First of all, the streaming most times had a "lag" effect, I can’t describe it other than it wasn’t 100% smooth. This wasn’t too bothersome but noticeable to me (for the record it had nothing to do with internet speed, etc - other people have mentioned this and I have a 20 mg connection, more than enough to stream HD smoothly).
However, the most bothersome, and frankly the reason many people hate the pens, was the insane amount of national pens games televised on NBC or NHL Network. There were over 40 games on these channels, all blacked out on Game Center. I knew this going in, but in retrospect I should have saved my money, if you don’t have NHL channel or NBC (vs.) I would be careful to check the pens national TV schedule before pulling the trigger.
The plus side to game center is the archived games, stats and etc.

However, I know many a people who set it up wireless without an issue. Roku is a great deal, I pay 24.99 for Netflix, Hulu, and MOG. Plus I have HD antenna in the attic that get me my local channels. However, I do miss Center Ice on Direct TV. Just not enough to pay 90 bucks a month for TV service.
