The Oil charge $199.95 for a 16 game package of PPV games. Clearly some of the Canadian teams have a higher opinion of what fees their TV packages should command than most of the US teams.

Not much different from the high price of Sunday Ticket in the US, and it is a lot cheaper in Canada.

Just contacted Directv about a deal and the best they could do, was $59.96 for this shortened season, but they did give me 6 months of Showtime and Starz for free. The CSR told me to call back, after the free preview and there may be a better price, for the rest of the season.

I am sure that half way through the shortened season they will offer the rest of the season at a reduced price, like they usually do at mid season.

That was for games that where not able to fit on the rogers sportsnet channels befor they stated up sportsnet one.

And the teams had to payed for the costs of doing the games and they where not able to put ANY ad's brakes on them do to CRTC rules.

The blackhawks had PPV games for a short time then a long time (years) of next to no games on TV.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

So it is confirmed that on DirecTV, it will be a 2 week free preview of NHL CI?


Website now shows free preview from Jan. 19th through 31st, so a little less than 2 weeks.

Do you happen to know what the Leafs charged for their PPV ? I think it was for indivual games on Leafs tv .

I'm having trouble linking my Roku with NHL GC account. I goto www.nhl.com/roku to enter the code the Roku gives, but there's nowhere to enter it. Anyone else having trouble?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Yes, they are in the process of releasing a new set of apps for GCL for the new season, including Roku and Xbox. As usual, there are no confirmed release dates but I have heard on other boards that they are trying to get them all released by Saturday.

Maybe not all games but I only care about the Blackhawks games and they were all in HD last year except the games played in Canada.

All Blackhawks games are HD and have been for at least the last 3-4 years.

The WGN games on CI have been SD only (WGN feed) NHL network has shown WGN games in HD over the years.

Leafs TV costs subs in the Leafs region of Ontario, $4.99 per month. They usually have about 12 or 13 games during a regular season and do pre and post game shows for all Leafs games. They also show all Leafs games, on a time delay basis, from all providers. They also have a number of the Leafs AHL affiliate, the Marlboro's(Marlies). They also run a number of classic games and also cover Leafs practices. There is other programming, like interviews etc.

Not sure how much longer that this station will be in business. The Leafs were bought and shared with Canada's biggest Cell Phone Companies, Rogers and Bell, both owning sports specialty channels, Sportsnet and TSN.

The games are starting to show up in the guide now but NO CBC HNIC games for Saturday afternoon and night. This is not looking good.

Oh please don't tell me we are taking a step backward.

Maybe it's time for us NHL Center Ice subscribers to go on strike.

770 / 770-1 is now back in the Guide, but Peter305 is correct.

None of the 3 Saturday CBC games are in the current on screen guide.

The Anaheim - Canucks game scheduled at 10:00 east on CBC does appear on 784, but that is probably the FSW feed.

One oddity... The first game on 769 shows a Jets v Bruins game on Monday...Nothing on Saturday or Sunday.

So, perhaps the CBC games still need to be populated.....I hope... I hope... I hope...
