A few days old now, I think.. but the Oilers TV schedule was announced this week. Sportsnet picks up 60 games this year, with 17 of them on Sportsnet One.

So far all but one of the pre-season games (that one vs. the Wild) will be watchable too. Four of them will be on the Oilers' website, one will be on TSN and one will be on CBC. Would be nice if they picked up that final game too, because while the Wild can be boring at the best of times, I'd like to watch as much of RNH and others as I can.

I still don't know if I'll be able to see ANY games this year.

The NHL rights in europe haven't been sold to broadcasters yet, or at least not announced, so no legal streams and no NHL on tv =(

Can't you get Center Ice?

o.o

I know if you don't live in NA you can get super cheap NBA/NFL live... if the NHL was smart they'd do the same. Realistically, ti lets them tap into a market that they previously didn't have.

Actually, I change my mind... the NHL would be stupid not to.

I did a review of NHL Game Center on the blog. I can honestly say that I loved it. Jay from Low On Oil mentioned to me that as a site owner I could request a free trial on the year to review it. I had some internet connection problems at the time which prevented me from fully enjoying it, but I saw the value in it. It was extremely cool.

There's the review. I don't get anything out of recommending it to anyone. I just think it's a pretty cool product. It sucks for anyone who's team is based where they live cause they blackout those games. I couldn't even watch Calgary games. But for displaced fans, it's a very cool website.

game center is only for the US/Canada right now. I used center ice via ESPN player last season and it was awesome, though it ruined my sleeping patterns as a few people here will be able to tell you :p

However the rights deal for the NHL expired at the end of last season, and new companies took over the rights for the next 5 years, but they are yet to decide how the games will be distributed

I have the Super Sports Pack which comes with Center Ice for NHL games. I'm pretty happy with it but it so pisses me off when they broadcast a game in standard definition when they are showing that gave in Hi-Def.
