The link on canucks.com for watch live games isnt working. I heard that there is a $50.00 online package to watch all canucks games. Can anyone point me to where this is? Or to a better legal site?

I live in the US and would love to support our boys this year.

I have overheard people that say there are ways around that. Don't think it's entirely legal?

Yes for the most part, not the games vs. Philly (none this year).

For some reason they don't show games at all, but 95% or more are on.

You get pretty much every game. It's a great package. The last 5 games or so this year will be great all around the league. For $50 bucks you can't lose. Usually $200.

Only if you live in BC/The yukon.

OP, Yes Game Centre is worth it, and yes you will get pretty much all the games, the only games you will not get are the ones that are on local TV in your area. I.E. Im in Ontario, so any games on HNIC or TSN are blacked out but all Snet pacific games are on game center. For you, Being in Philly, and the Canucks not playing any eastern teams this season (until the finals), You should get pretty much all of the games on Game Centre. and yes, its 49.99 or 2 payments of 24.99 this season. Well worth it, IMO.

Is the quality ok to stream on the tv? Is it hd?

I'm just about to renew my gamecenter and didn't know there was another option.

Refer to my post where it says "it's 720p"
That's high def.
it's $90/yr. a year being 12 months, not season. Because they also show KHL, AHL, QMJHL, OHL, and WHL games.
Check out the preview. Judge the quality yourself. They also show tons of free games.

If you have an apple device I believe sports net had an app last year where you could get all their games for $9.99. And I game centre is 49.99 this year and It was between $80-90 last year.

And is that a legal site, authorized to rebroadcast the NHL feed of the game? If not, then it's not legal to post it here and you risk getting a ban/suspension for doing so.

In all honesty, I thought NHL Gamecenter was total garbage.

I was amazed to learn that the NHL doesn't actually have a top notch way of viewing games online. Maybe they're working on it still?
The money they could make if they just did it right, would be significant. The fans would be happy too.

As far as experience goes, there was lag even while viewing at lowest quality.
I found the coverage wasn't as good and there was never any after game banter and highlights.. it would just end.
It just made me miss Sportsnet and TSN Highlights.

There are ways to view live streams, but i won't get into that.

(BTW I'm in Vancouver, and have a good connection.)

Though I paid for about 6 Canucks games, I won't be back. Piss poor.

It's already been mentioned, but bares repeating: NHL Gamecenter Live blacks out any games that are televised in your region.

ie: if you live in BC or the Yukon, you can't use GameCenter to watch Canucks games.


WTH is going on with Canucks TV is what I'd like to know. The season starts tomorrow and they still have the old (full) schedule up and more importantly the FULL PRICE ($39.99) stated .

Are these goofs going to get their crap together by tomorrow and slash that price since we're only seeing half the games this year?

I moved from BC to Southern California over 10 years ago, and Gamecenter helped keep me sane, giving me the chance to watch a pile of canucks regular season games.

As others have mentioned, you will not get to see the game if it is on a local channel. This gets brutal during the playoffs if the Canucks are playing an American team, as generally one of the Fox Sports stations were covering the game, and I'd be blacked out.

If your computer is in decent shape and not bogged down with viruses, your viewing experience should be fine. The application could be better designed, but all in all, I enjoyed it, and the only reason I unsubscribed is because I now work for DirecTV, and will be getting their hockey package, and I won't have to suffer the local blackout issue anymore.

Side note: Gamecenter's customer service is pretty good, once you get to talk to someone. They can fix your problem quickly, or explain why a game isn't visible (i.e. what channel the game is on on regulat TV). The automated garbage you have to go through to get to someone on the phone gets annoying, especially when you are missing out on prime Canucks action. However, you can start the game at the beginning and catch up, as if it was DVR'd, so that helps.

On Hockeystreams.com and/or Gamecenter Live, do they stream the Canucks feeds? like Sportsnet Pacific, etc?


or, since Gamecenter blocks locally broadcasted games, would using a VPN work to allow me to watch Canucks games on GCL? (as far as I know VPN's are legal)

It's clearly pirated content. The only legal way to pay for NHL games is to give the money to the NHL.
