I received the letter in the mail yesterday and the early bird price for Centre Ice this year is 4 payments of $51.95. Not sure why it is so high this year. After Oct, the price goes to 4 payments of $54.95. In a few weeks we should start seeing preseason games on the Centre Ice channels. Just wish they would now add another 2 HD channels for a total of 8. With the MSG issue being resolved late last year, and what seems to be a Comcast issue as well, it would be nice to have all games in HD this year, as most teams are broadcasting all games in HD.
