Absolutely. You're right, far more revenue from TV. But as a customer to pay and be blacked out makes no sense because the customer is losing and the business is gaining. Too lopsided, those relationships are never healthy. I know it's always been that way, but that philosophy in 2015 has become outdated. This is why people to turn to VPN's and other sources like hockeystreams. The more we talk about it, the more I've decided not to sign up for GCL. They have to stop with the blackouts, especially if they are charging so much.
All solid arguments. They are upfront about it though. They target the product at people that are fans of teams not in their area. I would imagine they would need to jack up the prices even higher if they didn't blackout because they would need to compensate for the TV revenue they lose. Maybe they should do that.... lol. Extra high priced tier for people who want local games. Either way Roger's needs money after their bonehead move of paying 5.2 billion for the rights.

How do you cancel the auto-renew within payapl? I did the Russian sign up for $75 last year.

I see it in my history, but not sure how to disabled the auto-renew.

Thanks in advance.

I called NHL.com billing at 1-800-559-2333 and told them I did not want to renew. Gave my login e-mail address and they found my account. They cancelled the charge and told me they set my account to not auto-renew. Whole process took less than a minute - even spoke to a N.A. call centre person! Very easy. Now to wait and see if I can get something better than the $180 B.S. of Rogers.

Was the auto billing for this coming season or was that your experience last season?

I don't think I got charged yet, not sure if I am on auto bill or not...

It was going to be charged on my card tomorrow for the 2015-16 season, according to the lady at NHL.com

I keep getting redirected to the Rogers page even though my DNS is set to the UK. Any ideas why? It wasn't doing this the other day.

For US full season is $131, for all international it is $119. I tired about 20 different countries and it seems that they have US price, Canada price (through Rogers) and International price for rest of the world. Unfortunately no $75 Russia deal for this year :(

Here's Russia's pricing:
$114.99 All Season
or $19.99 monthly (full access)

If you are interested in following one Team, from US it seems like a good deal:
$105.09 Single Team

Most people don't know or don't want to bother with VPNs and shady streams. If they did, GCL would cease to exist as it is designed to increase revenues and not replace revenues by incentivizing you to cut the cord.

Looks like HockeyStreams is the way to go this season. If anyone needs an invite, PM me. It might work for first couple of people (I really don't know how many referrals they'd allow).

Thankfully, I am getting a free gamecenter account from Rogers Internet package, so I won't be spending money on streaming this season.

Being in Australia is says $114 for the year. That is USD I am assuming? Or am I incorrect.

If so that is $161 AUD.

Would be nice if International users had the option for One team Package too, seems it is just for US viewers.
