Hi, this may or may not be helpful. I used to watch NHL through cable packages which includes a subscription not only for premium channels, but to the
sports package as well. Considering I otherwise don't watch TV, it just became a costly mess and I only tried it for one season before dumping it. The
service was horrible overall.
I prefer to subscribe for sports on whichever official websites offer them. (I figure Game Pass is a lot like my Gamecenter Live subscription.)
It's cheaper and much more convenient than cable subscriptions in my opinion. I'm running on a dinosaur pc with DSL (so relatively slow connection,)
and the streams work just fine for me in good picture quality. Obviously, the faster connection, the better, but I've had no problems and I'm
operating at bare minimum here.
One major feature I'm thrilled about with streaming vs. cable is that you can watch any game at any time. I remember with the cable service, you could
only watch a game live...if they happened to be broadcasting that particular game. In fact, a lot of the features for online streams trump cable
services in just about every way imaginable.
I ditched the cable packages (overpriced scams) for website subscriptions and I'm lovin' it every season
Good luck, hope this helps.
