    honestly, i have never been interested in hockey, but before D* added the new channels, when it was on HDnet, i turned it on alot. That was some of the best looking HD out there. Andfun to watch. Now if i just understood the game.....lol

    Does the NHL Network actually broadcast any games? I scrolled thru the EPG and didn't see any.

    I do. But I also care about SciFi HD so hopefully it's not far behind. As long as they get it on before BSG comes back I'll be happy.

    No and I think it is ridiculous how Dish charges $20 for their HD package because of those WORTHLESS Voom channels. I have always been a supporter of Dish, but I think if people are serious about wanting HD for a good price, they should go with Directv.

    Dish claims to be the HD leader but they are not. They need to stop claiming to have the "Industry's Largest HD Lineup" because they no longer do.

    Great we hot another useless pay per view or package channel called NHL of how can I fight league.

    All joking aside this type of press release stating Dish has all these great HD programs, is now being used by Direct Tv to make dish a lier as Direct TV touts all the wonderfull National channels they have in HD whille dish has useless Voom channels and etc.

    Check Direct TV site. I hope Dish in their future press release use accurate information ---just state the new program offer and do not count how many HD channels Dish has or this can be used aginst Dish

    Check Direct TV site.

    Not yet, but the NHL press release said that there will be 50 live HD games which
    is significant and will include HD Canadian feeds that have not been available
    to most US subs.

    Great that they added a channel for one of the least popular sports. NBA would of been a more logical choice, at least first.

    Los Gatos,...
    I'm not a hockey fan...or Big Ten. SO now I'm stuck with a couple dozen channels to run through on HD Guide. There should be a way to remove them.

    Yes, I know...do a favorites. Problem is I don't have any left! We should be able to make as many faves as we want and even delete their ridiculous ones. The diff between All CHan and All Sub when you subscribe to everything is...nothing that concerns me.

    I'd really like to see a way to delete the existing faves and have a reset default option to bring them back - or at least be able to edit them.

    Use locks.

    Go into locks, lock out any channel that you never want to see again, then "hide locked". The channels will disappear from all of your guides (including the all channels guide).

    I know I'm in the minority in that I absolutely love this channel. I watch it at least 5 times a week.

    I've got a huge complaint, though. There is no guide information for this channel! It has generic information in 12 hour blocks. Will this be resolved soon?

    I've had guide info ever since the channel became live.

    That's weird - maybe it's my receiver? I've got a vip622.

    Schenley, if you're referring to NHL On The Fly, I can tell you I have the same problem. Its description is 'NHL On The Fly'. That's it.

    On a side note: are the headlines for the front page biased towards DirecTV or are they just written by different people? Check this out:

    DirecTV's NHL Network announcement:
    DIRECTV - The puck is dropped, the NHL Network is launched in glorious HD and also in SD. Check out channel 215 and our discussion in the HD Discusson: NHL Network (Channel 215) thread.

    Dish's NHL Network announcement:
    dish NETWORK - NHL Network HD has been added to Dish Network. More HERE.

    See a difference? :D
