I justed tuned in HDNet for this first time. I'm a hockey fan and I upgraded to HD mostly to watch the NHL. According to the "Title bar" on my Samsung 160 the Kings vs. Predators game is PPV (pay per view?)


I though HDNet was free.


Has anyone out there paid for hockey on HDNet?


Thanks,

Jim

HDNet is free if you have the HDTV package on DirecTV. The HDTV package doesn't cost anything, but I think you need a minimum of total choice programming to get it.

There is no HDTV package, just a notation on your bill or on line statement. You do need Total Choice or better to get HDNet.

The PPV is there on 199 because HD PPV movies are shown there at night. HDNET has, IIRC, 16 hours of programming per day.

I feel so lucky that I got in just under the wire when you could get Direct Select for $7.99 a month and that got you HDNet! We are grandfathered in but all those afterwards must do a Total Choice to get it!

Thanks for the response guys.


I have Total Choice and DirectTV said HDNet should be working. I'll have DirectTV try to reset my receiver tomorrow.

Go on line & verify you have the HDTV notation for your account. If it's not there, simply call them up and add it. If the CSR you get doesn't have a clue, ask for a supervisor.

When I got my Samsung SIR-TS160, the CSR didn't know what to do and had to send me to a tech rep who looked at the account and saw that the HD notation hadn't been set up, so if you have HBO-HD and no HD-NET, then that is the problem.
