Well it sucks over in the UK too.
I bought NHL GCL thinking it would be just like last year, no restrictions, only to find the NHL had hived off a cherry picking product to Premier Sports (a subsidiary of Sky Sports)
I already pay about $30 a month for Sky sports, mainly for football, rugby, tennis and golf. However not only is PS another subscription over and above that but because it appears to be an exclusive SKY channel I can't get it (even if I wanted) because I'm a Virgin Media customer(cable not Sat)
So the upshot is any game that is shown at a decent hour over here (i.e. before midnight) tends to be blacked out for 48 hours. Not only that but anything they show "delayed" is also blacked out and any "big game" at any time that they choose to show is blacked out.
The last straw is PS have said that none of the SC Finals will be available to GCL and very few of the playoff games. No prizes for guessing I won't be renewing my subscription next season.
