This sucks. I'm a Wings fan and will miss their opener in Europe if the contract isn't worked out. I count 9 Detroit games on VS. (2009-10 Versus NHL Schedule) I'm an NHL CI subscriber and they are going to start that first installment very soon. Here's my question: Anyone ever cancel a sports package before the season starts and received a full refund after they've been charged the first installment? I'd like to think I have a month to wait it out before I consider a FiOS TV switch. (Funny that I said I wouldn't consider switching in another thread.) FiOS only charges $79 for NHL CI. Am I missing something? The quote from the DirecTV PR guy makes me a little concerned. But hey, he's a PR guy so I'm not placing any bets on what he says.
