Raptors TV To Go HD

Toronto Raptors Network will now have to convince cable and satellite companies to carry the enhanced signal as part of their service, which can be an issue because of the amount of limited bandwidth HD channels suck up.

However, one industry source not affiliated with Toronto Raptors Network said that "as a Canadian HD channel with an established brand, Raptors HD will do very well."
