    They do not have TSN.

    How much is GameCenter? And I wonder if you can log in from multiple locations at once? ;)

    I have MLB-TV and I can view it signed on to my Xbox 360, Google TV and two of my computers, at the same time. But that is all within my home network. I have never tried to sign on with my laptop from outside my network, while I had one of them running on my network. I imagine GC is be the same way.

    Disappointing. Half the reason I switched to D* was for center ice...

    My objection to NHL On the Fly is when the NHL Network on Saturday night had both games of HNIC in HD, including the Pre-game, the MacLean & Cherry show between games and the After Hours wrap-up, and they replaced the second game and After hours with NHL on the Fly. And on most nights, the second game of HNIC was only available in SD. I'm a regular watcher of On The Fly, but not usually when there are live games on.

    It seemed like they only had TSN on when two Canadian teams were playing each other and there was no U.S. feed?

    I'm hoping now that D* can do six channels per transponder that we'll see more Canadian HD feeds.

    MLB-TV can do it from different parts of the country... I know 3 people can at once. ;)

    I'm hoping GC can because I'm not to looking forward to the season to justify buying CI, but wouldn't mind "splitting" ;) up GC.

    I really wish the NHL would give you GC with NHLCI. I think the NBA and MLB do that.

    That sure would be a big plus toward them getting more subscribers.

    Your memory was of two seasons ago (if you're referring to DirecTV).

    Last season featured both ends of the HNIC double headers in HD on Center Ice as well as many SNET games featuring the Leafs. Others were hit or miss but it was a very rare occasion that a game didn't have at least one team's feed in HD.

    Have any D* folks looked at their accounts online lately? I was in today to check on something and noticed under "My Sports" it indicates I have no sports subscriptions and NHLCI is not in the list of options below. I've been a subscriber on auto-renew since 2003...so that was odd.

    Thank you. I knew when I was typing that it was a bit 'off', but I just couldn't remember the details.

    I just looked at my last bill (ended 7/27 and EFT on 8/11). NHL CI is still listed. $0.00. If it has been removed, maybe DirecTV is preparing for a late start to the season?

    I just looked, and you're right. It's not even in the list Let's hope their contract isn't up for renewal...

    Oilers fan living in Utah with Direct NHLCI here.

    Last year when the Oilers were on HNIC the games were in HD.

    When they played any US team in Edmonton, the US team had an HD feed, but the Oilers broadcast was in SD.

    When the Oilers were playing on the road at a US team there was often no Oilers broadcast available at all and there was no option but to watch the US based team’s coverage.

    When they played another Canadian team, if the game was on TSN we would get the TSN broadcast in HD.

    If the game was against a US team, the TSN broadcast was not available and we had to watch the US teams broadcast.

    When the Oilers played another Canadian team and the game was not on TSN or NHLCI, we only got one broadcast (the home teams) and it was always in SD, not HD.

    The only exception I remember was a game against the Leafs that was shown on both the Oilers network (SD) and the Leafs network (HD).

    When the Oilers played Vancouver and Calgary (both in their division) we only got the SD broadcast of the home team, not both teams.

    The lack of TSN is frustrating, and the lack of Oilers broadcasts when they are the road team is also annoying. And of course, the fact that most of the time the Oilers broadcast is in SD.

    Please do not post and tell me to buy a Canadian system so I can watch the games in HD. :) I'm sticking with what I've got.

    The good news is I get to watch almost all of their games. It may not be the best, but it's better than nothing! :)

    NBA is the only pro sport that offers 1 charge for all TV and online and devices.

    MLB you have to either get the EI for TV or mlb.tv for online and all devices.

    I would say for the past 4 years.

    I been paying for NHL and MLB both the CI/ EI as well as GCL and mlb.tv

    because I do travel at parts of the year.

    MLB-TV can also be used on TV as well as computer, with a smart TV or smart TV device.

    Lancaster,...
    I sent an email to the NHL last winter asking about combining the NHL CI and online packages together but I got no response.
