    Trh, thanks for the schedule, looks great.

    So the reason we can't get preseason games on the RSN's is because D* doesn't have an agreement with the NHL to show them?

    Preseason NHL games have been blacked out for years.

    I used my old sign on from NHL-TV last year, before I resigned back up for CI, and am getting them.

    The original pre-season discussion was referring to watching them via nhl.tv. Apparently there are some pre-season games on nhl.tv, but our DIRECTV CI included access won't allow us to log in until the season starts.

    Thats what it sounds like, which is lame. I guess theres nothing we can do about it though.

    Full disclosure - I did not know that nhl.tv was (finally) included with CI last year. How does one obtain credentials?

    There's a link to sign into NHL.tv if you signed up through your TV provider.

    This is the link we used last season.

    NHL Center Ice Activation

    There were a couple of times during the year I had to "re- authenticate"

    So far this year, I get a "not authorized" message after I enter my DirecTV credentials.

    Won't work til the regular season. I think it's because (at least in my case) we haven't paid anything yet and it can be cancelled until the season starts.

    Still stupid AFAIC.

    NHL CI channels appeared in my Guide this AM.

    Once again, the NHL is the only sports package with the dreaded xxx-1 channel designations for HD.
    In this day and age, wouldn't it make more sense for the SD versions of those channels to carry that designation?

    Edit: Still no mix channel and oddly, on my HR44, 773 does not have a 773-1 counterpart.

    2nd Edit: Just checked again at 10:20PDT and 773-1 appears.

    The dashes are pretty annoying- agreed. Mix channel, I'm not so sure how useful would be really. Hockey is the kind of sport where I need to focus on 1, 2 games max. The mix channel benefits greatly from much slower sports like NFL and MLB.

    My only wish for this upcoming season is that Directv gets us some of the Rogers 4K feeds this year. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    I thought I'd pass this along as I was just able to activate nhl.tv with my Directv login here: Center Ice Login This is the first time I didn't get the "not authorized" message. Good luck all.
