Dear icenetwork.com subscriber,
Many of you have expressed interest in the renewal process for the upcoming 2008-09 season.

I also note from a recent call to their billing and subscription customer service number, IceNetwork has now outsourced that department to the Philippines. I had to ask the responder to repeat themselves numerous times to understand what they were saying. Good luck!

so they are partnering with NBC fully then? though the only thing I don't see is Worlds... interesting.
All Hail Queen Yu-Na!!!!!!
If anything, they probably won't announce anything until next year because I don't know what NBC will show at Worlds.

I can do without the Disson but I must see competitions in their entirety.
btw, They did mention that my subscription will automatically be renewed. Did they not?
Correct, Joe. Provided the credit card you gave last year (or whenever you subscribed) has not expired.
As for NBC - It depends, I think, on how long their contract for the Winter Olympics goes... I haven't heard if they also get to broadcast the 2014 games or not.
I think the bidding process for television rights to 2014 is still ongoing
