Sounds pretty damn cool. Maybe the NHL Network will start coming in HD now!

Unless this somehow means I can finally get CSN Philly broadcasts of Flyers' games on Center Ice, meh...

I pay Comcast 160 a year for hockey and I don't get any of this content...********.

meh...

this has nothing to do with Center Ice.

and it reads to me as if you'll only have highlights on demand anyway. so it's just a minor improvement over watching On The Fly.

Yes...other than non-HD, I love this channel....On the Fly is put on in my house before I go to bed and then when I wake up in the morning until I leave for work

Totally agree. Tough it also means you can access the highlights when NHLN is showing something else.

It's marginal news at best.

I have it in HD, but I have Service Electric Cable in Reading,PA. Luckily those anti-monopoly laws allow me to get basically the same services including internet for about 3/4ths the price. (actually i get more channels in HD than comcast) My parents live in NJ and they said some state tax just rose their bill 20$.

Only thing i can't get is CN8, but the feeds are better quality than CN8 anyway.

I see it in HD in the channel listings on my comcast. Unfortunately we don't have the sports package, but it seems to be available.

Seriously? That's just dumb and deceiving.

now if only the $cumbag$ at Comcast would allow Dtv to put their channel on the RSNs I'd be completely happy. Sucks not being able to see any pre/post game coverage.
