    In past years I believe VS and maybe NHL Network covered preseason (and the regular season) games in Europe. The last few years there has also been a sports pak free preview during the preseason and we got to watch some games.

    otherwise there is no CI in preseason.

    In the past preseason games were not blacked out on the RSNs for Sports Pack subscribers.

    The regular season ones are usually on one of those stations but I believe he is talking about the preseason games? I believe I remember watching the preseason Europe games free on NHL.com last year?

    I know the two Ranger preseason games in Europe two years ago were on either VS or NHL Network. I watched on my tv sans computer.

    So as the season approaches some people mentioned they noticed on their bill that the early bird special is 170 bucks. I didn't have NHLCI last year but I think I heard that it was $150 for the early bird <= anyone can confirm? If true it means that the package is increasing by 13% !!! At this rate it would be over $315 in 5 years...

    For such an increase (if true) they better have some new features. NHL on the fly in HD would not count in my opinion as many of us already have nhl network without the package, well I do at least...

    Yeah, I remember when Sunday Ticket was about $150, now its over doubled that. The one thing about Center Ice is that Direct doesn't have exclusive rights to it. Whereas, Direct does have exclusive rights (until 2014) to Sunday Ticket which allows direct to dictate its price. That being said, it probably will climb to over $200 in the next few years.

    As others have mentioned, it went from $163.80 in 2009 to $171.80 in 2010. So that's $8 or a 4.9% rise over last year.

    Very few Philly games on CSN were in HD on NHL CI. It was only when another CSN affiliate carried the Philly CSN feed and that might only been games on NHLN. You can read through this thread for more details [link].
