no, some feed they just have to black out the commercials you will see that with a few teams, Ducks, Stars when they use there MY9 feed


Thanks for the info. I hate all of these regulations. IMO, if you pay for the service, you should get the entire broadcast. But then, they make the rules, I don't.

I'm sure they will show the intermission stuff (because they will be "on air") but it is weird they are blacking out the commericals? Wonder why that is?


Well credit where credit is due... A Canadian HD feed!

I hate to say this, but I knew when I read this thread, despite us getting the TSN feed in NHL CI, someone wouldn't be happy. I thought it was going to be, why didn't we get the Canadian HD feed of the Sens, but it was about something I normally skip? :rolleyes: If we continue to get all MSG feeds and Canadian HD feeds when both are Canadian teams, I'll be satisfied.

Yeah, I agree. And the intermission stuff is being shown by the way for the one's who were asking.

I'm definitely happy to see the intermission is not being blacked out. I'll check out HNIC Saturday to see how they handle those games.

We are getting another TSN feed of the Jets game but no HD. Hey two TSN feeds on one night is a major improvement.

These are regional TSN feeds. TSN does the local TV coverage for the Canadiens (in English) and Jets, while SNET does the local TV for the other teams. The NHL schedule refers to the feeds as "TSN-HABS" and "TSN-JETS." Still, I don't think they ever used a "TSN-HABS" feed last year. When Montreal was the only source for a game, they used the French RDS feed instead.

Yes TSN is the local broadcaster for the Jets but the Jets SD feed is the national TSN game tonight. The Montreal HD feed is the regional one.

It looks like we're getting a back haul feed from the Montreal stadium, which is why there are no commercials. Maybe we'll get TSN home feeds this season?

The game's the thing! I don't care if they black out the intermissions as TSN kind of annoys me actually (a little too much of the ESPN attitude) as long as we get some TSN HD. With this kind of bonus and MSG HD back, I am officially resubscribing.

MSG is pulling more crap Rangers @ Islanders HD on MSG and MSG+ but Devils @ Predators MSG+2 (HD only on cable vision)

Next Tuesday night is a bad night for Directv and hockey. NO HD for two games and three others are missing one of them. The feeds exist and are accessible, but we are not worth it:mad:

Roku will have them though and they are pretty darn close with the new software updates:)

Why wouldn't they use the FS-AZ feed like usual?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

They are using FS-AZ for that game. He said there was 2 games without a HD feed at all and 3 games that was missing 1 hd feed. This is one of the three games that is missing one of the HD feeds.

I don't think cable or directv uses OTA feeds when there is a RSN feed for the game.

Now in canada WGN HD (OTA) get's used more as it's a full time channel on there systems up there and on most systems the games on WGN HD are not blacked out and you don't need center ice to see them.

as for Philadelphia Flyers blame comcast. The MLB has the power to force that FEED in HD on to Directv. NBA also has the power to force at least one HD feed per game.

if you guys saw how few HD games are available every night on local cable (comcast / service electric) and on dish network, i think you would be a lot less angry

I agree. I was stuck with comcast up until this past August. NHL CI was terrible. We would literally get one game a night in HD. D* is much better, I just wish they could negotiate and get the Flyers feed!!!

I've used Apple TV to watch NHL games this year. Excellent picture -- not quite the clarity of D* HD feeds, but very acceptable. And, much more stability in the feeds compared to when I watched on a Roku last year. Sounds from a previous poster that Roku has improved their stability this year, and I hope that's the case, because NHL was a mess last year on Roku.

MSG HD is probably my favorite Hockey feed ...Rangers, Islanders, devils, or Sabers ... absolutely sparkling ...

You know what's funny though - the home Sabres game main camera has washed out colors. All their other cameras look great.

I wonder if it's just a camera adjustment on their end?
