If the NHL salvaged this season, and charged any amount, I'd unsubscribe. If they had it free then it would be a start in handing out the many olive branches they need to fix things with fans.

And cut their financial throats?

Yeah, sounds like the kind of stupidity the NHL would do.

Always smart to give your product away when you claim financial distress.

Really, what does it matter to you? Have fun Caring too much... Thanks for your opinion though, about everything.


Now, tell us why we should be paying more for our satellite service and why we should like it. Cause, ya know, it's them and not the mighty Direct TV and their pristine PQ. :)

The quality of the product (NHL and DirecTV) should matter to paying customers. The finances of the businesses has a direct impact on the product. So yes, we care.

Thanks for posting the insider numbers letting us know exactly how free Center Ice would obliterate the NHL. Appreciate it.

And the quality of the product in the past has been stellar. Sometimes the Direct TV supporters of this site get me very excited to leave D* for good. The zealotry exhibited is bit over the top for my blood especially at our annual rate raise point(now)..

Rumour:

@JoshRimerHockey

If and when a new CBA is signed, word on the street is the NHL will make Centre Ice free for the season.


That's not the word on the street. It was a suggestion in many articles a while back as one of the ways to win fans back after a lockout.

Here's one: http://bleacherrepor...-resumes/page/2

Will it happen? I doubt it but it wouldn't hurt.

Just exactly how many people do you think subscribe to this? Because if you think it's NFLST numbers you're way wrong. While it's difficult for hockey fans to understand, most people are uninterested.

Just look as the "news." We could go days at a time without hearing a peep out of anyone. If it were any other sport you'd be flooded with stories.

Everything. NHLDirectTVLovefest! Yum yum.


Anyway,
I'll gladly pay for it if I have to even though I'm not looking forward to it. MLS season starts in March and at this point I'm more into the idea of that. Just adding the bit about me paying because I'm not expecting or wanting some kind of free handout. I am expecting a reduction in the package rate though like I would imagine many are at this point in the game.

From a business standpoint, I don't think NHL CI will - or should - be free.

But it would make a lot of sense to offer a bundled package - this season with next season for a discounted price.

And if they don't do that, the price for this season should be at least 50% less than original season price. I think $179 was the number for the 82 game season.
$79 would be a nice compromise for the 48 games they are discussing.

I'm hoping they play this season, simply because I can't watch basketball anymore, college or pro, and I need a sport to carry me through until baseball season!

Happy New Year, everyone!

True this! Watching the WJC has been fun as per usual though. RNH and Canada will without a doubt take the gold this year.

Even more reason to not give it away. They don't have the financial stability to give away ANYTHING. Take in no money for half a season then give away product when you start incurring costs. To what end? The idea of free previews is to get people to pay when the preview ends. Giving away a season does nothing for them. The few hardcore fans they have that pay for it now will pay for it when it starts again. Not to mention any money that Comcast, Verizon, DirecTV, etc., have to incur. The NHL is going to cover their costs and profit loss, too? Why? To say they are sorry?

Wasn't supposed to. It's called nonsense. You're simply one of those DBStalkers who cares way too much about Direct TV and whom I don't care about really have any kind of extended conversation with. That is that.

You asked why it matters and you received an answer. Perhaps you can explain why you believe it shouldn't matter, in your opinion.

Another poster who I care not to converse with. Hoosier, whatever my answer is you are already right in whatever your response would be. Rest assured.. You got this board on lock... Direct TV does have some "real" HD. Yes sir.

I asked in Jest really. I didn't truly give **** about his response. !rolling.. Gigglegigglesnortsnort.

Let us get this NHL season started.

Real HD, what a card. Whatever makes one sleep at night. Hopefully the Detroit Red Wings will be playing soon and Direct TV will give em to you with the best possible PQ.. Perhaps you'll get to see some games as well.
