NHL GameCenter Live doesn't carry playoff games in the US or Canada.
I'm not sure that is true. I've had CI since '98 and have watched 1st round games on it every year.
I have Dish and NHL-N does NOT go dark after CI goes dark.
This is the first year NBC has full coverage of every playoff game, there is definitely no playoff coverage on CI.
from the nbc conference call today
Q. Gentlemen, two questions. Perhaps Sam Flood or John Miller. With the doubleheader, with Detroit?Nashville goes past the 3:00 slot, what is the contingency plan for that?
SAM FLOOD: We go to the home markets for the second game.
People freaking out about overflow seem to forget the NHL playoffs existed before several channels carried the games. Relax and deal with it.
will the guide updated to tell what game are where?, like Wednesday on CNBC will its say Detroit @ Nashville?
Must have updated overnight, because mine has that now.
What if a meteor strikes MSG during game? I'm concerned we wouldn't be able to watch the end.
but only NBCSN and NHL network have alt feeds and the NHL network alt slot is now MLB network alt.
but before round 2 was on the rsn's and now this it will not be and CNBC does not have a ALT feed. NHL network (alt feed slot is now MLB Network alt)
I believe that the NBC branded networks have national exclusivity in the USA. According to the D* website, NHL CI is now out of season. This also indicates that the RSN feeds will only be on locally (not nationally via NHL CI) and will be blacked out to those with SportsPack.
In prior years, NHL CI extended to the end of the 2nd round. This year, NBC has a different deal.
The only networks with doubleheaders are NBC and NBC Sports Network. CNBC and NHL Network have one game per night at most. No overflow issues on either of those channels, though NBC could decide to offload overflow coverage to either network if the schedule permits (ESPN does this sometimes).
I noticed in the DirecTV guide for tomorrow night (4/11) that NBCSN has the Flyers/Penguins on 603 from 7:30-10pm (ET) followed at 10:30 by the Kings/Canucks. But Kings/Canucks are also listed on 604 & 604-1. I'm assuming they are doing that to cover themselves in case of an overtime? Good planning; lets see how it is executed throughout the playoffs.
One cool thing is that all three channels (NHLN, NBCSN, CNBC) are available for streaming on the iPad app.
if it's any thing like the past few year Directv will end up having a better ver of NBCSN then cable even comcast systems.
First game of the playoffs, first overtime. It will be interesting to see if NBCSN opens up the alternative feed for the west coast game if the first game is still going at 10:30
Well, they've got the alternate feed set to be used in the guide, and it will need to be used.
It's interesting, CNBC is on "basic cable" here while NBCSN and NHLN are on a higher digital tier.
