    Why am I paying full price then? I should get two weeks off due to it being free..

    To me there should not be any free previews of games. If you wanna do a Freebie on Redzone and super fan, thats fine, but everyone knows how football and hockey are played and if they want it or not.

    If the ONLY place the Flyers are being shown is Versus, then everyone sees it.

    They are in HD in Canada. When I left for work this morning they only showed SD on the DirecTV program guide and that's what they show on the website. So no HD for DirecTV NHL fans.... :mad:

    You want 2 weeks credit? The season is about 27 weeks. At $171.80 for CI, that's $6.36 per week. Call DirecTV, I'm sure they'll credit you a whopping $12.72, but probably more. :rolleyes:

    Do you know if you are paying full price or if you are getting the early bird pricing? I'm not sure myself, but always have received it in the past. I'll try to explain my this a different way. The point of it is that you probably are getting the preview weeks for free.

    The NHL CI season is roughly 30 weeks long including the first round of the playoffs. So if you divide the $171.80 by 30 and multiply by 2, the discount you are asking for is roughly $12. So after after the free preview, typically the early bird pricing expires and the price goes up to say $185, you actually paid $13 less for the season then they will. Any one that watches the free preview and buys it, pays the same price as you. So basically, if the $171.80 is the typical early bird price, you are in essence, getting the preview for free.

    171.80 / 30 weeks is 5.73 a week.



    people less than 6 bucks 6 bucks and you have a full week of hockey thats cheaper then most lunch and other stuff that people buy.

    thats works for me im happy.

    When you compare it to the high price of Sunday Ticket, for it's 6 hours a week of football, for 17 weeks, it is a real bargain.

    I was under the impression that last year, the Toronto games on Rogers Sportsnet were available in HD on Direct's Center Ice. I don't remember, I thought that is what I heard. Correct me if I am wrong. (was it Leafs TV?) The original poster stated that the game (Friday, October 15 vs Rangers) on Directv Center Ice will not be in HD (Maple Leafs Feed, not Rangers) So was SNET-O available in HD on directv CI last year?

    Yeah, I would love to get Sunday Ticket but really there are only 32 time slots for games per year to watch (Sunday @ 12 and 3 x 17 weeks), all the other games are pretty much national. Not to mention I have season tickets to the Rams and am gone over 1/4 of that time. So when you break it down to "game hours" available, Center Ice seems like an even better deal. (or Sunday Ticket a bad deal)

    It was SNET-O that carried the Leafs games in HD on DIRECTV NHL CI last year. Only a handful of games were in HD, not all of them. If you want to see when some of the games were actually on, you can look through last years NHL thread [link]. The link starts at my first post about SNET-O.

    regardless of what you compare it to, it is a steal. A few years ago a client gave me tickets to a Rangers game, row 11 along side boards aligned with the dot of the offensive zone face off circle, the face value of the ticket was $130.

    last year i wanted to get a ticket to see the Rangers hawks game at the UC, everything was more than $300!!I figure I watch about 120 games, <$1.50 per game and you can see a lot more. Yes, going to a game is great, but all pro sports are getting beyond what i am willing to pay, can afford, just won't spend.

    Hoping the Bears continue to look like they did against the giants so that by the time the Jets get here in December can get a ticket cheap, then I might go.

    I wonder why they don't show them all. I think every game the Leafs plays is available in HD. Just not with Directv CI. I wonder why.

    I believe with that package, you should have been able to view VS HD on 603. Did you try to refresh your services?
