    Anyone know if this is supposed to be included in the Familiar Ultra package (spanish equivalent to Choice Xtra)?

    The content looks pretty much the same to me...Except for the commercial I saw at 8:59 AM Eastern for a US Senator!

    thank god for hockey 24/7. this is a great great day for hockey fans. i must say i am surprised though that they launched the sd and hd channel on the same day, figured the hd channel wouldn't come out till december for so.

    so do you for sure have to have Plus to get this? I've only got Total Choice. I'd like to have NHL but I'm not gonna pay any more for it.

    I am getting NHL in both SD and HD, the HD picture is very good. But like others, my audio is way out of sync with video...first time I have seen this on any channel...

    Just got off the phone with a general CSR and a "Tech" csr. Neither had any idea as to why the SD signal is getting thru and the HD is not. They reauthorized my account and resent info to my receivers, but no luck. THe tech guy said he is sending the info over to the "main command center", as this was the first time he heard of the problem and did not have any talking points to share with me regarding fixing this. Seeing that this just launched today, I suspect that bugs are present.

    To add more intrigue - my HR20-700 was updated overnight to 0X1B4. Don't think that means much, as I did a reset this morning on that unti, as well as a reset on the HR20-100 in my Family room. Neither was successful in obtaining the HD signal after the reboot...

    I don't even know what kind of programming to expect on this channel, but I am already giddy to go home and check it out. This is possibly the greatest channel of all-time.

    At this point in time the US version of the NHL Network seems to be picking up the Canadian schedule, which is just fine with me! :)

    The Canadian version of the channel has a website which is here....

    There is a Great Pumpkin. I waited in the pumpkin patch all night last night, fell asleep and when I woke up, there it was. The HD is clear and bright (some studio feed at lower def, but an okay attempt to upconvert). Hockey highlights in HD are awesome. And surprisingly enough, SD channel is there as well. I do not have Home Ice pak, but do have grandfathered Pre - Choice with HD and Sports Pak. 24/7 Hockey, and a live game on tonight to check quality of delivery, unless I'm blacked out. Sometimes I wonder why I spend the extra for the Sports Pak. Anyway, thanks D* for the delivery. Now, keep them coming.

    Sweet. So here's a question, I see that the Columbus vs. L.A. game tonight is listed as being available both on NHL Network and channel 94 in HD. Will this actually be 2 different feeds, or does the carriage on NHL Network just mirror a broadcast from an RSN?

    Same problem here. I get the SD feed, but not the HD feed. A call to D* will take place shortly.

    Just a thought..

    The NHL Network that Directv broadcasts (from reports read here) is exactly the same as the Canadian version.

    The NHL Network is part of TSN (the Canadian ESPN).

    TSN broadcasts HD hockey games in Canada during the week, some of which are shown on Center Ice in SD.

    Obviously the infrastructure is in place to receive the HD signal from The NHL Network / TSN.

    If my logic is correct, Directv should then be able to show HD feeds of TSN hockey games on Center Ice.

    Let's do it.
