    Probably these channels will be used for English Premier League overflow, as planned when NBC and NBC Sports start showing the game sin the near future.

    Maybe but this is for NHL playoff games that are shown back to back on NBCSN in case the first game is still going while the second game is starting.

    CNBC is airing Stanley Cup Playoff games, so it would be nice to have the two channels side-by-side.

    They didn't bother to use it last night when Wild-Hawks went to OT. Instead they shifted WIngs-Ducks to NHLN.

    That's because DTV didn't have the channel ready. The NBC alt feed was lit up, DTV just did not have it. It will be used in the future.

    I don't see D* listed on the NBCSN cell phone app, can't watch games while we're away.

    No NBC and directv messed up the blackouts in flipping the game over to NHLNET and now the ALT feed is filling in just in case.
