NHL Gamecenter Live - Is it worth it?

So I recently moved from San Jose for graduate school and this will be the first time that I won't be able to get all the Sharks games on local television. At first I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, I'd be busy with school and I simply wouldn't have the time to watch the Sharks as much anymore.

However, I figure I can make the time and considering most games won't be on until 10 o'clock at night (I moved to Buffalo) I can get all my work done before then and still enjoy most of the games.

My question to all of you is you guys know anything about NHL Gamecenter Live and if it's worth it or not.

Since I'm living on a campus owned apartment with it's own cable setup, I can't get DirecTV Center Ice. So all that I am left with is NHL Gamecenter. Does anyone have it or know much about it? It's $160 for the whole season (does that include the playoffs?) It seems pretty cool, it has DVR functionality so I can rewind or pause and all kinds of things. And the quality has to be better than shitty firstrowsports and I wouldn't have to desperately look for a stream every night.


Also, do I get to choose which broadcast I watch? For example, if the Sharks are playing in Anaheim, do I get an option over which broadcast I watch, ours or theirs?


One other thing, since I'd be shelling out $160 I'd really like to be able to watch it on TV, rather than my shitty laptop. Does anyone know much about hooking up your computer to your TV so you can watch on there? I have an old MacBook with your basic ports (USB, firewire, and some other stuff I don't know what a mini-DVI I believe) Is there like some chord I can buy to hook my laptop up to my TV whenever a game is on?

Also, does Gamecenter do HD? My laptop isn't HD, but my TV is? Is there a way to make that work?


I don't know if anyone will be able to help me with all that, but if you guys know anything about Gamecenter, specifically if it's worth it, I'd like to hear your opinions.


Thanks and GO SHARKS!
