    Wouldn't it make tons of sense to have your location noted in your avatar box when talking about regional matters?
    Please? It takes only a minute.

    Does anybody know the status of Center Ice contract between Directv and NHL?

    All while living in the Houston DMA? Interesting and illegal.

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

    I imply nothing, but do ask: how do you manage to do that?

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

    So, will you share what's going on, or play games?

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

    It's amazing what one very superlong coax cable can do. ;)

    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?

    You're the one making assumptions, not me.

    Uh, no; YOU'RE the one making assumptions via your comments above.

    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).
