    The NHL network picks up HNIC next week so this could be a one week deal, but let's not worry about that let's just enjoy tonight and again Thankyou DirecTV.

    If this is permanent or just a ploy to get me to buy NHL Center Ice? LOL

    Monmouth...
    Maybe they are giving it to us because of the upcoming Fox/D dispute which might take our FSN's from us on 11/1 ?

    I'd wait a week or two if you haven't bought in yet.

    also it seems like WGN SD + a RSN HD feed will used as well. I think last year they only used WGN SD if it was the only feed.

    If CBC HD and Canadian HD feeds start being used all the time, it's going to get awful quiet around here, there will be nothing to complain about :D

    The NHL Network shows the 7pm hockey night in canada game EVERY week...did you not have this channel last year? they just dont ever carry the 10pm game.

    they almost NEVER show a canadian HD feed on CI channels...so dont hold your breath for that..maybe an occasional rogers sports net maple leafs game in HD...but not much else...the rest is SD from canada.

    That was last season. According to the NHL Network schedule there are hardly any HNIC games scheduled this season. First they showed both games, then they dropped the late games, now they are dropping the early games and replacing them with US broadcasts. That's why I'm so interested in whether or not NHL Center Ice will carrying HNIC in HD.

    I am in the New York/Rangers DMA and able to view the HNIC broadcast of the game on channel 770-1. Is this a mistake?

    NHL Network has HNIC next week, but they certainly don't every week. This why it's awesome to have the CBC feed tonight. AND if that wasn't enough, the Leafs beat the Habs in the early game! :)

    Last night was a great step forward. It makes you wonder that the constantly posting the showing of the CBC feed and taking it away was based on a technical glitch that needed to be fixed. I would love for SR to come on line and give a hint if this is a sea change from Directv or a combined effort of Directv and NHL to make HD feeds more accessible. The hit and miss of the sportsnet and TSN feeds follows no logic that I can discern.

    Yes, last night was a major step forward, please DirecTV, please may we have this every week?

    and looking at the schedule for the following week...

    InDemand has Philadelphia in HD all week, but we do not. The flyers are playing lots of Canadian teams which makes it the big SD hole. Also, a few Canadian versus Canadian games. All show up as HD with InDemand. Hopefully, this is a work in progress.
