It's even more absurd given that markets like BC, AB and SK are not bilingual. I could understand in Winnipeg where a sizable amount of the population speaks French and likely has access to RDS but neither SaskTel nor Shaw have RDS on a basic or even sports package here.

I believe you're right in that it's the first year RDS falls under national. I didn't have GCL last year but I did borrow a friend's for one game and had no issue on an RDS-broadcasted game.
