Yea, I just noticed that too (NHLN-HD).
I guess Charlie's answer to the question: "will we see new HD?" is: "NHLN-HD is new (to you)"!
Make sure you have the Platinum package I get it free. I had to call up a CSR to get it but I got without any trouble.
If you have the NHL Center Ice package you get NHLN-HD on channel 625.
If you have added the Platinum package theNHLN-HD is on channel 403.
Versus is also only in the 250 programming package, so with the playoffs coming up in a couple months you're probably going to want to stick with that package.
Nope, I've got Classic Gold with Gold HD and it was just turned on for me.
Of course, given the way Dish names its packages, it might be that Gold = Platinum, but it isn't presented that way under my account on the DN site.
Dish changed the HD package price now you get both regular HD + what used to be called Platinum for $10.00 and Platinum is no longer listed on the Dish site.
NHLN NBA TV and the other Platinum HD is now in the $10.00 price.
Well, all I know is that I used to pay $10 extra/month for Platinum (so I'd get MGM, etc.) then some time ago I cut that out and my bill went down by $10/month. I've done nothing to my account since. Although Dish subsequently removed Platinum and some posters indicated that one could then get the Platinum stuff for free I didn't, and that included NHLN & NHLN-HD which went Red for me when I made the change. They just came back about a week ago and the rest of the old Platinum stuff is still Red.
To avoid frustration, I'd actually avoid calling.I would give Dish a call that is what I did and I got it as my above post pointed out.
