Rogers is now showing the East game on NBC-E & NBC-W, but still have both games available on CI.

Do we have a choice on eastern feed for NBC,CBS. ABC, presently getting Detroit feed. Living in eastern Ontario would much rather get Syracuse, Rochester or even Buffalo. Since Detroit is in the west conference, I can easily see why they would carry Los Angeles vs Chicago.

I certainly wanted to see Pens vs Flyers. Like everyone else the switch was made start of the third. Having the Center Ice package there is no reason you don't have a choice should be able to watch both, one on NBC the other on Center Ice Package.

Anyone getting the Calgary game in HD with Center Ice package? where it should be is blank, yet can get it on standard as part of the same package. It doesn't make any sense.

Forget it their now showing, Shaw must have been a sleep on the switch.

The HD channel started showing the game then it cut out for a few minutes, then it came back again. SD channel was seamless without no cut out or loss.

I can make similar pages for both shaw companies, I am not sure finding a webpage means anything:

https://gamecenter.nhl.com/nhlgc/che...p?b=shawdirect

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

I realize that Shaw has no control over Center-Ice(beleive it's Comcast in the U.S.) but fans that went to the live games got tons of free stuff, I think that there should be something for the rest of us. My closest NHL team is 7-8 hrs away.

So 50 bucks instead of 200 bucks is not good enough? That 200 bucks is how much 4 seats are for that one game.

It's 50 vs 90, not 200. The discount is about $40 and from what it looks like, if you want GCL like they gave last year for free, it'll be $50+$50=$100. So for what we got last year, it'll be $10 MORE. No discount here.

Nothing to see here folks...move on!

GCL was not 90 bucks last year and CI was never 90 bucks. Last year,
$210 - CI
$170 - GCL

This year and only this year, both GCL and CI are 50 bucks each.

Hi DSgamby - You forgot to prorate for the garbage 48 game season. The regular season price for NHL CI with Shaw is $30/month. Freeview games are NOT included so $30*3 months this year (Feb, March and April) is $90. Also, as part of the regular price in a regular non-shortened season, NHL CI from Shaw comes with a code to get GCL for free. This year it doesn't look like that's going to happen, even though they def should still include that. So to reiterate in order to get what we had last year, NHL CI + GCL it will cost $100 ($50+$50) this year versus the $90 of what it should have cost. $10 more. No deal here.

I did not prorate. I am talking about how much someone is paying. Shaw is 50 bucks. You also did not prorate for the 2 free previews that the providers give each year which is more time than the free preview this season. Shaw's CI package is 50 bucks a month for 4 months. Shaw's CI this years is 50 bucks for 3 months.

Would it not be good to pro-rate the prices on a per-game basis?
