    I have E* and I just got the letter about the 2008-2009 CI package price.
    I was just wondering what the D* price is.
    The E* price is NHL Center Ice only early bird pricing: $159.00, $53.00/monthx3 auto pay.

    Thanks.

    I think gas was cheaper too;) Seriously, if that price includes the HD feeds and they don't try to ram this Superfan crap down our throats, I'll be very happy!

    Well I wonder if there will be a " SuperFan " crap to get the HD version of the game...

    There will be no SuperFan for NHL Center Ice.

    NHL sets the price, not D* (if I recall correctly). For other sports packages, there is wiggle room and suggested pricing by the leagues which almost everyone adheres to with possible slight exceptions for things like Early Bird pricing, etc.

    To expand my horizons beyond my local team I may spring for that this year. $159 for tons of games in HD, dual feeds and even some Canadian feeds is a bargain.

    I haven't received my letter yet, but last year it was $149. My question for E* is, are they gonna provide the hd feed of the Buffalo Games this your to their subs. I understand that D* did last year and if E* don't I will be taking up D* on their nfl st offer and adding nhl ci to it.

    Who knows? The fact that we have seen some Sportsnet HD in Extra Innings is a good sign...but I wouldn't bet money on it.

    Yep, Center Ice is a bargain among the sports "passes" with the number of games in HD and dual feeds. And hockey benefits so much by HD.

    Satracer want to comment on this? I'd love to hear that we are going to get sportsnet hd games, and obviously cbchd would be the icing on the cake.

    I can't remember from last year but I think that if the Buffalo feed in in HD E* will carry it. They seemed to carry all the HD they could find sometimes they had four feeds for the same game two in SD and two in HD but there has never been any HD feeds on CI from Canada.
    Some times the NHL network and HDnet, I think that is the name but could be incorrect, carried some HD feeds from Canada ie TSN feed.

    The NHL package is great. I found myself watching a lot more hockey last year, primarily due to the fact of no CSN-NW, so no Blazer basketball.

    Off topic, but I’m curious if the old Seattle DMA will fall into the Blazers region now, thus no 'local' hoops on DirectTV for all NW subs. Ouch.

    How consistent was DirecTV with dual feeds?

    If both were available in HD, were both always shown? Just curious.
