    My bad, the only CBC HD feed we received was actually on NHLN. The other expected CBC HD games on NHL CI disappeared from the guide or had the DIRECTV logo.

    The guide is again showing CBC HD feeds for tomorrow night October 22nd. We can only hope....

    There has been a bit of improvement in NHLCI this year with a couple of Canadian HD feeds and a few TSN SD feeds. I wonder if this will continue once the free preview is over?

    That might have been what I was thinking of, they had a TSN HD feed. In any case, its an improvement over past years and I'm optimistic it will continue for the rest of the season.

    I wonder if Canadians who purchase CI only receive U.S. games in SD?
    Or with the commercials blacked out?

    The Montreal home games I`ve seen in HD really put the meaning to eye-popping.
    I think it`s the lighting in the building, but it looks great.

    My bet is NO.They'll disappear at the last second from the guide as usual.
