Since when do they have to announce something for an assumption to be made and run with as fact?

Baseless assumptions are your forte.

No one has announced pricing. The NHL was still working on pricing yesterday and free wasn't an option.

Don't forget to cancel by the 18th if you don't want to get locked in. No assumptions there, just fact as of 1/11/13. Even satracer confirms it will be on sale next weekend. Baseless assumptions are that "adjustments" have been made to overturn longstanding Directv policies.

There will be a grace period for auto-renew subs.

When, and for how long? Cite a single source on how this will work so we know this isn't baseless assumption.

I hear ya. I like having one thread instead of 5-6 like we've had in previous seasons. But this one was supposed to be about DirecTV pricing, but it went a little off track. Plus pricing was also being discussed in the other thread.

well notice in the title of the other thread


nhl 2012-2013 thread / NHL Center Ice / All NHL topics


that covers all you need, it works for any provider, so I agree this thread should merge, but that's up to a moderator.

You'd need to have something like a 50% drop rate to break even on what you'd be giving up this year.

Do you how many NHLCI subs there are or are you just guessing?

How many total ? How many have D*?

It is a ratio. Doesn't matter how many there are. If you make the price zero based upon sales for next year, the only way you break even is if half would dump a pay service. Not exactly, of course, but the order of magnitude is about right.
