Bypass NHL TV blackouts and stream all hockey games
While NBC’s a great choice, it’s important to note that their selection is somewhat limited. If you want more games, then you’re going to want to subscribe to GameCenter on NHL.TV.
But even with your subscription, you still have to worry about blackouts.
That’s because regional markets have sole broadcasting rights, so some games may not be available in your area until 48 hours after a game is televised.
The secret to avoiding NHL blackouts? Just connect to a VPN server location where games are not being aired. If you’re in Chicago, for example, and games are being broadcast on TV, connect to a VPN server location in another city or country. That way you can stream hockey live without having to worry about blackouts.
Secure your connection while you stream NHL GameCenter with a VPN
When you use a VPN, you can watch with blazing-fast speeds while knowing your privacy is protected. Just connect to any server location and use your VPN as an alternative to hockey streams. Even better, you can watch every NHL game without having to worry about slow load times or blackouts.

Use a VPN to save money on your GameCenter subscription
But wait! There’s more! Because GameCenter is available globally, subscription prices vary. You can actually save money on your GameCenter subscription by using a VPN to sign up from a server location outside the U.S. Countries like Russia, Germany, or Greece usually have better deals. Be sure to check different prices to see the best results.
And for all you Canadian readers, you don’t have to settle with the Canadian-only Rogers streaming site. You can use your VPN as an NHL GameCenter workaround to access all 1,230 GameCenter games from inside Canada!
Save money and avoid blackouts? Yes, please!
