Just tried GCL on PC and was able to log in. The message was that GCL 2016-17 was included with my Ignite Internet package, so assume that it would also be included with share everything plans (like last year). I had to register again and once that was complete, was able to play world cup of hockey game. I then checked on my android phone. After updating the app (version 😎 I had success there as well. Did the same thing on wife's iPad and again success after updating the app. So yes - appears to be free again for 2016-17!
