the chord. Either way, r/nhlstreams should get the job done for blacked out games.

    I'm surprised that Reddit hasn't been sued out of existence given the number of streaming links for pretty much any sporting event in the world on there

    Not that I'm complaining mind you....

    Using NHL.tv is just like using a DVR. You can watch the game whenever you want, live or recorded. The only difference is that they record it, not you. You can pause, jump back, jump ahead, etc.

    Since I'm on the west coast, most Flyers home games start at 4PM my time, and I want to watch later. So the DVR-like functionality is perfect for me.

    The archive on these kind of services can be a nice feature too. You could possibly watch past games that happened before you were a customer. For NHL.tv it looks like a couple of years is it. Not sure why they limit it so much.

I get MSG as part of my cable (Optimum) so I see all NYR NJD, and NYI home games.
    If you need to DVR and center ice gives you actual tv channels to dvr then you probably need to stick with that. NHLTV doesn't integrate into channels in any way. You log in with a username and password on a computer or phone and use a device to cast it to a tv. I don't think there would be any way to dvr it.

    Have been using NHL.tv (formerly gamecenterlive) for 7-8 years now. It has definitely gotten better. The experiments with commercials seem to have failed so you rarely see them. The streams are less flaky than they used to be. They still use a flash based player if you are using a computer and a browser. They really need to move to HTML5 and things should be a bit better still. The mobile app is a native player (no flash) and is much better, but I hardly ever want to watch on a small screen.

    I was concerned that Roger's here had exclusivity but it doesn't appear so.

    No problem. NHLTV has a pretty decent amount of info. Looks like xbox and ps4 have nhl apps for tv, as well as chromecast and amazonfiresticks and stuff.

    I don't know how different it might be in Canada but NHLTV is totally independent of cable in the US. I use NHLTV and the only ways I even know of to access it are my phone and my computer. My TV is connected to my computer via an HDMI cable and essentially functions as a giant computer monitor when using NHLTV.

    I think PS4 and Xbox might also be used to run NHLTV through your TV, but not sure about that.
