    Lots of new events added in the Guide, including hockey. Now fully using 105 and 106.

    Sounds like Altitude was serious about doing 4K events.

    As a longtime Center Ice subscriber (principally a Flyers fan and therefore doomed to virtually-eternal disappointment), I greatly am pleased about the return of 4k hockey to DirecTV. Many years ago – when residing in Colorado Springs – I would attend a few Colorado Rockies (the NHL, not MLB, variant) games each year so it especially is exciting to witness a game involving a Denver-based hockey team.

    I have an HR54/500 with a C61K, and my guide says "To be announced" on both for ch105 & 106 for as far ahead as it'll go. Perhaps a reset will fix it? I've been waiting a long time for hockey in 4k!

    EDIT: Resetting fixed it, lol

    Excited to hear about hockey but my excitement is somewhat tempered by the fact that the one NHL telecast from VGK last season was blacked out to me even though I have the sports package. Hopefully that will not happen to me for Saturday’s telecast...

    I know its a bit shy of 3pm ET, but when I put on ch. 106, I'm getting the 721 error. I subscribe to both NHL CI and sportspack, so shouldn't I get the game? Anyone else getting the same? This sucks!

    Maybe it’s only for the Denver market?

    Wondering this as well. The info says Altitude sports subscribers can enjoy the game.....I do get that channel tho, lol. Id rather not call DTV, so I'll try a refresh/reboot just to see....

    I have NHL CI & the Sports Pack too and I'm getting the same error. I've gotten 4K Altitude Nuggets game before (I also have NBA LP) I know the original Altitude press release mentioned out of market viewing with NBA LP but the release was about the Nuggets game. Hopefully this is resolved at some point for CI subs.

    Refresh did nothing. I guess I'll call 'em just to see what they say, but sure not gonna hold my breath ;)

    I'll post again if I actually find out anything

    Yeah I am blacked out too in the Birmingham Alabama Designated Market Area. Are the blackout rules somehow different in the NHL versus the other pro sports? I’ve got the Choice Xtra Classic package with the Sports Pack.

    Same crap happened to me last year with the NHL 4K telecast!

    Its not so much different blackout rules, the majority of NBA games in 4K have been nationally televised NBA TV games. NHL Network / NBC / NBC SN doesn't produce any 4K games, if they did you should get them. This game is regional / out of market so as a result should only be available in the Denver area and those with the NHL Center Ice package (Not getting it with NHL Center Ice here)

    Is Altitude part of the Fox Sports group or separate? If what you say is true regarding NHLCI that would definitely induce me to add Center Ice if I could get the occasional game in 4K!

    Altitude is a regional sports network, but is not owned by FOX, it is owned by the Nuggets/Avs. I wouldn't go and add NHL CI yet as I am not getting the game in 4K, just normal HD with a NHL Center Ice subscription. Hopefully at some point 4K games will be included with CI.

    I’ve been on the phone for 45 minutes now. Lady tells me there is no such channel as 106!

    I think this is the last straw. Time to fire D*. I’ve been a customer since 1997
