I wonder if they're blacked out on Dish and cable? If not, then this does sound like a D* issue.

 They are certainly blacked out on FIOS.

watching calgary/phoenix at the moment via gamecenter. tsn feed.

I don't know how you're getting them, but there are no games showing up on any of my NHLGC apps.

It shows up on a computer, but not iPhone, Apple TV or Roku. Yes, I have all of them. I know it is overkill....

Log into your NHL Gamecenter live account and then have it launch it. It will take you to the current day. This is the first time in a long time that they have started carrying preseason games in that package. I suspect the league retaining the rights may have something to do with the new blackouts. Having said that according to the game finder program on the Dish network site the games are blacked out there too. I don't subscribe to their sports pack because it is redundant and not needed since the pac 12 network is considered and rsn in my area. I don't expect the RDS game to be available though. They generally don't use that feed unless it is the only feed available for the game.

I tried looking for games tonight on NHLGC and didn't see any listed. How are you getting them?

Don't be afraid to be yourself.

I didn't read where is would be viewable, but read the general blackout rules. There is no rule/reason for it to be blacked out...


When the Winnipeg Jets had live feeds of preseason games on their website, they said it would not viewable out of the market due to NHL rules, not theirs.
