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. ;)

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.

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!

We are getting a national TSN feed of Stars and Oilers tonight. The Bruins Habs game which is in the last minute is actually on the channel now.

No it was just SD. I was just surprised it was there at all. For those of us who follow Canadian teams SD feeds are better than no feeds at all.

Here is a link from the NHL that confirms coverage on Hockey Day in Canada as part of the NHL Center Ice Package.

Yes, I'm very grateful the NHL put this on NHLCI this year. I actually prefer this to when it's been on the NHL network.

I suspect we'll miss a few minutes at 6:30 because the NHL Network are showing the Coyotes and Sharks at 4 and that game probably won't be over at 6:30. And we'll probably a few minutes after the 7 pm game is over and before the late game starts. But those are fairly minor problems.

Again, having access to this is wonderful.

Funny thing was at 6:30 they never pulled the plug for the news. It was kinda interesting to watch. At least I thought it was.


As for Friday CBC, wow. I had taken someone to see the GreenDay Broadway show and was not at the homestead to view.. Did get to see some I the Dallas at Vancouver game though. Dallas does look good this season.
