NHL GameCenter is carrying the NBC games (Not NBCSports, just the NBC ones) for free on its' app, if you are a Verizon customer and have a 4G phone.

The resort you'll be at might have free wifi.

Can you call/e-mail and ask them if they have satellite packages on the resort that cover the NHL? Most of these resorts cater to Americans and Canadians, so they will often have the appropriate TV channels in a bar area or some such. Is your fiance on board with you watching games whilst on your honeymoon? Make sure she's good with it first. :lol:

I can tell you that my friend inquired about data charges in Mexico...and they were ridiculous.
Have to hope that wifi is included.

I thought that all of the games were streamed on the NBC site?
If necessary, make sure that you can proxy in with a US IP.

Oh, they're streamed?

Looks like Sky Sports covers NHL. Maybe it will be on since it's the finals.

What's the directv option, Kovy?

Fiancee isn't happy. She'll deal ;-)

You have to plan better than that Mac. Badhands and I purposefully got hitched in late April so we wouldn't miss much. If we're not in South Africa for the Finals, (because of work, can't plan around that), I can hook you up if you have wifi. If the wifi is crap, you can listen to the game on the iheart app.

Directv has an app for iphone, ipad, android that you can watch any station at any time via those devices.

Well I did plan this out good I thought, just so happened the lockout happened.

I thought you had to be connected to the same wifi that your DTV receiver was connected?
