    Default Center Ice 2013-2014 Price

    Well, the NHL Network is saying that NHL Center Ice is being offered at it's lowest price in 5 years, which is blatant bullshit. I went to look online, but no price was listed, so I contacted my Cable Provider and was told the Early Bird price was $159.99, and when I got it a couple years back, it was $139.

    Anyone else notice this crapola?

    Just checked out this site. $110 for 12 months is very reasonable, especially if it includes playoffs (which are blacked out on GameCenter Live as they are broadcasted on CBC, TSN etc here in Canada).

    The question is, how does hockeystreams do it? If they are exploiting some kind of broadcasting rights loophole, is it possible they could be shut down unexpectedly?

    I'm on hockeystreams as well and have been very happy with it.

    One other bonus, which is almost enough to justify the price on it's own, they also show all UFC pay per views in HD. Something to keep in mind!

    The loophole is that it's illegal. You can get free streams of all the games if you browse around enough, but they do all the leg work in return for a fee.

    I believe hockeystreams.com has been challenged legally before and managed to win their case. Double jeopardy prevents them from being re-tried. Or Im thinking about another site for something completely different.

    Anyways, its the stream site I use and its amazing. As mentioned, it also includes all the UFC fights, which are $50ish PPV events, free. It's more than just webstreams, they've got plugins for various devices. I stream it through their mobile page to my iPhone which airplays it to my appleTV device on the 50". full HD.

    Leaf games are under highest demand and I have had a couple games too laggy to watch, but 95% of the time its zero lag and full HD.

    hockeystreams avoids persecution by the NHL by being located in a different country. and because the NHL is apparently still able to charge suckers $150 for a season of tv.
