I've had Center Ice through Directv since I moved to Idaho. I love it. Got it for the Kings, but great to see any game I want on a given day as well. I read a lot of great things about the online equivalent, but since I am always home needing something I could take with me doesn't matter to me.

Angry take down that link please before you get a warning.
I am looking for a sub service.
My main concern with gamecenter is that "blackout restrictions apply"

I think anything can have some blackout issues. I imagine if they play the Sharks you may not see the Kings feed. I'm not in any hockey market so can't be sure on that with Center Ice. It is that way with MLB Extra Innings though. I am an A's fan and when they play Seattle I have to watch the Seattle announcers. I hate that, but whatever.
Off topic. I worked in San Jose for 5 years and my boss was a Sharks season ticket holder, so I went to several games while there. Don't care for the team, but it is a nice place to watch a game and they have passionate fans. One reason why I want the A's to move down there. I think the sports fans there are pretty good.

I use Center Ice. All the games were HD last year.

There are always blackout issues, which is really annoying and counter-intuitive at times. It's like they force you to find "other ways" to watch the games online.

Center ice is good, BUT make sure you have NBC sport network on your provider because Center Ice is obsolete after 1st round of playoffs. YES , not all the games have HD feeds all the time. And as i noticed last season you dont get all the teams in certain markets, black out applys to all games running on nbc sports network. I noticed lack of very few Devils, rangers home games, and very rarely did i ever see a Flyers Home feed. I noticed if there wasnt an HD feed it was usually a canadien home team feed left out usually the habs. I did like it when NHL network started running the full Hockey night in canada double games on saturday with HNIC before the games and the full after hours post game coverge. But last season they ran only 1 game of the 2 games then switched to nhl 2nite feed for the rest of the night, and the 2nd nhl games was moved to diff channel on center ice

NBC Sports starting soon is why I just cancelled my CI for what's left of this season. Next year, I'll call DTV and get it back.

Two things I can't (well ok I probably could) do without is Center Ice and MLB Extra Innings. I get those every year.
