Hopefully we don't have to pay for an extra package and that they just add it with the TSN2's and sportsnet ones

Can we expect Matt and Jack to return next year? And more, less, or the same Leo?
That's what I'd like to know.

If it wasn't for watching footy I'd cancel cable. Noone in our family watches anything on there anymore except for Footy and Ball. We just use netflix, or other sources that aren't cable.

Anyone know if there's a service like that hoops thing that's replacing the official NBA service for footy? Or any service for that matter like it for footy, or specifically, the EPL/CL/Europa?

Q: Why are the Raptors on TSN5?
A: Because TSN6 wasn't launched yet ...

I'd love for all basketball to be on a single channel, would save me $200+ a year ...
