    I see in ios 4.3 you can get MLB at bat and if you have a states itunes account you can get NBA season pass, but where are the rest of the sports? I like watching baseball and basketball but I want hockey and football. These are what I watch most. There is NHL Game center for $80. NFL game pass is available as well. Where are the apple tv apps for these services?

    There wouldn't be much point adding NFL Game Pass at the moment. The fact that it isn't there at the moment doesn't say anything about whether it may be in the Autumn.

    I understand that it is a bit more complicated than MLB though, and at present NFL are way behind MLB when it comes to internet access.

    when they add nhl center ice, I'll be one step closer to dropping satellite.

    The NFL would be great but I have a feeling DirectTV will pay whatever the NFL asks to retain exclusive rights to those feeds. :cool:

    NHL GameCenter has some serious issues with buffering on both the iPad and Computer. My guess is they didn't make the cut, or :apple: simply refused until they get their act together. There were some indications and chatter about NHL GameCenter coming to the :apple:TV but something happened. Go read the iPad reviews on iTunes. They're abysmal.
