    Well it looks as if all of our emails and phone calls may have paid off!

    Checking channel 768 it looks as if DirecTV is showing the Hockey Night in Canada pregame show. The on screen guide also shows the post game show after the second game.

    So THANK YOU DirecTV if you carry through with this you will make a lot of hockey fans very happy!

    I also would like to thank Directv for adding this programing.

    Maybe Directv now knows how important HNIC is. ( this is the very best hockey production in North America - It is the Monday Night Football of Canada).

    Now please do your best to get the HD feeds for all of your Canadian feeds.

    Ok, can anyone confirm that this happened tonight? Im in the NY market so the I thankfully get the Ranger feed of the game vs the Leafs. However, if for future games not involving the rangers, that this is true and the ENTIRE night of HNIC is gonna be on..Im gonna order this tonight.

    Credit where credit is due - good job D*. I'm sorry that I became impatient... this was just the third year I've been writing to D* to complain about the lack of HNIC pregame coverage. I'll be writing a thank you email tonight.

    OMG!!! I just got home and turned it on. I've got goose bumps I'm so excited!!! :D :grin: :p

    As far as HD goes, I'm sure D* is working on it. As one poster said, they need to get some encoders/decoders in order to get the HD feeds from CBC and TSN.

    So things are definitely looking up, and things can only get better. :)

    Yes Credit where credit is due. DirecTV has finally delivered HNIC starting at 6:30 and if we can believe the program guide they will give us the post game show as well.

    All the emails and phone calls seem to have finallly paid off...

    Wow, first time seeing the pre and post game shows, CBC really knows how to cover hockey (well of course they do, its Canada after all). I don't think we'll ever see anything like this in the U.S.

    Perfectly said! Now let us hope that D* will permanently provide the pre and post games with not interruptions in between the 1st and second game of HNIC.
