    CBC will show the SUI-SWE as the early game tomorrow (10:30am EST), and of course the CAN-RUS game at 2:30pm EST.

    TSN will show the FIN-USA (starting 11:30am EST) game joined in progress after an 8am Curling game - fine, I can live with that...

    But what might be the best game of the day, CZE-SVK (3:30pm EST start) will not be on Canadian TV at all!! Instead, TSN will bring us the first round of the WCG Accenture Match Play Championships.... :madfire:

    Would not hockey fans be more interested in the last half of that game after the Canadian-Russian game is over? Not to mention the Czech and Slovak immigrants who are here? :rant:

    In 2002, TSN played 3 of the QF games in their entirety (obviously CBC had the CAN-FIN game).

    I'm hoping we could perhaps pressure TSN or CBC into picking up the Czech-Slovak game so we can watch it after the Canada game is done...

    TSN isn't showing the Champions League, Barcelona/Chelsea game either, and already I am sensing there is an uproar about that. The game will air later on that night.

    I'm disappointed we won't be able to see it, but I'm not surprised. Here in Edmonton, it seems like the CBC/TSN has been getting a lot of flak for showing too much hockey, rather than some of the other sports (I don't agree with it, since this country is all hockey!!!).

    Hey bud!

    What the hell? How can that be? I think some people just need a reason to complain... ;)

    Seriously the whole point of CBC farming out some the games to TSN was to show other sports. What they did in SLC was perfect: The Canadian game on CBC, the rest on TSN, so CBC can show other stuff....

    FYI, it'll be on The USA Network here in the States. I don't know if that's available to you up in Canada (it'd make sense for it not to, for obvious reasons, haha), but it is an NBC station, so perhaps if you get NBC, you might get that, as well. At the very least, perhaps people with super mega satellite/cable packages might find that to be one of them :dunno:

    They have not given any indication they will (they normally would). But again, I doubt it from the point of view that they will want to dissect the Canadian game....

    Nope, we only get "NBC" here.

    Looks like NBC is showing all four games in the States, live and in their entirety, on two separate channels since they overlap. USA and MSNBC here. Nice. Programming the DVR now.

    That is ridiculous. Four years ago we got every QF game in its entirety.Now we get this piecemeal crap.

    CBC should show it if anything. You have to honor your contracts, and the Match play championship is one of the bigger events that isn't a major...can't fault TSN

    Wow, here in the U.S. Universal HD is actually showing the Czech-Slovak game instead of the Russia-Canada game in high definition. A big, somewhat pleasant surprise. I imagine it'll piss some people off. I certainly wouldn't be complaining if they showed Russia-Canada but the Czech-Slovak game is more interesting on a lot of levels.

    RDS will probably have it.

    CBC and TSN didn't have the Sweden Slovakia game today but RDS did. :)

    If you get a cable package that includes MSNBC you will be able to watch the game. If not phone around to some bars to see if they have MSNBC

    CBC was supposed to show the Russia vs U.S.A game today also, but they figured people in Canada would rather watch figure skating. :shakehead

    :madfire: Just getting off work, and I have found this out as well, good thing I recorded the game on CBC! :shakehead

    It doesn't matter, CBC was supposed to show it as it was scheduled on their website for the past few days and even this morning, they decided to show Figure Skating instead.

    No, there is no contract - TSN has just purchased the rights to broadcast it....whether they actually do is up to them.

    Besides, this is only the first round of the tournament. There are weekly golf tournaments, the Olympics are only every 4 years.
