As for CBC and Sportsnet, forget it. Sportsnet/TSN/RDS aren't aloud to use any footage from the 1998 through 2006 Olympics because CBC did them and the two companies (CTV and CBC) don't work well together at all.
Sportsnet and TSN are most certainly not under the same umbrella. Sportsnet is owned by Rogers and TSN by Bell. Even though they teamed up to buy MLSE, they are still fierce rivals. Rogers objected to Bell's purchase of Astral.
