Cool. Much appreciated. Do you know if the NHL Center Ice thing is available and free for non-HD customers? My brother loves hockey but won't be getting set up for HD until November.

this is from the email, sounds like for everyone;


Preview NHL CENTER ICE for FREE. NHL CENTER ICE gives you 40 match-ups per week with select games in HD. Get a free preview September 29–October 9. Early Bird offer: four payments of $37.25. Offer ends October 9.

The NHL Center Ice always has a free preview the first week of the season and you don't need to have the HD package.

There's also a Starz freeview in the first half of October.

I wanna say 11-14 if memory serves me right.

Just checked & mine is same way. The email said ALL 9 channels, including showtime channels counting 71, 537, 537HD, 538, 538HD, 539, 540wHD, 540w, 543. So really there's only about 4-5, but hey their FREE, I'm not complaining:)

I don't care all that much for Showtime (used to have it years ago), but seeing AND hearing it in HD really temps me. :cool:
