I only know Shaw service, so just the markets that they provide service for, but under the new bundling (other packages like "Digital classic" may be different), the personal TV, which is basic, has Sportsnet in every city (Winnipeg included, although that doesn't matter much for NHL now). Other providers like Telus, or MTS, might have it differently.

I don't agree with the "national exposure" argument either, but I think the trade-off of more Saturday afternoon games in order to be on regular TV, doesn't fly that much. Many people use Saturday afternoon as an errands day, and miss the games.
