    Just got off the phone with the NHL offices. THe reason they are not showing the US game tonight is because fox has sole rights. That is given through USA Hockey and the IIHF.

    On the note for TEam Canada they are not given any rights to show any of their games and if we want that in the future we need to contact Canada Hockey and the IIHF.

    The only other thing for the future tournys is that as people in the states contact those groups as well as CI and request that they show the games. But for the rest of the tourny we are no go and if the US does not make the finals it is probable that the final will not be shown either.

    I am wondering if I should post the number for CI on here. The girl was real nice but it was out of her hands, they were just not given the rights to show the games this year.

    Note that directtv has a special, $10/month off for the first 6 months of the sports pak. Ends up costing $2/month for those 6 months.

    "Note that directtv has a special, $10/month off for the first 6 months of the sports pak. Ends up costing $2/month for those 6 months."

    do you have to be a new person to directv or if you already have it can you still get the deal?

    Glad you got an answer, even if it sucks. My Fox Sports station is showing the Oklahoma St vs Pepperdine basketball game tonight.

    As noted by the amount of FSN affiliates carrying the game, the IIHF should be less than pleased.

    Just go to your account at directtv.com and add it to your package. Then after the games over go back and take it off your package and you'll only have to pay a pro rated amount on your next bill which will be less than a $1. I did this alot when I had Direct TV and it works out well if you only want the channel for a day or two to watch something specific.

    Fox Sports Ohio is showing this game as well....who in Ohio gives a damn about Ok St vs. Pepperdine? Do they have monkeys making the programming decisions?

    Yeah, and I even spent 30 min on hold with my cable company to see if I could pick up Fox Sports Net North, and of course, it's not available in my region.

    They don't offer the 3 Fox college sports channels? Technically it's just a 3 pack of Fox college sports channels,but they pick up feeds from other Fox channels like FSN North. Who's your cable provider?

    None of the three college sports channels appear to have the hockey feed.

    The Fox sports central channel on the 3 pack is the channel it's going to be on.

    All hooked up. Scary when you get solid customer service. :)

    For those of you with Fox College Sports Central, the Canada-USA round robin game will be re-aired at 12:30 (Eastern) tomorrow afternoon.

    Becareful with directv, if you get the package today and try and drop it tomorrow you will be charged a $10 service fee. This started in Sept 05. I use to do this and after getting hit with the fee I called and was told why. I also called again tonight just to make sure. So you either pay $11 (1 for the day and 10 for the cancle) or $12 for the month.

    Same here with Fox Sports Detroit. I wrote them a week ago to see if they could show the USA-Canada game on Saturday night, but didn't even get a response. I've resorted to watching a decent Penn State-Florida State matchup while listening on Team 1040. It would be nice if the US media gave 10% of the attention to hockey that they give to college football :madfire: I just finished writing a blog entry on the subject to voice my disgust after missing yet another WJHC.
