Lots of NHL fans pissed, 2 week free trial is their way to try to bring em back....

It might work on me. If I get hooked enough, I might be willing to get a Roku and purchase the other NHL package (the one with MORE HD channels than Center Ice) - its always seemed the better value.

Its kinda hard to blame the NHL for this. They don't have complete control over this since its owned by INDEMAND. So its not like they can force them to give it us to free this season. Now the NHL center ice online could be a different story since that is run entirely by the league.

My compromise idea would be a free season to those who have NHL Network!

This is nothing new. There's always been a free trial of at least two weeks.

AFAIK, Verizon has not said anything about pricing but DirecTV will be four payments of $15.99 for the season.

$49.95.

I wonder if Verizon will ever pick up the other hd channels. In offers at least 9 hd channels, I believe.

Are any of those channels using MPEG4?

I had the plan thru Roku last year. Funny to watch games where they used the "jumbotron" feed when there was no tv/ cable broadcast. Waiting to see what the price will be.

I had heard that it was going to be free for this shortened season due to the lockout. $50.00 is too high.

Pretty certain that 3 of the 5 HD channels are mpeg4.

I'm going to see how the preview works out. $49.99 is quite enticing...

Has anyone done the math? Per game (all), per team, per period (okay per period is a bit to far ) Minus the free trial etc ...

Considering the full seaon was priced at $170 for 82 games its a decent price for $50 and 48 games. Of course one could say the initial $170 for 82 is way overpriced....

There were rumors swirling around a week or so ago that it was going to be free (guess not)... Now the mainstream is $50.00. God forbid the NHL and PA miss out on this revenue share after fighting over the fans last cent for 4 months. Instead, their apology to the people who give them an exisistence will be a "Thank You Fans" painted on the ice. Let's hope the folks at MSG avoid that stupidity and offer deep discounts in the fan shops and beer and food.
The only thing I'm excited about is finally getting to see Rick Nash in his new Rangers uniform !!! Rangers are going to be NASHTY this season !!!!!

Actually, ALL five (Ch. 1470 through Ch. 1474) of the NHL Center Ice/Major League Baseball HD Season Package Channels are now MPEG-4. They are all located at 297 MHz (QAM RF Ch. 36) and only decode audio on MPEG-2 clear QAM tuner TV sets. So customers with QIP 6200 and QIP 6416 boxes will get no free preview in HD, but will receive SD channels only.

As was mentioned Fios will ship a free 7xxx upgrade to anyone who subscribes to the package.
