You would have to find out if local blackouts apply. If there ARE local blackouts... then if you're watching the game in an area where it's available on cable... you are out of luck. I live in Canada so people in the Jersey area may have more insight the rules down there.

 

I have an X-Box One and the Gamcenter Live apphas been problematic for me this year. It's prone to random dropouts and lag has been an issue for me this season (my internet download speeds normally test at about 75-80 mps... so it's not the fastest connection, but it was more stable on previous versions of the GameCentre app). All that to say, I have no idea how the PS4 version of the app runs. I would look into that -- and blackouts.

 

I've used it in the past and as Sammy says, it's great and really convenient -- if it works.

I prefer GameCenter Live as opposed to TV based Center Ice since you can watch on a variety of devices. I'm able to watch on the computer, phone, tablet, Roku, and now Chromecast.

You live here in jersey?

Gamecenter has served me well but I do not live in Jersey. And this year if you want you can pay a lesser amount if you just want to get Devils games as opposed to every game.

 

Yes, there will be blackouts when they are on national TV (rare). If you live in Jersey, there are ways to get around the blackout restrictions by using a proxy IP (google is your friend here).

Sorry I am not, guess I'm not too helpful then.

Heard somewhere if you use a VPN or Proxy you can even get Gamecenter for $99 which I guess is an international price.  Not sure though as I never tried it.

I have had game center for the past 5 years.  Works great for me but again am not in the jersey area.  Every year local games have been blacked out.  I live in Baltimore now and the Caps game wasn't blacked out on Saturday every other year it had been. Games still broadcast on NBCSN and NHL Network are blacked out.

If the Devils are on TV in his/her local area, they will be blacked out.

 

This is pretty much the right and most simple answer. With Gamecenter, if you live in Jersey or New York, you will never get a Devils game because it's always available on some cable network (MSG, MSG+, NBC Sports, NBC). Cable gets first dibs. I believe Center Ice works the same way, but since that's a cable platform, it's really only useful for watching out or market games. Same with Gamecenter.

 

I live in Austin, TX, so Gamecenter works great for me. I get every Devils game except for Devils / Stars and if they're ever on NBC or NBC Sports.

 

Just an FYI, Gamecenter stinks during the playoffs. You'll only get about half of the first two rounds and none of the finals, because NBC Sports and NBC has a good portion of the games. You'd think the NHL could work out a deal that would make the Stanley Cup Finals available on every platform, but that's not the case.

Yes, it does. Center Ice is much better in that regard.

Yea, but that doesn't make my answer incorrect!  :P
