    key word being regional games which means of you do not live in that market you do not get the games. this year early bird NHL Cenre Ice package is $205.00.

    TSN2 seems like a separate channel from the other TSN feeds. I'm with Bell satellite and I get TSN1,3,4,5 with the package I have with them but I don't get TSN2 which is an extra $7 a month to add for me.

    I guess by adding the Habs to TSN2 they're hoping people in the same boat as me who don't currently have TSN2 will add that channel since the big draw Habs are now on it.

    With the recent news that Bell is increasing their satellite TV rates by $3 on Oct 1st, 2017 for the second time this year (I already had a $3 increase on Feb 1st, 2017) I think I'll stick with watching Sens games this year. I can also listen to Hab games on TSN690 and I'll stream games if need be. The less money I give the thieves at Bell the better.

    I already downgraded my Bell satellite package after that CRTC joke they called pick and pay came into effect but I did save $20 a month. With 2 $3 price increases a year coming from Bell though it won't be long before that $20 savings will be gone again. Cable and satellite TV prices in Canada really are a joke.

    Not sure about the Sens but we were getting Habs games on SNE so seems like we should be good.

    On Trenton side of Belleville so slightly West but not in Trenton either.

    You won't be getting regional Habs games on SNE anymore. Only the occasion Habs national game. TSN2 has the rights now.

    Oh I know, we have TSN2 as well.

    I was just responding to the fact I should still be in the region then if SNE worked.

    Exactly, the boundaries of the region don't change, so if you were in-region last year you should be good this year.

    The non tsn games will be the national ones which will be found on snet, cbc, and city or any other Roger's affiliated channel.

    I don't know if tsn is picking up all the non national games or just a chunk of them.

    TSN2 is their "national" channel, as in it wasn't meant to cover a specific region like the other four (Pacific for TSN1, Mountain/Central for TSN 3, Ontario for TSN 4 and Atlantic for TSN5) .

    So what happens with it now? It's also now a regional channel for Habs games in the Habs region which will cost me an extra $7 it looks like to watch Habs games while I get Sens games included in my TSN package already.

    Also TSN2 isn't included in the lower packages with Bell satellite with TSN1,TSN3, TSN4 ,TSN5 so it's an extra $7 a month for TSN2. :shakehead

    **** you Bell along with your ridiculous prices and 2 BS price increases a year. :rant:

    I was at my parents house last night and it was blacked out here as well with Shaw cable (Sault Ste. Marie/Northern Ontario). Seriously, these networks are digging their own graves. They wonder why illegal streaming is so high, well now you know. I dont even bother with cable anymore. Won't post it here, but I found all my sources for games already online for free, so Rogers/Bell can go F**** themselves.

    That color guy was awful last night, whoever that was... actually the entire duo sucked balls. Is that what we have to endure?

    SNE games were national, the TSN ones are regional.

    You nailed it.

    The only reason TSN is picking up the English rights is because they're worth little to none (SN tried and, predictably, failed, so the league had to literally give them away) and that the production values won't cost them anything (as Fenway pointed out earlier).


    P.S. I don't have the figures, but, I'd bet it is under your 20% threshold even.

    I am surprised Bell wouldn't carry TSN2 without costing you more. I am not familiar with the provider, but it makes little sense to me considering it's their own channel.

    TSN2 will be a spill-over feed when it comes to the Habs games (and the Habs games only). I guess it makes sense, this is all about as little investment as possible (see my post above) from all the parties involved.
