    For what it's worth, I'm in Sharks Territory (*chuckle*) and don't have any TV provider but I do have a Roku with Center Ice and I love them. My problem is no Sharks vs. Kings games and no national or NBCSN games because I have no TV login account with a provider (so no streaming on their site), I'd say I have a way to watch 80% of regular season Kings' games with this set-up and for that other 20% (and playoffs) there are less than optimal streaming workarounds...

    I have been thinking about picking up an HD antenna for NBC games but have ZERO EXPERIENCE using an antenna (well, not since rabbit ears) - anyone have any thoughts on HD antennas and NBC games?

    If you get reception at all (and that can be a big if), this thing works AWESOME http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-U...s=leaf+antenna

    If you want to do research go to AVForums.

    I just checked and their lookup at NHL.com - Gamecenter Live FAQ and my zip code now shows both Ducks and Kings are blacked out.

    But when I signed up for this season the Ducks were but the Kings weren't, and because I was concerned about it I printed the proof which I still have filed away somewhere.

    I won't get it next season if they actually are blacked out.

    If you are in line of site of the broadcast tower this is all you need for over the air HD.

    If you are not in line of site, you are most likely sol.

    I use Gamecenter and pay a little extra for a VPN service to get around any blackout restrictions. I use Witopia. For local games on FSW I quickly connect a server in Phoenix or the Bay Area, start streaming the game, and then disconnect from the VPN server since it is no longer needed and the VPN connection can sometimes be slow. Works like a charm. I connect to a VPN server in Mexico City for nationally broadcast games and playoffs.

    I do the same for MLB.tv but they have stiffer restrictions. You have to be connected to the VPN service at all times or else it stops playing.

    High Performance or standard? Does it matter?

    Never tried the high performance so I'm not sure. The standard has worked great so far. But if SirJW's works, it's cheaper.

    Rabbit ears may actually work, it just depends on the signal in your location. There are some simple, inexpensive indoor antenna available at best buy and many other places. You can also check out Antennas Direct | Your TV and HDTV Antenna Source.

    In terms of an acceptable signal, there is no difference between standard def and HD. It's all digital, and either you have a strong enough signal or you don't. There's no "snowy image" for digital signals.
