Yes.. very sad that the teams don't even get local market coverage.:nono2:
Yeah no kidding. And looking at the 18th, the battle of FL (FL at TB) there is no TV coverage either. Interesting.
That's life in "real America" during football season. Pretty surprising to see no coverage for the Minnesota Wild.
Oooops, a bit late, but here is todays lineup. Only 2 HD games
Actually ALL SIX games have HD feeds. SNET WEST is doing both the Oilers and Flames' games in HD. LEAFTV is HD for the Leafs and SNET PACIFIC has the Canucks game in HD.
So out of 6 HD games, DTV has two of them.
Why do all of you keep complaining about the lack of HD feeds from Canada I don't think that we are ever going to see it except when it is on NHL Network this holds true for ALL TV services cable Direct and Dish.
All games in HD today!
Yeah but theres only 3 games on.
I know where you are coming from. However #1 - Title of the thread is "Where is the HD?" However #2, 14 months ago, there were no dual SD or HD feeds ever. Today there are. This board was a huge reason that exists now.
I've learned not to trust the on-screen guide as to if a game is in HD or not. The Vancouver-Detroit game last night was listed as HD, it was on a -1 channel, but was in SD.
True, but they are all HD.
Personally I like having games on every night instead of loading up with all the sames on a few nights. This way it's spread out and easier to catch more games.
Generally, nhl.com has it right. I do prefer that the -1 are included even if it is just downres or whatever of the SD feed as the PQ is better than just straight SD.
But, to your point, the guide isn't always right when it comes to the HD symbol. I am not usually disappointed because I am nerd enough to check nhl.com sked regularly.
You guys should thank Direct and Dish I just checked the Time Warner web site in Cincinnati and found that their CI package has ONE HD channel so that's all you can get from TW.
I agree NHL.com is usually correct and that's why I use their schedule. There were a few teams that made late HD additions that didn't seem to make their schedule though.
As for the DirecTV guide (Center Ie schedule, online schedule, DVR guide) - They have all been so far off that I don't even bother any more. What really craks me up is when there are two RSN's covering the game but only one is in HD. They often list two CI HD channels (obviously only one is really HD) but the RSN channel which is really HD generally doesn't have the HD icon. Priceless!
Thursday. It's really a shame that we are not getting these HD Canadian feeds
Its a shame that FSN doesn't show all home games in HD. I thought FSN upgraded their Houston control center to be able to handle more HD games?
The lack of HD games on the HD channels is really getting a bit ridiculous. Once again tonight, Kings game 783-1, labeled as HD but, yet again, it's not. Also the St. Louis feed is on 784-1, yet is not in HD. However that game is not labeled as HD, in the guide, but then why bother with the -1 channel, if it's not gonna be in HD, to being with.
Honestly, when I see a -1 channel, I expect to see an HD game. I have been VERY disappointed at the LACK of HD on the late(10pm+) games, so far this year.
Well, we can't blame DTV for FSN not doing more games in HD. I'd rather have DTV put those downres games in as the PQ is better than regular SD and as well, I don't want them guessing whether a game is in HD or not and guessing wrong.
So, while I understand your frustration, I couldn't disagree more with why bother with the -1 statement. I mean what does it hurt?
