Awesome. Sounds like it is worth it. I basically want it to just watch Leaf games since I am outside Canada and the games come on at wacky times for me here. As long as I can watch a game that finished 12 hrs ago and not know the score I think I will get it. Thanks for the help!
I moved to Australia in January and didn't miss a single Leafs game with Gamecenter Live.

I subscribed to NHL Gamecenter Live last year. I live in Vancouver and I wanted a way to watch the Buds during the week, and catch some away games as well.
Pros: The quality is excellent, in terms of HD and streaming. If you have a question or problem they respond to you immediately (at least in my experience) via email --- like within 10 minutes!
Cons: I will not renew for next year because of their stupid blackout rules. Basically the game is blacked out on Gamecenter Live if it's being shown nationally on TSN or CBC. The kicker came midway through the season when CBC decided to show a Habs game instead of the Leafs game, and then the Leafs game was still blacked out on Gamecenter. I sent an email wondering what was going on, and they promptly responded saying it was out of their hands, CBC had the rights to the game and they made a gametime decision to show the Habs instead.
I'm sorry, but if I pay good money for the service (to watch any and/or all NHL games online in HD), I had better be able to do it. I am not sure who is the grandmaster idiot driving the protectionist blackout rules, but how shortsighted! If I may make a comparison to the NFL, if someone buys NFL Sunday Ticket, they can watch every NFL game. So why can't I do the same for the NHL? And look at all the NFL fans scattered all over North America - NFL fandom is not driven by proximity.
Does that answer your question?
