I had it last season and it's still working. I can access all of the NHL vault,and i didn't renew my subsciption nor did i pay for the NHL vault feature.
I'm sure though that they will shut me down when the season starts. :(

I was wondering about this - like Blaise, I can log in and access the vault etc (my subscription expired on Boxing Day).

I wondered whether there'd be some kind of goodwill gesture (since we'd paid for the subscription and hadn't watched any games due to the lockout) and that perhaps we could watch the first few games for free.

I don't mind either way, just as long as I can watch the game come Sunday! (I'm in Australia, so it's on Sunday here)

The subscription should be renewed automatically, but you are supposed to get an e-mail before they charge your credit card for the upcoming season in order to give you a chance to cancel. I haven't received any mail yet, but I can still access classic games.

$49,99 seems like a fair price to me for the shortened season, including playoffs. I miss all the people I met regularly in the GCL chatroom which is only open during games. Glad to talk to them again soon.

for the people who have had it, how is the quality? is the mobile version any good?


The full version on computers is just like watching it in SD quality on TV. On my android phone, it has worked just fine. You could actually see the puck and there were only very few problems with the stream. This time, I'm going to try it on my new iPad as well - a nice way to watch two games at the same time.

I use it on my ps3 and apple products. I had no problems with quality. I still don't like those evil blackouts for CBC and tsn games.

The quality in the uk was great. I wouldn't expect it to be different this year. By the way I haven't received an email yet either and it is only days away now.

If your payment information is the same and you have you account set up to renew automatically notifications and renewal will happen on the 21st. I phoned last night to get set up and this is what the rep told me.

I have just written again to NHL GCL to ask when they propose to email existing subscribers. Some hard liners over here in the UK are wishing to cancel (not me, I think it is an excellent deal) and as I understand it the subscription is automatically taken from your Bank Account unless "on receiving this phantom email" you reply saying you do not wish to subscribe for another year.

Am I misunderstanding what they told me on Tuesday and that those who do not wish to continue with their subscription should in fact just contact them via their web site and cancel before the first game?

I understand this has all had to be done in a rush but I envisage quite a few people being unhappy if as some over here seem to think that you have to APPLY for each season when in actual fact it is assumed if you don't physically cancel you have deemed to have agreed to another season.

Anyone else confused?

I read that you can only have it active on one device at a time.

It's odd really. Sometimes I could watch a game on my iPhone while one played on the ps3, other times I'd get a message saying only one device at a time. No clue of the pattern but technically you're right.

First day of the season and they have already managed to completely destroy their whole website. nhl.com doesn't work as it should, GCL can't be accessed. Oh well, it's not like the league needs to redeem itself for something, right? :picard:

Does anyone know if when you start a game on gamecenter can you pause it and resume it a few hours later as long as you don't exit it?

I would say it ranks as the absolute worst in both departments for anything I've ever used.

Can anyone confirm that gamecenter streams playoff games? I get that they'll be blocked out if they were but I have my ways around it. I'm trying to find legal ways of streaming the playoffs so I don't have to pay for cable.

Lol not directed to you. It's directed towards us in NA where it will be blacked out because it's on CBC, tsn, NBC etc. That's good that the playoffs will be streamed through this. Thanks for the info. Got my Europe proxies ready and waiting.

I dunno how I can word it differently really...
The games are blacked out in North America, so proxy your ip to Europe, as they are not blacked out there...?
