    Yeah, would have loved to see an HD feed for the Leafs game. Leafs TV preferably (I think I've seen it on CI once before?) but at least one :(

    SD is ugly.

    I think it was great, that we got to see the game, on a night that it wasn't broadcast.

    Those of you in the DC area who haven't already heard the news should be pleased to learn that DirecTV will finally carry CSN+ Mid-Atlantic's HD feed on Channel 643-1 (where it's been listed for years but where no programming has ever aired). The Washington Post reports that the HD feed will go live for tomorrow night's NBA game.

    I've always hated it when Caps games aired on CSN+ because the picture was so atrocious. I normally wear eyeglasses when I watch TV, but for games on that channel I almost always leave my glasses off. The picture is so bad that watching with my glasses on causes me severe eyestrain!

    Of course CSN's HD feed isn't all that spectacular anyway, but it still blows away low-def.

    It should be another HD feed for NHLCI subs.

    Last night's Rangers vs Devils game on NBCSN looked bad. It seemed to be off. The players were moving unnatural and PQ was below the usual top quality from MSG.

    I couldn't watch it that way.

    NBCSN always looks relatively soft, the Rangers/Devils game actually looked a tad sharper than usual.

    No CBC Hockey Night in Canada on 770 or 770-1 for the Sabres - Senators game tonight.

    The rep I spoke to said, "Well, since the game is on 771 and 771-1, I guess we did not have the rights to show it on 770".

    Where do they get these people?

    I'm hoping they have this fixed by the 10:00 game, Canadiens - Canucks, as CBC has the only feed of the game.

    That's been driving me crazy too. It is listed. I don't even call Directv anymore. You just have to wait, which can really mess up DVR plans.:nono2:

    No HD for Sabres/Canadiens. Channels 638-1 and 770-1 showing DirecTV logo, the SD versions have the game.

    I didn't realize that might be a problem. I do know there are torrents out there though. :)

    It sure would be nice if CBC produced a channel for the US. I know they couldn't carry any syndicated programing that US networks have the rights for, but CBC does produce some good shows that I am sure US citizens would enjoy.

    It was called Trio, which is now Sleuth after a few ownership changes. Trio rebranded to Sleuth.

    Huge fan of Little Mosque on the Prairie..... my fiancé is a Canadian citizen and all of her family lives in Canada, its one of the things I look forward too is traveling there to see the CBC programming.. I'm kinda jealous Canadians get the best of American programming, supplemented with their own.. Unfortunately it doesn't work the other way around here …

    My question is.. Why is there never any coverage of HNiC in High Def.. especially the second game.. (I know they typically show the first one on the NHL Network).. but they never show the 2nd one.. in HD why?

    Late game on CBC is usually on 770-1 of the NHL Center Ice package.
