I emailed Directv about this, asking them to put HD games on channel 95. The response surprised me a little:
Thanks for writing about NHL Center Ice. I understand that getting NHL games in HD is important to you .Please be advised that you may get some NHL games in high definition (HD) on Ch. 90-99. For example, when Versus broadcasts a game in HD, we may carry the HD feed on Ch. 96. However, NHL Center Ice subscription does not include games in HD.
I feel sure I've seen games on 95 this year other than Versus - local Fox Sports broadcasts. Am I imagining this?
The year before the lockout, when the NHL was on ESPN, I recall getting quite a few playoff games in HD. It's disappointing 3 years later to have things moving backward when HD technology has advanced so much. The NHL needs to get back on a real sports network.
