Jets on TV?
 
Has anyone heard anything about SHAW having thier Jets package available for this half season?

SensibleGuy 01-15-2013 12:30 PM

haven't heard anything but I just assumed it'd start up again with the season. I hope so as I'm counting on it...

WaveRaven 01-15-2013 12:35 PM

I am assuming I am still subscribed and am expecting it to be on the 1st game.

wpglax 01-15-2013 12:39 PM

Subscriptions need to be requested again (to both Shaw and MTS), and the package was not yet available when I contacted Shaw yesterday. Expected to be up in the next couple of weeks.

I spoke wtih Shaw yesterday. thety haven't gotten the pricing for the jets package yet so its not available. They have a free preview of NHL Game Center available until the end of january, So between that and CBC you should be able to watch all jets between those two until they have the channel up and running.

Next couple of weeks? I wonder if they will provide the game telecasts for free in the mean time? I will follow up today and report back what I find out

sorry it woul dhave been center ice then

Same for Shaw Direct if anyone has it, you should put your name on a callback list as they don't have pricing for TSN-Jets at the moment.

Thanks I was hoping you'd say that, but aren't those only out of market games ?

For example the Islanders are here on the 27/01/2013 wouldn't that be blacked out it's not out of market ?

i have no idea but if that's the case that's a big disappointment.

eitherway they "kind of" assured me that we'd be able to watch the game.

Question, home opener's on cbc right?

Yes .

Does anyone know what's going on with TSN Jets on Bell?

They didn't charge last season however word is that they will start doing so this season. If that's the case, perhaps we need to re-request it?

I still see it within my Subscribed channels, however it reads for viewing 2011-2012 games...

Not too worried since Saturday's game will be CBC, however I'd like to ensure I'm good to go for after that.

Thanks!

Update
 
Just got off the phone with Shaw. Channels 289 and 290(HD) will be free until February 1st. The package is $9.99/month after that. They don't have the price codes to imput the station. Gary (Shaw) said to call back closer to February 1st.

CBCnutcase 01-15-2013 03:33 PM

A friend of mine received this email.


NHL Centre Ice will be available on free preview until
January 31, 2013. Starting Wednesday, customers
can purchase the package for a one time rate of
$49.99. Shaw friends can enjoy 15 % off NHL Centre Ice as well.

Winnipeg Jets fans in the regional broadcast areas
of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, the Northwest
Territories and Northwestern Ontario can tune into
TSN Jets at the same great price of $9.95 / month.
They can expect to receive up to 38 games with their
subscription.

There is a tracker that you can get the channel added automatically without having to call back in.

I just assumed Bell was going to give it for free as an incentive to go with Bell, and make their money from charging the other providers.

MTS TV has it ready. Either call in or tune in to 168 or 1168 (HD) and just click ok to subscribe and you're good to go. It starts Saturday.

I was told by a CSR that it will be free again this year and included as part of the basic package for those in the region.

It appears CBC has made changes to their broadcast crew. To Jets fans' delight, the boring and monotone Rick Ball will no longer be doing Jets games. Rick will pair with Kelly Hrudey to cover Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.

The Jets will now be covered by Greg Millen and Mark Lee. Although, Mark Lee doesn't appear to be overly well liked.

Will every game be broadcast on TV in one form or another this year (i.e., on CBC, TSN or TSN Jets)?
