RDS Question

ok, So I'm planning to get RDS for the upcoming season so I can get all 82 hab games on the West Coast.

Problem is that I will miss a good chunk of the games with my schedule.

My question is, does RDS playback the hab games... like after midnight or something (pacific time)

Last season they played a condensed version of the games around 11 pm on weeknights. The whole game in an hour, it's pretty cool. The show is called Canadiens Express.

RDS plays back all weeknight games at 11pm. They are condensed in a 1 hour show (they basically eliminate all the time between whistles).




(haha....just noticed 4-5 people answered the same thing)

They have a show called Canadiens-Express which replays the game in a compressed way in an hour (Keeping only the most important highlights). I don't think they playback the games though.

Canadiens-Express is either at 11PM or midnight on week days.

This is why I keep coming back to this board.

I have 7 responses in a matter of minutes. Thanks for all your help.

Another question:

is the canadiens express package well done? Do they do a good editing job so we dont lose the feel for the game?

oh, and are you guys saying that is 11pm eastern time or pacific time?

it's not like the full game but I found it to be very well done. You still "feel" the game.

I think it might be on again during the next morning but I'm not 100% sure.

Canadiens Express is on at 11PM ET, so that would be 8PM PT. It's 1hr, condensed minus intermissions, whistles and boring/non-action parts of the game. Only for weekday games (no Sat-Sun games)

As far as I know, they don't show the entire game again that night anymore. Not since they came up with Canadiens Express. And I'm also pretty sure Canadiens Express is only on once per game.

But its great. Or do what I do, and get a PVR/DVR for ur satelite. It's well worth it.

Canadiens Express is shown more than once. I think it is replayed during the night and the following morning.

I'm getting conflicting reports here.

Anyways, I want to hold off on a PVR until I move into our new house which is still needs to be built. It will prolly be done in a year or so.

I'm just looking for a short term solution right now.

Can the standard digital box/reciever tell the VCR to tape the games once you you hook it up to the VCR?

Nope...you gota program your VCR to record at a specific time but it will record what ever chanel is selected on the the digital box at the time(unless you can get RDS on basic cable). And once the recording is started what ever you do on the digital box will be recorded on the VCR.


Anyway it's still to early to tell what RDS's policy will be next year. They change from year to year the way and time they replay the games.
