    Except that the guide, yes DirecTv's guide listed Sabres vs. Leafs on NHLN, so someone at DirecTv knew about this change.

    So I opt for reason #2

    No idea what the contracts say. They may need to buy an extra game if it was not on the list. It is possible they cannot just turn on a game that was originally scheduled for the NHL network. Rights to games are not simple.

    A pithy answer to the thread question would be InDemand or Roku...

    On a serious note, the base contract provided for an SD feed for the Habs-Caps game. Other contractual considerations from the league and Directv would have provided the HD feed. It was missed.

    Maybe SR could do a mea culpa and then we could move on....

    You're just trolling, or don't know how life works I you think you deserve a full refund for missing a game. Anyone who thinks that deserves to work at their low-paying job,

    Hi Cariera.

    You may be right, but the guide info for NHLN comes from Tribune Media, while the mapping of CI channels and what should be blacked out comes from the NHL.

    Either way, it was an amazing lack of communication.

    You want what to never happen again? That you miss a game? By what parameters? Every game? Every game that gets bumped from a national channel? Define what you are asking for. And it will happen again. You are not guaranteed any specific games or number of games.

    In general, stop throwing a tantrum.

    Then put your money where your mouth is and don't subscribe to Center Ice next year, since you know it continually happens every year, or better yet leave Direct TV altogether if you think you can find green on the other side. Relax, it was one game that you missed.

    You are wrong. There have been baseball games I wanted to watch that have not been on and I did not rant and rave. I understand what I bought. You obviously do not.

    Nice insulting someone based on how much their job pays (which of course you have no way of knowing anyway), are you part of the 1% by any chance? The OP has every right to complain about not getting a game he should have gotten, I don't think he's going to get a refund of his CI package but he might get something free for a few months or be thrown some kind of bone.

    Lol at the guy who thinks he deserves a full refund because of missing one game due to a last minute change by the NHL.

    I was happy to get the MSG feed of my Sabres in addition to the NHLN CBC feed. Since I received 1 extra game, I guess I should send them payment for another full season? On a serious note, I would be upset too if they didn't carry a game that I expected to see. Although a full refund is a bit much.

    If someone makes a ridiculous request and is sincere about that request, I question that person's intelligence.

    got $10 bill credit for 6 months and they still say they weren't allowed to show the game...

    Think I'll call Gary Bettman next
