We really going to end up with 3 stations battling each other?
I fully expect we'll see TEAM 1260 re-branded as TSN 1260 in the not-too-distant future now that Bell Media has bought in.

. . . Don't be surprised if SPORTSNET becomes a player on the local radio airwaves as well. Word is, they're after an AM property (maybe CKUA) to compete with TSN.

. . . 630 CHED is the rights holder for Oiler broadcasts for the upcoming season and then the deal is up for renewal. Both TSN (1260) and SPORTSNET, if they draw in, will contest those rights.
I really hope not, CKUA is way too good and has was too storied of a past to make room for another sports radio station.

Can't they get a new frequency, or are we at the limit or what? I really have no idea how that works, especially in respect to distances required before you can re-transmit on the same frequency etc.
