    I have had a hard time receiving a straight answer from Dish whether or not they will put the first two rounds of the NHL playoffs on Center Ice Channels. Does anyone know what the plan is? Thanks.

    I think for all games not on OLN. I think OLN got a deal from the NHL where games on that are not on NHL-CI

    any games that are locally produced (MSG, FSN, etc) will be on CI for the first two rounds.

    I believe that OLN games in the first two rounds are non-exclusive, and will be on CI as long as one of the two teams involved are broadcasting on a local RSN. But that is coming from DishNetwork, so take it with a grain of salt

    Of course, any game on NBC will not be seen on CI.

    Starting with the 3rd round, and until game 3 of the Finals, when NBC takes over, Dish Network subs are sca-rooed. OLN has exclusive rights to the Conference championships and games 1-2 of the Finals.

    Sounds like we're in luck according to the other posts on the board. OLN is back on Dish in time for the playoffs!!!

    Not true, Sat. April 22 has 2 games on NBC, the one not on your local NBC station will be available on NHL CI.

    I did not see a blackout indicated on either NBC game for today.

    Any playoff game on OLN (even if it is broadcasted locally on a different station), is excluded from NHL CI.

    The Avs/Stars game is Blacked out on my dish (Local NBC station showing the game :joy: )
