Yes, with the cooler and longer nights fast approaching, it is time to look forward to the new season.
The national television schedules are posted on NHL.Com for US and Canada. Also, with the new contract between Rogers and NHL, the days of SD feeds should be behind us. The contract provides for 100% HD Center Ice in Canada from a single provider. The only quibbling for us is the capacity issue for Directv. Can they support the 100% feeds available. I will let the techie people answer that one.
Therefore let us see if we hear from someone in the know on the plans for the upcoming year. I do not know when renewal for Center Ice was/is up. This would also make a difference on content and special features. I wonder if the timing of the Center Ice package deal in Canada (along with national TV) has any bearing on the US renewal with providers? If there is a change, then I hope to god that Directv gets to show home and away feeds even if the game is on NHL Network. I hate the graphics taking up the screen on NHL Network. My rant!
Anyway, my Rangers came up just short this past year and I look forward to the new season. The salary cap makes the composition of the team have lots of question marks. This is true for many of the teams.
Go Rangers in HD of course.....
