If the schedule for next week is to be believed

http://sports.direct...CenterIce#day25

There are more dual Canadian SD feeds in NHLCI coming up next week.

The selection of SD feeds is interesting as it looks as if there taking an SD feed of a LeafsTV game which they didn't do on Thursday night even though the Leafs were the home team.

There's even an HD feed for a Montreal Winnipeg game on January 29th.

As I've said before...time will tell.

Interesting - if that happens then does it mean that D* has the hardware capability to get these feeds, and just chooses not to use it, or not to use Satellite bandwidth to show them?

Its great that they have more Canadian HD feeds this week. I'll be watching for your annual post about DIRECTV only offering Canadian HD feeds during the free preview. And once you were locked in, there aren't as many of them.

maybe a raw / wild feed as In demand does not have an TSN HD or TSN 2 HD.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

The Leafs Sabers game to night is on the online NHLCI web schedule, is showing up on the on screen guide but is not on the red button. While you would think that two out of three is a good sign I suspect the absence from the red button really means the Leafs TV feed will not be there tonight.

Oh and by the way..... there is no need for the usual if you want Canadian feeds get a Canadian dish speech that some users always bring up.

Maybe a dumb question, but what's the Red Button?

The red button on the remote that shows you what games are on and what the scores are in real time.

Yeah I've started to use GameCenter when I want to watch Canadian HD and DirecTV Center Ice when it's available. It's OK this season since both are pretty cheap and I wanted to try GameCenter anyways, but I don't know what I'm going doing to pick next year if DirecTV doesn't improve their Canadian HD feeds...

Yep, I am still on the bubble whether or not to sign up for CI once the preview ends, I have GCL but broadcast quality HD looks so much nicer...

Looks like the online NHLCI guide has now removed Leafs/Sabers LeafsTV feed. I'm not at home to confirm on the TV whether it is on there or not..?

It's not but good to see TSN Jets on; Just need to get those HD Flames/Canucks feeds, SD for the Canadian feeds is dreadful!

Are you sure it's TSN Jets and not TSN Habs? I saw an ad for Bell Fibe TV which is only available in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City.

But it seems to be TSN Habs? shared feed?
