    Im guessing reading the above my question is answered but for the sake of just making sure I'll ask anyway. There isn't an NHL Game Mix channel, right?

    Just give us the games first. Jets/Canadians are playing Oct 9th and it's a CBC game. So far the schedule posted on directv's website doesn't even have center ice carrying the game SD or HD.

    That is because the game is on versus or nhl network - i forgot which one.
    Regardless there won't be any effort on the NHLCI front. The season opener Thursday is only in SD between Montreal and Toronto. That s a shame! Especially now that some other means of providing games really improved lately via the web (if you know what site i am talking about, it's worth checking out the improvements that were made over the past month in video quality - not referring to Gamecenter). It's a shame that some "not-so-legal" source can provide you with a better quality than NHLCI. :nono2:

    Also no HD between Ottawa and Toronto on Saturday.
    No HD between Pittsburgh and Calgary for the second Saturday night game.

    I wonder if the cable package will have Canadian HD feeds?

    So is this something produced by CI or ID???

    In Demand has provided us with details on what to expect from Center Ice this season:

    MULTI-SCREEN MOSAIC: The popular rotating mosaic of multiple screens that shows all the live action games being played around the league, along with score, time clock and channel location is back for another season. The multi-screen mosaic can be found on the "Game 14" channel of the system's package lineup.

    Not bad ratings for pre season games going up against new shows and premieres for the major networks and MNF on ESPN.

    very half baked next to what MLB EI and NFL ST mix is.

    found a video showing it in the back round

    as for more HD have to wait to see what is added with more HD feeds on In Demand this year. Still it does not seem like big cable systems like comcast will even have the added HD feeds.

    no new schedule yet.

    Sounds good, but doesn't mean that we will see anything like this on DirecTV. We will still probably get the old screen that shows the scores and what channel(s) the games are on. We will probably just see it some of the time, like before, and the scores delayed.

    Won't the one (first) HNIC game that is broadcast on NHLN US be in HD? It was last year.

    I'd love to have it the way it was several seasons ago when the NHLN US showed both games of HNIC in HD every week. IMHO the NHLN US programming has gone down the tubes ever since John Shannon left the NHL as executive vice-president of programming and production.

    You must ask for discount.
    Customer since only 2009 and got free NFL Sunday tickets (actually didn't ask for it, they called me while at work to offer it to me) and $90 off NHL CI (6 * $15).

    Ok, so I'm assuming my guide is messed up since I just did a reboot of my H24 but it's showing both CBC games on Saturday night in HD on the Center Ice channels?! Like I said, I'm assuming my guide populated wrong but it's nice seeing those games listed in HD on the guide right now!

    So I went and checked my other receiver in the living room that I didn't reboot and it's listing the games in HD too. It's channel 770-1. This could be some great news! Are you guys seeing this too?

    interesting indeed. I do see it on my receiver. It clearly say "HD"... I still think it's an error since it doesn't show online and if they got the CBC HD feeds for Saturday night then why don't they have the CBC HD feed for Thursday night game which furthermore is the season opener (MTL - LEAFS). It is SD only for Thursday according to the web and my receiver.
    Time will tell!
