Call your local cable or satellite provider to order!
NHL CENTRE ICE is a television subscription package of NHL regular season games that are played outside your local viewing area.
The hockey games included in NHL CENTRE ICE are locally televised games on regional sports networks and/or over-the-air stations.
You will not see games in NHL CENTRE ICE that are being nationally broadcasted on CBC, Sportsnet, Sportsnet One, Sportsnet 360, City, TVA Sports, TVA Sports 2, or RDS. (Sportsnet, TSN, and US regional games from outside your local market will be included)
WHAT DOES NHL®CENTRE ICE® OFFER FANS?
NHL CENTRE ICE is designed for you to be able to watch games outside of your local market (i.e. other than just your home team). It is the best way to follow the entire League.
Local games are generally available on your regional sports network (RSN) or an over-the-air network.
If you are in the local television market for a team, whether they are playing home or away, you will be blacked out of those games in NHL CENTRE ICE. In Canada, local games are broadcast on one of the regional Sportsnet channels and TSN, depending on the team.
HOW MANY GAMES CAN I EXPECT TO SEE ON NHL®CENTRE ICE®?
As an NHL CENTRE ICE subscriber, you will see up to 37 games a week (from outside your local viewing area) throughout the regular season, including a number of games in high definition.
In addition, please note that in certain rare instances, two teams may be playing each other in which neither local regional sports network is televising the game. In these instances, because the game is not being televised, we do not have a feed to utilize for NHL CENTRE ICE.
HOW MANY GAMES WILL I SEE IN HIGH DEFINITION?
The number of HD games you will see in NHL CENTRE ICE will vary across television service providers. For technical reasons such as channel capacity, one provider may choose to air both feeds of a game in HD, while another one may not air the same amount of feeds or games in HD. This is at the discretion of each television service provider and it can vary across NHL Centre Ice distributors and even individual service areas of a distributor.
In addition, please be aware that for a variety of reasons, not all HD game are available for use in NHL CENTRE ICE across all NHL Centre Ice distributors
WHY ARE THERE BLACKOUTS?
Blackout restrictions exist to protect the local television telecasters of each NHL game in the local markets of the teams. Keep in mind that blackout policies and restrictions are different for every sports package that your system may carry. (NHL CENTRE ICE is designed for the NHL fan who wants to see NHL games from across the entire NHL).
If you are located in a team's television territory, you have access to all locally televised games through your local television provider. You will not be able to see these games in NHL CENTRE ICE.
Blackouts are not based on arena sell-outs.
ARE NHL PLAYOFF GAMES INCLUDED IN NHL®CENTRE ICE®?
