I was once a subscriber to Time Warner cable; they had the Center Ice package - however in many cases only 1 feed was available (mind you this was several plus years ago prior to the whole HDTV change).
I was once a subscriber to Charter Cable - where I live the local franchise didn't offer Center Ice, and the overall service was horrible (Charter Cable throughout the USA has the worst ratings in cable tv).
I was once a suscriber in Dish Network - overall they were pretty good...They'd offer both feeds in most cases - however usually 1 feed was in HD (most of the time it was the home feed)...Last year I switched to DirecTV because of the FOX Sports fiasco.
Now that I have DirecTV - I'm in heaven...9 times outta 10 both home, AND away feeds are in HD.
From what I understand, and have heard from those "in the business" - cable is limited as to the # of channels that they can carry thus limiting the # of channels that they will offer the Center Ice programming in HD; satellite doesn't have those restrictions, and is capable of offering more for your $$$.
