Center Ice and MSG Network

In the past month Center Ice has sucked for MSG telecasts.
They do not show the MSG 150 segment and they do not show any ads.
You get that awful "We'll be right back!" screen and music.

Why all of the sudden and can we expect it to end?
I suspect this is due to Bettman hating Dolan.

This only happens for every other network.

I think this is per contract. Presumably, to see MSG ads and intermission content, you'll need to be in their viewing area.

Good theory. Only the problem is that this applies to every single other network out there.

And missing ads? Why is that really a complaint? It's not like you're watching MSG for the ads.

I have Center Ice via DirecTV and see all the ads and MSG150...frankly wouldn't mind missing the Acorn Stairlift commercial.

I'm in Connecticut and have the same issue with Center Ice. It's not so much that I want to see the commercials and all that, I just hate looking at the "we'll be right back" screen and having to listen to that awful music that they play....

On GCL, not CI it seems to be hit or miss for me.
Sometimes I get the ads and intermission show, sometimes I get the "well be right back screen" which I agree is very annoying.

I live in PA. We received both FLA and NY feeds on Center Ice the other night. MSG feed had all the 'we'll be right back'....Fox in FL had a little, but nothing compared to MSG. So it must be more of an MSG issue, what issue? No idea. For those who do not understand, the still graphic and music are incredibly annoying, reminds me of the old tests of the Emergency Broadcast System. This is only a test. I'm trying to teach my wife the game, she always asks.....what is this &!#% ??

It doesn't happen to DirecTV subscribers of Center Ice so it is probably your cable company

I'm sure this is to do with the cable company and MSG and rights. The rights to the broadcast of the game itself belong ultimately to the NHL, everything else belongs to MSG.

Who is your cable provider? I have Brighthouse here in Florida. Oddly enough, this we'll be right back "blackout" coincided with the MSG HD feed being available every night.

I'm thrilled with the trade. Sure, the "we'll be right back" jingles are annoying as hell, but I'm getting the MSG feed in HD.

I have COX in VA.
ONLY MSG does this, with no commericials and no MSG 150 and it ONLY started this season. I do not know why.
