Ok, This is the new thread for the new season all topics relating to NHL in any shape manner feel free to put in this thread.

Starting 9/1/2012, will start the NHL Center Ice usually thats when directv starts taking orders.

Now this year we could have a strike again.

NHL could Lockout on 9/15/2012

Talks are going on now which is positive and both sides so far are saying its productive so lets pray they get it done.

the cap is at 70,200,000 this year alot of teams are re shaping there teams.

so far Minnesota is making alot of noise they spent over 68 mill so far.

so will see how things go and let it rock.

this thread is for both directv, dish, all fans so 1 place for all things hockey.

hey jimmy n flyers fans.

with all the flyers did or their lack of doing here is an updated list of where we stand.

http://capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=24

the cap is now at 70,200,000 for the season now that could change with the new CBA.

flyers have about 7.8 mil to spend and i have no clue who we can get or trade for with all the transactions that have happened and free agents that have already signed with new teams.

minnesota is the hot team right now, they are just signing players like crazy.

i paid 178 for the NHL season.

I also had NHL GCL, that I got for my travels.


DTV does lack canadien HD, outside of that its a good service.

I can get HD quality with GCL.

having very good high speed and bandwitdh helps the stream.

however there are some nights when i have to lower the stream to a feed that streams better.

I would like to see Directv, get a new deal with NHL CI and make a game mix channel kinda like MLB EI.

Also prehaps make a redzone channel but hockey edition, not sure what to call it.

Prehaps they get a spin off with NHL network where a host goes from game to game etc.

and yes the most important req more HD from canada

I don't think a "red zone" channel would work for hockey, maybe for power plays, but the game is too fast for that.

well prehaps have like TSN or NHL network use part of the studios for special in game look ins at games when they are in the special moments of a game, the heart pounding moments.


NHL should actually take the NHL on the fly show and make that the

NHL CI channel that could be used like a redzone type channel.

Being a Canucks fan, no Canadian HD may be a deal breaker for me. $200 is a lot to pay for a season of SD streams, especially when Vancouver is the closest big city. Comcast up here carries all of the CBC Vancouver channels in HD and TSN, to boot.

Does anyone know if Verizon FIOS carries NHLCI? I'm having a new roof installed and am reluctant to letting D* drill holes through it to reinstall my dish. I thought this would be a good opportunity to give FIOS a try, since I have considered numerous times in the past, just have not pulled the trigger. When I go to their website, they do not list NHLCI as a sports option. I don't know if that's because it's out of season or they don't carry it. A quick Google seems to identify a number of people with FIOS and no NHLCI. If they do carry it, how does it compare to D* regarding HD coverage of games? Thanks.

Does anyone know what would happen to D* early bird CI subscribers if the season is shortened? If they start billing now, but the season starts late, would they typically lower the price for the remainder of the season? Would we get credited the difference?

I'm set for my first autorenewal, and I'm wondering if I should cancel in case the CBA talks don't get settled before the season starts.

Thanks.

A bit late to this thread but last time this happened there were no charges on my bill. As for the poster asking about FiOS, yes, it's available but with limited HD.

Given that both sides of the CBA dispute seem to be intimating that they expect it to be settled (hopefully) soon, I think I'll leave the autorenewal as is for now. Let's hope that the posters who have said that d* tends not to start billing until the disagreements are over are correct. I sure would hate to pay for something that may not exist.

On another note, has anyone heard of d* perhaps getting access to Canadian HD feeds? Has it been a physical limitation or a contractual one that has kept the feeds to SD?

Not all feeds that we received last year from Canada were SD. There were some in HD. I'm having a memory lapse right now, but I think all the first games of HNIC on the NHL Network were in HD. Second game moved to CI channels and HD was sadly lacking on those games.

I think you're right. I seem to recall seeing Don Cherry's wardrobe in all its HD glory on a few occasions last year. But I also remember missing out on more than one late game last season simply because I couldn't bear to watch the SD feed after watching 2 or 3 other rounds of games that evening in full HD.

If they could just add the Philly feed and the rest of the Canadian feeds in HD, I think d* would have a perfect product on its hands.

They do have "NHL On The Fly" on NHLN, which has live look-ins of games and highlights. I think that's the closest we'll ever see to the an NHL "Red Zone" channel. And most everyone on this forum, seems to complain about them airing "NHL On The Fly", instead of a live game (except me). So it seems like hardly anyone really wants an NHL "Red Zone" channel.
