FWIW the guy I spoke to on the phone said "beginning of February, hopefully sooner."

I bought this poo poo expressly because my PS3 is connected to my TV. My computers are in the other room, and my lappy is work, so I can't put it on that.

So my option is now to either watch on the computer in the hone office or on my iphone.

What the poo poo were these clownshoes doing during the lockout?

I just called 'em and asked for specifics. They claimed it is done and finished, it's just Sony's being slow in putting it up on the store. I buy that because Apple does the same poo poo, and I'm willing to bet NHL waited until the last possible loving moment to give it to them.

I just watched half of the Sabres game on Gamecenter on my iPhone. Was that game supposed to be blacked out, and I was only able to watch it by mistake? Or was I allowed to watch it due to the NHL's partnership with Verizon?

I bought GCL for the first time this year. Is the PS3 app better than the Apple TV app? Because I don't seem to be able to do much other than watch games. The iPad app looks a little better, so I suppose I could use airplay to stream to the tv for now, but that seems kind of unnecessary.

Might be the Verizon partnership. They steam nbc games to Verizon phones.

Maybe I'm missing something, but every time I try to use the Mosaic or PIP view on my computer, when I click on the second game I want to watch, I just get the game preview page. It does it on both Chrome and IE, so I don't know what the gently caress.

Just came in to post the exact same thing. When I click on mosaic, I click the box I want to put the next game in, and then it says "Click on the game from the score bar". I do this, and then it closes out and goes to the game preview page.

If I live in an area that doesn't get NHL Network, do the games they carry still get blacked out? I don't want to switch to satellite.

Does anyone else have issues with PIP in game center or is it just me? I just can't get it working. I click the pip and then the other game and it just switches to the other game.

Stupid blackouts. Watching hockey in bed is awesome, it's a shame I can't do that for all the games. Guess I will just have to make the most of the ones I can.

So do you have to link your GCL account every time you want to use the Boxee app or what?

The framerate on the iPhone and iPad apps are loving incredible, it's like watching straight from my TV. Unfortunately the internet app is just kinda cruddy, even with a 25mbps line it gets choppy after several minutes.

The framerate on my nexus 7 is smooth as silk also. Better than the 360 app.

With the first pick of the 2010 July 1st Draft, the Toronto Maple Leafs are very proud to select: Colby Armstrong

Not having a great time with the 360 app so far, whole lotta buffering compared to the iPad app. Usually things smooth out a little bit once free preview season ends for the browser version, maybe that'll work out again this year. Don't like that I can't manually set the bitrate to keep things more consistent.

I blame my lovely internet and the 360 app automatically defaulting to "best quality" instead of "most watchable quality"

What yours describing sounds exactly like what was happening to me last night. Everything has been going smooth for tonights games though.

Can you even manually change the quality on the 360 app?

So I watched last night's Devils-Isles game and the quality was absolutely great. I was watching on my computer, but it was surprisingly crisp for an online app. It *looks* like it's HD (MSG+ feed), but I'll follow up when I can put it on the TV.

I hope the PS3 app, or more importantly, live games, are as good.

The picture quality looks great on the 360 app. The ps3 app has been out for the last 2 years so im sure that'll be even better/more fully featured.

The only thing you'll notice is games don't look as "smooth" as on television. It bothers some people, while others don't care. I dont personally care, its fine to me.

Sure, it is 720P HD, but the framerate is only 30 FPS while on TV it's 60 (and it's achieved simply by dropping every other frame, not by blending 2 consecutive ones, which makes it slightly choppier than it could be). Hockey is pretty much the one sport where that can bother a person due to the constant camera panning, but seriously, in my opinion it's pretty great.

Someone in here posted earlier saying that NHL/Gamecenter placed the blame on Sony and their certification/store upload process.

Kinda makes sense, since I think Sony only uploads games/apps/DLC to their store one day a week (used to be Thursdays, not sure if they changed that). It's been a point of contention for PS3 owners since the console came out.

That really sucks, but does not surprise me one bit with regards to Sony. I can stick to watching GCL on my HTPC, but I'd like to go back to the PS3 app, it worked really great for me last season.

It doesn't have an app, but the Gamecenter Live website works on my Sony NSZGS7. It was sort of cool being able to watch a GCL game with NHL network in the PIP.

Has anyone know where to get the Gamecenter Premium .apk for android phone or tablet (for those of us not on verizon)?
