There was certainly a lot of fanfare
when Google announced
that they were going to allow people around the world to watch in-season full-length games on Google Video
. Well, it seems that Comcast
now allows anyone in the US to stream up to 2 live
games a day. When Comcast and the NHL first made this announcement
, the games were only viewable to Comcast High-Speed Internet customers. This year, anyone in the US can watch the games - even DSL subscribers - via the Comcast Hockey Live
Before you get too excited there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Local games are usually blacked out, and to watch the live streams you'll need a PC with Microsoft Windows Media Player 9.x or higher and IE 6+ or a similar generation browser. So Mac users are out of luck (shock).
