in round 1 games are for the most part on local RSN's only some are NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, and NHLN only.

 

In Round 2 and later they may not want to use nhl network much as they can end locking out local fan's who don't get that channel at all or need to buy a sports pack to get it.

 

Also why you want to keep the old choice extra

I guess in short it won't be good for me if the Rangers go into OT.

NHL network

 

 

Ken Daniels, play-by-play guy for the Red Wings, is doing game 1 with Pierre McGuire.

good, then Pierre can continue his very serious bromance with Ryan McDonaugh

Actually every game is available nationally. Since Center Ice ends at the end of the regular season now, they had to put all if round one on a national network. Back a few years ago, games not available nationally were on CI, which for me was critical since I'm out of market for the Wings.

I hadn't checked it before because my RSN is showing the Tampa/Montreal game, but CNBC is showing the CBC feed of the same game -- and it's not blacked out for me.  Sweet.

They announced on NBCSN that the beginning of the Ducks/Stars game would be on NHL network.  But it isn't yet.....

 

I hate the first couple of days of the playoffs.....

It would have been, except the Pans/Jackets game ended before the Ducks/Stars game started, so there was no overlap.

 

NBC has, in my experience, done a poor job communicating where games will be in case of overflow.  Sometimes you hear that a game will start on another network when it turns out to be unnecessary, while other times you don't learn about the overflow coverage until after the late game has started.  I try to be proactive and anticipate the possibility of overflow coverage, setting up manual recordings on NHL Network (for example(, so I don't have to do any unnecessary channel flipping.

I don't understand why NBCSN isn't using their overflow channel every night for the double header games. This would prevent people from having to switch over the NHLN and then back again once the first game is over, also would help those who would want to record that specific game. They could set it up to record on the overflow channel and not have to worry about switching back and forth, especially if they're not home.

And so much for D* mirroring CNBC on 220-2.

Other than that, are you guys enjoying the games? I am, some great games so far. :)

If I remember correctly, the overflow channel (220-1) was provided on days that had four games scheduled at night, which meant it was possible for all games to be going on at once.  With only three cable networks covering the NHL playoffs, an outlet needed to be provided for the fourth game should they all overlap.  That never actually happened, though, so 220-1 was never actually needed.

 

It would absolutely be convenient for the second half of a doubleheader to have its own feed for DVR recording, but that's not how these channels are programmed.  ESPN works exactly the same way, having people switch to ESPN2 or ESPNEWS or ESPNU or even ESPN3.com for overflow coverage of games.  Do not expect a channel, who prefers live viewership, to make it convenient for the DVR user.

 

Personally, I worked around this by setting up recordings on NHL Network whenever the potential existed for overflow.  On same days I needed it, but on other I was able to trash the recording without viewing it.  I had enough tuners on my HR44-500 to record everything I wanted, including NHLN.

Why can't NBCSN use the ALT feed for overlaps like some RSN's do.

 

Some RSN trun the alt feed to be safe if there is a small chance of over lap and it's the comcasts own CSN's that do that.

 

at least give dish, direct, u-verse the reverse mirror alt feeds so there viewer can see all games as right now they have NHLNET in a higher tear and or not at all.

 

NBCSN says that people in CHI and MIN will get auto moved to that game but others will not get it at all??. Right with the on screen stuff saying all games to all viewers.

 

So there are 2 NBCSN feeds but why is overflow on directv not being used?

Overflow goes to NHL network. That's where everyone except Chicago and Minn could get the start of that game. A PITA for DVR users, but I no longer care, since the Wings are done. :(

Did they not in a case? I know that when the multiple overtime game happened, the west coast game was on nbcsn alternate channel even though the nbc people didn't talk about. I don't think they are paying attention to what happens on satellite and are talking to cable people.

actually, here in Chicago, or at least the far north burbs, D* left the Rangers game on 220 last friday through the overtime. Not sure what would have happened had it not ended quick, but ti did end, I think, after the puck drop 40 miles from here.

Tonight's Montreal Boston game on NBC sports has been in the guide as "to be announced".  I set it to record. Now the guide data has changed to show it is Montreal Boston. So because the episode data has changed, it's not set to record. Good thing I checked.

That aggravates the hell out of me.  I have seen it where a game will be on an alternate channel with a time listed of 5pm - 11pm and I set it to record.  Then the game gets closer and they change the time to 5pm - 7:30pm in the guide and my record of the earlier listing gets canceled.  Records should never be canceled due to a guide change, if the wrong thing happens to get recorded, no big deal, you just delete it.  When you miss something, that's a big deal!

Does anyone know what NBC is going to do if today's game goes into the Preakness time slot?  Will they continue to show it, or are they going to switch to NHL-N or NBCSN?
