Yeah I just saw it too, weird that they would have an ad for Fibe TV which isn't even available in Winnipeg.


and a TSN habs holding page at the end??

DID TSN just put the jet's feed on the TSN habs channel?
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

This may prove where Directv is getting their Canadian Center Ice feeds. I have a Shaw Direct system, next to my Directv system and the same thing was happening over there. There were two feeds for that game and both were the same, broadcasting on their Center Ice package.

How does that prove anything? I guarantee you that DirecTV is NOT getting their CI feeds from Shaw Direct. TSN probably just did one broadcast of that game and aired it on both of their regional feeds. They wouldn't be the first to do that.

This makes sense. I doubt they would send two crews there. They probably just overlay the TSN-JETS or TSN-HABS material on top of the same base feed.

It was certainly the Jets broadcasters calling the game. Dennis Beyak, the Jets play by play guy is one of the best in the business. He should be on Hockey Night in Canada IMHO...

Yes because it's a national TSN feed. DirecTV does not include these in the NHLCI package.

I would love to just have someone from the DirecTV sports department give us the technical details on how all this works (or doesn't work). I don't understand how they can have a TSN regional HD feed one day - which implies that they have the equipment capability to do this - and then not be able to show HD feeds of a TSN national game the next day. :nono:

If TSN is anything like ESPN, they may be charging a boatload of money for the rights to use their feeds. DirecTV has never used a national TSN HD feed and has only occasionally picked up a regional HD feed from them. To my knowledge, InDemand is exactly the same way with TSN HD.

In the month of February, InDemand's HD schedule has only two TSN feeds, both of which are regional (TSN-JETS):

1. 2/7 Toronto @ Winnipeg (GAMEHD7)
2. 2/28 New Jersey @ Winnipeg (GAMEHD6)

In both cases, TSN-JETS is the only feed InDemand is carrying in HD (they do not use MSG HD). Also, good luck finding a cable system that actually carries enough GAMEHD channels to include those games.

Dual feed HD tonight for Caps/Leafs. SportsNet Ontario looks excellent in HD.

To night Directv plans to have CBC HD and the CSN Chi HD remap.

also on the directv web site they have the (Blackhawks Feed) and (Sabres Feed) listed but the CBC feeds don't have (team name on them)

InDemand just has CBC HD.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Not that I'll be able to see it anyway (blacked out in the Boston area) but is the NHLN telecast of the BOS-TOR game the CBC (HNIC) feed or the NESN (Bruins) feed?

DirecTV seems to have a thing for the Leafs. Have they had every Leafs feed in HD so far this season? Haven't noticed if they also got the Leafs TV feed (doubt that one.)

DirecTV doesn't usually carry LeafsTV feeds in SD much less HD. As has been explained here before the Leafs benefit from the fact that DirecTV is required to carry Sportsnet in HD because of the terms of the MLB Extra Innings contract.

The NHL so far at least doesn't make their "partners" carry all HD feeds of games.

Might have something to do with the fact that Toronto has an MLB team and DirecTV already has in place what they need to get HD feeds from Toronto.

It is true that the Blue Jays are ultimately the reason why DirecTV has acess to SportsNet Ontario HD, but it is most definitely NOT an MLB requirement. Years ago, DirecTV charged an extra fee to EI subscribers to get HD games (it was called SuperFan). That fee went towards the extra cost needed to access HD games from various sources, including SportsNet Ontario. The MLB does require broadcasters to make their HD feeds available, but it is still up to the providers to purchase the necessary equipment and/or license fees to use the feeds.

Hockey Day in Canada is on Feb the 9th. I'm wondering what if any coverage we will receive in the United States of Hockey. ;)

Because on the regular Habs HD channel and the Jets HD channel, they had different broadcasts. For the record, Canadian regional broadcasts must have separate broadcast feeds. You can see that clearly, when the Western teams play each other and have separate broadcasts, on Sportsnet.

I don't know about DirecTV's plans, but as of now Sports iNDemand only has the early games starting at 2pm, and then the late game at 10pm. No indication of any of the extended coverage starting at noon.

NHL Network, which usually carried the full block from 12pm - 6pm has NOTHING this year except Hockey Tonight at 6:30pm and the 7pm CBC game. They even have Coyotes @ Sharks at 4pm which is likely going to result in Hockey Tonight being joined in progress.

It's GREAT to see that the "Celebrating the Game" piece of Hockey Day in Canada is showing up in the on screen guide for noon on Saturday, Thank you DirecTV!
