OK, just stumbled upon this thread and it has me concerned. Can anyone comment specifically on what is being blacked out for Penguins games? What zip codes, etc? Is it only those in Pittsburgh area, those outside Pittsburgh area? I noticed last week that when I tried to watch a preseason game that was on Root I got a message that it was not available in my area, and the game was NOT on NHL Network. That was my first cause for concern.
After moving from Pittsburgh to South Florida, I have had Center Ice for almost 15 years to watch Penguins games, and it is truly the main reason why I have never left DirecTV. Their Center Ice Package is far superior to what anyone else can offer, but if the Penguins games are going to be blacked out, it is useless to me, and I'll be looking to switch to some other method or another TV provider.
