If watching games in HD is important to you (of course it is), I don't think any other option comes close. Being able to choose home and away feeds is the icing on the cake for those of you who can't get enough Rick Jeanneret.

your area only "offers" comcast? are you completely covered in trees because I thought Directv (and Dish) was available everywhere you had line of site to the satellites?
I have a friend who has a lot of trees around him and he can get Directv but he can't pull in the HD feeds so he's stuck with that AT&T tv service. we obviously don't watch games at his house.

Pick your feed
HD (if you have a decent cable speeds)
Good picture quality (although there was slight "jitter" when panning)
Ability to get any game of the season in archives AND past select games from the NHL archive
The jitter issue, picture isnt perfect like Directtv HD, but it is more than decent HD quality
Lag if your trying to sync to radio
The biggest CON of them all by far for me was the blackout of national games, the Pens had over 40 games on national tv or the NHL network and I could not watch any of those games. If angered me to no end that the NHL blacked out games on Gamecenter if they were on the NHL network.
I am not sure of the Pens national TV shcedule, but I am not sure I will spend the bucks to watch only half the games. Would a VPN service work for National games?

That is technically illegal in most cases. Do a google search on OTARD.
