My dad got it for us last year....All he had to do was call directv up and ask the operator about it and give his account info and request to order it....as for price...I don't know, but you can pay it in 4, 2, or 1 installments....I believe it is 150 dollars total....it is added to your monthly bill also

Correct, it can just be done via the phone, but do remember that it will be on your bill every year unless you cancel it. In other words, it's automatic-you only have to request it once. Honestly, I absolutely love it, but I live out of the area. Do know that you will rarely if ever get the Flyers home feed, but you will get virtually every game played in the NHL for the entire season. You will also get all playoff games as well. It's the best money I've ever spent.

How about Direct TV in general? Is that good. I would like to know about how much that is and all that. Cause cable sucks, and I could get NHL Center Ice

I like DirecTv and wouldn't go back to cable if you paid me. Yes, you do lose reception in huge storm but it is usually pretty brief, and is getting better. What stinks is when a big storm moves in five minutes before the end of whatever show you're watching. If you have young ones, I REALLY recommend it-I have three Disney Channels, two Nickelodeons and a bunch of other kids related stuff-they even have PBSKids 24/7--nothing worse than flipping through channels at 2am and seeing 'Barney'. We also pay a few dollars more for the 'gold package' which includes all the movie channels which include five HBOs, a couple of Cinemax's, three or so Showtimes, Starz, oh gosh and a bunch more as well. It goes from channel 501-549+ just for those types of movies, then there's like 100 pay-per view channels, you can get 'all day packages' and the movies they have start just about every half hour on different channels. The pay-per-view is about a month behind the video stores, though. All in all, I can't compare it to digital cable, because I've never had it. We got DirecTv when I became addicted to hockey, so we've had it for well over a decade-long before digital cable even existed. Good luck with whatever choice you make and if I can be of further help, let me know.

Also, on the months I'm not paying for hockey my bill is in the $95-$100 range depending on whether or not we rent movies, but like I said we have the top of the line package ('premiere' or 'gold'). On the months when you're paying for hockey the bill is about $140-for three or four months, I forget which, but my first installment should be this month or next. When I get my bill, I'll let you know.

Center Ice is available on comcast. The only package Comcast does not have is the NFL Package which is exclusive to Direct TV. One of the mainly pluses of having Direct TV.

If you have Comcast cable from the Philadelphia area, you are just about guarenteed Flyers games.

If you aren't, you must call your cable provider(or satellite provider) to see if they offer the Center Ice Package. DirecTV does provide it, so does Comcast cable.

Just don't order center ice (or at least do some research) if you're in the york area...for some reason we get baltimore feeds for comcast...and for some reason center ice blacks out flyer games...so i go to college there and can pretty much watch the flyers if they're on NBC or play the caps...because for some other reason the york area doesn't recieve OLN on any basic/digital cable packages that me and my roommates looked into getting...i've cleverly named the york area the "no fly zone" and love to complain about it

yup, the same thing goes for the whole region up to camphill...so def check what feeds u get first. harrisburg and on east towards philly it is comcast philadelphia and places south and west of camphill/harisburg get baltimore/washington comcast becasue its supposed to be more in demand for our region. its some major bull cause even if i order center ice the philly games still get blacked out. Im basically inside the blackout region and outside the local region in a little place known as hell.

It really just depends on what service area you are considered being in.

I'm in one of the few areas of Central NJ which Cablevision does not cover so I have Comcast. I get pretty much the same lineup as Cablevision customers including MSG, FSNY, YES, ect. I don't get any Flyers games however unless I have Center Ice. I of course have Center Ice since it's a no brainer cost wize.

The package cost is always released in late september, at least around here. Ordering is very easy.

Is there any way of getting Flyers games broadcast here in the UK? We have this channel called NASN but we only really get one game per 6 weeks...

If you get them now, you'll still get them with Center Ice, just that feed will be blacked out. You'll watch Flyers games like you do now on Sportsnet.
