For the past few years I have either had center ice or game center. This season I did not have the funds to start at the beginning of the season and am now looking at signing up mid-season, but the price of 119 for what amounts to half the season is just too much when you compare it to the early bird pricing of what I believe was 159. ( I somewhat recall an early bird special of 119 when I signed up one season even)
For those who may have signed up mid-season in the past, does the NHL do a mid-season price drop, or do they follow the normal NHL path of marketing, math, and PR failures and not adjust pricing as the season goes along.
It really seems as though the NHL is missing the boat on potential additional subscribers by not knocking off a % of the price each month as the season ticks along.

MLB.tv had a mid-season special last season where you could purchase it for mobile access only (eg. iPhone) for only $30. 30! That was an amazing price and MLB.tv is a pretty solid product too. For that price, watching on the small screen was no big deal. I wish the NHL would do something like that. The baseball guys probably figured it would pay for itself in subscriptions for the following year.
I dont remember the exact prices, but i know last year it dropped around this time, but then dropped again after Valentine's Day. The reason i know this is because i was pissed that it dropped another $20 the day after i ordered it so i fought my cable company and got them to give me $20 back
