    I know everyone is getting excited about the NFL starting but I have a question regarding the NHL season pass. I have been away from Directv for a few years and just came back. With all of the talk about HD, I was wondering how this would effect the Centre Ice package. When all of the regional stations offered are in HD, will games being shown on that channel also be available in HD to NHL CI customers?

    Thanks

    I haven't hear anything yet. D* web site still shows 06-07 information. So no help there. And NHL site just says some games in HD with Center Ice but nothing specific.

    I have the CI package and I know last year FSN Florida had quite a few Florida Panther games on channel 96 (MPG4). Actually every game they show as being in HD was on D*. I am hoping they will increase it even more this year. I can't speak for all markets but we had a good selection here in FL.

    Edit: Looks like in Canada, Shaw/Star Choice will have 200 games in HD. Hopefully D* can get a similar deal.

    Thanks for the good info, MikeR.

    I think D* had a lot of HD hockey last year on the spot beams. For example, we had quite a bit of Ducks and Kings out here. The question is if they will make them available nationwide. They also have to compete for bandwidth with HD NBA games, and I'm guessing (sadly) that the NBA will win that battle. But once D11 goes up in January, I think they should have plenty of space for both NBA and NHL. So hopefully we'll get quite a bit.

    But not in HD :( Really sucks that the Sabres MAY be in HD for the 2009-2010 season. I'm getting Center Ice this year solely for the HD games.
