    NBCSports. But they may also show early round games on USA network or CNBC.

    There won’t be any TSN games all Sportsnet and NBCSN,
    Sportsnet has 2 4K channels on Bell, and there is usually a hockey game on one and maybe baseball or basketball on the other. They have 4K games every day. TSN 4K is a better picture than the Sportsnet ones.
    TSN only uses there 4K channels a few times a week.

    Even though other shows might not be in 4K, my tv up scales the HD feed. Maybe becomes the equivalent of 2k, not sure.

    When asking channel number you need to mention your provider, as there are several options.
    Canada doesn’t get NBCSN, but they do show weekend games on NBC in the afternoon.

    It’s on the app I doubt you’ll be able to get it without a subscription.
    I have no idea about TV.

    TSN has not had playoff games since 2014.

    I hate Sportsnet so I will be watching the opposing team's feed. Every other team is allowed to have their homers commentate on games, why can't we get Harry Neale and Joe Bowen back? Take me back to the early 2000s baby.

    There will also be a local Columbus broadcast. In the US, the local broadcasters can do their own broadcasts of everything before the round of 8 (traditional second round). This year, the local announcers will be calling the games off a monitor.

    I honestly don’t understand the surprised reaction of Leafs fans to the news that Hughson would be calling the Eastern hub games. That is the number one assignment and Hughson is the number one announcer. There was no indication when Cuthbert was hired that he would be supplanting Hughson as the number one announcer. That was just wishful thinking on the part of Leafs fans.

    One of you highlight guru's should do up mike johnson a highlight reel if they can. Seems rattled he can't show his kids anything from his career.

    I tried to listen to TSN 1050 today in the car, but it sounded like a different channel. No sports content. I flipped back and forth with other channels, but never heard sports content on it. They were doing movie reviews and a long RAV4 infomercial.

    Did something change?


    EDIT: I checked online now and it's sports.

    Matthews handled the Simmons drama well.

    i dont have a problem with how he handled it, and to make this a media vs player because player handled response poorly thing imo adds insult to injury and im a Jets fan. Worst thing he could do is apologize tomorrow. You cant violate someone the way simmons did matthews and he had absolutely no reason to except for a scoop, it was entirely morally unethical if not technically so.

    Just in case it gets lost that he went on to answer his question.
