NHL center ice HD

There are no HD channels for center ice yet again. Anyone know when this will be fixed?

I used the voice remote and said "find me nhl center ice beta " and it took me to the screen with the teams . Hit Toronto and it was in Hd. I hope that helps you!

In my market it is 789 and 790 for HD. The channel above 771 is where nhl center ice beta usually is but it’s currently set to mlb.

If you have X1, go to the channel 3000, or right before WILLOW Cricket channel, you can get NHL Beta HD, just click on the team you want.  You do need to be a subscriber to Center Ice to get that, it is not part of the free preview

Are we unable to record NHL games in Beta area?  Also, I found my local broadcast on Fox Sports Tennessee (I live in Tennessee.) of the Predators game scrambled on Saturday night. Hopefully that was just a glitch?

I have not been able to get a  local broadcast on Fox Sports Sun for the Lighning,  I live in Southwest Florida so they should be on SUN.    Home games on Center Ice are blacked out and I was able to watch an away game with the Hurricanes vs Lightning on Center Ice but it was still unavailable on my local broadcast channel.

 

So 2 home games were completly unavailable for me on center ice and my local broadcast and the away game was only available on Center Ice.

 

I really hope this is some sort of glitch.      The really strange part is that my local broadcast is available on the xfinity stream app on my normal local broadcast channel (Fox Sports Sun).

True you cannot record through the beta

Re: NHL center ice HD

I debated between the single team NHL.TV for $115 versus the NHL Center Ice through comcast for $145.  Both said HD, NHL.TV was a little cheaper and had a few more features plus gives me every game versus the "up to 40 games per week" and being able to record.  Being able to record was the main deciding factor.  I guess comcast will be getting a call tomorrow morning!!!

Everything you said was true. But the games that are in HD through the Beta app can’t be recorded. The HD game on the linear channel CAN be recorded.

Re: NHL center ice HD

So to confirm, Center Ice is available on (at most) two channels?

Re: NHL center ice HD

No, not all. It depends on how many games. Your question should be how many HD channels vs SD channels. If you want to look at what’s available, look at your guide. Maybe you should continue on your original thread

To be more precise, I only have two NHL Center Ice HD channels. Hence, my original question.

Re: NHL center ice HD

You’re lucky if you have 2, some have 1. If you have the X1 platform, use the voice commands “find me nhl center ice beta " and you’ll have all HD

Re: NHL center ice HD

I have said exactly those words twice a day for the past four days. After entering beta, each ime I click on a team logo I have received three rotating dots and and then an error message saying something went wrong and try again later/exit.  This has been the source of my frustration as I read about beta. 

 

Now in beta I can finally see a daily schedule of upcoming  league games (ie all games coming up tomorrow October 15).  Hopefully that will result in all HD broadcasts.
