    If you can't order until the 19th, presumably we don't know the price until the 19th. If you are on auto-renewal, the season starts on the 19th and ordering starts on the 19th, you are locked in unless you cancel prior to the 19th. Once the season starts you're toast.

    I guess you have to call. I posted a transcript a while ago of my online chat with a CSR (post #154). He said pricing isn't available online right now but you can call and talk with someone. Wouldn't answer my question that if I called they would have an answer. Just said 2-3 times to call.

    That is completely false. The first day you can order it will not also be day after you had to cancel it. You will not be locked in, so please stop telling people that. It defies all logic and common sense. Why you believe they are going to lock you in before you even know the cost is beyond me. It makes no sense whatsoever. Wait until we find out how it will actually be handled before you start telling people the sky is falling. When the pricing structure is settled for providers, Satelliteracer will be more than willing to give us the details.

    A proper 5.1 mix (rather than the stereo or matrix audio you get with some RSN's and NBC Sports Network at times) is a big part of the production. To some of us, AQ is just as important as PQ.

    colorado,...
    Just noticed that my local NBC channel,in the guide, is listing the Kings/Blackhawks game for next Saturday. No other hockey games can be found in my Guide yet on any other channels. All time slots say "To Be announced".....

    Yes, better audio. Who cares about the actual games.. PQ and audio over the actual match up. Perfect. DBS talk never stop.

    I watch PQ and not what is in the screen. I listen to the audio mix but not the actual content of said audio. Lovely stuff.. What a vomitous way to enjoy art and sport.

    NBC sports on day one sounds good to me especially with a Flyers early game.. As long as I can watch the Oilers at 10pm... I'm sure the PQ will be fine especially on Fios and the great and mighty Comcast cable(only place for real HD).

    I truly hate afternoon hockey. IMO all hockey games should be in the evening.

    They play indoors what does it matter. I like having my nights freed up.

    When you're trying to get 12-15 games played in one day and get as many people watching as possible, you have to use the afternoon. No problem with this at all.

    You keep mad NHLCI subs from cancelling.

    With those cancellations you lose $$$ from this and future seasons. They might come back in the future and they might not.

    You also keep subs from complaining about the quality of play from these games ( teams have no contact with players - no idea who is in shape,who is injured or healed, there will a limited number of practices and maybe one preseason game). Since there only 48 games if teams don't start playing at NHL level from game one subs will complain.

    What the BOG and Bettman have learned the hard way from the lock out- social media gives fans a voice that can be heard.

    East / West split. Ch. 392 shows PHI Vs. Pit, 393 has Chi @ LA. Same time.

    It is TRUE!

    Dude, who says the sky is falling? All I said is I'm cancelling before the 19th if I don't see the price, because as per DirecTV's longstanding policy, once the season starts you cannot cancel. The season starts on the 19th, they start selling CI on the 19th. If you are on auto-renewal that gives you no time. If you do nothing you are locked in. Period. You cannot call in on the 20th and say please cancel. Makes perfect sense. Can you answer the other posters question and explain why you believe otherwise? If you have some inside knowledge, please do share.

    People can do what they want, I know what I'm doing.

    Believe whatever you want to believe. Literally no one would be able to discuss their auto-renewal rate with DirecTV until after it was too late to cancel it. The reasons why that won't happen are glaringly obvious.

    Did you see in the other thread where someone did call. Was quoted $14.99 for the rest of the season.
    All NHL Thread

    And I chatted last night with a CSR. Pricing not available online yet, but he said call and 'they may have' the pricing.

    Well, whadda ya know, I called and spoke to retention, and confirmed that you need to cancel by the 18th or else you are locked in. I'm sure it was just CSR roulette though.

    The confusion right now is the wording DirecTV has on their site where it still says CI goes on sale on the 19th.

    And while I agree that what they are saying isn't what will happen, I have also learned not to use the words "logic" and "common sense" when discussing pricing and policies of DirecTV.
