Here’s more bad news for DIRECTV subscribers who love hockey in high-def.
InDemand, the distributor of pay packages to cable operators, said today that it will extend its free preview of the NHL Center Ice hockey package by three weeks to cable operators.
That means that subscribers to Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Bright House Networks, Cablevision Systems, Bresnan Communications and Midcontinent will be able to watch up to 12 games a week for free in HD during the three week preview.
It also states that DirecTV viewers will presumably only be getting one week. Cable has fired a pretty good shot at DirecTV it seems. We’ll see if this deal can get done.
