    Center Ice package is negotiated with the NHL, not the individual teams.

    NHL Network has never produced a 4K game.

    I believe ATT Sportsnet Pittsburgh and Vegas had them in the past.

    I could be wrong on this but from what I remember, it was games from regional sports networks that were put on NHL network the same way NBAtv does with random games of the week. But either way my point is there used to be NHL games in 4k on Directv and they stopped last season. And I’m not sure what the reason was. There also used to be MLB network games in 4k but also stopped last season. The MLB Network baseball games in 4k looked much better than the Fox baseball games in 4k.

    Actually there was one NHL 4K offering from Vegas last year. I was all excited about seeing my first NHL game in 4K, having just gotten my C61K installed a few months earlier. So I faithfully tuned in at the prescribed time and....SAW NOTHING BUT A BLACK 721 SCREEN! That was the beginning of my unhealthy obsession over 4K hockey blackouts :rolleyes:

    I didn't care about the commercials. The MLB Network broadcast was just much sharper than the fox broadcast since the fox broadcast is only upscaled to 4k and not native 4k.

    Were any of the Astros games in 4K? Maybe the 4K aided their sign stealing effectiveness? :p

    It was from NBC Sports Chicago and it looked good and sounded good despite the fact my receiver detected a Dolby Digital signal but there was no output to my rear speakers.

    Does NBC Sports broadcast 4K on its apps for Roku, Apple TV, or Samsung Smart TVs ?
    Fox Sports does on its apps. But not sure if they do on there Samsung 4K tv app.

    Don’t know how many snowboarding fans we have here but y’all should check it out regardless on 105 this week. Pic is PHENOMENAL! If you are yearning for that “looking out the window” effect that’s your ticket!

    Well folks today marks the nationwide roll out out of AT&T’s new streaming service. AT&T has made it clear that moving forward the primary focus of their TV marketing efforts will be centered on the streaming service, and the sat service will basically be an afterthought. Do you guys think we will all soon be Dish Network subs or do any of you see possible alternatives?
