Some possible good news if you have Dish Network...

Just heard from a friend who has a FTA receiver. Message on the screen says something like "Get ready to spend some time indoors, OLN is coming back to Dishnetwork, NHL coverage is back April 22nd"

I hope this is true but FTA is not regular Dish!

Oh and that quote is from a Flyers fan. :P

You guys are lucky you didn't have to sit through the stumbles and bumbles OLN went through earlier in the season.

These are their teams for the 1st Round Series (No Doc, JD, Rosen, Jim Jackson or Kenny Albert for obvious reasons)

NJ vs. NYR: Joe Beninati and Darren Eliot

OTT vs. TB: Dave Strader and Andy Brickley

COL vs. DAL: John Kelly and Neil Smith

Everything else is a CBC simulcast.

What's weird is just last week - Thursday, I think - I ordered what I thought was OLN on Dish... It was some cheesy Outdoor Channel. When I called to cancel, I specifically asked if OLN was coming back to Dish any time soon, and they guy said no way. Duh.

Anyway, I just upgraded my package to include 151, and will probably delete it after the playoffs.

Strader is a very good pbp guy, maybe 2nd to doc, loved when he did the ESPN games..

This is great news! I live in Va, I have DN (DTV is my only other option for programming) I actually purchased the Sports Package (20 regional Fox channels) yesterday hoping FSNY or MSG would not be blacked out in my area. I watched the Devils Pregame and then a 7pm **POOF** blacked out! I was pissed. I had to watch the other games hoping for highlights I also watched the scores on NHL Center Ice Extra! as well as listen to John and Randy. I was all over the place...kind of like this post.
