TSN2: 5 Games & 1 TBA
NBC: 1 Game so far, I imagine that will change
CBC: 2 Games (A coat hangar and a 1.03 piece from Radioshack could pull in these games, so I'm not including them.

So not counting the CBC broadcasts, that brings the blackout total to 12 Games, exactly 25% of the schedule. Keep in mind all games are available to watch within 48 hours of their initial broadcast. This might be the time to consider trying out an ip blocker/proxy which would bypass all of these problems and provide you access to Netflix US, Hulu, etc.

My concern, like other past GCL subscribers, is TSN2. Last year, the channel picked up games the day of or without any warning and the blackout policy still applied.

Anyways, with the season only 48 hours away, I thought this might be some food for thought as the expression goes.
I now have TSN2 and SN1 (for hockey and tennis) so I won't have to worry about this anymore. It was a major pain in the ass to have games blacked out at the last minute on GCL because TSN2 picked them up.
