Looks great. No a hockey fan but I sure they will enjoy it.

Nhl is in choice plus, the package that is $5 extra / mo.

Not included with sports pack.

I watched On the fly, I love the format they use, and it was great on VS during playoffs last year.

This is a nice channel add, D* even got me to upgrade my package to plus with this one.

I have the same audio sync issues, but it is still early.

For those not getting it, try to reauthorize your account...Sorry I lost the link, but:

*You can you to your online account and refresh your service on it. Go to customer service-->troubleshooting-->refresh your services-->check that receiver and click refresh service.

*=(Copied from BMore's post)

Other than the audio sync, awesome channel.

Thanks

I think we just want our hockey and with the season having started already, now just isn't soon enough. However, D* did come through, as they continue this recent trend. The game looked excellent, but I agree about the studio thing. That should not be too hard to improve on.......keep up the good work D*!

I'd call and see what's up.

IMO, if Directv wants to do this right, they should make this channel accessible to ANYONE who purchased the CI package(at least thru the season), regardless if they have the "plus" package or not.

It was on for 1 night as a "preview", then they took it off again.
