Finally an answer:
Comcast today has finally begun selling the NHL Center Ice package of out-of-market games, just two days prior to the start of the 2020-2021 season.
From now through February 10, the cable operator is charging $100 (four monthly installments of $25) for the package which promises up to 40 games a week in High-Definition. Comcast does not say on its Center Ice web page what the price will be after February 10.
To watch the Center Ice in HD, you must have an Xfinity X1 set-top and HD service. The games will be available on channels 3067-3097.
The 56-game, Covid-shortened NHL 2020-2021 season will start on Wednesday night with a 5:30 p.m. ET matchup between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers. The season is scheduled to end on May 8 with a 16-team playoff to follow. (Nationally televised NHL broadcasts are not available on Center Ice.)
Comcast history is to release the price during the free preview. Lord knows you never can budget.
I'm on hold for 10+ minutes and I'm continually reminded to make changes online.
Since I rejoined 2 years ago, this is what I get:
Please contact us and one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives can help.
A vicious circle.
I also called yesterday, Rep was completley confused called her supervisor who told her that they may not be carrying Center Ice this year... I also asked if we were going to get any credit for last year being canceled. Just completely clueless, left by saying she would call me back with an update... so far crickets.
I am looking into NHL tv but do not want to see the score of games prior to watching, I work late and can not watch games live.
Hope someone updates me soon.
Hello Comcast!!!! Im waiting.....
Totally believe the clueless part. They don't know what hockey is in the Philippines, so be nice.
Totally DON'T believe the NHL CI won't be carried and you shouldn't either, coming from the same clueless person you talked with.
I don't believe they will not carry it.
I also know the call was in the united states and someone working from home. But regardless it is still poor customer serice on Comcasts part to be last in line of information when other provider such as Spectrum and Direct Tv etc.. are already offering the package and pricing and maybe I'm just venting but I sick of the enless hold times and money I pay to them to get such lousy service . My only other option is to end service because they are the only choice in my condo association..
Calling Comcast is an exercise in futility as most of the time you get a representative in a foreign country who can barely speak English and has no clue what you are asking about.
I have found that I am better off driving about 10 minutes to my nearest Comcast office to ask my questions and within minutes they will have answered my questions. Only if I am desperate will I call Comcast.
Update, Now rep just told me its not available in my regon of Florida.. Time to cancel....
