Angry Registered to complain publicly..

Love the Raps, lurk here often. But why is the 2nd game of the season on TSN2?!! Argh...I don't have the option to get this channel right now. They got big ratings on the last game and this will kill momentum as most people don't get this channel. Ridiculous.

This really irks me too. TSN is the fox news of Canada, but instead of radicial right-wing themes, it's arrogantly dominated by hockey and base CFL football.

Hopefully there's a decent stream available.

I think in a perfect world it would be best that the Raptors would only have One Broadcaster. However; This is not the case it shall be TSN / TSN2 / Score/ CBC and I don't know if Raps TV went solo with a couple this year.

I dunno what to say get off your butt and get TSN 2. I know it'll be a ratings nightmare but if Basketball gets enough ratings it will previal.

I agree that it's total BS that so many games are on a channel that many people don't have. Ridiculous.

However, I don't blame TSN for this: I blame the cable and satellite providers. Should TSN simply stop trying to get games because they aren't being carried or are being carried in strange ways?

For instance, as I said in another thread (but I'm still mad about it so I'm going to repeat it here), Rogers carries every major sports channel, and even some niche channels, in my basic HD package - The Score, 4 Sportsnet channels, Raps TV, and Leafs TV. Inexplicably, however, they put TSN HD in a more expensive package so I'd have to subscribe to dozens of unrelated channels in order to get it. This is clearly punitive on Rogers' part - they're trying to squeeze TSN out.

kinda off topic, but Bell does a really lame thing with Gol Tv. I can't just subscribe to Gol TV on it's own. No, instead i have to also get a bundle including the Fishing channel, the hunting channel and the fighting channel. yeah awesome. ... I've since dropped gol TV from my package.

How much does it cost? Do they send you a receiver that connects to the internet (to your tv) Or do you have to use your computer (and hook the computer to your tv) to see proper HD?

I was thinking about getting this but then I read the fine print which stated blackout rules apply, which means that any local games broadcast on local channels will not be available for viewing online. So unless you have a non GTA IP address you are SOL for home games. Kinda shitty when you think about it.

The reason that most of you dont get tsn2 is because the cable companys wants it to be a normal sports channel and "tsn2" wants it to be a paid for channel.

So they are still fighting. I got lucky with Mountain Cable, so I have it.

This is why I'm really happy I don't have Rogers.
The satellite providers allow for much easier access to all the channels I want.

When I signed up with bell and picked the sports package it gave me score/sportsnet/tsn/tsn2/raps tv.

We would have likely gone with Rogers in the first place if their packaging system wasn't completely and totally trash, but regardless I'm happy with my service.

I finally have TSN2 since I got the specialty packs with Rogers.

Thank God because I would go insane if I had to miss 20-something games again this season.
