NHL Playoffs on Roku

Postby jetman1287 » Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:37 am

Any hope for out of market NHL fans? With 8 different playoff series going on at once, I doubt I will be able to watch my team from another market. I have NBC through antenna, but what about Versus? Will they offer a subscription online?

Sucks to pay $160 for the season and not get the playoffs...

NHL GameCenter on Roku has all the playoff games available. You won't see them live but every one will be there on archive.

If watching live is that important to you then I suggest a subscription to cable or sat.

As far as I have heard the playoffs will be on the Roku under the same blackout rules as the season had.

All you have to do if your game is blacked out is wait an hour or two after the end of the game and then you can watch it. Just like the regular season.

Please tell me more about "all you have to do if your game is blacked out>>>>>>hour or two after the end of the game and then you can watch it. Just like regular season."

What channel shows games an hour or two after regular season games? Is this that NHL Gamecenter LIVE! thing? Can't be....LIVE means "LIVE" i'd think.

Thanks,

NHL GameCenter streams games live with certain blackout restrictions.

NHL GameCenter also has archives of every game played so far this season (and also some past seasons too as well as classic games from back in the day) that you can watch as early as an hour after the game ends. The same with the MLB.TV package for baseball games.

Live or archive makes it hard to miss seeing any game you want.

That's nice they're available, but if all games are on NBC and VS, won't they ALL be blacked out live?

Archived doesn't cut it, that means you have to watch at 11pm or 5am the next morning (while avoiding all internet access)...was hoping for an MLB Postseason TV kinda thing that actually worked

I was hoping to win the $640 million mega-millions lottery jackpot this past weekend.

Playoffs have changed now. NBC, NBC Sports Network, CNBC and NHL Network have national coverage. So only international NHL GameCenter subscribers will have games without blackouts. NHL GameCenter and NHL Center Ice will be similar to NBA league pass where the package will be just regular season games.

Incorrect information you are posting.

The NHL GameCenter package includes the playoff games. You may not be able to view them live but you can still view them shortly after they end and every one will be on the NHL GameCenter channel.

I meant live. Not archived yes. So very partial incorrect information.

Except during the regular season EVERY SINGLE GAME EVERY NIGHT isn't blacked out.

Why don't they just run the games WITH the network commercials. Wouldn't NBC love to be able to increase the number of eyes they can sell to advertisers?

I bought a Roku & PAID for the NHL subscription because I wanted to get away from cable and now the NHL wants to push me back.

And it's worth repeating: EVERY SINGLE GAME EVERY SINGLE NIGHT IS BLACKED OUT!!!

What are those other means? Please share (unless they include a cable subscription).

Some things you just got to dig a little bit to find out and not expect them to be spoon fed to you. The search button on the top right is your best friend on the forum..........but sometimes it seems like very few are willing to do a little work to use it and go through the results. Google is a wonderful next step also.

Have Fun
