I asked the Verizon FiOS twitter account about this yesterday. They responded this morning that NHL Center Ice would be available for $49.99 for the season. There is a free preview from January 19th to January 21st.
It did not say that when you could subscribe before the 19th though ... I am a new FiOS subscriber since November, so I am still getting used to their interface for managing channels, etc.
Must be by location. The only HD channels for NHL are 1470-1474 5 channels. The forum post above says tune into channels 1475-1488!!!! If the games aren't in HD I will never buy the package. What an embarrassment. On DTV I used to get every game in HD and both teams broadcast as well
talked to verizon, only 5 channels are HD for NHL CI. Im actually having DTV installed monday. this on top of other issues with fios tv have left a sour taste in my mouth. i was previously with dish but looking forward to DTVs programming and hardware
