    Thankfully we don't have Shaw in Regina, hoo-ray for Access Communications that is carrying Centre Ice for the same price as the original poster stated (even cheaper when you do the currency conversion).

    one of the (many) benefits to living in NYC, with NYR/NYI/NJ and OLN broadcasts, there is an NHL game on just about every night, so Center Ice is not really needed.

    Thanks for the info.

    Unlike Dish or DirecTV, Bell subscribers get all the HD games, including ones broadcasted by RSNs in the US. As a Dish Network subscriber, I can't get the Avs Altitude HD broadcasts, but Bell subs in can.

    i would probably pay up to $250 for center ice. it's that good. $149 is still a fair deal.

    Welcome to the end of the era of "Thank You Fans!" Oh well, I'd pay $250 too for it. It is that good. Of course, $129 seems like a real fair price.

    COX is charging 149/169 as well. Totally worth it of-course. :) :)

    You'll get all the games broadcasted in SD and those games broadcasted in HD will be listed with the other HD channels (which are in the 800s on ExpressVU).

    Stop saying it's such a bargain! They're listening. Next year it WILL be $250.:sarcasm:

    I have to say I'm a little disappointed in the price increase, but it's still worth every penny.
