I know NHL is a very small viewership, but WHY does DirecTV repeatedly show Center Ice NHL games as being available in HD and then only show them on the SD channel? I'm a Preds fan, probably one of the smaller viewerships of the already small market, but they advertise it as being in HD and I guess just don't have the bandwidth to show it, so we're screwed again. The really bad thing is my buddies with Dish always have HD while I'm sitting here stuck with SD It has been a few years since I followed the different sat compaies and even this forum. Last I knew though, Direct had more available bandwidth, so I can only suspect they are diverting it to PPV??? Tonight I checked other games and neither of the two feeds of the Rangers game was in HD nor was the single Flyers game.
If it was one or two games a year, it would be one thing. Tonight is at least the 4th time this year though, so it will end up being a significant number of games... again.
I know we have no recourse, but man it seems like they ought to refund part of your subscription fee or something and, again, why does only Direct have this problem and Dish never does?!! So frustrating...
There, I feel better.
