For me it looks like NHL GameCenter next year if Directv is going to play the no HNIC or Canadian feeds this year.

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...


Yeah I was thinking the same thing about CBC going on 769. They had better not miss those big games!

I wonder if it's worth sending an email or calling the sports dept to ask. Probably not

Interestingly enough I found this dtv schedule link on a search

http://www.directv.c...assetId=1800012

If you put in your zip code it shows the games for Saturday and it is indeed showing the cbc games on 769. That is a good start, but hopefully they get the real guide updated soon

Sorry Steve but that link is for the 2011-12 NHL CENTER ICE Schedule.

Check the date that shows up after you enter your zip code.

Looks like the DirecTV schedule hasn't been updated with the newly-released schedule, yet. It's returning the 2013 schedule when you put in your ZIP code, but it's the original schedule as if there had been a full season.

Actually, when I enter my zipcode it does give me the CBC games on 769 and that's all it shows. On the TV guide it shows other games but not the CBC games.

I realize that this will have been a bit of a scramble to get everything in place, but is it too much to ask that they would be showing all the games and that these would be properly displaying just a little more than 24 hours before the games start?

Apparently, at least in North Carolina, Time Warner Cable customers can buy Center Ice for only $50. Why is it more expensive on DirecTV?

Hard to say. Boxing PPVs are $10 more for HD when on many cable providers it's HD for the regular price. They charge $10 more because they can apparently.

Yes I guess I should have highlighted the "put in your zipcode" part :)

It still looks to be incomplete as of this morning. It's strange that the CBC games are listed there and no other games are listed, yet on the TV guide, it's the exact opposite with all the other games populated.

You'd think the systems would be somehow connected...

One reason might be that you get a lot more games in HD with DirecTV.

Hope you are right! I'll be skeptical until I see it properly listed. Title not available doesn't exactly fill me with confidence!

In the past, CBC games generally took longer to appear in the guide on the CI channels than the other games. I think this is because more than one game is on the same channel, so the typical 6-hour time blocks DirecTV likes to use won't work. It seems to me that the listings for the other games are auto-generated while the CBC games seem to be added manually (I don't know if this is actually the case, but I have gotten that impression).

Anyway, it did not surprise me at all that the CBC games were missing when the guide data first showed up, because I've seen it before numerous times. It's only more noticeable now because the listings are being built 1-2 days before the games are played instead of several days in advance.

It is my understanding that NBC is streaming the games on their website.

Can I ask a favor here, please?

I'm as excited as everyone to have hockey back, but....

Can we please, PLEASE keep all game discussion and results away from here and in the below thread in the "Sports Programming and Events" forum?

http://www.dbstalk.c...=206707&page=18

I DVR lots of games for viewing the following morning, and I know many west coast fans DVR early games while still at work.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
cmasia
