NHL Center Ice

How come there is no Mosaic channel and no replay of the games for the Center Ice Package ?

There isn't? That's odd. I'd call MTS.

You can set up your own Mosaic channel with "My Picks" on channel 93. This used to work with TSN Jets and CI - see:

My Picks - How to Use

I think Centre Ice shows live games only. Or do you mean that the Replay button on the remote doesn't work?

Yes I use the My picks but it is a pain. The setup is a joke, having to scroll thru all the channels to add or delete the ones you want instead of just pressing the channel numbers on the remote is so slow. The whole software, menus, etc. for this system is buggy.

As for the replay of games I checked the TV listings from Bell and Shaw on zap2it.com and they show the replays.

Shaw, MTS, Bell all have exactly the same service as far as I know, The programming is done by the channel owner (NHL) and each of Shaw, Bell and MTS just distribute the broadcast channels.

I would agree the my picks is a bit of a pain to set up, but once you do, it works fine.

I think Shaw used to have their own "app" for Center Ice.

I checked Zap2it for Bell and Shaw - didn't see any repeats on Centre Ice channels.

Bell only showed live games and Zap2it just showed generic channel info for CI - it didn't show any game info at all.

They show repeats on Westman Cable in Brandon, seen it last year. Bell and Shaw do also according to zap2it.

Thanks for the links - Zap2it links don't work that well since they use my current settings, however I was able to figure out they were for Bell and Westman.

I had someone check all the CI channels on a TV connected to Shaw Cable and none of them were showing any games, even though your Bell listing says that "Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals" is on. I can't check Bell right now.

If you saw the repeats last year, then I guess they must be there on Westman and Bell. I think that Bell and Shaw Broadcast are the 2 distributors for a lot of premium programming like PPV and CI. I remember that MTS sourced a lot of this type of programming from Shaw Broadcast, so perhaps that is the reason.

I wouldn't be surprised if you turned on the channel during the times shown on the Bell schedule where it says there is a replay that you would in fact see the replay.
