A person familiar with the discussions told fadoo that an announcement of the agreement should be expected this weekend, likely on Sunday. No specifics of the deal were revealed, however it is believed that, as a result of the agreement, Rogers Cable customers with the VIP package will begin receiving TSN2 almost immediately and automatically.

TSN2 was launched on August 29, 2008 as a subsidiary channel under an existing TSN license, Simultaneously, a high definition version (TSN2 HD) was launched. The channel promises more than 800 hours of live events in addition to repeats of programming which aired originally on TSN.

TSN2 carried 25 Toronto Raptor games during the recent NBA season, in spite of the fact that these games were unavailable to Rogers customers in Toronto. Recently, TSN2 and Rogers announced that the network would carry five Toronto Blue Jay games exclusively, beginning with a series against the Boston Red Sox this coming week. It is believed that TSN2's carriage of these games was part of the agreement to be announced in the next few days.

They have a new VIP package with new channels included at 65 per month. Raps TV is included. I don't even know what the hell I have. They keep changing shit and then charging you for stuff that was included before. Rogers sucks.

True that. Bell and Rogers are so far apart and Rogers has that commanding lead

It's called a monopoly, which makes it easy to suck and make loads of cash doing it.
