Center ICE: Pre-season?

I have gotten mixed responses on this.

For those of you who have Center ICE and live in New York State...does Center Ice show any pre-season games?

No pre-season games (on iO at least).

I called Cablevision on Friday to order Center Ice and asked the same question. Not sure if other companies show them or not though.

I have Time Warner-NYC, and I don't think so.

any televised preseason games for NYR is on MSG channel
optimum online carries.
also you can find streams of it online if you need

It's probably not applicable to most of you, but for CANADA (Shaw):

Center Ice early bird pricing is until October 31st, and it is 4 payments of $51.95, and comes with a free subscription to GameCenter Live. So I would guess your price would also hover ~ $200 USD.

For the record, no pre-season last 2 years for us

Center Ice is four payments of $42.95 on DirecTV. MSG carries the preseason games, and they aren't blacked out out of area (unlike regular season games). You can get it in the sports pack (something like $12 a month), and cancel it after preseason if you don't want to put up with the online stream quality.

Doesn't look like the Thursday rookies game is being televised, though - although the evening game is on both MSG and MSG+; I would be surprised if they had both commentary teams doing this - anyone know what that's about?

I noticed at least 4 games on the guide with my CI Canadian subscription with Bell Express Vu satellite here in Atlantic Canada but none were of the Rangers . From what I remember from last pre season...the guide was quite inaccurate and usually I had to surf to find a few games at night as they would not be added to the guide until almost gametime...go figure !

I have DirecTV and have gotten NHL CenterIce for 4 years now. This will be year 5. They do not show preseason games. I do not live in NY and I order the sportspack for 1 month to get MSG and watch the preseason games, that are aired on MSG, or any other sports network airing them =). They tend to not-blockout the preseason games, but once the regular season games air, they will blocked out if you are out of market.

So because I am out of the MSG area I order NHL CenterICE and for the preseason games I order the SportsPack and cancel it after a month. When I call to cancel, if they want to stop me and offer me 3 months free...I'll take it =) but always call and cancel afterwards because at that point, I'm only keeping it for MSG Game Night =D . Works like a charm every year.

If you get the regional sports package, you'll get MSG and the preseason games.
