I never said anything about doing something illegal. Do not infer that which I do not imply.

You're in Houston's DMA, watching games on CSN Chicago without CI on DirecTV. Seems legit. :grin:

Maybe a Slingbox. But, that'd mean he's not watching it on his DirecTV system in his residence.

So maybe he has a buddy's or relatives extra receiver, that lives in Chicago down there with him. If both have Directv, (only way it would work anyway) what's the harm? They are both paying for the service, so no one is "stealing" anything.

I have no idea, just speculating and not implying that's what's going on. For me, I could care less.

 

Go Hawks!!

That might not be illegal, per se, but it's a violation of the TOS, and something I do not do.

*IF* that is what he is doing, then he or his relatives would be violating the DirecTV TOS which says you have to keep them informed where their receivers are located.  They would also be violating the NHLs (and possibly other professional sports) contracts with DirecTV. For someone in TX to watch an out-of-market, non-national game, they have to buy that sports package. So they would be stealing services.

Did you not read my post above yours?

BTW, do you recall why one should never assume?

I see.

Like I said I don't know.

But aren't you allowed to have 2 locations on your account? I.E. a summer home or winter home you can take a receiver with you? Or an RV? Or is that something that was changed with Directv?

 

I remember inquiring about this like 8-9 years ago, when I had a condo in FL and just wanted to take a receiver with me when I was there. At that time they said it was totally ok. Though I decided not to (there was no where to put a dish) it seemed possible. And if in this case if you had Center Ice then it would be totally legal?

If you have two locations, I believe one is supposed to contact DirecTV to tell them when you're in one area or another. It's the ole vacation home location scenario.

 

I do have 2 legitimate, separate accounts, though, because of living in 2 places. I did this because of your aforementioned supposition and because of the TOS requirements. Plus, it made it easier to deal with each city's respective local channels. Having one location switched on then another switched off and back and forth was a big pain and messed with preset recordings.

Back to the actual topic of the thread...  I see NHL Gamecenter is now listed as $149.99 for the season (which includes a $10 discount until 10/31/13).

And, at least on my Apple TV, if you choose to watch a game on Game Center after the fact, like lets say you have a life and go out and want to watch when you come home, you see the score. Kind of silly? Nest çe pas?

They've solved that problem on Roku and Xbox (the two platforms I have tried).  There is an easy option to hide the scores.   Granted, there are a couple of things that can still leak through (such as the auto-highlight window on the Xbox app that starts showing highlights of the night's games as soon as you log in), but you can easily learn to watch out for those pitfalls to keep yourself in the dark about the score.

 

The bigger issue for me is that the replays are often not available until multiple hours after the game ends.  That drives me nuts when a game finishes at 7PM, and I get home from work and want to start it at 8PM, only to find no reply available yet.  Often the replays don't come online until 11 or midnight..

If anyone subscribes to Game Center, please inbox me. I can't discuss it here.

So is Detroit.

And it looks like the Penguins are on NBC or NBCSN 17 times. Even though the Trib said teams can't be on NBC or NBCSN more than 12 times.

Directv customers :  Directv has updated their site.  They are now taking NHL Center ice orders online.  just go on  http://www.directv.com/sports/nhl 

 

price is either 1 payment 159.96 or 4 payments 39.99.

 

I'm actually a bid suprised to see it at 160.  I thought it be closer to 180.  That's about 6.15 a week for the package and they advertised about 40 games a week which would be just under .16 cents a game.   So I'm not complaining.  So I wasted no time.  I purchased the 1 payment option and I wont have to worry about it.

 

Training camps open 2nd week september,   Preseason starts sept 15.
