Default Tim Chisholm's TSN2 Update

For those who know Tim he's being a writer for TSN for the last number of years and today at the RealGM he shared a little insight to the whole TSN, Rogers and MLSE debacle.

Here's what he had to say:

However, I'm being led to believe that the issue is a non-starter, that things should be finalized quickly and little to no games will be missed this season by Rogers subscribers. All that's going on are the kinds of negotiations that occur any time a new network is launched, and is only being made so public because of the nature of the programing available on TSN2. The channel should be included as part of the same sports programing package as TSN and thus should not incur an additional subscription fee. Of course, as is always the case with these sorts of things, nothing is done until it is done, but it's probably time to start shifting the worry onto that iffy bench, because that truly deserves it.

Thanks all, and don't stop pressuring TSN, Rogers and MLSE, either, it really does make a difference.

Dunno ... but maybe I can persuade Tim to come visit us here more often. We'll see though.

This just about made my day (as some of you may know my existing hate towards cable companies and shitty canadian sports channels). Hopefully Tim speaks no lies.

honestly - it's a numbers thing. Right now that place has them. Maybe not for long though.... the way RF is growing - we're definately RF'n closing some ground.

Anways, i'd rather have quality than quantity.

Hihihi ... I already sent an email to Rogers, asking them to confirm that I can watch all Raptors games with my current subscription otherwise I will cancel my service and start shopping for other cable service provider. They didn't answer yet:2gunsfiring:

Or we could send him some doubles with extra hot sauce and have him on the can for the next 12 weeks.

they replied to me after a couple of days - i sent them a similar email. They completely ignored my "threat" and told me that they have no update at this time. Actually, it almost looked like they implied they don't have any plans to carry it either - but I know that's not true.

I love Tim Chisholm. Make no secret of that. He's a fan at heart and writes what he thinks. He should be given a press-pass, be seated next to the Raptors bench and then watch the reporting fly.

Little to no games doesn't cut it for me. It better be no games.

I am tired of the excuses and B.S. I use to work at TSN as well and they only care about Hockey. They screwed over Raptors Fans last year on New Years and they are doing it again It really is that simple.

As I said on Eric Smith's blog the only thing they did right was HIRE JACK.

Here is the answer from Rogers customer service representative:

Quote:
Thank you for taking the time to write to us, we appreciate your use of
our online customer service.

In your recent email, you asked if Rogers will not be broadcasting all
of the Raptors games this season.

We apologize for any inconvenience. There are some games which will
only be shown on TSN2. Raptors TV will still be showing a lot of the
games.

We regret to inform you that TSN has decided to remove their Alternate
Feed TSN2 (Rogers channel 401) and it is no longer available on the
Rogers Cable Network. We can understand that not being notified can be
an inconvenience and we do apologize.

TSN offered this channel to Rogers on a trial basis. To provide
feedback, we suggest you visit www.tsn.ca or contact TSN directly at
1-416-332-5000.

Concerning TSN2, we do not have any information at this time on whether
this channel will be broadcasted on the Rogers network. Rogers is
currently in discussions with TSN about TSN2 but has not announced
plans to offer it as of yet. We do appreciate your interest and suggest
that you continue visiting www.rogers.com for updates.

Thank you for choosing Rogers. Should you have any further inquires,
please contact us at www.rogers.com, or call our Customer Service
Department at 1-888-764-3771, 24/7.
