    Let's just hope that they don't mirror the deal they did with Rogers in Canada, where not only isn't GameCenter included with Centre Ice, but only Rogers subscribers have access to bonus camera angles and instant replays, while things that were previously available to stream for free from the networks like Hockey Night in Canada and Wednesday Night Hockey now require a subscription to GameCenter if you want to watch it on a mobile device.

    That wouldn't happen here until the next national contract. Rogers bought all media rights in Canada. NBC Universal only has national ota and cable. Big difference. The Rogers deal was the main reason I bailed on Bell and went back to DTV.

    So, no Jets feed tonight due to D10 failure....hope this doesn't mean we just lost all canadian feeds for the rest of the season.

    At least were getting the capitals feed in HD. The panthers /Montreal game is getting no HD feed. The guide shows the Florida feed, but getting a 771 error. Guessing due to the d10 problems.

    Tonight is a perfect example why they need to offer Game Center, alongside Center Ice.

    I went with Game Center this year and PQ has been excellent via Roku 3... much better than before. Streaming is really about equal now with PQ.

    It's the regular channel feed with everything ... at least Detroit's games are.

    I haven't tried it with the Roku but a friend of mine has Gamecenter and on both PC and PS3 the difference between streaming and D* is still quite noticeable.

    I've noticed live looks a little better than replays for some odd reason.

    its actually a shame it isnt on fireTV ... the fireTV MLB app is by far the best of all platforms. right now the best one I have seen hockey on is the roku 3.... remember hockey moves faster than baseball and the difference between streaming and satellite is going to be more noticeable.

    The Roku Streams of the NHL are superb. With the exception of TSN feeds, the Roku feeds are identical to broadcast feeds and dual feeds are always available. TSN feeds don't have commercials or intermissions. Even with this one weakness I don't miss NHLCI on DirecTV.

    But you can't record the games, correct?

    You can rewatch games or if you come in late you can start from the beginning.

    In most cases hockey moves faster, but my favorite team is the New Jersey Devils and there is nothing fast about them this season.

    I no longer subscribe to Center Ice and Extra Innings. I have both a Roku and AppleTV and streaming NHL-Game Center and MLB.tv on both of the devices is every bit the equal of Directv's offerings with added features.

    You get MLB.tv with EI, now, for a little extra total - that's definitely worth it IMO. I wish GC & CI were the same.

    I need to try a Roku3, it lets you stream from a DLNA server, doesn't it? I heard FireTV doesn't let you do that which is ridiculous and will ensure I never buy one.
