Or better yet, just shell out for CI. You don't have to eat three meals a day.

Does the CI package include any playoff games?

no clue. would be interested to know, though.

what really stinks is that (from what I hear from folks who are paying for CI) they are running ads that say "We hope you are enjoying this free preview of NHL Center Ice on Comcast digital cable!"

And they aren't doing it!!!!

oh and here's an address to submit a question to the CI folks

Hope you get it turned on. I really love it. Especially since the road Thrasher games have been on the last few games. Looks like no TV tonight unless CI has it on. It's ahome game so I doubt it.

I know Center Ice does carry at least the first round of the playoffs, maybe two. In past years they meshed well with ESPN to cover what didn't make it to ESPN or ABC.

This year, who knows.

I know that the Thrasher game tonight was on the Center Ice free preview, but then again I have satellite so that might make a difference. I usually dont have CI so it seems Comcast is in on it, then again they were advertising Preds merchandise ... so I think it was the Preds channel.

Well, that Atlanta Comcast Nazis aren't carrying it.

and you're in Atlanta???

I called Comcast TWICE and they said the reason I wasn't seeing it on my tv was because they weren't carrying it.

Charter in Gwinnett carried it, even though I paid for CI I still got to look at the annoying message all night. And while it was the Nashville feed, their play-by-play guy wasn't bad, the color commentator was a bit annoying but nowhere near as bad as the Pittsburgh team, those guys were horrible.

I finally did a little more sleuthing and think it is just MY TV, though two different Comcast phone reps assured me that Comcast was NOT carrying the free preview.

My parents live across town and have the same cable box and it is coming in on their TV, so I called Comcast for a 3rd time and they are sending someone over here Saturday to see what is going on.

Like you guys care!

Very bored this evening....

You are not alone........BrightHouse Networks in the Tampa Bay area has opted not to provide the Center Ice free preview to their customers too. I told them they suck, it's FREE for god's sake!

I think it was just my tv, though. Others in my area can get it. Still sucks to miss all those games that are on tonight, though.

Looking forward to heading back to Philips tomorrow night!

FWIW, it's free for you. It's not free for the cable companies to offer the free preview. They have to pay for it. They don't pick up the free preview if they don't think enough people will buy the half season package to make it worth their time and money.
