Pissed off With TV Coverage of Raptors
 
Im just looking to vent here, and im wondering if others feel the same way,

the television coverage of the toronto raptors is brutal this year.. i mean the first month or two you couldnt even watch a game unless you had sportsnet one or tsn 2.. and all the big games are always on TSN2 or sportsnetone.. this is just a scam.. as if were not paying enough these days..

what ever happened to the sunday games on CBC? i dont mind the game being on raptors TV every now and then thats reasonable.. but comon to put like almost 2 months of games on extra channels, and have like 2 games a week on these premium channels is too much

What I don't like is the video quality of the HD broadcasts. I have a 1080i tv with Rogers hdtv and whenever I watch Jays or Leafs or even other basketball broadcasts the hd quality is top notch...but with Raptors broadcasts they are pixellated on any closeups. I know my tv isnt' top of the line but it's on ly on Raptors broadcasts I have the issue :(

I have no problem with the coverage. I get all those channels + NBATV. I'm good. :)

funny, i've seen more washington games than raptors

like seriously do these companies think were made out of money? Im already paying at least 60 bucks a month, and to not be able to watch almost 2 months of the beginning of the season, and then all these wed/ friday / sunday games that are all to often on tsn2 is a bit much

like i said before i dont mind there being a game or two every so often on raptors tv or some special channel, but they do it way too often..

and i hate watching sports on my laptop.. unless its soccer

soccer on a laptop? :puke:

anyway, with the package i have i've never had to pay extra for those channels.

It's not just a problem with sports its a problem in general with Canadian tv.

You just can't get the channels you want without getting completely ripped off.

In order to get one channel I want, it's "cheaper" to get 10 additional channels I don't want.

jarryd bayless is balding, its his fault

lankganglia 12-15-2010 06:10 PM

my cable provider (cogeco) isn't friends with rogers so I am not able to get sportsnetone currently unless I were to change providers

I liked the games on cbc last year...and why doesn't the score carry raptors games anymore?

I brought this up not too long ago and was dismissed as a bitch so I will now pass the torch onto you my good man. d:Db

Fortunately I have all the channels (don't know if I have to pay for SN1 after free preview expires) right now, but I understand where you're coming from. It's frustrating for all these new channels to come out, and not having them.

pawlukj 12-15-2010 07:24 PM

i want raptors, i want raptors, i want raptors

if you want raptors, just take the nba league pass, and a cable between your laptop and your tv, and you will be good.

actually it's what i do, and i can watch all the game i want (all nba), and i live in france.

so maybe you can only buy nba and not all the other stuff you don't need.

but i don't know nothing about canadian channel, but in france it's the same shit channel problem. so i prefer buy only nba league pass.

hopefully the scammers known as rogers can take all my money, buy this team and make something of it. then there would be something to complain about missing out on at least.
