Default Is Raps TV worth it?

I want to catch more games, so I was thinking of getting a box so I can get Raps TV. I know a lot of you guys have it and I was wondering:

-Do they show only Raptor games or do they sometimes show other teams playing?

-Do they show Raptors-only playoff games or other playoff games as well?

I appreciate your answers.


Go gurkang!

They play alot of other games.And apparently Raptors tV won't be showing any live Raptor games at all.And they never show Raptor playoff games.If you want to see alot of games not involving the Raptors (other then repeats) get it!It's worth it for me.Plus they play non Raptor playoff games.

Also, if you miss a game, you can catch the game in an hour. Also, they have a few other neat things.

One thing i really like is Raptors Heartbeat and the Full court Press show (Round table discussion) on thursdays, and Hoops is great as well.This channel is well worth it.

Thanks for the info, I'll probably get it as I rarely get home in time to watch any live games

Too bad they don't show playoffs tho.

They show replays of the Raps playoff games and they show live feeds of other non-Raptor playoff games.

I'm partial to the "games in an hour".

That right there makes it worth it.

they seem to always play the late west coast games and they always have TNT's coverage on thursday nights, which is effin' sweet. i had rapstv the past two seasons, and catching GSW games, as well as laker and suns' games makes it worth the extra 1.99 every month.

Raptors TV is okay. I just hate that it's not in HD still.
If you're at least a casual fan, I think it's worth it.

I like the Raptors Today show as if gives me insights daily with the on-going issues with the team.

I also like the live games (from the West most of the time). But get this... those games are in HD. But the Raptors games are not... haha...

I say, it's worth it.

Give it shot. Besides, with all other sport channels paying most of their attention to hockey (even poker, golf, and CURLING sometimes get more airtime), it's nice to have a 24hr basketball channel.

It's essential now...

Last night was the first night I felt the impact of no basketball on Sportsnet.

I'm so used to catching a west coast game when I'm geting ready for bed. Last year they would've been airing the Jazz/Clips game, but last night there was nothing there.

i love it... but only because its HD.
you get a bunch of Raptors games - which i must match... and they sprinkle alot of NBA games throughout the week as well.
strictly for NBA games its worth it, but during the offseason its HORRIBLE.
