Not sure how many of you subscribe to a Sports Season package (NHL Centre Ice, MLB Extra Innings etc...) but Ive run into this strange gap that for some reason never has been fixed by Time Warner, and I'm assuming other cable providers.

So this past year we got the NHL package which runs from Oct to Now. Baseseball seasons overlaps it, and at least on TW they share the same channels. So during the first week of the season, they provide a Free Preview for everyone, then shut it down.....except they can't shut it off for those with the NHL package since the channels still need to be left open for hockey.

Now I'd run into this years ago when I first got the hockey package. Then I stopped purchasing the package @ 6 years ago. Picked it up again this year....and this gap still exists. In the past it would stay on till after the all star break when MLB extra innings would run another free preview and then shut off everyone who didn't subscribe. So everyone would get @ 90 games of the baseball piggybacked onto the hockey package. I"m assuming that's still the case since I still have baseball running on my cable system.

Has anyone else run into this extra bonus by picking up the hockey package?

Bumping because this idiosyncrasy is still in play. I ended up getting the whole baseball season piggybacked onto last years NHL Center Ice package...and now it looks like the Hockey Package is back in play again, even after the Free Preview was finished on Sat. I'm still getting all the games coming through. I guess I"ll ride this as long as I can and hope these morons never figure this out since now I've gotten a whole MLB season at no cost and for now, looks like some of the NHL season.

Hey your Mounties are doing awesome this season.

They flip flopped with my Huskies, usually their records at this point in the season are opposite.
