The Versus national games like tonight's are not shown anywhere else on any other channel and are not blacked out anywhere. It should be available on D* wherever you live.

Not sure exactly what you mean about not being shown on any other channel. Some previous Versus games were shown on the Versus channel (non-HD) and also the HD feed was put on the INHD channel (pre-empting normal content) on Comcast (owner of Versus). For tonight's game though the listings say INHD2. Only problem is that few people actually get INHD2 anymore, which will fold soon.

Versus broadcasts are exclusive, there are no local blackouts.

Doubtful. INHD is showing NBA tonight, that's why NHL gets pushed to INHD2. For those of you who don't have INHD2 you will have to wait until 11 EST to watch in HD on INHD tape delayed. You can watch it live in SD on Versus.

Versus has a deal with INHD to show the HD feed of their NHL coverage (when available) for all cable subscribers, not just Comcast. It doesn't preempt normal programming on INHD. Next month the Versus/Golf HD channel will be up and running to show the games on.

Okay I got it. I was thinking about FSN-HD, which does preempt INHD programming locally for certain Pens games. thanks.

The Sens/Red Wings game should be an interesting watch tonight. Ken Daniels will call the game from between the benches on FSN Detroit.

And thankfully it looks like the Vs. game is not the Red Wings so 95 should have the FSN Detroit feed.

I will say I've been impressed with DirecTV by continuing to show NHL games on 95 even after the NBA started up.

I don't see why DirecTV can't have a channel in the 90s exclusively for hockey and another exclusively for basketball, like 95 and 96, for example. So we can have at least one game daily.
