    colorado,...
    Watched the whole game in SD. Hope we do't have to do that for a while! What is curious to me is this, Altitude had there alternate channel up tonight(channel 682) televising a local high school football game and it was in HD! So DTV was getting that feed OK.....

    I noticed the Calgary/Columbus game was in SD last night. Why? Sportsnet West had it in HD, in Canada. It's the same ridiculous stuff as last year. In Canada, they do the same with the MSG and Comcast feeds. Why can't the NHL get their head around this, in both countries? I was thinking of subscribing again this year, but after the free preview in both countries, I think that I'll pass.

    Not sure where you are or what system you were watching on, but I watched the game on Fox Sports Ohio brought to me in "glorious high definition by Time Warner Cable." Of course I was watching on Directv.

    Wow. We are getting CSN Philly in HD tonight. What a pleasant surprise! Although I wouldn't mind the CBC broadcast as well but I guess that's a bit greedy of me

    CBC HD on 769-1 and CSN-Philly HD on 770-1. Good job DirecTV.

    We'll see if it's a constant after the free preview.

    I'm sure it will go back to normal. But I'll take it.

    My on screen guide is showing that the Canucks @ Flames game on Sunday night will have an HD feed on 771-1. This will be great if it actually happens.

    It will have to come from SportsNet-West or SportsNet-Pacific. I usually have to watch these feeds in crappy SD.

    In Rochester, NY

    Why is it saying Oilers/Canucks and Coyotes/Sharks are unavailable? BS

    Thanks!

    So I guess the score guide is unreliable and doesn't really work - this has happened before.

    I think they pick up some wild backhaul feeds when they have the room but on some channel I thing the home games are not wild / backhaul feeds so they have to pay added fees for them.

    Last year they had that odd shaded TSN JETS / tsn habs feed that was loaded with BELL TV ad's (the channel is not 24/7 and is likely is setup for local ad's to be added in at the cable headends) BELL owns 80% of TSN.

    Is anyone else disappointed all the Fox Sports RSNs are showing the ticker throughout the entire broadcasts? I may be nit picking but I find it irritating. Luckily MSG only uses it when the game isn't going on.

    Furthermore, is there anyone we can try to contact to complain about this (although it probably won't accomplish anything and I'm aware of that ;))

    I'm finding very unreliable this year, the Phi/Car games shows as 771-1 but is on 769-1, found it after tuned to a blank screen. The other night, lot of the games only have one of the two channels or just had Check Local Listings.

    Sportsnet Pacific feed in HD on 771-1 for Canucks/Flames! Keep it up DirecTV.

    Finally! In the past, this matchup would almost certainely have been in SD. Hope it's not a one time thing. If they can show it this time in HD, why not in past games??

    I agree, and also NHL Network does the same. How do we work to change this?? Just a thought.

    The question isn't about why not in the past, it's will it continue in the future.
