    April 25 Red Wings vs. Oilers, Game 3, 10:00 PM
    April 27 Red Wings vs. Oilers, Game 4, 9:30 PM
    April 29 Mighty Ducks vs. Flames, Game 5, 10:00 PM

    Alright... I'll bite.

    - Can't Comcast pay for international flights??

    - Do their announcers NOT have any visas??

    :sarcasm:


    All seriousness aside, is there a specific reason they're doing this? I really don't care that OLN is doing it, I'm just curious.

    It would make sense to do this for all the edmonton fan's in western Canada that wanna watch there team when calgary's playing.........so does this mean the Canadian OLN channel will pick the feed up?

    Reason is money. TSN picks up some OLN and NBC games as well.

    I am really upset this year. I get Center Ice vis DISH network and they don't offer OLN. Center Ice isn't playing any of the games shown by OLN so I am just out of luck. :shakehead I called DISH and they said if enough people requested OLN they might offer it in the future.
    Jeez...first of all no hockey for a year, and then the Leafs miss the post season :p: , and now I can only watch certain games. Time to move to Canada!

    Ya that really sucks. Dishnet seems so anti-sports. You should have seen this coming though ... no OLN hockey on Dishnet all year long. Sounds like it is time for you to switch to Directv.

    I don't get why they show the American Game in western canada VS the Conflicting game between the 2 western canadian team's......I understand every station has there own right's and it's not like they can go out and broadcast whichever game they want, but there should have been better planning involved so fan's aren't forced to watch one game over the other when both Canadian team's are in the same region and at same times.
