Most times I would have to watch the opponent feed. The only time I got left in the dark ws when the game was shown on an alternate, non national network, like NHL network. No game then. Even if you miss a few its worth it. By the time you go to a sports bar and have a few beers and a burger, you're into 25 or 30 buck. You do that 5 times in a year and you've broken even. You should call TW cable 8695500 and ask them how many Rangers games they will be showing this year on MSG. The other trick is that a lot of nights, standard MSG would show Buffalo, but MSGHD would show the Rangers. I've been out of the area a lot for work last year, but I have all intention of ordering it as soon as I get around to it.
So far I'm getting a number of very contradicting answers!
SML, Just to clarify what you are saying:
1 Where do you live if you dont mind me asking(what town)?
2. In the situation you described, the 50 Rangers games that were shown on MSG would NOT be shown on Center Ice at all correct?
3. In that same situation, the 32 Rangers games not shown on MSG would be available on the opponent feed on Center Ice?
4. Does anyone know if it matters if I have Direct Tv instead of Time Warner in terms of this weird situation? Or its all based on Center Ice rules?
Thanks a lot!
