    In the past, NBC didn't officially announce their plans until the Thursday before the race.

    If it is like the Derby, then the first OT will be on NBC, anything past that went to CNBC (although the first announcement was it was going to NBC Sports).

    (this thread probably should be under sports programming and not DirecTV General Discussion as this isn't specific to DirecTV)

    The game starts at 1pm on Saturday. I doubt it's an issue but alot of NY'ers will be pissed if they have to change channels to watch the end of the game.

    If the game goes really late I would say the race goes to NBC Sports Network.

    If anyone thinks any part of the game will be on NHL Network or CNBC, they're crazy.

    I agree with you comment about the NHL Network, but why not CNBC? That was the plan if the game last week went past the 1st OT and conflicted with the Kentucky Derby pre-race events.

    Okay, you are already get worked up over nothing. They will have plenty of time to complete the game and overtime of needed. Why worry about it now? Stress about it of it actually goes longer.

    Actually, in that second announcement they said that 2 full overtimes would be shown on NBC and anything beyond that would be shown on CNBC.

    I really don't see it being a major concern. Very doubtful the hockey game goes past 5pm.

    It won't be a concern even if it goes into multiple OTs. I have a device called a remote control which enables me to change to the 'new' channel without even getting off the sofa.

    So do I, but I also have a device called a DVR and it lets me watch the game at a time of my own choosing and if I do not set it to record a particular channel at a particular time it does not do so, so if it is a very long game I might sit down to watch at, say 7PM local time and miss the deciding goal in the 3rd overtime.

    And that's why you extend the recording time for 30 minutes.

    Funny thing about that remote, though, it cannot go back in time and change the channels when you get home from life and want to watch the game on your DVR. That is a serious problem for us on the West Coast where all the East Coast games are really early!

    I guess I was applying my own ideals where real hockey fans wouldn't miss watching a play-off game live. :D

    But in all seriousness, set your DVR for the first four to five hours on NBC and then starting at 4:30 for another three hours for whatever channel NBC announces they will shift to if the game goes into multiple OTs. You'll most likely end up with a bunch of non-hockey recordings, but it is easy to delete those hours later.

    That is what I will do, but it is hard to do this without knowing which channel. :lol:
