Not sure on this but I connected through a Germany VPN and it doesn't look like the other regions even have their pricing up yet. I ended up subscribing through Rogers rather than chance it not working or my account get suspended.

Planning on cutting cable, how's the quality of gamecentre?
Is it good looking on a big screen TV?
Don't care about blackouts, planning on following the red Wings.

The feeds are pretty much all HD but the speed of your internet will have a huge impact on the broadcast.

I signed up last year through the US region ... late in the season and was significantly cheaper than rogers. Had no issues with it working, though did require the US version of the app when watching on phone.

In Vancouver, I found that last season nearly all of the Canucks games except for nationally televised games were blacked out on my "free" Rogers plan unless I had a cable subscription. It made GCL useless for me since I only really watch the Canucks in season.

Did you find the same issue? Do really want to mess with getting a VPN set up.

I streamed almost every Wings game last season and it was excellent quality throughout

the only problem is there's a delay on the stream.....so make sure you're not using any apps on your phone that give updates

I'm going to wait another year.

Last year the Gamecenter changed in the middle of the season due to service supplier changers. It was very iffy.
Prior to that, I hated gamecenter's web browser stream as it was 30fps instead of 60fps. Their Android app was also limited to 30fps.
I actually had to get a hacked stream from Gamecenter to get 60fps on my computer.

The state of hockey viewing is very sad ever since Hockeystreams closed.

yes they do this. we used a vpn and the games showed up. it was weird though, on my roomates cell phone the games were not blacked out but if we logged in on a computer and streamed they would be blacked out. made no sense.

Last last year, I found the same thing on the occasional blacked out game. it streamed on my phone but not on my home network. I figured it was because my phone IP was showing as belonging to somewhere in Alberta instead of BC. I found that mobile IPs are weird sometimes.

I signed up through Germany last year and didn't have any issues. I paid $80 when Rogers was still charging $150. MLB didn't take over until midway through the year though, so they might get more strict on that this year...I just didn't want to take the chance after getting burned by hockeystreams (I had over 250 days left on my subscription when it got shut down).

They did start to make slight improvements to the web player towards the end of the season; they changed it so that the controls actually went away when in full screen...that's a win. The web player is far better than console for using the DVR so if I'm watching on delay I watch on my HTPC and if I'm watching live, I watch on my XBOX one for a little better quality. Their launch was also very rushed though and now they've had all summer to iron out the wrinkles...or at least they should have. I'm hopeful that it will be much improved from February.

Blackouts are certainly a pain but easily solved with DNS/VPN...though not necessarily for free.

The early bird deal is open until Oct 11, so I'll wait to see what the prices look like in other regions. Avoiding Rogers if possible would be an added bonus
