I know this is an older post, but I just found out today that U-Verse is no longer carrying the NHL Network. Now that hockey season is about to start, I just wanted to let all the hockey fans out there who have U-Verse know so that they don’t miss any games this season. I wish I would have seen the preseason games but I had no way to at the time. I was recently hired by DISH Network, and finally can watch the NHL Network with my new DISH service.
